Department of Leisure Sports and Recreation

The department was founded in 1996 as part of the Institute of Physical Education and Sport Sciences. At the beginning its main goal was to introduce a variety of recreational sports in the curricula of PE teachers and to support the rganization of different practical aspects of their future activities. Courses like tourism and training camps in e.g. skiing and snowboarding, rowing and horse riding were always attractive and motivating for students. In these camps students learn the theoretical and practical aspects and acquire competence for organizing such activities for pupils and the public as well. Later on the course Theory and Practice of Recreation was introduced in the curricula of PE teaching. Since 2006 the Institute and the Department joined the Faculty of Health Sciences in developing the curricula of Recreation bachelor program. Since then the department have taught important fundamental courses in the bachelor training of recreation. A few years later teaching of recreation and leisure at Master level was accredited to the University by the Institute of Physical Education and Sport Sciences. The different trends in sport, recreation and leisure are introduced to the students taking part in sport science studies (PE, Sport manager, Leisure and Recreation). Besides teaching compulsory and non-compulsory courses, members of the department help students in their thesis work, create scientific projects for students, take part in joined scientific projects with other institutes of the University, publish in Hungarian and also in international journals, present their work at different conferences.
