PhD Recreation and Leisure Studies

Improving lives through research in recreation and leisure

The PhD program provides opportunities for advanced study and research in the field of Recreation and Leisure Studies.

The degree culminates in the completion of a doctoral thesis, which is expected to make an original and substantial contribution to knowledge in areas such as sport, therapeutic recreation, tourism and events. Students are also provided with opportunities for teaching and research assistantships, and are encouraged to participate in undergraduate teaching.

Program overview

The primary objectives of the program are to foster each student's ability to:

  • conduct high calibre research and to contribute to the growing body of knowledge in the field
  • analyze and evaluate programs, policies and organizational structures aimed at understanding and improving the use of free time and quality of life
  • apply and disseminate this knowledge to practitioners, policy makers and managers

The doctoral program is designed for students who plan to teach and/or pursue research careers. It provides a training opportunity for students seeking careers as scholars, researchers, and policy analysts for government, private sector and university positions.

Areas of study

By combining theory and practice, we are deepening our understanding of the positive and negative aspects of leisure and developing new ways to enhance quality of life for individuals, families and communities.

Our  faculty members  are active scholars recognized for the high quality and quantity of their published work, in a variety of areas in the field including:

  • Leisure, health and well-being
  • Leisure and community
  • Leisure, space and place
  • Leisure and social justice
  • Leisure organizations, services and policy

The PhD program may be completed either on a full- or part-time basis, but must be completed within the following time periods from completion of the master's degree, unless an extension has been granted  (see Graduate Studies Calendar for more information) :

  • 12 terms | 4 years (full-time from master's level)
  • 18 terms | 8 years (part-time from master's level)
  • Doctoral thesis

The PhD program requires a minimum of 9 graduate courses (0.5 unit weight each) beyond the Honours BA level. For full details - including  course descriptions  - see the  Graduate Studies Academic Calendar .

Students entering the PhD program following completion of the MA degree in the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies (University of Waterloo), or an equivalent, will typically have already completed 5 of the 9 required courses, and therefore will need a minimum of 4 additional (0.5 unit weight) graduate courses.

Student evaluation

A review of each student's progress takes place during the month of May each year. Students are evaluated on several criteria, i.e., coursework and resulting grades, progress with regard to the comprehensive examination and thesis work and, where appropriate, reports submitted by the students regarding their research and teaching assistantship activity. A grade average of at least 75% must be maintained.

PhD comprehensive examinations

The purpose of the  comprehensive examinations  is to ensure that doctoral candidates have a broad and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the field of Recreation and Leisure Studies, including: 1) different methodological and analytical approaches used in the field, and 2) the broad substantive areas of leisure studies. The process is designed to enable candidates to develop a solid grounding in and understanding of leisure studies. This then provides a foundation for the critical analysis demanded by the dissertation proposal and final defence. The comprehensive examination consists of one written and one oral examination, and the process will normally be completed over a period of six months.

A  PhD thesis proposal  is required of all PhD students after passing the comprehensive examinations, and before proceeding to data collection. The proposal should contain a detailed statement of the research problem and its significance for a body of leisure-related theory, a precise account of the methodology or research techniques to be employed, plus a detailed outline of the proposed data analyses. The candidate will be required to present and defend this proposal before the thesis committee. The final thesis report based on the completed research must also be successfully defended to satisfy the thesis requirement.

Computer/Technology Requirements

Students are responsible for ensuring that they have a Microsoft Windows 10 based desktop or laptop system that meets or exceeds the following general personal computer technology requirements:

  • A desktop or laptop system running on an updated Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.
  • Minimum 256GB SSD storage and 8 GB memory.
  • An integrated or peripheral video camera, microphone and speaker system.
  • Reliable internet connectivity with Broadband capabilities (a minimum download speed of 5 Mbps) is recommended.

Niagara College will not be able to provide support for systems different than the above specifications. Any provided software may not operate properly. Academic software for your courses (supported under the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system) will be made available for download and remote use. Access will also be provided to remote high performance computer labs if software downloads are not feasible.

Note: There is no support for Chromebooks or Apple products for this program. ( learn more )

The technology requirements indicate there is no support for Chromebooks or Apple products. Can I still take my program if I have a Macbook or Chromebook?

For most programs, the recommendation is to have a MS Windows 10 computer (as outlined in the "Computer/Technology Requirements" section on this page) for an optimal experience and for ease of downloading academic software. The reliability of remote connections to college computers and software cannot be guaranteed for Macbook and Chromebook users.

The Microsoft Office suite products that are available free to Niagara College students though Office 365 do have versions that work with Macbooks and Chromebooks, and the majority of internet-based applications will work as well. However, some program-specific software is designed to run on Windows 10, and the successful download of these applications cannot be guaranteed. Our Learning Management System (LMS) at Niagara College is Blackboard, and while students can access Blackboard through an internet browser, for some assignments and tests there is a layer of security that uses a proctored browser. The proctored browser will not function on Macbooks nor Chromebooks.

Students assume the risk of a compromised virtual experience if they choose to participate without the recommended technology.

Computer/technology requirements may be subject to change without notice.

How Women Can Thrive in Business School

Women should be active in class, pursue leadership roles and build their network while earning an MBA degree.

Ways Women Can Thrive in B-School

A small group of business professionals sit around a table as they meet to brainstorm some ideas for the future of the company. They are each dressed professionally and have papers scattered out in front of them as they work together. The focus is on a woman of African decent who is pitching an idea to the group.

It’s especially important for women to raise their hands, speak with authority and participate actively.

Key Takeaways:

  • Build a support network for during the program and after graduation.
  • Actively participate in class discussions and extracurricular activities.
  • Maintain a healthy balance between school and your personal life.

Business school may look like a male-dominated specialization, but more women are entering and thriving in MBA programs.

Enrollment of women in 58 premier full-time MBA programs in the U.S., Europe and Canada increased in fall 2023 to a record 42%, a jump from 41% in 2022, 38% in 2018 and 34% in 2013, according to Forte Foundation, a nonprofit focused on increasing opportunities for women business leaders.

“Women who gain admission to the top business schools are typically high achievers, and this can put a lot of pressure on them when they enroll in an MBA program,” says Alice van Harten, a founding partner of admission consulting firm Menlo Coaching, where she advises MBA candidates.

She advises women to set clear goals before starting an MBA program and to “think about how they want to spend their time and effort and to get comfortable with imperfection.”

Triada Cross, who is pursuing a dual MBA and master of science degree in tourism, hospitality and event management at the George Washington University School of Business in Washington, D.C., says women MBA students have great potential for success, “but entering a historically-male dominated field can feel daunting.”

Cross, a U.S. Army veteran with a bachelor’s degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point in New York, says she’s found that it’s important to cultivate a community around you in B-school.

“Find your tribe of supporters and cheerleaders who will keep you motivated when the assignments, projects and finals get hard,” says Cross, who also serves as the executive vice president of GWU's Black MBA Association.

Here are several other ways women can plan to be successful in B-school.

Choose the Right Business School

Whether you seek to switch careers or advance in your current field, it’s important to do your research and choose the right program and school, experts say.

To find the right fit, look at business schools that have active recruiters from companies you’re interested in, events on campus and active alumni from the school, suggests Elissa Sangster, CEO of the Forté Foundation. Students should also look at whether the school aligns with what they want in terms of location, clubs, culture and other factors, she says.

“Do they have a strong percentage of female students plus female faculty and top-notch professors in the areas you need to grow?” Sangster says.

Be Active in the Classroom 

In class, it’s important to raise your hand, speak with authority and participate actively, experts say.

“Women can be successful in business school by actively engaging in discussions both inside and outside the classroom, asking questions and contributing their perspectives,” says Shaifali Aggarwal, founder and CEO of Ivy Groupe, an MBA admissions consulting company.

Actively participating can enhance learning and help demonstrate confidence and expertise , she says.

Sangster says it’s important to authoritatively speak up in class and to remember that "a way to engage the entire class is to share an idea others can build on.”

Being active in class also means making an effort to talk with professors, including scheduling to meet to chat during office hours.

“Connect with faculty and mentors and feel comfortable to ask for guidance,” says Senay Agca , chief diversity officer at the GWU's business school and a finance professor.

Having a close relationship with a professor or mentor may be advantageous after you graduate from business school, experts say.

Take on Leadership Roles 

By June 2023, women held 10.4% of leadership positions at Fortune 500 companies, per Fortune magazine. Meanwhile, 8% of S&P 500 CEOs are women and 45% of those women have an MBA or equivalent degree, Forte reported in 2023.

Taking on leadership roles early can help women lay the foundation for these types of roles during their careers, experts say.

Aggarwal says leadership roles in student organizations can include serving as a club president, committee chair or event organizer. “These experiences provide opportunities to practice leadership skills, such as decision-making, delegation and conflict resolution.”

Students should also get involved in leadership development programs or workshops sponsored by their business school or external organizations, Aggarwal says.

“These programs often provide training in areas such as team-building, communication and strategic planning – a strong foundation for succeeding in business school,” she says.

Build Your Network

Students can build their network by engaging with other classmates and alumni via student organizations, study groups and networking events, Aggarwal says.

“Women in business school can forge connections with people who can offer support, encouragement and valuable insights into navigating the business school experience,” she says, adding that female MBA students should seek access to mentorship, career advice and networking opportunities.

“Many women," van Harten says, "start thinking at this point in their lives about how they can combine a successful career with having a family, and for this it can be valuable to learn from other female leaders how they've combined a demanding career with having children.”

Sangster says it’s critical to build your network while in business school. “These are the relationships that will help you land your first post-MBA job and other roles throughout your career. Seek out women leaders that you might want to model for your own career path.”

Balance School and Life

While in business school, it’s important to find a good balance between school and outside life.

“Women should prioritize activities and commitments that bring them joy, fulfillment and balance outside of their academic and professional responsibilities,” Aggarwal says.

She says students should remember that “their well-being is paramount to their long-term success and happiness” personally, academically and professionally.

“Be resilient," Agca says. "Reflect on failures but move on with lessons learned. Have a growth mindset, be less risk averse, believe in yourself, enjoy the school life.”

And along the way, don’t forget to have fun and make friends, Cross says.

“Challenge yourself to balance socializing and studying because business school is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet a diverse group of people.”
