BALTIMORE (AP) - Plans for a bachelor’s degree program in adventure sports management at Frostburg State University are advancing.

A committee of the University System of Maryland Board of Regents approved the plan Tuesday during a meeting in Baltimore. It now goes to the full board for a vote as soon as next month.

The program would build on an associate’s degree offered at Garrett College since 1992. Proponents say most of those community college graduates want to earn a bachelor’s in adventure sports, and more than 60 percent of them transfer to schools in other states to get one.

Garrett College awards an average of 12 associate degrees in adventure sports per year.

Frostburg State currently offers a B.S. in recreation and parks management with a curricular focus in adventure sports.
