Plan and Manage Events

Try RPTA if you'd like to work in environments that allow you to exercise your leadership and problem-solving skills. Challenge yourself intellectually while you travel through a course of study, the only boundary being the edge of your imagination. Learn to plan and deliver dynamic events locally or internationally. Cruise to an exotic destination while meeting and studying with professionals in other fields.

Do you enjoy traveling to open air festivals, concerts, resorts, or casinos? Why not make it your career! Learn by experience in commercial, public, and nonprofit environments doing what you enjoy---putting smiles on peoples' faces. Contact Dr. Kat Broughton to set a course of study!

Internship My professional internship (RPTA 499) with The Downtown Rock Island Arts and Entertainment District included working with vendors, performing artists, volunteers, and community leaders in the event planning arena. I was very fortunate to be able to interview for and accept a permanent position with the organization, and now as District Coordinator, I am able to continue my experience here.
