This workshop presentation on international curriculums in the field of parks, recreation, leisure, cultural services, and travel/tourism comments that the literature is replete with articles addressing what the field is about, but not about curriculum issues, models, and structure. It reports an international survey of 12 college educators concerning their curriculum's mission statements, domains covered, course titles, and other highlights. The survey found no universally accepted curriculum structure or format. The paper describes the WICE program, which is an innovative international university program offering 20-month certificate courses and short-term thematic courses in The Netherlands. Highlights of information from the "International Directory of Academic Institutions in Leisure, Recreation and Related Fields" are then presented, including general information; statistical data; and organizational charts of educational systems in such countries as Cameroon, China, Israel, Japan, Austria, Denmark, and France.
