Adventure Education

The Adventure Education major will prepare the individual for a career as an adventure educator. The student will gain the theory, knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to successfully plan, implement, administer, and supervise educational experiences in the outdoor setting. Adventure education programs focus on the interpersonal relationships and personal growth that can occur during outdoor adventure activities and includes ropes course experiences, extended wilderness trips, day activities such as rock climbing, caving, and canoeing. Students have the option of spending a semester on a NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) course in the Pacific Northwest, Rocky Mountains, or Desert Southwest.  There are additional fees for courses that involve certifications and/or travel.
