Majors & Minors in Adventure Education

Through the interdisciplinary umbrella of the liberal arts, the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Adventure Education prepares students in the scholarship, communication, and technical skills for a variety of professional leadership and instructional opportunities.

Students learn how to lead and teach in a variety of settings that use outdoor and adventure environments to promote positive change in individuals, organizations, and society. They learn how to use human-powered outdoor pursuits including backpacking, ropes-challenge courses, rock climbing, mountaineering, and river paddling to expose individuals and groups to new growth opportunities.

Students develop the leadership, teaching, and facilitation skills to promote a sustainable environment and help others apply challenge and adventure to a broader life context. Adventure Education students study the “why” behind the “what,” the theory and philosophy underlying challenge and adventure, to be critical thinkers and informed professionals.
