MA in Outdoor Education Leadership
Earliest start date
As informed professionals, outdoor educators are critical thinkers who can support positive change in individuals, organizations, and society. Outdoor educators understand ecological and human systems and help address some of the challenges facing society today, including health issues, environmental issues, social justice issues, and sustainability issues. Our goal is to equip students with the skills they need to impact outdoor education and related fields positively.
Students who select Outdoor Education Leadership will be engaged with a dynamic curriculum emphasizing applied pedagogical concepts, interpersonal communication skills, specialized technical skills, program design and administration, and/or focus on specific populations, processes, and/or environments. Many students explore the roots and practices of experiential and outdoor education in-depth and examine its many applications in private and public settings.
