Outdoor Education major
Our Outdoor Education program utilizes class discussions and field experience to teach:
You’ll learn to teach adventure activities, team building, and environmental awareness in the context of an outdoor setting and from a biblical worldview. Our curriculum is designed to give you the skills, knowledge, and training necessary to both facilitate personal growth and interpret the natural environment.
And then we take it further. As a student, you’ll design, implement, and administer outdoor education programs that are safe, challenging, and enjoyable. Our professors assist with enthusiasm—they’re passionate about building relationships and will challenge you to be a reflective, well-rounded educator.
