Graduate Degrees in Outdoor Teacher Education
This program is designed for classroom teachers, outdoor professionals, youth workers, or anyone who wants to more effectively use God’s book of nature in teaching and outdoor programming. Generally, the classes and field experiences involve examining, evaluating, developing, and implementing outdoor education programs. Activities such as canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, and rock climbing are included as part of many of the courses, but they are not the primary focus. Students can complete their coursework in three to four semesters and may choose from two attendance options. All students are required to complete an internship or practicum as part of their master’s degree coursework.
Visit the School of Education and Psychology section of the graduate catalog for more information about the outdoor education degree.
