Environmental and Outdoor Education

The bachelor of applied science (B.A.Sc.) in Environmental and outdoor education prepares students for professional careers in outdoor education allowing them to work in nonformal outdoor education settings such as nature centers; city, state, or national parks; college outdoor programs; or for commercial agencies. Core components include program planning and delivery, education methods, physical skills development, management, facilities coordination, evaluation, and principles of recreation. The recreation major is a four-year curriculum including one full semester of field placement in an outdoor educational setting.

This major provides professional training for nontraditional education settings that may not require a teaching license as a prerequisite credential. Refer to the environmental education emphasis under the teaching life science and/or teaching earth and space science majors for training that includes a teaching licensure.
