A concentration in Outdoor Education readies you for careers at outdoor recreation centers around the world, including places like National Outdoor Leadership School and Outward Bound. We should know. Your OS faculty members include four former instructors with NOLS, OB – or both.
Outdoor Education often attracts OS students who dreamed of guiding, only to discover that instructing is more dynamic. Look at it this way: As a guide, you’ll tie other people’s knots. As an instructor, you’ll teach people how to choose the right knot – and safely tie it themselves. And if guiding truly is your passion, we’ll help you tailor your OS degree for a good fit.
