Outdoor Education Immersion Semester

Semester-long wilderness experience providing future teachers, counselors, and group leaders with a foundation to planning theory, goals, and safety practices of an extended wilderness expedition. The course is field-based, meaning that the classroom is remote wilderness settings. Key in this instruction is the participant's involvement in a group development experience while at the same time learning the skills, knowledge, and awareness necessary to conduct safe, ethical, and effective wilderness-based learning programs. Substitution with courses from the National Outdoor Leadership School, Outward Bound, the Wilderness Education Association, or other qualified programs is possible.
