Adventure Education and Wilderness Leadership

About the Concentration in Adventure Education and Wilderness Leadership

Vermont's beautiful mountains are the ideal setting for you to hone your outdoor leadership skills. Whether you want to lead group tours and expeditions, teach rock climbing or other adventure skills, work in a therapeutic-recreation setting, or pursue other career opportunities involving the natural world, you'll gain the advanced training and skills you need to succeed in this growing field.

In addition to learning techniques to lead outdoor programs, you'll build your knowledge as an educator with courses in environmental science, education, biology, and psychology.
