Company Description: 

Surrounded by New Hampshire's rivers, lakes and mountains, students majoring in Adventure Education have the opportunity to develop technical skills in canoeing, rock climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, wilderness expedition and winter camping.

The Adventure Education program focuses on developing teaching skills, leadership skills, technical skills and professional development. Through a combination of classroom work, internships and field experiences, students also explore the theories, philosophy, history and ethics of the Adventure Education profession.

Adventure Education majors have a unique opportunity to participate in the 15-credit Immersion Semester which occur largely through extended mountain backpacking expeditions, lasting 4 to 15 days.

Requirements for the degree include 60 days of documented leaderships experience completed outside of the program, and a choice between a practicum and clinical experiences or an internship. A Wilderness First Responder certification is also included in the program.
