Consider an academic minor, a double major, or a well-chosen set of electives to enhance your career options. Career and graduate school options for Outdoor Education Majors are enhanced when you add course work in a complementary field of study such as Native American studies, eco-psychology, business, education, environmental education, natural sciences, or a well-chosen set of electives within the outdoor education program. Talk with an Outdoor Education faculty member about complementary ways to enhance the strength of your degree.
Go to Graduate School in outdoor education, environmental education, natural history, teacher education, therapeutic recreation, sociology, psychology, adventure therapy or many other areas.
Become an educator in an environmental learning center; an outdoor education instructor skilled in inclusive design and instruction; an outdoor recreation program coordinator at a college or in a community; or a wilderness skills instructor and counselor for at-risk youth.
