You love the outdoors and want to share this passion with other people. You want to lead, inspire and teach others. You want a degree that will give you the opportunity to explore alpine areas, rock climb, paddle and bushwalk.
When you graduate, you want options to work in different areas across your career. During this degree, you'll learn leadership, teaching and people skills and put these into practice in a variety of settings.
Your subjects are a blend of hands-on and theoretical work, and include outdoor leadership, community and bush environments, and coastal environments. Your studies will focus on blending hands-on experiences, such as camps, and fieldwork, with the theory learned. Your future may see you teaching in Australia or overseas, or running outdoor education centres. Perhaps you'll work in resorts, councils or community organisations. And maybe you'll start your own ecotourism company.
