Course Description

This is a course for anyone who prefers to work in the outdoors rather than in a cubicle. Our degree combines environmental experiences - bushwalking, rock climbing, cross-country skiing and canoeing - with naturalist studies, preparing you for a range of careers in outdoor and environmental education and adventure guiding. With further study, you'll also have the ability to work as a qualified teacher in primary or secondary school.

We have a 30-year history of teaching outdoor education and offer a practical, hands-on approach. You'll undertake up to 140 days of fieldwork, including an 18-day bushwalking trek through the Kosciusko National Park or an 18-day canoeing trip along the Murray River. Other expeditions have included trips to the Australian Alps, the Murray basin, the Grampians, the Victorian coast, as well as to South-West Tasmania, Broome and the Whitsunday Islands.
