This 89-day semester is jam-packed with an entire curriculum dedicated to the field of outdoor education. You'll be with other professionals and students ages 21 and over who want to learn outdoor skills and leadership as they further develop their teaching skills. This is your chance to translate your theoretical knowledge about outdoor education into reality.
The NOLS Semester for Outdoor Educators means more time teaching and more focus on topics like group management as well as field and in-town administrative practices. By the end of your semester, you'll be a competent backcountry expeditioner, the first step to being ready to work for outdoor educational programs across the country.
