Learn the intricacies of teaching outdoor and adventure activities to young people

Our highly-practical BA (Hons) Outdoor and Adventure Education course allows you to develop your skills and abilities in various outdoor and adventure activities.

As you progress through the degree you can specialise in the coaching, teaching, or applied psychology of adventure sports, as well as the physiological effects of these activities and the extreme environments they often take place in.
