Outdoor Adventure Courses

La Trobe University

Bachelor of Outdoor Education

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.

You'll have the choice of two majors: outdoor education and educational nature tourism.

The outdoor education major is designed for motivated students seeking careers in outdoor education, adventure guiding and environmental education, and explores areas such as sustainability education and eco-tourism. Past graduates of this major have found work with outdoor travel companies, as instructors in school camps, in adventure management and in environmental education.

Our environmental and sustainability education major explores natural history as well as the social and cultural aspects of the environment. This could lead to a role such as working as an education officer with an environmental or government agency.

Our nature tourism major focuses on the study of natural environments, environmental interpretation, land management and outdoor and field naturalist practice. This prepares you for careers in the nature tourism industry, in national parks, zoos, botanical gardens, and in private nature tourism operations.
