The MA in Outdoor Education provides a postgraduate qualification for managers, teachers, leaders and professionals in Outdoor Education who want to demonstrate excellence in their chosen field by achieving a recognised benchmark whilst being free to choose a learning route designed to meet their individual needs and those of the organizations in which they operate.

At the heart of the programme are the Work Based Projects. These are designed to equip students with enhanced knowledge, skills, practice and expertise in their field and may be chosen from a bank of questions or self designed. They enable the student to explore areas of their professional practice and develop new knowledge and skill within a specific context.

Students are encouraged to explore a range of learning areas in their work based projects and Dissertation modules, these might include:

  • organisational and strategic management;
  • teaching and learning in the outdoors;
  • personal development and experiential learning;
  • environmental and aesthetic aspects of practice;
  • international approaches to outdoor education;
  • safety and risk management
  • topics related to specific outdoor activities.

Key features

  • The use made of work based learning and action research methods in a structured and rigorous process.
  • An emphasis on using real-time business / organisational / theoretical issues as the basis for action, learning and change, providing benefits for both the individual and their organisation.
