Outdoor Leadership and Adventure Tourism focuses on outdoor management, planning, provision, and management of controlled activities in a commercial context as well as the development of sustainably packaged outdoor and adventure products and innovative operational strategies.
Adventure tourism is a fast-growing sector within the tourism industry. This reflects the fact that travellers are moving away from traditional holidays in the pursuit of risk, excitement, tranquillity, and personally challenging experiences in the great outdoors. It is predicted that the demand for unique experiences and ‘authentic’ outdoor experiences will continue to grow worldwide in the coming years.
The two main components of this minor are Outdoor Leadership and Adventure Tourism. The students will explore adventure tourism and outdoor activities. Adventure refers to taking a risk and moving away from the comfort zone. This may be intellectual, spiritual, or physically.
Outdoor leadership is a combination of outdoor skills, theory, and interpersonal skills.
The minor combines practice and theory and focuses on the development of entrepreneurial skills and competencies. Key activities are adventure activity management, planning, development of sustainably packaged adventure tourism products and innovative operational strategies and training in instructional trip and tour planning, leadership, and individual and group development.
