Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Outdoor Education
This four year programme combines an exciting mix of academic study and skills training in adventure sports. You will build an understanding of the therapeutic, developmental, and educational role of outdoor education and you will study the Irish landscape, safety, communications as well as teaching.
You will gain a range of National Governing Body awards in adventure sports such as rock climbing, surfing, hill walking, sailing, and kayaking. One day a week is spent on adventure sports practicals in venues including Achill, Connemara, and surf beaches in Mayo. There are also optional weekend practical courses which provide opportunities for specialisation in adventure sports.
For answers to many of the questions we are asked by prospective students, see our Student Handbook (external site).
