Course summary

What makes Outdoor Education MA at Worcester special?

The MA in Outdoor Education is a postgraduate qualification designed around the needs of outdoor professionals. It helps them to explore the theory and practice of outdoor education and to relate it to their own practice. The course can be studied from the workplace or from home, and outdoor professionals can choose the amount of study that fits their circumstances.

The MA in Outdoor Education is supported by online seminars, online resources, action-learning groups and one-to-one tutorials. At the heart of the programme are the Work-Based Projects, which are negotiated with the tutor and allow outdoor professionals to gain enhanced knowledge, skills and expertise in their field.

What will you study?

Our courses are informed by research and current developments in the discipline and feedback from students, external examiners and employers. Modules do therefore change periodically in the interests of keeping the course relevant and reflecting best practice. The most up-to-date information will be available to you once you have accepted a place and registered for the course. If there are insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this might not be offered, but we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative.
