Ne öğreneceğim?

What could be better than a career sharing with others the wonder and beauty of nature? To travel with your skills to the ends of the earth and back. To bring joy and happiness to those wanting to learn more about the world they inhabit.

The Adventure Expeditions and Interpretive Leadership program will prepare you to share your love of nature and adventure full-time with careers in Natural History and Adventure Program Development and Environmental Research and Attraction Development. You'll manage authentic learning experiences that respect local ecological principles in their natural surroundings.

To prepare you for the dynamic and complex eco-tourism industry, you'll study marketing, and business strategies, along with ecological and science-based courses in flora and fauna, geology, adventure guiding, environmental interpretation and education, management of national and heritage of natural areas, and wilderness first aid. You'll graduate with a holistic view of the natural world, with knowledge of the conservation, tourism, and business sides of the eco-tourism industry.

When finished the program, you'll have the skills to develop and manage resorts, trails, and interpretive projects. You'll be able to design, deliver, and evaluate programs that will affect people deeply, and serve your passions for the earth in all of its wonder and beauty.

Co-op option also available.

Other Information

This two-year Ontario College Diploma program is delivered in an accelerated format over four continuous terms. Students begin the program in September and complete the following December, sixteen months later. Two terms of academic work are followed by one co-op term and then one final academic term.

While neither a Criminal Reference Check (CRC) nor a Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) are required for admission to or participation in this program, some employers require one or both of these in order to be considered for a co-op work opportunity. If a student's CRC or VSS prevent them from securing an appropriate co-op work experience, they are permitted to complete the academic program and graduate with a diploma. They would not, however, meet the requirements for a co-op endorsed diploma.

Learning Outcomes

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

1. Perform interpretive naturalist activities using ecological, environmental and geographical concepts related to flora, fauna, and wildlife.

2. Instruct and safely guide others in eco-tourism activities and adventure expeditions such as canoeing, snowshoeing, backpacking, and camping.

3. Design, deliver, and evaluate meaningful interpretive programs for a variety of audiences.

4. Develop and present a marketing plan for eco-tourism and adventure expeditions.

5. Develop a business plan capitalizing on opportunities in the adventure expeditions and eco-tourism industries.

6. Provide safe environments for interpretive and outdoor activity by using current and relevant risk management concepts and strategies.

7. Complete all work in compliance with the appropriate legislative and regulatory requirements of the eco-tourism and adventure-tourism industries.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this program will have the ability to develop, operate and manage attractions, resorts, activities, trails, and interpretive projects. Graduates will be able to design, deliver, and evaluate meaningful interpretive programs for a variety of audiences. They will be prepared to begin their careers as leaders within the eco-tourism industry.
