    The outdoor education program acquaints students with various aspects of the outdoor education industry.  The curriculum focuses on outdoor education, biological sciences, and physical sciences, and prepares students for careers in outdoor recreation, leisure industries, and outdoor adventure activities. Contact your advisor at Williston State College to determine curriculum for the first two years.

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Outdoor Education.
