Environmental Science and Leadership
Associate of Science Degree
The core of this program is a NOLS semester course for CWC credit in which you must concurrently enroll in the following courses: BIOL 2045 Natural History of Regional Ecosystems, EDUC 2050 Outdoor Education and Leadership , and G&R 2050 Environmental Ethics and Management. Longer semesters will also include the required Wilderness First Responder (HLED 2010).
Consult the NOLS website or catalog for specific dates, locations, and formats of outdoor leadership semesters, or directly contact the National Outdoor Leadership School at 307-332-5300. For detailed course descriptions on specific courses and seasons go to www.nols.edu. Registration is coordinated through the CWC Registrations and Records Office.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and application forms for NOLS courses. All wilderness courses require students to have the physical ability to carry a 65 pound backpack and hike 70-100 miles in rugged wilderness terrain. Regardless of the wilderness experience, four recurring themes are stressed: judgment and safety; leadership and expedition behavior; outdoor skills; and environmental ethics.
The Environmental Science and Leadership program is excellent preparation for leadership careers in natural resources and environmental science. A bachelor’s degree prepares you for work as an environmental field technician, conservation scientist, wildlife technician, community organizer or as a teacher of environmental science.
