Concentration:
Experiential Education

Concentration:
Experiential Education

Educators using the philosophy of experiential education learn how to construct meaningful learning experiences grounded in reflection, application and practice. These endeavors involve problem solving, teamwork, decision making, resolving conflicts, and reaching for new goals and opportunities. Brain-based research supports experiential education philosophy.  Students in this concentration examine the roots of experiential education as well as Dewey’s goals of ethical development, social justice, and preparing students to be active citizens in a democracy while avoiding mis-educative experiences.  Students explore the philosophical, psychological, and educational foundations, and learn to apply experiential education in a wide array of educational settings, including adventure education trips, expeditionary learning schools, ropes courses, adventure therapy venues, environmental and outdoor education, ecotourism, camps, and traditional educational settings.
