The academic home of the Outdoor Leadership (OL) minor is with Kinesiology. The aim of the OL minor is to prepare individuals to lead others in backpacking, canoeing, kayaking and/or rock climbing activities. Training in generalizable leadership skills (e.g., judgment, group facilitation and risk management) that can be used throughout life will be provided. Students interested in this pursuit should consult with Phil Friesen (Outdoor Pursuits Director) or the chair of the Kinesiology department as early as possible, as this program requires at least 2 years. The credits required can vary (18-33 credits) due to course selection options and the possibility to test out of certain requirements.
