Program Overview

Liberty University’s Graduate Certificate in Outdoor and Adventure Sport program is designed to strengthen the student’s real-world skills and prepare them for outdoor adventure leadership. Students should enhance the necessary ethical, leadership and management expertise that is required for many careers within the outdoor recreation field. The program’s curriculum is delivered using both biblical and moral standpoints. The program’s credit may also be transferred to the Master in Science in Sport Management Degree with a Outdoor Adventure cognate at Liberty University.

The graduate certificate’s three required courses are Foundations of Outdoor Adventure Sport, Outdoor Adventure Programming, and Leadership & Admin. of Outdoor Adventure Sport. Each course within the program is worth three credits. All of the program’s courses may be completed online; however, two of the program’s courses also offer a residential format. The cost of tuition for each full-time credit hour during the 2013-2014 academic year was $490.

Students will have opportunities to study, discuss and analyze a number of different topics within the outdoor recreation field. Courses will cover topics such as the philosophy, ecology, design, history and trends of outdoor programs. Throughout the program, the curriculum will also build the students understanding of the design, development and implementation processes of outdoor adventure programs.  In addition, the program’s courses should provide students the opportunity to evaluate the modern challenges of recreation delivery system management, trends of outdoor recreation public policy, and the status of eco-tourism in today’s world.

Liberty University provides graduate certificate students access to a number of different academic resources. Students may use the online library, Liberty Online Communities, academic advisors, and Online Writing Center.
