Undergraduate Minor

Undergraduate minor in Outdoor Leadership

Add this minor to any undergraduate degree program at UW to develop skills and experiences that will position you as someone your peers and colleagues look to for guidance, especially in challenging situations. You’ll work with other students in the field and the classroom to problem solve, discuss ethics, develop outdoor skills, and practice decision making. The minor is offered in partnership with the University of Wyoming's amazing Outdoor Program, which provides dozens of trips, clinics, talks, trainings, and certifications each year, as well as equipment rentals and an indoor climbing wall.

The Outdoor Leadership minor from the Haub School emphasizes development of essential skills:


The Outdoor Leadership minor requires 18 credit hours. You’ll start with foundations courses in outdoor leadership and environmental science. Your concepts courses will cover field ecology, leadership, and ethics. You will also complete an applied field experience with the Wyoming Conservation Corps, NOLS, or a similar program. Finally, you must earn and maintain a valid Wilderness First Responder Certification to complete the minor. Click below to view the course plan and class options.
