The community educator studies train specialists in adventure and outdoor education. Adventure and outdoor education are based on experiential and activity-based learning methodologies and aim at supporting the growth, development, well-being, and agency of individuals, groups, and communities.
The basis of the studies is a multidisciplinary theoretical framework, which is put into practice in versatile authentic learning environments, such as lakes, the sea, forests, and the fells and wilderness of Lapland. During the studies, students learn to plan and carry out safe adventure educational processes for different target groups and to evaluate and develop adventure educational activities.
The degree program for community educators provides students with a wide range of skills for employment as a professional in the diverse area of adventure and outdoor education. After graduation, students have multiple employment opportunities within the different sectors of national and international working environments. Community educators with an adventure educational orientation can be employed, e.g., in the fields of youth work, organizational work, education and training, well-being services, or nature- and adventure-based entrepreneurship.
