SUNY Adirondack offers a one-year certificate in Adventure Sports: Leadership and Management.
Students will engage in outdoor education and expeditions to develop leadership, management and hands-on experience with outdoor adventure sports.
The Adventure Sports (AVS) program benefits from SUNY Adirondack’s proximity to some of the most pristine outdoor recreation in the country. Top-notch canoeing, stellar snow sports and majestic mountain peaks are the hallmark of the surrounding Adirondack State Park, Vermont’s Green Mountains and Massachusetts’ Berkshires.
Our Adventure Sports students enjoy small class sizes, access to dedicated faculty and holistic learning in the fields of consumer behavior, psychology, management, entrepreneurship and business management/marketing.
FIELDWORK & INTERNSHIPS
Our students learn through hands-on fieldwork; Backcountry Living, Canoeing and Eastern Mountaineering form the backbone of our curriculum.
A wealth of local and regional sport- and recreation-focused businesses provides students access to real-world internships and crucial career networking.
