Prescott College:

Founded in 1966, Prescott College is proud to celebrate its rich 50-year history of offering experientially centered undergraduate and graduate degrees both on campus and via distance learning. Undergraduate students work closely with individual graduation committees to design their own degree plans, pulling from seven study areas: adventure education; arts and humanities; cultural and regional studies; environmental studies and sustainability; interdisciplinary studies; psychology, counseling, and human development; and education. Graduate programs include adventure education, arts and humanities, counseling, education, environmental studies, social justice and community organizing, expressive arts therapy, adventure-based psychotherapy, ecopsychology, and equine-assisted mental health.

Noted as a College of Distinction, one of the Best 382 Colleges by the Princeton Review, one of the top ten Most Innovative Small Colleges, one of the Best Value Colleges in Arizona, one of the Best Online Master’s in Counseling, one of the Best Value Master’s in Counseling programs, one of the 13 most interesting institutions by the Fiske Guide, and a veteran supportive campus by the Arizona Department of Veterans Services. Collaboration is emphasized over competition and interdisciplinary inquiry proceeds alongside professional skill development. Its courses are problem-based and solution-oriented; students work together to solve both local and global issues and help shape a more environmentally sustainable and socially just world.

The Prescott College campus is located in the mountain town of Prescott, Arizona, nestled between the ponderosa forests and grasslands at the confluence of the Granite Creek watershed. The mile-high city is ranked a Top Adventure Town by National Geographic Adventure Magazine, and one of the 7 Top Trail Towns according to Trail Runner Magazine. With over 450 miles of multi-use trails, world-class mountain-biking, a thriving rock-climbing scene, and nearby lakes for kayaking and canoeing, Prescott is an outdoor paradise. The Grand Canyon, Phoenix, Flagstaff, and the red rocks of Sedona are all within a two-hour drive. The historic downtown is just minutes from campus.


Adventure Education

The Adventure Education department is seeking a talented, compassionate and skilled teacher. We define adventure education as an experiential process that takes place in challenging outdoor settings where the primary purpose is to build and strengthen inter-and intra-personal relationships, personal health, leadership skills, and environmental understanding. The field of adventure education holds tremendous promise for contributing to our society and environment in critical ways. We invite applications from passionate educators with solid academic backgrounds, research experience, interdisciplinary interests, excellent communication skills, and a sense of humor to join our faculty starting in August 2018. We seek candidates inspired by our mission to protect the environment and promote social justice. We are particularly interested in candidates who can contribute a multi-cultural perspective and the ability to bridge programs outside of their primary field. In addition to a masters or doctoral degree in a relevant field, we seek an individual who has significant experience teaching and/or guiding in remote field settings involving several of these activities: mountaineering, ski mountaineering, avalanche education, physical geography, interpersonal communications, group facilitation, whitewater river travel, emergency medical care, outdoor leadership, working with diverse populations.  Applicants must be able to teach in both field and classroom settings. Our field courses can last from three to ten weeks at a time.
