A letter from Professor Lynn Anderson

New York State University's Professor Lynn Anderson recently took part in our public debate - 'Access v the Environment - where do you draw the line?'

Professor Anderson has kindly sent a letter about her time with us in Preston: "I write to formally thank you for the wonderful opportunity to visit the University of Central Lancashire as a part of the Distinguished Visitor Programme. I very much enjoyed meeting with faculty, staff, and especially students as a part of my visit to your campus.

"I was impressed with the Outdoor students who attended several of the sessions I presented during the week. The students had interesting ideas and stimulating contributions to discussions, as well as thought-provoking questions.

"I felt there was great benefit comparing and contrasting our fields of study between our two countries, both for the students and for myself and other faculty. I was pleased to see the large number of students who attended the public talk I gave, 'Going Outdoors: The Therapeutic Benefits of Nature.'

"The students seemed highly engaged in the topic and some have requested follow up information from the talk.I especially thank you all for your wonderful hospitality I received throughout my stay. Your graciousness was truly appreciated, and I could not have had a more enjoyable stay.

"If there is anything I can do in follow up to my visit, please let me know. Again, thank you for an exceptional experience at the University of Central Lancashire as a Distinguished Visitor."

UCLan Outdoors wishes to thank Professor Anderson for visiting us and we hope to continue to develop our collaboration in the future.

MA Outdoor Practice

The Masters in Outdoor Practice is designed to enable those working in the broad professional environment of the outdoors to engage with postgraduate study. It is delivered by a team of practitioners, educationalists and researchers in the outdoors. The first year of the course involves taught modules which are delivered at weekends, with subsequent modules providing the opportunity to specialise in your own field of practice through research and/or innovation. A special feature of this innovative course is the flexibility to accommodate a diverse range of interests and promote learning through a portfolio of assessments that appropriately meet the needs of students. Thus, the ethos of the course is to enable students to follow their interests and design their own pathway through a master's programme.
