This course has one prerequisite course: AUPED 184. Students who wish to participate in AUPED 281 must also successfully complete the application process.

In this course, students have the opportunity to develop self-awareness, enhance personal and group leadership skills, and study group dynamics. This course includes a 2½ week excursion to a homestead in the Northwest Territories where participants learn skills associated with advanced arctic survival, dog-sledding, and wilderness navigation. Students also study narratives of the North and are expected to develop their own narrative of their experience.
