Park Ranger Training Program
The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ Park Ranger Training Program is one of only a few nationally accredited programs that provide the training required to work as a seasonal park ranger in law enforcement in the National Park Service. Students learn first-hand, from experienced instructors, law enforcement work within the park system and go through outdoor training courses. In February, students went through a training on what to do during a vehicle accident involving an animal (pictured). “This is my dream career, and I like that we get hands-on experience in everything that we do.” SBS student, Stephanie Lowe, stated during the training.
Creative Media and Film with Bill Carter
Bill Carter is an Assistant Professor of Practice in Creative Media and Film in the School of Communications and he teaches several classes including Documentary Production, Screenwriting and Filmmaking techniques. He was also the director of the documentary film Miss Sarajevo, which won multiple awards such as the Golden Hugo Award. Bill literally is an assistant professor of practice due to the experience and success he gained as a writer, filmmaker and environmental activist around the world over the last decades. We recently interviewed his class CMF 336 – Documentary Production, pictured above, to find out what his students think about his class. These students stated unanimously that the best thing about this class was Bill Carter himself. He took the time to work individually with each student to develop the documentaries. Some comments from students included: “He is the best teacher I’ve had at NAU”, “He got the best out of me”, “I wish he would teach all my classes” and “He is a very hands-on teacher”.
