The Wildlife and Fisheries Science degree program provides an integrated program of study for students interested primarily in conservation and management of wildlife and fish species and their environments.
Two options are available for students:
This major is designed to provide a broad background in quantification, the humanities, the physical and biological sciences, and natural resource management. Graduates may pursue graduate-level education in wildlife and fisheries science or careers in management, research, or information and education.
Flexibility in course selection permits students to plan their programs in keeping with their specific interests, goals, and plans for the future. Students may fulfill the requirements established by The Wildlife Society for certification as a wildlife professional and the requirements established by the federal Office of Personnel Management for employment in wildlife biology. The program provides a firm base for graduate study.
