BS Wildlife Biology & Conservation

The Wildlife Biology and Conservation BS degree program provides training in the principles, methods, and tools of wildlife research, management, and conservation. It is designed for students seeking careers in private, state, and federal organizations, providing graduates with the qualifications necessary for certification as a wildlife biologist by The Wildlife Society. The curriculum also lays a solid foundation for advanced graduate study. Faculty members within our program often hire undergraduate students for summer field work, providing great opportunities to gain job experience and to make professional connections. The program is allied with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment and the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences Fisheries Program. There are about 75-80 undergraduates currently enrolled in our wildlife program.
