Wildlife & Fisheries ResourcesReceiving a solid background in biology, ecology and natural resource management, students are fully trained in both wildlife and fisheries fields. Students completing the program meet the requirements for professional certification as either a wildlife biologist or fisheries biologist.
Our curriculum is designed to meet professional certification requirements by the Wildlife Society and the American Fisheries Society.
You can specialize in Wildlife Science or Fisheries Science. Can’t decide? Specialize in both.
