Wildlife and Natural Resources

What is the Wildlife and Natural Resources Program?

As a Wildlife and Natural Resources Program Major, you will earn a Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree that offers two emphasis areas, Aquatic and Terrestrial.

Each emphasis area meets certification requirements of the American Fisheries Society (AFS) or The Wildlife Society (TWS). 

This major emphasizes understanding of fish and wildlife ecology and management, with practical skills obtained during laboratory and field exercises. After completion of the degree requirements, graduates are prepared for positions with state and federal agencies, tribal departments and conservation organizations, or higher academic degrees.

Program Goals

  • To provide students with the necessary background to successfully pursue graduate study towards a professional career in wildlife and natural resources.
  • To prepare students upon graduation to enter field positions in government or private industry.
  • To supply students with the necessary coursework to obtain professional certification as associate fishery or wildlife biologists.
