WILDLIFE BIOLOGY

This curriculum emphasizes basic sciences, plant and animal biology, and communications skills for effective performance as a wildlife biologist. Students learn to view wildlife and problems associated with its maintenance from a broad perspective.

Seminar courses and supervised experience in the field with an approved agency provide opportunities for learning management of wildlife populations. Nearby wildlife management areas maintained by state and federal agencies are utilized to illustrate principles.

Graduates are eligible for employment by state wildlife resources agencies, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other governmental agencies as well as private landowners and commercial enterprises. However, students interested in the more technical phases of this field and in meeting standards for higher managerial positions should plan for graduate study.
