Program description

Wildlife & Fisheries Biology & Management

The wildlife and fisheries biology and management (WFBM) curriculum is designed to develop an appreciation for the cultural, recreational, economic and ecological values of our fisheries and wildlife resources and to train students for positions in management, research, and law enforcement. It is a professional degree within the College of Arts and Sciences.

The program provides a thorough introduction to the basic sciences in addition to more intensive training in fisheries or wildlife ecology and management. In addition to the core of required courses, many electives are available allowing the student to pursue special interests in consultation with a faculty adviser and providing for a broadly-based education. The professional degree in wildlife and fisheries biology and management qualifies students for a wide variety of positions in state, federal and private agencies.
