Fisheries and Wildlife

Fisheries and Wildlife

Wild populations cannot be managed without an understanding of how ecological, human, social, economic, political and behavioral considerations interact in the natural world. As a fisheries and wildlife major at MSU, students learn about the interactions between and among the natural and social sciences.

Students can choose from several concentrations within Fisheries and Wildlife: Conservation Biology; Fisheries Biology and Management; Water Sciences; Fish and Wildlife Disease Ecology Management; Pre-Veterinary Studies.
