Wild populations cannot be managed without an understanding of how ecological, human, social, economic, political and behavioral considerations interact in the natural world. Fisheries and wildlife students learn about the interactions between and among the natural and social sciences.
Students can choose from several concentrations: conservation biology, fisheries biology and management, water sciences, fish and wildlife disease ecology management and preveterinary studies.
Fisheries and wildlife graduates have a strong base in the foundational and applied sciences of natural resource management, as well as an understanding of the cultural, recreational and economic values of biological resources.
