The Wildlife and Fisheries Resources Program prepares students for careers as wildlife and fisheries biologists, toxicologists, fish hatchery personnel, conservation officers and planners, animal damage control specialists, as well as a wide variety of natural resources communication specialists and managers. Courses in the major are lab-based with ample opportunity to gain valuable field experiences.
Graduates from this program typically follow one of two career tracts – employment with state or federal resource agencies, non-government organizations or private consultant firms, or they continue their education in graduate school.
