• Overview
  • Shielding life in the wild.

    The human population continues to grow. This means the threat to wildlife continues to grow, too.

    In this program, you will learn how to minimize this threat through the sound conservation and management of wildlife species and their natural habitats. You will study relevant environmental, societal and political issues, and build a strong science-based foundation in chemistry, biology, ecology, genetics, physics, soils, geology and other areas.

    The field of wildlife resources is connected closely to other areas of natural resource management. That’s why, in this program, you also will explore how the field interfaces with disciplines like range management, forest management, environmental science and the social sciences.
