Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation
The Wildlife and Fisheries Biology graduate degrees are housed within the Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation. Enrollment in these programs is open to students who have earned a baccalaureate degree in wildlife, ecology, biology, or a related field.
The Program offers these degree options: Master's of Wildlife and Fisheries Biology (thesis and non-thesis; on-campus), Master’s of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology (non-thesis; on-line), and a Doctor of Philosophy in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology. A formal dissertation is required for the Doctor of Philosophy degree.
The Master of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology degree (non-thesis option) has a new online delivery option for students with experience in natural resources who wish to enhance their professional degree skills. Students potentially include Federal and State Agency wildlife and fisheries employees, educators who wish to increase their knowledge about wildlife and fisheries biology, private industry professionals, and individuals with a variety of other natural resource backgrounds. The program is in a fully online format, allowing lectures to be available 24/7. Students who enroll in 2 courses a semester can complete the degree in as little as 2 years (3.5 years if 1 course is taken per semester). New enrollees are accepted in Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters as space permits.
