Many populations of fish and wildlife have rebounded from historic lows due to decades of careful, science-based management. Nevertheless, biodiversity is still in decline for a variety of wildlife species; large mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and aquatic species are particularly threatened. Our graduate program provides students the scientific understanding and technical skills to contribute to management and conservation of fish, wildlife, and their habitats.
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.
