The program offers a non-thesis and thesis-based master's degree and a PhD.
Master of Science in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology candidates must declare a minor within any established curriculum at NC State or as an interdisciplinary minor. A minor generally consists of at least nine graduate credits approved by your advisory committee’s minor faculty member. The courses must be taken during your degree program and all must be within a given curriculum or among the appropriate departments to satisfy a logical interdisciplinary minor.
Faculty and students in Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology conduct applied research to help guide sustainable solutions for conservation challenges locally, regionally and globally. For a look at topics graduate students have pursued, please visit the Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Library of the NC State Graduate School.
