Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Department
The mission of the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation is to foster education, expand knowledge, and reward scholarship, using multi-disciplinary approaches, for the purpose of understanding, managing, and conserving biological resources. The primary goal of our teaching, research, and extension programs is to develop and communicate the knowledge necessary for enhancing the conservation and management of wildlife and their habitats for the greatest aesthetic, ecological, economic, and recreational values.
The Master of Science thesis program in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation: (a) prepares graduate students for entry-level professional positions in areas of wildlife biology and ecology, natural resource management, conservation, and (b) provides a solid scientific foundation for further graduate work leading to the PhD degree.
The Master of Science, non-thesis program in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation provides advanced training for students in technical and professional aspects of wildlife management, conservation, and public education, emphasizing written and oral communication of scientific information.
