Wildlife biologists may also be responsible for the study and management of non-game, endangered species or game animals and plants. This program is intended to prepare students for entry-level positions with state and federal agencies and private companies, and for the pursuit of higher academic degrees. The Program in Wildlife Biology is designed to produce well-rounded students; thus, we require our students to enroll in disciplines such as mathematics and statistics, chemistry, physics, communication, social sciences, and humanities. By using specifically identified coursework areas and mentoring, we will aid students in developing their intellectual capabilities in working with natural resources and people within that discipline.
