The Bachelor of Science degree in Fisheries & Wildlife Science offers flexibility. The undergraduate curriculum is composed of a core and a Specialization which the student designs according to individual interests and goals. Each student designs their own Specialization to complement the basic science and social science core. With the guidance of a faculty advisor, diverse advanced offerings are selected by the student. Required internships and senior capstone courses also can be developed to support individual educational goals.
Some sample Specializations might include:
Large Mammal Ecology
Endangered Species Conservation Biology
Fish & Wildlife Law Enforcement
........many others are possible.
Students can choose to spend one term at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, an extended campus facility located in Newport, where we have courses emphasizing the marine environment. Many of the required courses could be taken online through Ecampus. Curious about some of the Ecampus Faculty? Check out this video on our World Class Faculty. We also offer a Fisheries and Wildlife minor through Ecampus.
