The Department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management curriculum is designed to provide graduates with an integrated knowledge from biological, physical and social sciences that gives rise to long-term solutions for today’s environmental challenges.
Through the Bachelor of Science in Rangeland, Wildlife, and Fisheries Management (RWFM) degree program, we strive to educate and train students to become the next generation of stewards, scientists, and policy makers, who promote ecosystem sustainability through sound management practices. Through fieldwork, research, and facilitated internships, students will experience a range of learning opportunities that extend beyond the traditional classroom, preparing them for real-world application of knowledge.
Our degree equips students with the skill sets, educational background, and ethical standards needed to obtain career building certifications required in our natural resource professions. This program provides the sound foundation that prepares students to continue their education into graduate and other professional programs or pursue a wide range of careers in leading conservation and science-based agencies at state and federal levels, as well as private land enterprises and non-governmental organizations. In response to the complexity and diversity of the field, the B.S. in RWFM program offers four unique specialization tracks to further tailor a student’s degree to best meet post-graduation needs.
