Dr. Red Duke Wildlife and Conservation Policy Program
Bachelor of Science and Master of Public Service Administration
Our five-year joint-degree program with The Bush School of Government and Public Service allows undergraduate students in Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management or Ecology and Conservation Biology to enter the Master of Public Service and Administration program at the beginning of their fourth year. The program integrates the science and practice of managing fish and wildlife populations with policies for these public resources on both public and private lands. Students are prepared for careers in conservation with a foundation in life and physical sciences, mathematics, and problem-solving skills that accommodate animals and their habitats within larger ecological systems. After completing the joint-degree, students are prepared for a wide variety of post-graduate opportunities including employment in local, state, or federal government, non-profit organizations, and private industry.
