M.S. in Fish and Wildlife Management

The M.S. in Fish and Wildlife Management serves the needs of students whose thesis research addresses an applied fish or wildlife management problem. It may be a terminal degree leading to professional employment as a fisheries or wildlife biologist, but may also lead to a Ph.D. in Fish and Wildlife Biology or other discipline. Coursework associated with this degree tends to emphasize applied fish and wildlife management.

The student's graduate committee will work with the student following a required oral qualifying exam during the second semester in attendance to finalize one of the following required plans of study. The committee may require additional electives for completing a Master's degree in the Department of Ecology. Statistics courses may be recommended as electives.
