Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences major requirements are specifically directed at preparing undergraduates in the area of wildlife and fisheries conservation and management. This coursework primarily revolves around educational aspects addressing organisms, their habitat and their human users. Imbedded in these courses are additional skills that students need to be competitive in the natural resources disciplines. These skills include communications, teamwork, leadership, ethics, statistics, technology, global competence, critical thinking, and problem solving. Most employment is with state and federal natural resource agencies. Each state has natural resource agencies that hire students with wildlife and fisheries sciences degrees and multiple federal agencies hire graduates from the program. In addition, employment opportunities exist with local and tribal governments, non-governmental organizations, and private industry. Many undergraduates continue their education by seeking advanced degrees.
