HWC Option for Undergraduate Students

This curriculum provides the educational background for those students wishing to pursue a career as wildlife biologists with a strong background in wildlife damage management to resolve human-wildlife conflicts. Successful graduates of this program are eligible for certification by the Wildlife Society. Students completing this concentration may seek employment immediately following graduation; however, competition for positions may be intense. Students will be equally prepared to pursue one or more graduate degrees (M.S., Ph.D.) in Human-Wildlife Conflicts or other area of Wildlife Science.
