Wildlife and Fisheries Biology and Management is a professional degree designed to prepare students for state, federal, and other positions in resource management and conservation biology. The degree provides students with knowledge of the natural world, understanding of processes governing dynamics of wildlife and fish populations, as well as an appreciation of human-mediated effects on wildlife and fish populations. A student graduating with this degree will be familiar with the theory of resource management as well as with methods used to determine population status, habitat quality, and conservation. In Wyoming the abundance of wild animals and pristine habitats provide a unique natural laboratory for studying the responses of wildlife and fish populations to changing climates and habitats.
A student graduating with a degree in WFBM will have comprehensive knowledge of wildlife and fisheries biology and management, will have earned a degree that is compatible with the requirements for professional certification with the American Fisheries Society or the Wildlife Society, and will have a range of knowledge and skills that are valuable to potential employers.
