If you are pursuing a wildlife conservation and management degree, you must meet the below requirements to be eligible for graduation. Also, you must complete the general education program, fulfill the general baccalaureate degree requirements and complete at least 125 hours of course work.

The wildlife conservation and management program is comprehensive, so it does not require the completion of a minor.

This program is offered through a cooperative partnership between the College of Agriculture and the department of biology. Therefore, you will take courses in both agriculture and biology. With an agriculture emphasis, you will take additional courses in business, horticulture and agronomy. You can tailor your course work to qualify for placement on fisheries biology, wildlife biology and social science registries.
