Environmental Science Degrees and Fish and Wildlife Management Programs

The mission of the online environmental science degree program is to prepare students with the knowledge to pursue endeavors in fish and wildlife management. Designed for those who share a passion for environmental stewardship, the online degree addresses predominant global issues such as pollution, hazardous materials, natural resources, and wildlife management. Using evidence-based research and real-world practices, the program ultimately provides students with the education needed to tackle many complex issues in environmental policy and management.

The Fish and Wildlife Management Concentration was also created for individuals pursuing specific careers ranging from fishery and wildlife biologist, to park ranger and environmental scientist. Starting with the very first course, students are engaged in a well-rounded curriculum that covers the spectrum of environmental science, policy, analysis, and key fishery and wildlife management issues.

The School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math faculty is comprised of scholar-practitioners, many who are field experts and hold leadership positions at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, the Nature Conservancy, and other key environmental organizations. Faculty members are actively involved with the changing laws, policies, scientific advancements, and the social and political influences that continually shape the global economy. This ensures that students are learning the most relevant information available today.
