About the courseThe Wetland Science Area of Concentration was designed for students who wish to specialize in wetlands, which are valued as wildlife and fish habitat, for maintaining water quality, and for economic benefits. Career Possibilities: aquaculture specialist, conservation biologist, environmental lawyer (with additional education), wildlife or fisheries biologist or ecologist, wildlife or fisheries veterinarian (with additional education), wildlife law enforcement officer, forester, wetland scientist. The School of Renewable Natural Resources offers a B.S in Natural Resource Ecology and Management. The curriculum is diverse with opportunities to study wetlands, wildlife, conservation biology, fisheries, aquaculture, forestry, habitat management, and law enforcement. Additionally, students in this program may prepare for careers as wildlife-oriented veterinarians. This program differs from traditional biology programs by integrating a hands-on approach to learning and introducing resource policy, regulations, and human aspects of resource research and management. Students in this program can expect field experiences in forests, wetlands, and in the water. Importantly, unlike similar programs, the focus will be on habitats, animal populations and communities, people management, and less on individual animals in this program.
