Wildlife, Fish & Conservation Biology
College or University: University of California, Davis
Type of degree: B.S.
Brief overview of program: The Program. Because of the diversity of problems in the field, the major emphasizes broad training in biological and physical sciences, with specialization in one of eight areas. The major is primarily for students interested in eventually becoming professionals in wildlife, fish, and conservation biology, but its breadth of course requirements, when combined with suitable electives, also make it suitable as a preparatory major for such areas as veterinary medicine and secondary school teaching. Certification by professional societies such as The Wildlife Society, American Fisheries Society, or the Ecological Society of America or preparation for specialized resource-related graduate studies may also be achieved by careful planning of electives with a faculty adviser.
