Can I get a minor in Wildlife Science?

Interdisciplinary Minor in Wildlife Science

The only minor available in Wildlife Science is an interdisciplinary minor. The reason this minor requires specific courses rather than any combination of 18 semester credit hours is because someone with an expertise in Wildlife Science is expected to have specific knowledge that cannot be gained with any random assortment of courses.

The specific courses required for this minor are a total of 18 semester credit hours (SCH) from the following:

BIOL 3415 – Plant Taxonomy (4 SCH)

BIOL 4401 – Ecology (4 SCH) or RNRM 315 – Range Ecology (3 SCH)

WLDM 2322 – Wildlife Conservation and Management (3 SCH)

WLDM 3310 – Techniques in Wildlife Management (3 SCH)

BIOL 4430 – Ornithology, BIOL 4451 – Mammalogy, or any WLDM courses. (4-5 SCH)

***Note that the BIOL courses listed require two semesters of Biology (typically BIOL 120 and 121) as prerequisites.

Please contact a Wildlife Management faculty member if you have any questions.
