Wildlife and fisheries management is the science and art of maintaining populations of wild animals at levels consistent with the best interests of wild species and of the public. Management goals may be aesthetic, economic, or ecological. Success depends upon wildlife and fisheries biologists providing assistance; scholarly application of scientific information and methods to these goals; ecological perspective; and execution of programs to maintain past successes, to prevent repetition of past failures, and to prepare for future needs.
To remain in the Wildlife Health concentration, students must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA, 2.5 major GPA, and earn no less than a B grade in FWF 250 *. If a student does not meet the aforementioned criteria, the student will be removed from the Wildlife and Fisheries Science major, and the student must meet with their advisor to identify an alternative major. Courses to be counted towards the major GPA are all 300-level and above courses in WFS, FORS, and FWF.
uTrack Requirements (for students entering Fall 2013 or later)
Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who enter prior to Fall 2015.
