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.

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.
