Most graduates with an M.S. in Wildlife accept initial jobs as biologists or managers with government agencies that oversee the stewardship of wildlife resources. Our degree program, like most M.S. degrees in Natural Resources, has students continue knowledge-based learning in graduate classes, but much of a student’s effort is focused on learning the scientific method and problem solving by completing research on a topic they select with input from their graduate advisor. Recent students have worked on the breeding biology of northern pintails, white-tailed deer nutrition, describing the unique ecology of tropical forests in Peru, evaluating reintroduction methods for endangered black bears, assessing restoration of coastal marsh and dozens of other exciting projects.
