    The course list for the undergraduate program at the University of Florida includes classes such as “Introduction to Fisher Science,” “Dendrology/Forest Plants,” “Integrated Natural Resource Management,” and “Wildlife Issues in a Changing World.”  Many of the classes concern interdisciplinary issues such as biodioversity, natural history, genetics, and land management practices.  For more specific information, check the citation below.

    I would imagine that Molecular biology and Biochemistry would be a few other classes you might run into as well. But judging by the wide variety of classes that fall under this major I would imagine that you would have a hard time coming up with something that couldn’t be vital in somke respect! 🙂

    While the exact classes will depend on the college you attend, at WSU, the core classes for a wildlife ecology student are intro to wildlife ecology (shocking!), wildlife nutrition, advanced wildlife management, and population ecology and conservation. Then you’d get into electives like biology and management of fishes, ornithology, etc. You’d also take more generalized classes like introduction to natural resources management, measurements and computers in resource management, introduction to wildlife management, and natural resource ecology amongst other classes.

    A sampling of four different schools that offer the major reveals that the core curriculum for the Wildlife Ecology major typically consists of:

    • One year of Chemistry with lab
    • Math (calculus preferred) and Statistics
    • General Biology with lab
    • Ecology
    • Outside the classroom experience

    A program may also require students to take additional classes in the Biology Department like anatomy, physiology, evolution and genetics, as well as courses in public communications and environmental studies.

    The wildlife ecology major at the University of California, Davis requires: chemistry, biology, calculus, statistics, general ecology, conservation biology, anatomy, identification, environmental policy or economics, specialization courses in avian sciences, marine animals, etc… the coursework is shaped by your interests. Most of these courses will involve lab or fieldwork.
