The Professional Science Masters in Fisheries and Wildlife Administration (PSMFWA) is a 57-credit, non-thesis degree available online through OSU's Ecampus program or on campus at OSU's Corvallis campus.

Fisheries and wildlife resource conservation is a challenging profession involving biological, ecological, management, policy, and social systems. Although many professionals obtain entry-level positions with B. S. degrees, mid- and upper-level positions typically require additional training in biology, quantitative methods, and business and communication skills.

The PSMFWA degree is designed for early- and mid-career professionals who desire graduate-level training to advance their careers; applicants must have at least 5 years of professional experience to qualify for the program. The PSMFWA program will help natural resources agencies and non-government organizations meet their workforce planning goals and the self-improvement goals of current employees by providing a flexible, online curriculum.
