The Wildlife Science graduate degree offered by the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife provides students with the opportunity to study with faculty that have diverse taxonomic and disciplinary expertise including but not limited to the ecology and conservation of birds, mammals (including marine mammals) and amphibians, behavioral ecology, landscape ecology, population ecology, endangered species, conservation psychology, habitat restoration, conservation biology, and conservation genetics.
In addition to our traditional faculty, the Oregon Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit resides with the department and Unit scientists teach graduate level courses and maintain active graduate research programs funded in part by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Biological Resources Division of the U.S. Geological Survey.
The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife aspires to preeminence among academic programs in ecology, management, and conservation biology in terrestrial, freshwater aquatic, and marine vertebrates and the habitats upon which they depend. We are dedicated to the discovery and dissemination of knowledge in conservation of biodiversity, natural resource management, and the sustainable use of natural resources.
