The Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology – Wildlife Biology major at Colorado State University is intended for students interested in understanding wildlife and the habitats in which they live.
We offer three concentrations: Conservation Biology, Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, and Wildlife Biology.
The curriculum has a strong foundation in the biological, physical, and social sciences with the focus on solving current and future issues related to conservation and sustainability of wild animals and their habitats.
Our program prepares students for professional careers involving fish, wildlife, and conservation that include federal and state agencies, nongovernmental organizations, the private sector, academic institutions, and graduate school.
Examples of career opportunities include, but are not limited to:

Within these areas, a variety of specializations are possible including fish, wildlife, and conservation education and interpretation; endangered species; habitat enhancement and restoration; administration; research; law enforcement, fish and wildlife population assessment, statistical analyst, and human-wildlife conflicts.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
