The Bachelor of Science degree in Fisheries & Wildlife Science offers flexibility. The undergraduate curriculum is composed of a core and a Specialization which the student designs according to individual interests and goals. Each student designs their own Specialization to complement the basic science and social science core. With the guidance of a faculty advisor, diverse advanced offerings are selected by the student. Required internships and a senior "group project" also can be developed to support individual educational goals. Some sample Specializations might include:
Large Mammal Ecology
Fisheries Management
Stream Ecology
Endangered Species Conservation
Fish & Wildlife Law Enforcement
Habitat Restoration
Avian Ecology
Marine Biology
Aquaculture
Environmental Education
........many others are possible.

Transfer Students
Students planning to transfer to the department should focus on courses in introductory biology, general chemistry, mathematics, and the baccalaureate core requirements during their freshman and sophomore years. Transfer students should have regular contact with the head advisor to make sure they are taking the right courses for transferring into the program (contact information is above).

Science courses for the Fisheries and Wildlife Major require a number of prerequisites. Math is especially important. Prior to enrolling in the PCC courses listed above, make sure you have met the requirements and recommendations listed in the class schedule. It's important to meet with an advisor or counselor to develop an academic plan that meets your needs.

 

Additional Requirements

For PCC courses that transfer to OSU, refer to Transfer Equivalencies above. If you plan to get an AAOT degree, all OSU Baccalaureate Core Requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements. Be sure to take all other required courses.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
