Biology - Area 3: Wildlife and Natural Resource Conservation BS

A Passion for Wildlife and the Outdoors

Whether you love to hunt, hike, fish, take pictures, watch birds, or engage in some other activity that connects you with nature, you possess a passion for the outdoors and an interest in the proper conservation and management of our natural resources.

The University of Central Missouri's Biology - Wildlife and Natural Resource Conservation curriculum encompasses the science and art of studying, managing, conserving, and protecting wild animal populations and the ecosystems on which living things depend; you will learn to apply ecological knowledge to aid in managing natural resources. If you have the desire to work towards the future health of our wildlife and the land it lives on, then this is the program for you.

Get Involved!

Chances are, the organization you choose to participate in will include a diverse group of people — you’ll be faced with the same situation in the working world! Learning how different people respond and react to certain situations will help you develop your skills in presenting and implementing ideas.

Learn How to Work with a Team!

Knowing how to work well with a team is an essential skill for any career. Being in a student organization teaches you how to do this by putting you in situations where you are required to take advice from others, as well as give your own. You have several opportunities to become an active member or leader of one of our biology organizations.
