We designed this undergraduate certificate to provide students with knowledge and skills that will make them competitive for jobs with government agencies and other organizations involved in wildlife management. The certificate will be especially useful for students pursuing undergraduate degrees in biology, environmental science, or forestry. Wildlife management is grounded in an understanding of the biology of wild animals and ecosystem ecology.
