What is Wildlife and Fisheries Resources at WVU like?
The Wildlife and Fisheries Resources program is dedicated to developing the next generation of young fisheries and wildlife professionals. This program offers two levels of advanced degrees with an MS in Wildlife and Fisheries Resources and a PhD in Forest Resources available.
At the MS or PhD level, students work closely with their faculty advisor and mentor to develop a unique research program that will prepare them for a career in this field. Students typically focus on either Wildlife or Fisheries for these advanced degrees.
Course work for these degrees varies depending upon the career goals of the student, past course history and educational needs for the intended research project. Typically all students take two semesters of Statistics (STAT 511 and 512) and an advanced GIS class.
