Conservation Law Enforcement

Students who wish to seek immediate employment following receipt of a B.S. degree and to obtain positions related to natural resource law enforcement positions (such as Conservation Officers, Park Rangers, Wildlife Inspectors) should select this concentration. Students who complete this are eligible for certification by The Wildlife Society but are not qualified to become Registered Foresters in Mississippi. Continuation on to graduate school in human dimensions, conservation law enforcement, or wildlife biology is possible.
