Wildlife, Fisheries, & Aquaculture Science Concentration

Students who intend to pursue one or more advanced degrees should select this concentration, as it designed for preparation for graduate school. Employment with this bachelor of science program is possible, but competition for jobs is intense and salaries can be low. Students who complete this concentration are eligible for certification by The Wildlife Society but are not qualified to become Registered Foresters in Mississippi. This degree is intended for serious, academically strong students who can maintain an A-B grade record (GPA > 3.00), which is the minimum required for admittance into graduate degree programs.
