Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences

College of Agriculture

Prepare for a career in fisheries research and management, lake and stream management, aquaculture, and interdisciplinary studies of environmental problems. Studies emphasize understanding ecosystems function, natural and human disturbance, and ecosystem resilience. You are preparing for work in public organizations (state/federal fish and wildlife), not-for-profit organizations (Nature Conservancy), private consulting firms, or for graduate studies (MS, PhD, DVM). This degree meets the educational requirements for the American Fisheries Society’s Professional Certification.
