University Majors

University of California, Davis
Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology B.S.

Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology (WFCB) is an ecologically oriented major that addresses the interactions of humans with wildlife and fish in both natural and disturbed environments. Students are trained in the basic sciences, mathematics, and the taxonomy, biology, and conservation of wildlife and fish in California and in many other parts of the world. The emphasis on basic sciences provides our students with the intellectual flexibility to handle the diverse and challenging problems faced by biologists working with wildlife and fisheries or the broader realm of conservation and management of species and their habitats. In the major, students specialize in one of five areas of special interest. These are conservation biology, fisheries biology, wildlife biology, wildlife health (e.g., preparation for veterinary studies), or an individualized study. Although all specializations have a common core of basic and advanced biology courses, each provides preparation unique to that area of emphasis. Students learn methods to conduct field or laboratory studies, analyze data, and prepare written and verbal reports. Practical experience in conducting an independent research project in wildlife or fish biology is available through a variety of required or optional courses. The WFCB department has a 10 member faculty (with several additional adjunct faculty and researchers) active in teaching and research, with an exceptionally broad spectrum of interests, training, and experience.
