Wildlife Biology and Ecology

More than any point in recorded history, Earth is in a human-caused biodiversity crisis that requires purposeful action. The loss of species and habitat is well documented and the need to prepare creative and redemptive agents who are skillfully trained to serve in the disciplines of biodiversity conservation, wildlife management, and ecological specialties is great.

NNU's Wildlife Biology and Ecology Bachelor of Arts degree provides students with specific knowledge and skills that will prepare them for careers as biological educator, biological illustrator, or conservation policy adviser or to work in a zoo, botanical garden or conservation organization. The skills and knowledge students will acquire include the practical use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), population modeling/management, greater understanding of ecological principles, and improved breadth of plant and animal identification--among other things.  Because of the focus on aspects beyond the science, this degree requires a minor that will provide the student with contextual expertise.
