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 Science degree provides students with specific knowledge and skills that will prepare them to successfully become a "traditional" wildlife biologist often working for an agency (Federal or State), a consulting firm or an NGO.  These students want to do the science-end of wildlife conservation such as collecting, analyzing and communicating data. The skills and knowledge students will acquire with this degree include the practical use of Geographic Information Systems, population modeling/management, greater understanding of ecological principles, and improved breadth of plant and animal identification. 

Many of our graduates who earn a BS in Wildlife Biology and Ecology further their studies in a graduate program.
