The Master of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Science was established in the fall of 2000 to build on Arkansas Tech University’s longstanding tradition of educating fisheries and wildlife professionals.

A trademark of the program is our field-oriented approach that provides opportunities for hands-on learning through field laboratories, research projects, and working  relationships with government agencies and private industry.

With both a thesis and non-thesis track, students prepare for fisheries and wildlife careers, or gain invaluable preparation for doctoral level education.

Thesis option

Allows students to develop and conduct an independent research project under the direction of a faculty member while completing a 30 credit curriculum.

Non-thesis option

Provides an innovative approach for those students interested in an advanced degree that does not emphasize research but focuses on conservation management, oral and written communication, and leadership skills through a 36 credit curriculum.
