Overview

Separate concentrations in Fisheries and Wildlife Management are designed for those students who have an overriding interest in either field. These concentrations provide both breadth and depth in your area of interest while still allowing room for several elective courses. When you complete the required courses for either of these concentrations you will have satisfied all educational requirements for certification by either the American Fisheries Society or The Wildlife Society.

Key facts

At Lake Superior State University class sizes are small and labs are taught by faculty rather than graduate students, Our faculty are not only experts in their field of interest but are also dedicated teachers. Hands-on experience includes working with sophisticated laboratory equipment and the opportunity to work at many diverse terrestrial and aquatic field sites. Graduates of the department complete a capstone senior thesis or service-learning project which they design, implement, analyze, and present their findings on a topic of their choosing.
