Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology (M.F.W.C.B.)


CSU’s Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology is one of the top programs in the U.S., and over 2,400 of our alumni are working to resolve natural-resource related issues. The Department assists individuals, communities, and agencies to solve complex environmental problems and was one of the first to emphasize the importance of incorporating public input and implementing two-way communications into decision-making regarding wildlife policy.

This is a coursework-only degree with no capstone course or project.
