Wildlife and Rangeland Resources Management Major [ALES]


The Wildlife and Rangeland Resources Management major introduces the theory and practice of sustainably managing soil-plant-animal relationships on both private and public lands. Students will gain an understanding of important multiple use issues, including the integration of cattle grazing and wildlife management with intensive agriculture, forestry, recreational activities and other forms of natural resource use. This major examines the means to increase both the productivity and sustainable use of wild plants and animals within an ecosystem management framework.

Graduates are prepared for careers with government agencies, agricultural conservation associations, agri-businesses or other private firms dealing with management of wildlife and rangeland resources.
