Wildlife Option

THE WILDLIFE OPTION: This option is designed to provide interested students with formal training in animal, poultry, and veterinary science and forestry/wildlife ecology. The first three years of the degree requirements for this option are completed at Tuskegee University and the final year at a selected cooperating university. Career opportunities through this program include, but are not limited to areas associated with animal, poultry, and veterinary sciences, forestry, wildlife, biology, ecology, and natural resources. Opportunities for advanced graduate studies may exist in animal, poultry, or veterinary sciences, forestry, wildlife, biology, ecology, or natural resources.
