NEW Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology BS Curriculum

January 17, 2023

Greetings FWCB majors -

We have implemented some important changes in the FWCB curriculum that will provide greater flexibility when selecting courses required to obtain your degree.

As of Spring 2023, the FWCB curriculum will no longer have separate Wildlife, Fisheries, and Conservation tracks. New students (enrolling this spring or in future years) will pursue a new trackless curriculum to complete their degree.

All other students (starting before Spring 2023) will have the option to either stick with old course requirements (with an associated track) or switch to the new trackless curriculum. To see whether changing to the new trackless curriculum is right for you, you can go to APAS and compare what courses you would need to take to complete your degree under the new curriculum (link to both curricula here). We encourage you to discuss these options with your academic advisor (Megan Schmidt or Tracene Marshall) Importantly, if you decide to switch to the trackless major, you will not be able to switch back to the old curriculum at a later point in time.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your advisors and faculty mentors if you have questions regarding these changes to the FWCB curriculum and how they might affect you.

Honors students will have someone else assigned to them.
