Whether it be working with endangered species, with farmers to help mitigate agricultural depredation by wildlife, or with the CDC to understand the role of wildlife populations as carriers of disease, the Wildlife Ecology and Management degree program provides a broad biological education that is specifically designed to meet the needs of students interested in careers involving wildlife ecology, management, and conservation.

During their four years at Auburn, students are exposed to field experiences through outdoor labs and work opportunities. Students in the wildlife program spend a portion of the summer between their third and fourth years at a summer practicum program where they have the opportunity to work hands-on with a number of wildlife species.
