|Description of Work Unit||
The Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology is one of five academic departments in the Warner College of Natural Resources. The other departments are Geosciences, Ecosystem Science and Sustainability, Forest and Rangeland Stewardship, and Human Dimensions of Natural Resources. General information about the Warner College of Natural Resources and departments can be accessed at www.warnercnr.colostate.edu .
The Department offers an undergraduate major in Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology (FWCB) major intended for students interested in understanding wildlife and the habitats in which they live. The major offers three concentrations: Conservation Biology, Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, and Wildlife Biology. The curriculum has a strong foundation in the biological, physical, and social sciences with the focus on solving current and future issues related to conservation and sustainability of wild animals and their habitats. The faculty offers a wide range of expertise with a keen interest in innovative teaching and research methods.
Our program prepares students for professional careers involving fish, wildlife, and conservation that include federal and state agencies, nongovernmental organizations, the private sector, academic institutions, and graduate school. Numerous opportunities exist for students to gain experience through research and internships, including professional and career mentoring and involvement with professional societies to further their studies, practical experience, and career potential.
In addition, we offer M.S., Ph.D. degrees in F.W.C.B.; an online, coursework-only, non-thesis, professional Masters in F.W.C.B.; and a graduate certificate program in Wildlife Conservation Actions. Faculty members may also direct graduate students in the interdisciplinary Graduate Degree Program in Ecology (https://ecology.colostate.edu/ ). We currently have approximately 600 undergraduates and 120 graduate students enrolled in the Department. Over 2,400 alumni are working to resolve natural-resource related issues. We contribute to the economic and ecological health of our state by assisting many individuals, communities, and agencies to solve complex environmental problems.
We are committed to expand the frontiers of knowledge through our broad-based research expertise in the conservation and management of fish and wildlife. We teach students to think critically about environmental issues and become ecologically literate, providing the training to be successful in careers in academia, governmental agencies, the private sector, and non-government organizations. Our outreach and engagement efforts assist individuals, communities, and organizations to solve complex environmental problems and to be effective stewards of the planet’s fish and wildlife and the systems in which they live. We are committed to recruiting, supporting, and training faculty, students, and staff from groups traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized in the fields of fish, wildlife, and conservation biology to develop innovative solutions to complex environmental problems and to advance and promote environmental justice.
The Warner College of Natural Resources is also home to several interdisciplinary centers and programs, including the Colorado Forest Restoration Institute, the Center for Collaborative Conservation, the Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands, and the Colorado Natural Heritage Program. In addition, the Colorado State Forest Service is embedded within the Warner College of Natural Resources, which provides a unique opportunity for collaboration and student internships.
