Fisheries and Wildlife - Online Minor

Earn a fisheries and wildlife minor online in your natural habitat

The OSU Department of Fisheries and Wildlife along with Ecampus invite you to discover the flexibility and ease of completing a fisheries and wildlife sciences minor online as part of your undergraduate degree program.  

Conserving species and ecosystems

The fisheries and wildlife minor offers a broad foundation in biodiversity conservation, ecosystem function, and human influences on natural resources, as well as fish and wildlife biology. Our goal is to provide students in other majors with the knowledge needed to make wise decisions on issues of conservation, sustainable use, and ecosystem restoration.

By earning your minor in fisheries and wildlife online you will have the flexibility to choose from a spectrum of courses on species conservation and management, habitats and ecosystems, population dynamics, and human dimensions in natural resources. These choices make a fisheries and wildlife science minor a valuable supplement to the Ecampus online degrees in environmental sciences, natural resources, general agriculture, general horticulture, liberal studies, and political science.
