B.S. in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Sciences – Online

Where conservation meets passion

Oregon State University's online fisheries, wildlife, and conservation sciences degree is an applied, science-based program that focuses on maintaining balance for species and habitats in the wild. As a student in the program, you'll have the unique opportunity to choose a specialization area to develop your interests and knowledge to make vital decisions about fish, wildlife and the delicate environments they live in.

This degree is offered by OSU's Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Sciences, which was the first and is still the only department in the nation to offer a bachelor's degree in combined fisheries, wildlife, and conservation sciences entirely online. The courses are delivered online by Oregon State Ecampus.
