Notes

Discuss your plan with your adviser. Progress through the Fisheries & Wildlife major consists of completing the F&W Core and at least one career-related Option. Many decisions for courses during Years 3 & 4 depend on the Option you have selected. Summer courses at Cedar Point Biological Station may be used to create flexibility in your program or hasten your graduation date.

PLEASE NOTE

This document represents a sample 4-year plan for degree completion with this major. Actual course selection and sequence may vary and should be discussed individually with your college or department academic adviser. Advisers also can help you plan other experiences to enrich your undergraduate education such as internships, education abroad, undergraduate research, learning communities, and service learning and community-based learning.
