Arkansas Wildlife Programs

November 10, 2010 Leave a comment

The last months of the year are the times when high school students and undergraduate seniors are considering either pursuing higher education or entering the work force for some time. The decision of where you will go to school is difficult (unless you’re following family tradition) and can make a difference in who you meet plus your experiences for the next few years of your life. Furthermore, deciding what you will major in can be another obstacle. If you’re considering an environmental major the schools available to you changes greatly compared to if you are interested in majoring in business.

If you’re still in the throws of determining which school is right for you (or which have environmental majors) then I’ve recorded here all the schools in Arkansas which have majors in wildlife, fisheries, forestry, and environmental sciences. Finding information shouldn’t be difficult especially if you’re flexible and don’t mind being from Maine and attending school in California. Other states which have been completed are Alabama and Alaska that you may be interested in reviewing. The abbreviation list for understanding which degrees are available as either an undergraduate or graduate student has also been updated.

Initial credit for this information is given to the Wildlife Society. I’ve edited it to also reflect schools which have clubs for Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences. I plan to revisit these schools at a later time to share those which also have the professional organizations of the Society of American Forester’s and the American Fisheries Society. Being involved while your in school can assist you in developing skills (not just leadership skills) that you will utilize when you graduate from college.

So if you’re thinking about pursuing a major in wildlife, fisheries, forestry, environmental science or related sciences stay tuned for the next states who have environmentally based majors.

Alaska Universities and Colleges with Wildlife Programs

October 18, 2010 2 comments

Hey there. I’ve just completed all of the Alaska Universities and Colleges which have environmentally based programs. There aren’t many schools but the programs undoubtedly are among the best in the nation especially for marine based studies. It is that time of year again where students should be searching for and applying to colleges. So if you’re interested in careers in the outdoors keep following along with this blog as I post each state up. Hopefully I can get to more states quickly however the process is time consuming. This is especially so because I want to do my best to make sure that I’ve included every updated major and contact information.

I’ve also created the abbreviation list for the degree programs. I’ll be sure to update it as I meander through the states and record their degree information.  So if you’re interested in forestry, natural resources, wildlife, fisheries or any of the other related sciences don’t hesitate to check out the states here,  and for Alabama. I actually have Arizona and Arkansas as well but it was completed back in April or so. I plan to update it but if you don’t want to wait till then check it out here as well.

So if you’re a high school student and you’re wondering “What should I major in?” or “What are some outdoor majors?” take a peek. You’ll learn something.
