    Biology Emphasis

    This transfer degree prepares students to further their education in a Wildlife and Fisheries Biology major. This degree is designed for potential transfer to Montana State University, the University of Montana, the University of Wyoming, the University of Idaho, or North Dakota State University. Graduates from a four-year program or who hold an advanced degree may find positions in resource management and conservation biology. A student graduating in this field with a four-year degree may become a wildlife disease specialist; law enforcement agent for the fish and game department; wildlife refuge manager; waterfowl biologist; fisheries biologist; or naturalist in a national, state or municipal park; hatchery manager; or environmental consultant for the energy industry. Most fish and wildlife biologists find employment with federal or state agencies. Competition for these jobs is intense, and most professional-level positions require an advanced degree. Other career opportunities exist with private resource groups and private industry such as environmental consulting firms, and oil, coal, mineral, or chemical companies.
