Wildlife and Conservation Biology B.S.
Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s
The accelerated B.S. to M.E.S.M. Program (ABM) offers qualified students the opportunity to complete both the B.S. in Wildlife and Conservation Biology and the Masters of Environmental Science and Management (M.E.S.M.), non-thesis professional degree, in five years.
Students enrolled in the Wildlife and Conservation Biology major study a combination of the natural sciences and principles of managing wildlife populations and their habitats. This major is one of very few in the United States that fulfills the educational requirements for certification as an Associate Wildlife Biologist by The Wildlife Society, the international organization for professionals in the wildlife field. It also provides an excellent foundation for graduate school. The URI Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society is heavily involved with career-related activities.
