To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society. -Theodore Roosevelt

Clemson University


Clemson developed a special online M.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology degree program to educate and train natural resources professionals who are currently in the field, as well as non-traditional students who are in natural resources-related positions or working in the policy arena. Currently there are 75 students enrolled in the program from across the country.

Clemson University Boone and Crockett Program

In partnership with the Boone and Crockett Club, Clemson University is in the process of establishing a Distinguished Professorship in Wildlife Conservation. This newly endowed program will focus on coordinating outreach, teaching, and applied research efforts to enhance and promote game species management and wildlife conservation on private lands. This not only meets a regional need (90 percent of land and wildlife habitat in the Southeast is privately owned), but addresses a growing priority for advancing big game management globally.

Clemson has a long history of exceptional teaching, research, and outreach programs in applied wildlife management and conservation. Students seek out our wildlife program because of our reputation for getting students hands-on experience outdoors, and providing the critical thinking and problem-solving skill sets needed to address current game management problems. In the southeastern US, our faculty are conducting cutting edge wildlife research on key issues related to white-tailed deer management, particularly as it relates to their interaction with coyotes and invasive wild pigs. In the western United States, Clemson researchers are attempting to use science to help address controversial issues surrounding the restoration of bison to private and federal rangelands where domestic cattle currently graze. Further, our research impact spans globally, with active major wildlife research focal areas in South Africa, India, and the western United States.
