Stevens Point Wildlife Program

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) Wildlife Ecology program has over 350 undergraduate wildlife majors and nine full-time wildlife faculty members. The Wildlife Ecology program emphasizes undergraduate teaching and incorporates research in areas such as conservation biology, avian ecology, predator ecology, wetland ecology, wildlife health, population dynamics, wildlife damage management and habitat management. Practical, hands-on experiences inside and outside the classroom is a cornerstone of the program. Undergraduate courses focus on the problem-solving and scientific skills needed to understand the ecological interactions affecting wildlife management, including game, non-game, endangered and invasive species. Graduates of the Wildlife Ecology and Management program are academically qualified to become Certified Wildlife Biologists, as stipulated by The Wildlife Society (TWS). UWSP’s Wildlife Society Student Chapter is among the best in the nation. In 2016, they were awarded the National Student TWS Chapter of the Year and the North Central Section Student Chapter of the Year.
