Captive Wild Animal Management Minor

Do you have a passion for wild animals? Do you wonder how to turn that enthusiasm into a career? Then consider earning a minor in captive wild animal management.

Captive Wild Animal Management

For animal sciences or fisheries and wildlife sciences majors, the minor will require an additional 18-20 hours of coursework. For non-animal sciences or fisheries and wildlife sciences majors, the minor may require a number of other prerequisite courses in addition to the required curriculum.

A combination of coursework from the two major degrees will teach conservation, management and scientific principles to provide the background for a career in the care and management of wild animals.

The coursework for the minor has been designed to further emphasize and apply these principles to wild animals, and to provide students with opportunities to gain advanced experience in captive wild animal management.
