The Environmental Studies and Wildlife Management program at Illinois College is an interdisciplinary program combining strong preparation in biology and wildlife management with environmental policy allowing students to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of environmental issues that support personal and professional development, ethical leadership, and service. It is intended to prepare students for careers in ecological conservation and/or wildlife management that do not require formal postgraduate education. Students considering pursuing a graduate degree in wildlife management or conservation biology should strongly consider double majoring in biology. All students completing a major in Environmental Studies and Wildlife Management will complete this program with 48 credits (10 core courses plus two interdisciplinary courses).
