Wildlife biology is a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of wild animals and their habitats. Wildlife biologists build a knowledge base in ecology, population biology, wildlife biology, and critical thinking; with these skills, biologists can be researchers, field scientists and advocates for the management of wildlife and fish populations and their habitat, communities and ecosystems.
TCC offers courses that cover the first two years of a typical four-year college biology program (college-level courses) as well as courses to develop skills needed for college-level courses.
We suggest the following schedule of classes for students who wish to major in wildlife biology and earn the Associate of Science Degree-Biology Specialization.
- Some students may need to take additional prerequisite courses.
- 5 credits of microeconomics (ECON& 201) is required for entry to the WSU Wildlife Biology program. The other humanities and social science courses must be chosen from the Humanities and Social Science courses on the Approved Distribution Course List.
- At least five courses must be chosen from the list of approved multicultural courses on the Approved Distribution Course List.
- PHYS& 114 and 115, or PHYS& 221 and 222 are strongly recommended as elective courses.
- No more than three PE Activity credits may apply to this degree.
- No more than five credits of electives may be from courses that are not listed under the Communication, Quantitative/Symbolic Reasoning, Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, or General Distribution Courses sections of the Approved Distribution Course List.
