We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2022, the deadline for applications is October 31st.
The Master of Wildlife and Fisheries Resources degree (non-thesis) has a new online delivery option for students with experience in natural resources who wish to enhance their professional degree skills. Students potentially include Federal and State Agency wildlife and fisheries employees, educators who wish to increase their knowledge about wildlife and fisheries biology, private industry professionals, and individuals with a variety of other natural resource backgrounds. The program is in a fully online format, allowing lectures to be available 24/7. Students who enroll in 2 courses a semester can complete the degree in as little as 2 years (3.5 years if 1 course is taken per semester). New enrollees are accepted in Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters as space permits.
This program is available completely through online instruction with courses offered each semester: January-April, May-August, and August-December. It requires 30 credit hours of course work to graduate. To see a list of current and future semester course offerings, click here: https://www.clemson.edu/online/programs/mwfr.html
For students with a non-science background we recommend taking Bio I and II, some sort of chemistry, some sort of stats, and at least two of the following Forest, Wildlife, Wetland, Vertebrate, Fish Biology OR Ecology or a dendrology or botany course. This is what a well-prepared student would have taken already. These courses should be offered at a local community college or online.
