Adrianna’s Answer

If you know what areas you want to go into for those fields it will help you narrow it down a lot. UC Davis is highly regarded as a very good school, and it is. I know it mostly as being a school for veterinary science, not so much wildlife. When looking at schools for wildlife, you want one that offers a lot of hands on experience, that is what will help you in that field.

I highly recommend Humboldt State University, not only because that is where I went to school, but because their Wildlife program is growing quickly and offers some amazing opportunities with lots of hands on experience. The school is also one of the least expensive that I know of (though I am not sure how much for out of state) with a tuition of 7k for a year (give or take). Other schools I know reside in Washington, and Canada. I did not experience the programs there but I would assume that since they have such outdoorsy life styles they would also be more hands on. One of the best ways is to type in the degree you want in google and look into the schools it shows you. You can also call recruiters or other administers and they would love to answer your questions.

I would recommend University of Tennessee. They have a great wildlife and fisheries management course and offer a lot of hands on application. They have a lot of former alumni that have gone on to be head's of Department of Natural Resources and other conversation positions.

Andrew’s Answer

I know UC Davis has a well respected program in the field. I believe Oregon State and University of Washington are also worth looking into. This is not a comprehensive list but it is a start to help get you on track. I would also take into account location, degrees offered, cost, as other factors to help point you in the right direction.
