Entomology and Wildlife Ecology for undergrads
The dramatic increase in the human population necessitates the need for wildlife and people to coexist in a much better fashion. Given this challenge, the demand for wildlife biologists has never been greater. The study of entomology and wildlife remains critical to sustaining the ecological balance of nature. Nationally, this explains why the USDA says that there are approximately two jobs for every one graduate of in our industry. We prepare our students to study a variety of wildlife through many hands-on techniques designed to manage wetlands, understand complex ecosystems, save endangered species, evaluate the effects of commercial exploitation, and much more.
This minor gives students insights into the biology, ecology, and conservation of insects and wildlife. The program is open to students in any UD major except for Wildlife Ecology and Conservation (WC) or Insect Ecology and Conservation (IEC) and requires a total of 15 credits, including the following required courses:
- ENWC201 – Wildlife Conservation and Ecology
- ENWC205 – Insects and Society
- ENWC456 – Conservation Biology
