WHAT TO EXPECT

With an academic background in criminology, law, and ethics, and specialized training in law enforcement, a Conservation Law Enforcement degree prepares you for jobs including:

  • Conservation Wardens
  • Police Officers
  • Park Rangers
  • Environmental Officers

You will graduate with a law enforcement certification through a fifteen-credit police recruit school training program incorporated into your four-year program.

GET INVOLVED ON CAMPUS

Discover your passions, build your resume, and make friends along the way! Whether it is joining a student organization, working at one of our centers, or participating in research at one of our three field stations, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved.

GAIN EXPERIENCE OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM

You will gain additional hands-on experiences in all areas of natural resource management during a required summer field experience generally taken between your sophomore and junior years. Choose between an intensive, six-week, hands-on summer field experience at our Treehaven residential facility or our European Environmental Seminar, where students learn how European natural resource management compares to the United States.

Summer internships and jobs are another great way to build your resume. We make them easy to find through our partnership with Handshake.
