Students seeking certification as an Associate Wildlife Biologist via the Wildlife Society should see their faculty advisor for assistance.


Consultation with a faculty advisor is recommended prior to selecting approved electives; selections may impact pursuit of post-baccalaureate studies and/or goals.


If any of these courses is taken to meet a major or support requirement in the degree, it cannot be double-counted as an approved elective.


 If BIO 461 or BIO 462 is used to meet the Senior Project Requirement, it cannot also be counted as an Approved Elective.


 Maximum of 6 units may be applied toward Approved Electives from "by arrangement" courses: BIO 400, BIO 461, BIO 462, BIO 463, ENGR 322/SCM 302.
