The graduate program in Wildlife Ecology and Management is designed to provide a strong background in the biological, ecological, and managerial aspects of the wildlife profession. The wildlife faculty are active in a variety of graduate teaching and research areas, including population dynamics, community ecology, physiology and nutrition, behavioral ecology, wildlife diseases and population health, habitat management, nongame and endangered species, urban wildlife management, wildlife damage management, conservation biology, and biometrics. Federal cooperative research and service units in the Warnell School bring additional adjunct faculty to the graduate wildlife program from the U.S. Department of Interior and U.S. Department of Agriculture. Several wildlife faculty have collaborative teaching and research relationships with other academic units on campus, such as the Odum School of Ecology, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study at the College of Veterinary Medicine. These associations provide opportunities for interdisciplinary research projects. Graduates from this program obtain employment in public agencies, consulting firms, conservation organizations, forest industry, and in academia.
