The Conservation Law Enforcement degree program allows students to pursue a diverse course of study by taking general courses in science and math, combined with specific courses in environmental resources and criminal justice. Students will learn about the criminal justice system in the U.S., including arrest, trial, incarceration and rehabilitation/release. They will gain knowledge about the duties and functions around various law enforcement agencies.  In addition, students will understand the importance of natural resource management, and apply field-based knowledge and skills to work in a natural environment, including identifying plant, fish, mammal and bird species, and identifying and operating equipment commonly used in natural resource fields.  In addition to course and field work, students will also gain practical, hands-on experience with natural resource and criminal justice professionals, through internships and projects.
 
Upon completion of this program, students will be prepared for employment as conservation officers, game wardens, forest rangers or park rangers.
