Attention outdoor enthusiasts! We have a program for you.
The Wildlife Technology Program is designed to educate students in the techniques of wildlife management. Personnel trained in this field are needed to assist in the applied phases of natural resource management, wildlife biology, range management, and the care, maintenance, and propagation of animals. Graduates support professionals in wildlife biology, park managers, game refuge managers, and laboratory technicians in research.
Students now have the option of staying in DuBois to complete either a Bachelor's Degree in Letters, Arts, and Sciences or Bachelor's Degree in Earth Science - Natural Resources Option. Both degrees are excellent companions to the Wildlife Technology degree.
In addition, a large proportion of students in the program go on to receive four-year degrees in Wildlife and Fisheries Science, Forestry, Ecology and Environmental Studies at universities throughout the country. Located in beautiful DuBois, Pennsylvania, the campus' location allows for many outdoor recreational opportunities as well.
In 2003, the Wildlife Technology Program was nationally reaccredited by the North American Wildlife Technology Association! The program originally received accreditation in 1984.
