Prospective Students

Prospective students face many challenging questions. What discipline should be your major? Should you consider becoming a wildlife biologist? To what schools should you apply? Should you consider Humboldt? If you love the outdoors, wish to study animals, and want to contribute to conservation and management, then you should definitely consider HSU wildlife! See our undergraduate and graduate programs for details about attending HSU for a B.S. or M.S. degree. The links below can help you understand what wildlife biologists do, where they are employed, and why HSU wildlife provides an excellent education.

WiGSS was created in the fall of 1999 to provide a forum for the discussion of ideas and issues pertinent to the wildlife graduate program at Humboldt, and to serve as a resource for academic and local communities. We consider all classified graduate students of Humboldt's Wildlife Department to be members of WiGSS. However, all students in the department are open to attend and participate in our functions.
