Pre-Forestry (Wildlife Management)


Mai Phillips, Admin. Prog. Spec., Associate Coordinator (414-229-4214, phillipm@uwm.edu

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee does not offer a degree in forestry or wildlife management. However, the subjects listed below correspond closely to the requirements of the first two years of forestry and wildlife management curricula in institutions offering such degree programs.

Students are advised to confer with the pre-forestry advisor no later than the second semester of the freshman year about the specific requirements of the natural resources institution to which they plan to transfer. This should enable them to plan a course of study for the sophomore year at UWM that will satisfy these specific requirements.

Since many schools require attendance at a camp during the summer following the sophomore year, students are advised to consult at an early date with the institution to which they plan to transfer.

Completion of Chem 100 and Math 105 (or appropriate placement scores) is the prerequisite for beginning the chemistry courses required for the pre-forestry program.
