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.

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. 

The U.S. Dept. of Labor projects significant growth in renewable energy and environmental jobs through 2018.

Earn a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Science in the "3+1" program at Penn State

Wildlife Technology students can easily transfer into the Bachelor of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries Science program after they graduate and can even spend their junior year at the DuBois campus. Students take courses such as Biology, Chemistry, Math and Physics in their junior year at DuBois and then transition to University Park for their senior year to finish their coursework. Students who follow this path are able to graduate with both an Associate in Science in Wildlife Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries Science in four years.
