Class Location: 
Corvallis Campus
Fisheries and Wildlife

The Professional Science Master’s degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Administration (PSMFWA) provides advanced training for early- and mid-career professionals employed by natural resources agencies, non-government organizations, and other entities with a need for expertise in fisheries and wildlife science. Applicants must have at least 5 years of experience working in a natural resource field. The PSMFWA degree will help employers meet workforce planning goals and contribute to self-improvement goals of current employees.

It is taught primarily as a distance, online curriculum via Ecampus, although some students may choose to work toward the PSMFWA degree while in residence at OSU or at the Hatfield Marine Science Center.

The PSMFWA degree is offered as a non-thesis program only. Students have an advisor and graduate committee to review their program of study, provide career and internship advice, and evaluate a final report based on the internship experience.
