The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife offers graduate work leading to the Master of Agriculture, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees (and participation in the MAg and MAIS degree programs) with majors in wildlife science.

The wildlife graduate program in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife includes wildlife research concerning interaction of wildlife with land uses, migratory waterfowl, upland game birds, forest bird communities, endangered species, population dynamics, and conservation biology.

The Oregon Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit has active research programs funded in part by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and U.S. Geological Survey. The Agricultural Experiment Station, the Sea Grant program, Forest Science Laboratory and other organizations fund major research projects. The department maintains extensive collections of vertebrate species, which are curated by Doctors Sidlauskas (fish), Epps (mammals), and Dugger (birds).
