Description

The undergraduate wildlife management certificate program is for students at ASU interested in biology, conservation, sustainability and management of natural resources. The certificate provides students with professional credentials to qualify for many positions offered by state (e.g., Arizona Game and Fish Department) and federal agencies (e.g., U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Bureau of Land Management). The certificate will provide students with application-based and hands-on experience in the field and allow them to engage with wildlife professionals. The certificate may give a hiring edge to those in the growing field of environmental careers in agencies and nongovernment organizations.

What are Accelerated Degrees?
The accelerated bachelor's and master's degrees are designed by the academic programs to provide selected high-achieving undergraduate students with the opportunity to combine advanced undergraduate course work with graduate course work to accelerate graduate degree completion. These programs allow accelerated students to obtain both a bachelor's and master's degree within five years. Accelerated programs are not offered at Lake Havasu.
What are Concurrent Programs?
Students pursuing concurrent degrees earn two distinct degrees and receive two diplomas. ASU offers students two ways to earn concurrent degrees: by choosing a predetermined combination or creating their own combination. Predetermined combinations have a single admissions application and one easy to follow major map. To add a concurrent degree to your existing degree, work with your academic advisor. Either way, concurrent degrees allow students to pursue their own personal or professional interests.
What are Fast Track Programs?
Fast track your future by completing your degree in a condensed time frame while participating in the same high quality educational experience as the four-year option. Choose either a 2.5 or a 3 year option to best meet your needs. Discuss the best option for you with your academic advisor after your acceptance into your program.
What are Joint Programs?
Joint programs, or jointly conferred degrees, are offered by more than one college and provide opportunities for students to take advantage of the academic strengths of two academic units. Upon graduation, students are awarded one degree and one diploma conferred by two colleges.

What constitutes a New Program?
ASU adds new programs to Degree Search frequently. Come back often and look for the “New Programs” option.
What are Online Programs?
ASU Online offers programs in an entirely online format with multiple enrollment sessions throughout the year. See http://asuonline.asu.edu/ for more information.
What is the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)?
