Wildlife Biology and Management Minor A minor is a structured group of courses that leads to considerable knowledge and understanding of a subject, although with less depth than a major. Some employers consider minors desirable, and the corresponding major requirements at the University may stipulate a minor. Some students choose to complement their major program with a minor in a related field or even in an entirely different field of interest. Students interested in pursuing an academic minor should contact their college dean’s office and the department responsible for the minor program for guidance and advising.
The Wildlife Biology and Management Minor compliments a variety of degree programs at the University of Kentucky. The program is ideal for students planning to pursue careers in conservation, resource management, ecology, husbandry and more.
