Wildlife Biology Transfer Track
  • Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS)

FVCC’s Wildlife Biology transfer curriculum provides students with foundational knowledge in biology, chemistry and calculus while preparing them to transfer to the University of Montana-Missoula or Montana State University-Bozeman to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree.

FVCC advisors can help you select the best classes to prepare you for a successful transfer to the program of your choice.

FVCC’s small class sizes ensure that students receive a more personal, tailored educational experience, easing their transition to upper-level courses at the University of Montana-Missoula and Montana State University-Bozeman.


  • The University of Montana-Missoula’s Wildlife Biology department prepares students for entry-level positions as wildlife biology managers, researchers and ecologists.

  • Many wildlife biology students choose to continue on to graduate studies for additional employment opportunities.
