Curriculum & Degree Completion




Welcome from the Program Director
Dr. Selina S. Heppell

PSMFWA is a unique program designed to meet the continuing education needs of professionals in natural resources management and conservation. Oregon State University’s Professional Science Master’s program and E-campus Distance Education program are at the cutting edge of higher education, following a growing national movement in support of innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) instruction. PSMFWA offers working professionals an opportunity to enhance their competitiveness through a flexible, mostly on-line program that emphasizes communication, business and leadership skills as well as advanced instruction in science and human dimensions. Our graduates will create new networks among natural resource agencies and non-governmental organizations through their internships and on-line interactions. Every PSMFWA cohort will be unique, but all will contribute to a new generation of innovative leaders in the science and management of fisheries and wildlife.

I welcome you to our academic family in Oregon State University’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, a top-ranked program that is “home” to our undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff. We aspire to excellence in everything that we do, and strive to provide all of our students with the best education, training and advising in the field. Personal communication is paramount to our efforts, and we hope you will join our Facebook and chat groups to keep in touch. We value your experience, ideas, and contributions to our program. I look forward to interacting with you regularly as you plan your coursework and internships, working with your graduate advisor and our skilled academic advising staff to develop a program that fits your schedule and professional needs. Welcome to PSMFWA!
