Wildlife Technology Degree Earns Accreditation

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Wildlife Technology at Front Range Community College has received a three-year accreditation from the North American Wildlife Technology Association (NAWTA).

NAWTA is an international association that assesses classroom, indoor laboratory, and field experiences used to develop field competencies.

The Wildlife Technology degree allows the student to focus on principles of wildlife technology and research techniques to assist in wildlife and land management. The degree includes not only practical field skills, but also the theory and applications for the study and management of wildlife, fisheries, and wild bird populations.

The Forestry, Wildlife, and Natural Resources Program at the Fort Collins campus of FRCC prepares students for a wide range of careers in natural resources and for further study at four-year institutions such as Colorado State University, Northern Arizona University, University of Minnesota, Crookston and Montana State University.

In addition to an Associate of Applied Science degree and an Associate of General Studies degree, the program grants certificates in environmental education, forestry, natural resources, natural resources geographic information systems, natural resources recreation, wildland fire, and wildlife.
