Wildlife and Outdoor Enterprise Management (WOEM)

wloemMeghan“The WOEM program is unique in many ways; one is that you get class credit to spend the weekend at a shooting range, and another is the diverse and abundant employment opportunities after graduation. Not many other college students can say that they get job offers before finishing their junior year, but I can, all because of this unparalleled degree that gives me the opportunity to do what I love for a living.”
