My suggestion- whatever you do, make sure you specialize in something. ( education, engineering, wildlife biology, etc.) . There are a zillion college grads out there with general degrees like business administration and communications. Not saying you can't get a job with those type degrees but if you set yourself apart from the masses, your chances will be better at finding a job.

UTK and TN TECH are both good options for a wildlife and fisheries degree. I am partial to UTK. It worried me this year when my community college students came within one question of beating TN TECHs quiz bowl team at conclave.....and they had upper division students and a grad student on their team. I had freshmen and sophomores.

A great person to contact at UTK would be Dr. David Buehler. 865-974-7126. He has been there for about 20 years and knows what is going on.

I guess you need to figure out what decent money means to you. Just because you love the outdoors and wildlife doesn't mean that should be your "day job". The words "Animals" and "wildlife" and "decent money" usually don't belong in the same sentence unless you are a vet in my experience.

Just saying...money isn't everything. Do something you'll like and everything else will fall into place.

Surveyor, is what I wished I had done.


Its a great outdoors job, will probably take 6 years to get your license, college can knock off 4 of those years

Anything that requires a license its a good field to get into
