Conservation Law at Husson University, Bangor, ME

This blog contains direct quotes from websites as of 2023. Programs and policies do change, at colleges, from time to time, so please check with the colleges directly to receive any updates. These are not, necessarily, the biggest, best, or most popular programs at the college, but they are the ones that just “caught my eye” as unique, special, interesting, or just plain awesome. Enjoy!


From the Husson University website, 2023: “A Bachelor’s Degree in Conservation Law provides students with a strong knowledge and application of laws regarding wildlife, natural resources and the environment. This program, ideal for those who would rather work outdoors than in an office, also provides an in-depth foundation of biology, ecology and environmental science.


“Students will learn from experienced faculty with a broad range of legal and science backgrounds, and turn theory into practice through a hands-on education. Curriculum includes subjects such as wildlife trafficking, conservation biology, criminalistics and wildlife law enforcement. All students will have the opportunity to gain experience through internship opportunities so they’ll be career-ready upon graduation.



“Students who graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Conservation Law can pursue a wide range of careers within state and national parks, marine patrol, fisheries and wildlife, and other agencies tasked with protecting our country’s natural resources.


“Features of the Program: The Conservation Law program provides students with a strong knowledge and application of laws regarding wildlife, natural resources and the environment.

A vast system of networking enables students to interact with seasoned law enforcement and wildlife officials.


“A Conservation Law major completes credits in professional and general education courses.
