Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries

Discover. Explore. Learn.

We are here to conserve, protect, manage and restore our shared natural resources.

The Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries is located in the Herbert College of Agriculture at the University of Tennessee. We offer two exciting areas of study: the forestry major and the wildlife and fisheries major.

The department also has multiple master’s degree programs and a doctoral program in natural resources. Our curricula focus on a mastery learning approach, emphasizing practical, hands-on experiences. Our faculty, staff, and students conduct research and Extension activities that advance the science and sustainable management of our natural resources.

Whether we are improving timber harvest methods or restoring native fish species to our rivers, our research and Extension work make our world a better, more enjoyable place to live.

We are committed to making our department a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
