Interested in the outdoors? Want to become a game warden, work for the DCNR, or be a park ranger for your local state park? A degree in conservation law enforcement is the perfect fit for you.

Conservation law enforcement officers are dedicated to enforcing laws related to environmental conservation, outdoor recreation, and public safety. They deal with laws related to hunting, fishing, trapping, boating, ATVing, snowmobiling, hiking, and habitat preservation.

At Mount Aloysius College, you can get your degree in conservation law enforcement in as little as two years. Prepare for your career by learning a mixture of biology, ecology, and law enforcement practice and theory. Take your education out of the classroom with courses that go into the wild and bring techniques and practices to life.
