PABLO —Salish Kootenai College will now be offering Bachelor and Associates degrees in Wildlife and Fisheries, the first such degree program among the tribal colleges and universities in North America. Students in the Wildlife and Fisheries program will have the opportunity to study the biology, ecology, conservation and management of animals and their habitats. Coursework provides a strong science background while incorporating knowledge of Native American cultures and histories, particularly the Salish, Pend d’Oreille, and Kootenai.

The new Wildlife and Fisheries degrees, along with existing science degrees in Hydrology, Forestry, Life Sciences, General Science, Secondary Science Education, Information Technology, and Computer Engineering, support SKC’s Strategic Plan 2010-2015, which calls for the college to “become a center of science education with an emphasis on Native American worldview and application of science to indigenous issues.”

SKC is currently accepting applications for enrollment in the Wildlife and Fisheries degree program. 

For more information, go to: the SKC website at:, or the SKC campus or call (406) 275-4800. or call Janene Lichtenberg at (406) 275-4896.
