I don't know for sure but I would guess just about any of the natural sciences (zoology, biology, chemistry, animal sciences). I know a lot of jobs just want something somewhat applicable and to know that you have what it takes to graduate.

If you just want to become a game warden than a Criminal Justice major will be just fine, if you want to something else then forestry or wildlife management or something along those lines.

You can probably find what you're looking for here.

You could also give them a call or shoot them and email, I'm sure they'd be happy to speak with you.

You'll need at least a Bachelor's either in law enforcement or biology...a bachelor's in both would be preferred, but you should pick one or the other, with the preference given to law enforcement because it is really difficult to find jobs in the wildlife biology field, and even the jobs that are available do not pay very well without a Master's, PHD, or years upon years of experience. Believe it or not...there's a lot of stuff you can do in a biology related field with a business degree, and it's probably a more secure college investment...same with the law degree. Good luck!

Biology is what you need in AR. You can be a warden with just a law enforcement degree but if you want to make a career out of it and really get involved get the paper. It'll be more rewarding and you can be a more rounded person.
