About the Department

This department supervises the following degree programs:

Undergraduate Program

The Department of Natural Resources Management is primarily concerned with the application of basic ecological principles to the management and use of natural resources. The curriculum for natural resources management prepares students for professional careers in public and private natural resources, as well as graduate school. The range management and wildlife biology concentrations meet the certification requirements for positions as range conservationists or wildlife biologists for agencies such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management.

Students pursuing a B.S. in Natural Resources Management must make a C or better in departmental courses to be eligible for graduation. The degree has five concentrations: (1) conservation science , (2) fisheries biology , (3) ranch management , (4) range conservation , and (5) wildlife biology .

Club Involvement. Students are encouraged to become actively involved in the clubs sponsored by the Natural Resources Management Department: TTU Chapter of The Wildlife Society, Student Association for Fire Ecology, Student Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, and the Student Chapter of the Society for Range Management. These clubs promote involvement in professional societies such as The Wildlife Society, the American Fisheries Society, the Society for Range Management, and the Soil and Water Conservation Service. Club activities also include regularly scheduled meetings with guest speakers and social events.
