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 students is focused upon relevant and tangible skills and experiential learning opportunities to prepare students for professional careers working for public and private natural resources management agencies, as well as graduate school. The degree plans are geared toward meeting certification requirements for positions as range conservationists or wildlife biologists for agencies such as Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management.

Club Involvement. Students are encouraged to become actively involved in the clubs sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources Management: The Wildlife Society at Texas Tech (, 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, as well as engagement and experiences with professionals.
