About the Natural Resources Management Bachelor's Program


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 tracks: (1) ranch management , (2) wildlife biology , (3) fisheries biology , (4) range conservation , and (5) conservation science . The wildlife biology track can meet the minimum requirements recommended by the Wildlife Society for wildlife biologist certification, and the fisheries biology track can meet the minimum certification requirements recommended by the American Fisheries Society for a fisheries professional. The range conservaton track meets the accreditation standards of the Society for Range Management.

Communication Literacy Requirement. Students attending Texas Tech University for the first time in the Fall 2017 term or later will complete a Communication Literacy requirement in their program(s) of study.

Texas Tech University’s transition from the Writing Intensive requirement to the Communication Literacy requirement signals the university’s awareness that in addition to the fundamental role that writing plays in enabling students to explore, develop, focus, and organize a message, other types of communication must also be taught as appropriate for a student’s discipline. Throughout each program of study, then, students must be given ample opportunity to develop their skills in forms of communication central to that program.

Communication Literacy courses for the Natural Resources Management major include NRM 3325 , NRM 3302 , NRM 3323 , NRM 4306 , NRM 4335 , NRM 4401 , NRM 3304 , NRM 3304 , and NRM 4408 .
