Preparing Natural Resources Stewards of Tomorrow
“In the department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries management, there’s something for everyone. Whether you like aquatics, forestry, or land management, there are so many options to choose from. And it’s okay if you don’t find your one right away because there’s a family environment of not just peers but a diverse network of professionals that support you and can help you find a field you’re passionate about and develop your skills in a practical way.”

We have assembled a diverse and knowledgeable advisor community dedicated to providing our students with high-quality academic advising services. If you are a current student and have questions about your coursework, degree program or progress toward graduation, we encourage you to reach out to one of the WFES Advising Hub.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
Students at Texas A&M get a world-class education at a reasonable cost—and graduate with far less college-related debt than their peers at other universities. We award approximately $25,000 in scholarships annually to undergraduate students in the Department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management and support graduate students through assistantships and fellowships, travel and research grants. This funding is made possible by donors and supporters of the department including former students, family and friends, former faculty and industry sponsors.
