The Texas A&M University Department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management educates and trains students to become the next generation of stewards, scientists and policy makers advancing ecosystem sustainability and productivity through science-based management. The department’s curriculum is not entrenched in any one discipline or any single ecosystem. Instead, it equips students with the breadth and depth of knowledge that reflects the diversity of ecosystems in which we live.
Modern ecosystem managers must be able to successfully integrate the biological, physical and social sciences in order to effectively address the evolving challenges facing these resources. Through fieldwork, research and facilitated internships, students experience a range of learning opportunities that extend beyond the traditional classroom, preparing them for real-world applications of knowledge. Further, our undergraduate curriculum is designed to exceed federal qualification standards as well as the certifications administered by professional organizations such as The Wildlife Society, Society for Range Management and American Fisheries Society.
With more than 30 nationally and internationally recognized faculty and a supporting network of wildlife, range and fisheries extension and research specialists, the Department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management is committed to the active, science-based pursuit of resource conservation and higher education.
