Purpose

The Wildlife Management program will provide proven principles and skills, which will enable students to practice the science of wildlife management. The program will enable students to acquire the capability to become assistant Wildlife Biologists, Park Managers, Game Refuge Managers, Hunting Preserve Managers, Private Land (Ranch) Hunting Operators, Eco Tourism Managers and Wildlife Photographers. The Wildlife Management program offers a one-year Certificate and an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree.


Admission Requirements

Students are admitted to the Wildlife Management program through regular college admission procedures (see Admission Regulations section). Students will receive a one-year Certificate and/or an A.A.S. degree upon satisfactory completion of the courses of study and upon making formal application for graduation (see Curricula section).

The Wildlife Management program carries two award options, a one-year Certificate and the two-year A.A.S. degree. The one-year Certificate is TSI exempt, however, those not meeting TSI requirements are encouraged to enroll in the appropriate developmental course(s).

Students who wish to pursue the two-year Certificate and/or the A.A.S. degree must meet all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.
