Natural Resource Management

Our classroom is the great outdoors - the Big Bend region of Texas. The NRM faculty and staff share your passion and respect for nature and wildlife. If you're looking for a school where you can immerse yourself in studying range ecology, wildlife biology, ranching or conservation, you'll feel right at home in this wide-open country. The Sul Ross Natural Resource Management program is built on giving our students the hands-on training and experience they will need in their future careers and a solid footing in scientific principles. Our students and graduates spend a lot of time out in the field, studying the natural world. They work in labs and on remote sites, learning how to use sophisticated equipment to measure and analyze the environment. Our students get experience with real world research through the Borderlands Research Institute. The Department of Natural Resource Management has both a Bachelor's and Master's program.  A Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resource Management can be obtained  with concentrations in:

For each concentration, there is considerable specialization, but across the disciplines, there is a focus on ecology, wildlife, and land management. Natural Resource Management concentrations can lead to professional certifications, such as The Wildlife Society certified wildlife biologist and Society for Range Management certified range professional. This is all to prepare graduates for a variety of career options, including range conservationist, ranch manager, wildlife biologist, and game warden. Here, you can follow your passion for being out in nature and turn it into a career. If you're looking for that kind of opportunity, follow the links on the sidebar or contact nrm@sulross.edu today.
