Doctor of Philosophy in Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management

The Doctor of Philosophy degree in Rangeland, Wildlife, and Fisheries Management is designed primarily for students pursuing an academic or research career in natural resource management and ecology, with an emphasis in wildlife, fisheries, rangelands, or human dimensions and policy. The RWFM curriculum aims to provide students with a multi-disciplinary toolkit grounded in cutting-edge science to address an array of questions confronting the management of natural resources in Texas, the nation, and beyond. With the goal of conserving our natural legacy in a dynamic and fluid social-ecological system, students are provided an educational foundation that equips them to address complexity across multiple social-ecological systems and scales. This program involves intensive research, guided coursework, and a resulting dissertation demonstrating superior knowledge and understanding of the subject area.
