Minor in Wildlife Management

The Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with minor in wildlife management is ideal for students who enjoy the outdoors, interacting with nature, and are interested in the production and management of wildlife in both extensive and intensive management systems.

Student Groups

The Wildlife Society and Block and Bridle are the primary clubs that engage in service, research, and outreach of wildlife-related activities. Students are actively encouraged to participate in any and all department-related clubs such as CFFA and the Pre-Vet Society. They are also welcome to join other groups such as Delta Waterfowl, Ducks Unlimited, the Audubon Society, and the Texas Wildlife Association.
