Texas Education Activities

Texas Cooperative Fish & Wildlife logo

As part of our mission, Unit scientists teach graduate level courses, mentor graduate students (Unit students), and conduct workshops for our cooperators. By combining teaching, research and technical assistance to state and federal cooperators while incorporating students into these activities, Unit students have the unique opportunity to pursue a graduate degree while also receiving unparalleled academic-scientific training and applied work experience. Our students can pursue an M.S. or Ph.D. degree through the Natural Resources Management or Biological Sciences departments at Texas Tech University. Please contact the Unit scientist that you are interested in working with and visit the links below to find out more about being a graduate student at Texas Tech University.
