Wildlife mangement students at SWTJC will benefit from an articulation agreement signed Friday (June 14) with Sul Ross State University (SRSU). The agreement solidifies an existing relationship in the area of wildlife management education.
When students enroll to complete an Associate of Applied Science in Wildlife Management at SWTJC in Uvalde, they will follow a defined degree program with the assurance that credits earned will transfer directly to SRSU in Alpine.
SRSU President Dr. Ricardo Maestas, SRSU Dean of Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences Dr. Robert Kinucan, SWTJC President-Elect Dr. Hector Gonzales and SWTJC Chair of Wildlife Management Robert Zaiglin took part in the official signing.
With the new agreement in place, students will be able to make a smooth transition to finish a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resource Management with a concentration in Wildlife Management. In addition, they will have the advantage of already knowing the faculty they will be learning under and what classes are required.
The two schools will work cooperatively to discuss and update coursework as needed, share information about any changes in programs and facilitate access to faculty and students.
Graduates will be well prepared to fill positions in wildlife biology and management for resource management agencies, national and state parks, and in the thriving private ranch wildlife industry.
SWTJC and SRSU share the belief in making quality higher education accessible to residents in west and southwest Texas, and this new agreement makes it easier than ever for students to complete a four-year degree in a growing field.
