Rangeland Management


Start Here, Get There

Program Overview

The Rangeland Management program is a joint effort between Western Nebraska Community College (WNCC) and Chadron State College (CSC) to provide students with core curricular work as well as the foundational work for an eventual Bachelor of Science degree in Rangeland Management. The program is offered through WNCC and CSC with the ultimate culmination of the program through the Department of Applied Science at Chadron State College.

The program includes course offerings applicable to an Associate's degree from WNCC as well as a Bachelor's degree from CSC. The program provides for the reverse transfer of CSC credit to be applied to the Associate's degree from WNCC. Agricultural classes are delivered to WNCC by CSC via the ITV delivery system.

This two year program fulfills WNCC General Education Core requirements as well as help fulfill CSC Essential Studies requirements in addition to delivering the appropriate agricultural foundation classes to pursue the advanced degree.

Upon acceptance and transfer to CSC, students have the opportunity to branch out into one of three rangeland management options including Rangeland Ecology, Rangeland Livestock Management and Rangeland Wildlife Management.
