Undergraduate Majors

The Animal Science department is comprised of two majors and 12 study options. Within our department, a student can earn a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (BSAG) in Animal Science or Food Science. Within each major, you have the option to select a predefined emphasis area or work with your faculty advisor to customize your plan of study.

Our department has a lot to offer anyone considering a degree in Animal Science or Food Science, including prominent judging teams, a large number of student organizations and facilities that other colleges cannot provide.

The Department of Animal Science has one of the largest majors and the largest departmental scholarship offering on campus, but it is perhaps the most personal department as well. We think you’ll find a family atmosphere in our department, and the connections you'll make are ones that you will have for a lifetime.
