Animal Science Major
This video was made by students in the Animal Science Capstone course as seniors in Animal Science.
Animal science is concerned with the science and business of domestic animals, including livestock species (horses, beef and dairy cattle, sheep, goats, swine and poultry) and companion animals. Animal scientists study the application of principles in the biological, physical and social sciences, chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, nutrition, and also problems associated with livestock production and management. Not only does our department concern itself with production, but we also offer an excellent Pre-Vet option.
Our department offers many opportunities to anyone considering a degree in Animal Science, including prominent judging teams, a large number of student organizations, and hands-on teaching facilities that other colleges cannot provide.
In addition, the department directs the pre-professional course preparation for veterinary medicine. Degree plans are also available for students interested in pre-professional health, nursing and law.
Within animal science, you have the opportunity to select an option (predefined emphasis area) so that your plan of study meets your needs.
