Animal Science: General Animal Science (Bachelor of Science)

Overview

Under this concentration, students design a program to suit their needs, or pursue a broader-based program to meet a particular career goal. For example, this option is often used by students who have an interest in human/animal interactions, animal welfare, and zoo animals. The student and advisor select a combination of basic science, production, or companion animal courses and balance these with courses available elsewhere in the College or University. An internship experience is highly recommended.
