Overview

The Animal Science program deals with a range of options from basic sciences through companion and zoo animal care to farm management.

General Requirements

Specific Requirements

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.
