Animal science majors explore advances in animal feeding, breeding, reproduction and management techniques as well as health and welfare of animals. Students complete a set of core courses in breeding and genetics, nutrition, physiology and management.
As a major, animal science provides flexibility, allowing academic advisors to guide students through a program of study that is consistent with their interests and goals.
Scientific principles of biology and animal science are taught using horses, dairy cattle, beef cattle, swine, poultry, sheep and companion animals. Students apply classroom principles to animal science labs and the teaching and research centers on campus.
