For prospective undergraduates, there are many opportunities in the majors that are housed within the department: Animal Science and Animal Science and Management. These majors offer specializations in animal industry, animal biology, aquaculture, avian sciences, companion animal biology, equine science, laboratory animals, and livestock production. The curriculum provides a strong science background as well as hands-on, working with animals experience. Research and internship opportunities, from the basic to the applied, abound. Check out our Animal Science Advising page and the facilities pages for more information.
For prospective graduate students, our faculty are members of the following graduate groups: Animal Behavior; Animal Biology; Avian Sciences; Cellular and Developmental Biology; Ecology; Genetics; Immunology; International Ag Development; Microbiology; Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology; Nutritional Biology; and Pharmacology and Toxicology. Admission to either a M.S. or Ph.D. program is through the individual graduate groups but the faculty mentor is housed within the Department of Animal Science.

We also offer an abbreviated one year postgraduate certificate program for bachelors degree holders interested in advancing their training in the disciplines of animal science.
