BS: Animal Science Degree Plan (ANSC)


The animal science degree is designed to prepare students to effectively serve the livestock industry by producing graduates conversant in issues related to animal agriculture. The curriculum is designed for academically talented students interested in the application of biology and technology to the care, management and study of domestic animals. While the program emphasizes traditional farm species of dairy cattle, beef cattle and swine, it also addresses companion animals, small ruminants, and poultry. The animal science curriculum contains a fundamental animal science core accompanied by emphasis tracks. The tracks are pre-veterinary medicine and health, business and industry, livestock management, and biotechnology and research. Graduates are prepared for admission to professional and/or graduate programs for advanced studies or entry into career fields.
