What is Animal Science?It is that aspect of Biology that deals with domestic animals. When studying Animal Science, students, with assistance from faculty advisors, develop individualized programs that lead to rewarding careers in a wide variety of occupations. These programs apply to farm, laboratory, zoo, and companion animals; their interaction with human society; and the contribution of animal products, such as milk and meat, to the world food supply. We provide the opportunity to obtain a meaningful Bachelor of Science degree that will serve the individual well in the future. Students in Animal Science may develop a program of study under one of four available options; pre-veterinary, equine, dairy, or general animal science. Read more about our Animal Science options.
