Undergraduate Students

The Department of Animal Science offers a variety of courses in animal and food science. The department has modern laboratories and excellent animal facilities including a livestock teaching arena and a meat processing facility. Courses in animal science, food science and pathobiology are the core offerings in the various options. The Department of Animal Science and the Department of Veterinary Science have combined curriculum under Animal and Veterinary Science (ANVS).

The curriculum leads to a wide variety of career opportunities for animal and veterinary science graduates. The various options provide maximum flexibility to meet the changing needs of students and their employers. A student may also choose to combine 2 options (example= Production/Business) and/or add a minor in order to broaden their education in Animal Science.

Students are encouraged to participate in activities related to their degree option. The department offers a livestock judging team, a meats judging team and a wool judging team. Each team travels and participates in at least one major exposition a year. Internships are available to gain practical experience.
