Course info


Animal Science offers programs in both Animal and Dairy Sciences. Students have the opportunity to apply the principles of animal biology, husbandry and behaviour, with molecular biology and other life sciences to a variety of species. Students can apply these principles to farm animals, exotic animals, laboratory animals, and to their own pets. The curriculum is very flexible, which allows students to work with their faculty advisor to plan an individual curriculum in line with their interests and career goals. This is a comprehensive “hands-on, learn-by-doing” program, so students work with animals of several species on a regular basis. Students learn the science and practical applications to be effective problem-solvers and leaders as they move on to professional and graduate schools, animal production and management, animal and dairy food processing, or numerous other career opportunities.

Students may select coursework in one of the following areas: pre-veterinary medicine, food animal production, dairy science, equine science, poultry management, agribusiness, biotechnology, comparative animal biology studies, rangeland resource management, and dairy products technology and meat science.
