What will I learn?

Animal and veterinary science is a hands-on major in which you will study subjects related to sustainable agriculture and the health and well-being of animals. From animal physiology and nutrition to marketing, meat processing, organic chemistry and microbiology, you will have the opportunity to customize your degree to your desired career.

Yes, you will learn the necessary science to fuel your future, but you are just as likely to have your arm in a cannulated cow, working with livestock at the farm or studying viruses that affect Wyoming’s deer.

The animal and veterinary science program offers a rich educational experience characterized by small classes, amazing facilities, undergraduate research, study abroad and intercollegiate competitions.

  • Animal biology
  • Business
