What will I learn?

Building and creating knowledge that integrates biology with animal care and productivity. Biology forms the base for many of the careers you may be interested in – veterinarian, farm manager, scientist, sales, extension agent, field representative, pre-harvest food safety technician, and nutritionist, to name a few. By combining a core animal science curriculum with a focus in other science, technology, or business related courses you can design your own program that best prepares you for your future.

ANIMAL INDUSTRIES: This concentration is great for pursuing careers in multiple agribusinesses, including pharmaceutical, nutrition, reproduction, genetics, farm/animal management, and pre- and post-harvest food safety, among others. It requires a minor with a business or communications focus, as well as an internship.
