Graduate Degree Programs in Animal Science

Our department has a variety of agricultural species and our faculty specialize in management, breeding and genomics, growth and development biology, meat science, nutrition, and nutritional, lactational and reproductive physiology.

Our degree programs are designed to provide the knowledge, training, and perspectives expected of holders of these degrees. Insofar as possible, the pattern of course work and the area of thesis research will be designed to meet the specific interests and needs of the student. These plans of study will be developed within the general procedures and regulations of The Graduate School.
