The Department of Animal Sciences
A degree in animal sciences is one of the most popular options for students who love biology and life sciences. Jobs in animal sciences are plentiful, and our graduates are always eagerly recruited by employers.
In the Department of Animal Sciences, you will find a culture that encourages and promotes critical thinking and creative investigation that will prepare you for life-long learning in a rewarding, professional career.
Consistent with the institution’s land-grant mission of teaching, research and outreach, highly qualified and enthusiastic faculty and staff provide first-class advising and instruction, guiding students through the Bachelor of Science degrees in Animal Science, Animal Science-Industry, or Laboratory Animal Science.
Students enjoy personalized attention and hands-on experience in real-world settings. Summer-internships, participation on faculty research projects, and opportunities for leadership roles in organizations are part of the student experience. If your interests include studying abroad, we will guide you toward student-exchange programs with international institutions of high acclaim. Undergraduates in animal sciences are also encouraged to apply for the Undergraduate Research Scholars Program.
Our motto is, “Students first.” Your success is our “Aggie Pride!” Please ask us more about what a degree in Animal Sciences can do for you.
