Your whole world is right there.

In Animal Science, our faculty are conducting pioneering research and are sought-after experts in their fields. But mentoring you and cultivating your talents is their top priority.

Our facilities are more than world class. They are a world of their own. You’re never more than steps from the dairy, beef, swine, sheep, goat, and deer barns—because we believe some of our best teachers don’t walk on two legs.

Animal Science is the right major if you’re:

  • prepping for graduate or veterinary school
  • interested in animal-related research
  • driven to manage a farm or other business related to animals
  • pursuing a career in agricultural sales or service
  • hoping to impact our communities through community-based education
