Animal Science

Do you love working with animals?

Have you considered a job in Animal Science?

Animal Science may be a program of interest to you.  Our Animal Science students learn all about animal breeds, care, nutrition, and medical needs as well as the science behind food production.  Students love getting hands-on experience and learning more about animals of all kinds, from their household pets to the livestock that feeds the world.  Animal science is great for any student who likes animals and thinks they might want to make a career out of that love.
