Graduate Students

The Department of Animal Sciences offers graduate programs leading to Master's or Doctorate degrees. Broad opportunities exist for course work and research in areas including:

And much more!


Two options exist for the M.S. degree. The first is a traditional research-based degree culminating in a thesis. The second is a non-thesis option with an emphasis on preparing students for professional opportunities in animal agriculture-related businesses. The non-thesis option includes a professional development project generated through internship or applied, business-related research. (The non-thesis option is not designed to prepare students for advancement into the Ph.D. program.)

The Ph.D. degree offers students a great deal of flexibility in creating their program of study in Animal Sciences as faculty also participate in interdepartmental committees on genetics, nutritional sciences and physiological science.
