The Animal Sciences degree encompasses a wide range of animal science and industry areas of study including food safety, equine or dairy production, industry and production animal systems, marketing, research and utilization of animals in agriculture, entertainment and companionship. The Science and Pre-Professional option pairs the core animal science classes taught about all livestock with a group of science intensive courses, such as biochemistry, organic chemistry and physics.  Within the Sci & Pre-Prof. option there are two pathways offered, equine and general. The Sci and Pre-Prof option is a great choice for students preparing to pursue a graduate level degree as well as careers in science and research-related fields.
