Careers in Animal Science

Many of our students are interested in pursuing careers in veterinary medicine. We have a program that allows students interested in veterinary medicine to meet the basic vet school requirements, in a timely fashion. What makes our program unique is the quantity of large animal exposure our students receive. Our program is structured around large, food-producing animals like beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep and pigs, and as a result, students in our program have the chance to work with these animals. Our faculty are experts in large, food animal production and management and that is the focus of our program!
