Animal Sciences

Degrees offered

The Division of Animal Sciences has a broad-based teaching program, and our faculty members are noted for teaching and mentoring excellence. Our PhD program was recently ranked among the best in the country by the National Research Council and our research program among the best in the world by Reuters. Our graduate program has maintained or increased numbers, support, and placement rates over the past five years. The Division strives to maintain a diverse faculty qualified to teach relevant courses in five discipline areas (reproductive and environmental physiology, ruminant and monogastric nutrition, genetics/genomics, meat science and livestock production) and across six species (swine, dairy cattle, beef cattle, poultry, companion animals and horses) to serve the demand for graduates to be employed nationwide in research, teaching and industry.
