The Graduate Program in Animal Sciences offers the Master of Science, Master in Animal Sciences (MAS), and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Training is offered in both applied and basic aspects of animal sciences.
- The MS degree is designed to provide academic training beyond the Bachelor of Science degree in preparation for further graduate education or careers in research, industry, or Extension.
- The MAS program provides an applied, non-thesis degree for graduates and professionals. The program targets individuals who want to increase their knowledge and competence at the graduate level in preparation for entering industry, Extension, or professional school.
- The PhD program is designed to prepare students for positions that involve application of knowledge to various aspects of the animal enterprise, are devoted to pursuit of knowledge in the discipline in which the student was trained, or are in the research segments of industry or various agencies of government.
