Animal Science – Bioscience Concentration Major Guide for 2011-2012

Animal Science is a diverse and fascinating blend of applied and basic life sciences, ultimately focused on enhancing the efficiency, profitability and sustainability of the domestic animal industries. The Bioscience Concentration is a rigorous science-based program that emphasizes the physical (e.g., chemistry, physics, mathematics) and biological (biology, microbiology, and ecology) sciences.  Students will apply the knowledge of these disciplines in learning animal anatomy, physiology, reproduction, nutrition, health and well being.

Animal Science – Pre-Veterinary Medicine (Pre-Professional) Major Guide for 2011-2012

Animal Science is a diverse and fascinating blend of applied and basic life sciences, ultimately focused on enhancing the efficiency, profitability and sustainability of the domestic animal industries. The Pre-Veterinary (Pre-Professional) Concentrations are extremely rigorous science-based programs that emphasize the physical (e.g., chemistry, physics, mathematics) and biological (biology, microbiology, and ecology) sciences.  Students will apply the knowledge of these disciplines in learning animal anatomy, physiology, reproduction, nutrition, health and well being. 

Environmental and Soil Science – Environmental Science Concentration Major Guide for 2011-2012

Environmental scientists study land, soil, and water resources, and their role in natural and managed ecosystems, often working to remove the hazards that affect people, wildlife, and their environments. Understanding the issues involved in protecting the environment—degradation, conservation, recycling, climate change, and renewal energy—is central to the work of environmental scientists.

Environmental and Soil Science – Soil Science Concentration Major Guide for 2011-2012

Soil Scientists are trained to understand and manage soil and other natural resources such as water, including soil and water conservation issues, land use concerns, best management practices for urban and rural lands, waste disposal, and reclamation of disturbed lands.
