Animal Biology Masters of Science

An M.S. degree in Animal Biology is offered by the Animal Biology Graduate Group. This degree was previously offered as the M.S. in Animal Science. The Animal Biology Graduate Group is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary program reflecting the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature of animal biology. Research interests of mentoring faculty cover a continuum from basic to applied.

In general, research is mission-oriented recognizing that practical solutions require a sound knowledge of the complete biology of the organism, system, and environment. Over 30 people work in disciplines such as behavior, ecology, genetics, nutrition, and physiology.

Approximately one half of the former M.S. graduates have utilized the degree as the terminal degree for their first career position; approximately one third of the former M.S. graduates have successfully completed a Ph.D. degree and one sixth have entered professional school.

The Animal Biology Graduate Group is housed in the Department of Animal Science. Mentoring faculty are located within the Animal Science Department and in other departments within and outside the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
