Gain hands-on experience by caring for an assigned livestock animal at our new Agriculture Education Center, the only one of its kind in the country.
You can pursue vet school, work in wildlife parks and zoos or other contexts with an animal science degree from Andrews. We offer small class sizes, field trips and lab experiences with actual animals—opportunities that prepare you for advanced schooling and real life.
Our teachers love animals. In our department, all of our teachers work in the fields that they teach.
The combination of science-based courses and hands-on experience will prepare you for any of the dozens of careers with animals.
