At Sul Ross, we believe you learn by doing. That's why you get hands-on experience through the Animal Science degree programs.
The Animal Science program features an expert faculty across a variety of concentrations, from meat science to animal health management to reproductive physiology. Here, students are immersed in the art and science of managing animals and preparing for a career in the animal agricultural industry. Currently, the Animal Science program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture education, animal health management, animal production, equine science, exotic animal production, meat science, reproductive physiology, and pre-veterinary medicine.
Graduate degrees include a Master of Science (Online Non-thesis) and a Master of Science (In-residence, thesis) in Animal Science with concentrations in production, equine, meat science, and reproductive physiology.
An important part of the Animal Science program at Sul Ross is the 500-acre Turner Range Animal Science Center. RAS, as it is commonly known, has specialized laboratories and facilities for animal health management, animal production, equine science, and meat science, to name a few. The University also maintains animals for teaching and research, including a herd of registered horned Hereford cattle.
We take this program seriously, because we know that our students have a passion for working with animals. Our faculty and our emphasis on hands-on learning will get you the attention you deserve and the experience you need to further a career in Animal Science.
