|Sul Ross offers both thesis and non-thesis programs of study for master's degrees in animal science. The programs emphasize methods of improving or better using agricultural resources and prepares students for doctoral programs and for careers in teaching, extension service, research management and other occupations that require the higher-level abilities of a resource manager or scientists. Offerings in collateral fields enable students to develop a program tailored to their particular needs and interests.
In addition, students must complete seven semester hours of ANSC graduate work. These may include upper-level undergraduate courses in ANSC for graduate credit (G) or graduate-level courses from other departments.
