The Master of Agriculture in Animal Science is an online, non-thesis program and features an expert faculty across a variety of concentrations. Our goal is to provide the best education and preparation available for professional careers in the animal agriculture industry. The Animal Science Department also offers a Master of Science in Animal Science thesis program.
Programs in Animal Science emphasize, through the mastery of advanced technology, methods of improving and/or better utilizing agricultural resources. The graduate program is designed to prepare students for advanced education (Ph.D.) and/or for careers in teaching, extension service, research, management, and other occupations requiring the higher-level capabilities of resource managers or scientists. GRE scores of 290 (verbal and quantitative) are required for full admission to the M.S. thesis program. Additional requirements for all Master of Science options include a letter of intent, a resume, and two letters of recommendation from outside the department. Departmental GPA requirements are the same as general admission requirements outlined for the university. For the Master of Agriculture degree, admission requirements follow SRSU general admission requirements for graduate studies. The GRE is not required for the Master of Agriculture in Animal Science online program. Offerings in collateral fields enable the student to develop a program tailored to their particular needs and interests
Applications to the Master of Science in Animal Science with thesis (in-residence) and a Master of Agriculture in Animal Science non-thesis (online) degree are accepted year around.
