Academics

Nutrition and Food Science

The master of science in animal and nutritional sciences allows maximum flexibility in courses and research problems. Students may major in either animal physiology and biochemistry or nutrition and food sciences. They may work with beef and dairy cattle, sheep, swine, poultry, or laboratory animals and with issues in human health and nutrition. Research problems in farm animals, laboratory animals and human nutrition issues form the basis for many studies, but a comparative approach is emphasized. A master of science degree is available as a thesis or coursework option.
