PREPARE FOR A CAREER IN ANIMAL-RELATED INDUSTRIES AT BERRY.

Modesty prevents us from using all appropriate adjectives when describing our animal science offerings.

Here’s the understated approach: unmatched hands-on learning, exceptional teaching, small classes, stellar facilities, devoted mentorship, immediate access to (a great many) animals and graduate success that speaks for itself.

If we may: there is no better place to prepare for a career (and life) in animal science. Ask our alumni (and the people who hire them). We do it right here.

Hands On

From preventative medicine to animal husbandry, you’ll research alongside your professors. Whether managing livestock or working in a local veterinary clinic, you’ll get (paid) professional experience while deepening your work ethic and preparing for graduate school.
