Berry College’s animal science programs are designed
to prepare students for a professional career in animal-related industries. The department of animal science provides students with a
firm foundation in the biological and natural sciences as they relate to animal
science in preparation for meaningful, rewarding and challenging animal-related
professions. The program is based on high academic standards.
In order to provide the best possible
learning opportunities to meet our student’s academic objectives, the
department of animal science offers a BS degree within two distinct
concentrations. In addition, there is ample opportunity to pursue minor degrees
The Animal Science Concentration I - Pre-Vet/Pre-Professional Science, is
intended for those wishing to pursue post-graduate education such as veterinary
medicine, research or other science related fields. Course selection and
electives are typically made in consultation with an academic advisor to
provide you with the best opportunities to meet your academic objectives.
Animal Science Concentration II – Production/Management, is intended to
provide maximum flexibility for the student to specialize in areas of interest
within the animal industry. Graduates with animal science degrees
often pursue careers directly into animal-related industries such as
pharmaceuticals, poultry production, county agriculture extension work, and management
of beef cattle and dairy operations. Course selection and electives are
typically made in consultation with an academic advisor to provide you
with the best opportunities to meet your academic objectives.
