The Program

The Department of Animal Science offers five minor programs open to students majoring in other disciplines who wish to complement their study programs with a minor in Animal Science. Some courses have required prerequisites not included as part of the minor, and students should plan accordingly.

Advising for the minor and course offerings is located in the Animal Science Advising Center in 1202 Meyer Hall; 530-754-7915.
