    The Animal Bio-Health Sciences (ABHS) Program encompasses the science and management of domestic species, including physiology, reproduction, genetics, nutrition, and health of livestock and pets. Our program is consistent with the institution’s land-grant mission of teaching, research and extension. With excellent faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, work and research opportunities, the program has all the resources that are necessary to give students an education in the ever-growing field of Animal Sciences.

    Our program has been carefully designed to provide practical skills balanced with basic scientific knowledge to qualify students from an urban or rural background for employment in a wide variety of animal-oriented occupations.

    Different options are available in the Animal Bio-Health Sciences program including courses in anatomy and physiology, feeds and feeding, nutrition and metabolism, breeding and genetics, reproductive physiology, and production and management. In addition, the Animal Bio-Health Sciences program’s curriculum prepares students for admission to all veterinary colleges in the United States.
