About

During the Animal and Veterinary Sciences degree offered by The University of Vermont, graduate students work closely with their faculty mentor and committee members who are often from other Departments.

Overview

What you will learn

Typically students from the Animal and Veterinary Sciences degree offered by The University of Vermont acquire skills in research design and conduct as well as methodologies relevant to their research project.

Our students also undertake a variety of coursework during their program and are given the opportunity to gain valuable teaching skills that we feel are essential for all students in the sciences.

Graduate students enjoy access to a variety of excellent facilities across campus. Our nearby Miller research facility is used for studies involving livestock and complements other animal facilities on campus that are used to study models such as genetically-modified rodents.

Several faculty within ASCI are members of the Vermont Cancer Center that provides students with access to state-of-the-art microscopy and genetic analysis facilities. Our relationship with the Miner Institute also provides the opportunity for students to explore additional research topics in dairy cattle nutrition and behavior.
