About

The curriculum of the Animal Science program at the Mississippi State University is based on a total of 30 credit hours. 

Overview

Key Features

This Animal Science program at the Mississippi State University requires a thesis. The student must have completed or will be required to complete in addition to the graduate coursework, 9 credit hours of animal/dairy sciences courses. These 9 credit hours must include at least one course in breeding, nutrition, or reproduction and at least one course in a species-specific production system.

Students not holding a degree in animal or dairy sciences (or related field) will be required to do at least one of the above, as directed by the major advisor. Any undergraduate courses would not be included in the program of study.
