A student may work on a problem covering more than one area of study. Animal resources (beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, swine, sheep, and laboratory animals) are available for use in various research programs. The Animal Sciences program is offered at University of Florida.


Key facts:

  • Nutrition, physiology, and meats laboratories are available for detailed chemical and carcass quality evaluations, and excellent computer facilities are available. Special arrangements may be made to conduct research at the various branch agricultural experiment stations throughout Florida. The Animal Sciences program is offered at University of Florida.
  • The Graduate School restricts graduate students from pursuing minors in academic units that contribute major credit toward their degree program. Therefore, graduate students majoring in Animal Sciences cannot pursue a minor in Food and Resource Economics, Food Science and Human Nutrition, Medicine-Biochemistry, and Veterinary Medical Sciences. In addition, undergraduate credits at the 3000–4000 level in the major of any of these listed academic units are not eligible to count toward degree requirements.
