Animal Science

Animal Science is the largest major at UW-River Falls. The major covers all aspects of farm animal production, including feeding, breeding, health and management as well as the processing of food and fiber products derived from animals. Students receive a rich educational foundation, rooted in both science-based classroom work and hands-on activity at our lab farms.

Students in the Animal Science major receive a well-rounded education. They see firsthand how disciplines such as agricultural business, agricultural engineering and crop science work together with animal science, ultimately preparing them for the challenges of today's animal industries.

Students majoring in animal science must choose an emphasis to focus their studies, including companion animal, equine (horses), meat animal and veterinary technology.
