The Zoo Science major also focuses on conservation, but it is specifically designed to prepare students for careers in the zoo and aquarium industry. The major combines classroom instruction with hands-on internships and laboratories. The Zoo Science major covers all aspects of zoo science and conservation, including husbandry, handling, care, nutrition, disease, behavior, training, and aquarium management. It includes a one year, part-time internship at a zoo or aquarium, divided between animal husbandry and public education. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to internships. The Zoo Science major is open to full-time non-transfer freshmen only.
