Our small animal science program provides students with a comprehensive liberal arts and science education that focuses on the study of companion and small animal species. The program combines a broad background in life sciences with classes that focus specifically on small animals and biotechnology.

Students will be taught both in a classroom setting as well as in a hands-on setting, giving them the opportunity to learn about small animal handling, care, disease, behavior, nutrition, training, husbandry and management. This balance of education and experience will prepare students to either further their education in veterinary school or graduate school or to pursue a career in the field of small animal science.

Those who complete our small animal science program will find opportunities in a variety of small animal science jobs, including wildlife biology, conservation, game management, zoo or aquarium management, biomedical research, pharmaceutical research, wildlife rehabilitation and much more.
