Cal Poly Master's Degree Programs

Animal Science

MS Agriculture, Specialization in Animal Science

Courses in animal husbandry date back to Cal Poly's very first classes offered in 1903. Today, the specialization offers students the opportunity to apply the principles of animal biology, molecular biology and other life sciences to a variety of species including farm animals, exotic animals, laboratory animals, as well as their own pets. This degree provides students with an interdisciplinary, science-based curriculum, in which students develop basic scientific knowledge, apply that knowledge to a research project, then write and defend a thesis.
