The Animal Science Program's Graduate Handbook covers all of the information students need to know regarding our policies, regulations, and program requirements. Some frequently asked questions about the handbook include:
1. Are students required to present their research?
Each year around the end of May or beginning of June, the department holds our Annual Symposium (also known as The One-Day Wonder) where graduate students in the department show off their research findings to the faculty, campus, and local research institutions. All graduate students are required to give an oral presentation or a poster of their research. This event gives students the opportunity to practice their presentation skills in front of a knowledgeable audience. Additionally, all students are encouraged to present their research at outside events such as conferences or symposiums. To this end, monetary prizes are awarded to the top presentations at the Symposium for travel purposes.
