ANSC Undergraduate Program

Welcome to the Department of Animal and Avian Sciences, where you'll find a small school feel with big opportunities!

The Department of Animal and Avian Sciences provides a rigorous program  for students to learn the application of biology and technology to the care, management and study of domestic and aquatic animals. Our BS Degree program allows students to choose to focus on preparing for entry to graduate or veterinary school through our science/pre-professional track, or preparing for a career in an animal sciences related industry through our animal care and management track.

Our students have a number of opportunities to learn the ins and outs of animal science, apply what they learn in the classroom to hands-on work with animals, and to supplement their education with internships and professional experience in the Washington D.C. area.

On-Campus Farm

Our strategic location provides exciting opportunities for students to study and experience today's modern agriculture. Nine miles from the nation's capital, the University of Maryland at College Park is within easy reach of the country's best research facilities. The ANSC Department is also very unique in being a large suburban/urban institution with our teaching farm right on campus, allowing students to get hands-on experience with a variety of livestock without ever leaving campus! Our program has a small school feel with all the advantages of a large University, and is truly the best of both worlds!
