Animal Science and Management

Animal science and management majors are educated in not only the field of animal science, but in marketing, economics, and accounting as well. Students are part of one of the largest and most distinguished animal science departments in the world, gaining a strong background in the skills it takes to succeed in today's business world as well as in careers associated with animal breeding and production.

Real World

Animal science and management majors from UC Davis are currently working in agribusiness, banking and financial institutions, the Peace Corps, animal health and biotechnology. This is also an excellent major to consider if you would like to attend medical or graduate school.

Major Requirements

As an animal science and management major, you will begin your journey with courses designed to give you a fundamental knowledge of the natural sciences, such as nutrition, genetics, physiology and behavior. Once you've mastered the sciences, you will have the freedom to focus on the particular animal species that interests you (including horses, cattle, sheep, cats, dogs, goats, fish, crustaceans and others), as well as principles of managerial economics.
