The Animal Science curriculum provides a foundation in biological and physical sciences, augmented by applications to production in western environments. It prepares students to transfer into an advanced degree program in any of several options within animal science. Graduates find employment in feed and health product companies, livestock management and marketing, breed associations, government agencies, or the meat industry. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
Total General Education Requirements: 26-28 Credits
Core and Elective courses taken as part of completion of a degree program may also be used to meet General Education requirements where applicable. Please note that use of these courses to meet General Education requirements may reduce the number of hours required to complete a degree, however that number cannot be reduced below the institutional minimum of 60 credits.
