We take hands-on learning seriously. Students interested in veterinary medicine gain unique experiences working with animals at the Champaign County Humane Society.
Helping youth find their future in animal sciences is our goal. Hosting judging contests and other educational events are just a few ways we connect students to our department.
Our graduate program ranks in the Top 3 in the nation among universities with similar programs. Students apply cutting-edge research techniques in the lab to solve real-world problems.
State-of-the-art research facilities take you “out of the lecture” and allow you to apply classroom knowledge in realistic settings on the university farms.
Discover how science, along with ethics and experience, can drive changes in animal agriculture in a new freshman course titled, “Contemporary Animal Issues.”
