Applied Animal Science: An Overview
From Sarah Schaier
At UNH's Applied Animal Science program, you will handle farm animals starting week one. Labs and comprehensive animal facilities introduce you to a wide range of subjects and give you firsthand experience turning knowledge into practice. UNH is one of only three universities that offer you an opportunity to run a dairy cooperative and manage every aspect of a dairy herd. You can also work with poultry in our Poultry Experiential Education Program (PEEP) and sheep as part of the livestock management course. After obtaining an associate degree in applied animal science, qualified students may then transfer to the university’s four-year major and obtain a bachelor’s degree. Watch our video to learn more.
