Work with Plants and Animals


Master The Science of Life

Working with plants and animals can mean everything from understanding plant and animal genetics to growing crops, running a greenhouse, raising healthy animals, discovering ways to treat diseases, or managing land for plants, animals and people. It’s the science of life, and we’ve been exploring and teaching it since the university began. We provide students with valuable hands-on experiences in the field, on the farm, and in the laboratory. Whether you want life at the speed of chemical reactions and cell division, a trotting horse or a growing plant, we have a program for you.
