About

Outstanding Animal, Nutrition and Food Sciences students at The University of Vermont interested in various aspects of animal science can pursue both the master's and Ph.D. degrees within the department. Students pursuing the Ph.D. become members of the ANFS (Animal, Nutrition and Food Science) Ph.D. graduate program and conduct their research under the guidance of an ASCI mentor.

Overview

During their Animal, Nutrition and Food Sciences program of study at The University of Vermont, graduate students at UVM work closely with their faculty mentor and committee members who are often from other Departments. Typically a master's degree candidate acquires skills in research design and conduct as well as methodologies relevant to their research project. Candidates for the Ph.D. gain these skills as well as the ability to independently conduct, design and review their own research. Our students also undertake a variety of coursework during their program and are given the opportunity to gain valuable teaching skills that we feel are essential for all students in the sciences.

Learning outcomes

Graduate students enjoy access to a variety of excellent facilities across campus. Our nearby Miller research facility is used for studies involving livestock and complements other animal facilities on campus that are used to study models such as genetically-modified rodents. Several faculty within ASCI are members of the Vermont Cancer Center that provides students with access to state-of-the-art microscopy and genetic analysis facilities. Our relationship with the Miner Institute also provides the opportunity for students to explore additional research topics in dairy cattle nutrition and behavior. Did we mention that Burlington continually ranks as one of the most livable cities in the U.S.? Learn about Burlington, VT.
