The Animal Science program at Cornell University, which emphasizes training for independent research, is aimed at development of competent scientists who have mastered one subject, have adequate knowledge of related subjects, and have demonstrated their ability to plan, undertake, complete, and interpret research.



Graduate faculty in the Field of Animal Science include members from the Department of Animal Science, Division of Nutritional Sciences, and the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The field requires one more member on the Special Committee of both M.S. and candidates (i.e., three for the M.S., four for the Ph.D.) than is required by the Graduate School. At least one member of the Special Committee must be a member of the faculty in a department other than that of the chairperson. Students in an M.S. or a Ph.D. program are required to assist with the teaching program of the department.

At completion of the Animal Science program at Cornell University, a student should be able to:

  • Make an original contribution to the field.
  • Demonstrate in-depth knowledge in an area of expertise.
  • Demonstrate broad knowledge across several areas in the field.
  • Follow ethical guidelines for working in the field.
  • Effectively communicate to professional and lay audiences about concepts in the field.
