Animal Science

The Animal Science program is designed to introduce students to the world of domestic animal agriculture.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

Students will gain academic and practical knowledge of animal agriculture, including reproduction, growing, feeding, health management of breeding and market livestock.  The ultimate goal of developing livestock through the entire supply chain in a global environment.

The Animal Science program is a two-year course of study.

The Associate of Science (A.S.) degree program is for students who plan on transferring to a four-year institution to continue their educational pursuit in animal science.

The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program provides the training and skills necessary to enter livestock production, either as an employee, or as a producer. Students following this curriculum can qualify for the Associate of Science degree, as detailed in the Casper College Catalog. Although this is an A.A.S. degree, graduates from this program may apply this degree toward an online applied science degree at the University of Wyoming at Casper.
