The Department of Animal Science encourages our students to get involved during their time at the U of A and take advantage of the opportunities available within the department and Bumpers College.

Animal science students have the opportunity to join various clubs, teams and organizations, volunteer with departmental outreach and education programs, and conduct and present research in their undergraduate and graduate careers. The department also offers faculty-led study abroad programs specifically tailored to animal science students in addition to those offered throughout Bumpers College.

If you are a student in need of assistance with academic advising, please contact the Bumpers College Student Services Team.
