Students considering graduate work are encouraged to enroll. Placements are limited. The student develops a question to be explored in depth in an area relevant to Animal Science. Working with a faculty supervisor, the student collects relevant data during a series of experiments conducted over the summer months. Two additional advisors participate in the student's committee. Statistical analysis of data is conducted and the student prepares a thesis based on their results. Each student delivers a presentation in a conference setting at the end of the course.
