Many career options are available with a degree in Animal Science. Through experiential learning, the Animal Science program will provide a high quality educational experience. For the most part, students will complete general education courses during their first two years at NTU to prepare for more specialized courses in their third and fourth years. Knowledge in these specialized subjects lays the framework for entry into a broad range of professions in Native American communities, as well as throughout the United States and also to pursue advanced professional degrees, such as a D.V.M. (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine), medical school, pharmacy school, physical therapy, dental school, etc.

A student needs to complete the core Animal Science and general education courses within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.00 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). To complete the program, a credit load of 13-15 per semester along with summer sessions are mandatory.
