Minor Requirements

The Animal Science minor offers a great opportunity for any undergraduate student to pursue their interests in the Animal Science field in an accessible manor. Students declaring a minor in Animal Science must declare the minor prior to graduating.


The minor is satisfied by completing at least 15 credit hours of Animal Science courses. Students completing the Animal Science minor assemble courses, or demonstrate having the equivalent from elsewhere, that include basic and applied biology of animals (i.e. anatomy, physiology, nutrition, genetics) along with a selection of intermediate or advanced offerings from the Animal Science curriculum. All Animal Science courses count towards the 15 credit hours except Special Studies.

Please consult with the Undergraduate Program Coordinator, lig27 [at] cornell.edu (Lindsay Glasner), if you are interested.
