About the Department of Animal Science

About the Department of Animal Science

The Department of Animal Science has a number of programs for students who wish to study animal science at the undergraduate level. Whether they are interested in the improvement of livestock production from the point of view of nutrition, breeding, reproduction, and welfare; the study of animals in a health context; or even the advancement of biotechnological processes in laboratory research and animal models to better understand human health and disease, there is a specialization that will appeal to their interests.

The Department of Animal Science plays a crucial role in offering four important specializations:

  • Animal Biology
  • Animal Health and Disease
  • Animal Production
  • International Agriculture

Each of these specializations must be taken within the context of a major, and will depend on the student's orientation towards animal production management, animal biotechnology, further studies in animal health, international studies, and/or graduate studies.

Any student with an interest in animals who wishes to become a professional agrologist (a member of the Ordre des agronomes du Québec), should register in the Agro-Environmental Sciences Major and take the specialization in Animal Production, as well as the obligatory specialization in Professional Agrology.
