Associate of Science in Animal Science

Does working directly with animals spark your interest? If so, the Associate of Science in Animal Sciences might be for you.  This degree is for students who are interested in pursuing a career in production in meat, eggs or wool, becoming a veterinarian, or working in nutrition.  

This degree aligns with the courses in the Animal Science degree at Oregon State University (OSU). Students who want to directly transfer to OSU after completing this degree, are highly encouraged to work directly with an OSU academic advisor.

Some of the classes within this degree can be completed in high school, so if this is a degree for you, contact your high school counselor to find out which classes you could take before coming to TBCC.
