Animal physiology is an interdepartmental graduate program developed and offered by faculty in the departments of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, Aquaculture, Fisheries and Wildlife, Biological Sciences, and The Institute of Wildlife and Environmental Toxicology. Applicants should have a strong background in the biological and physical sciences. Students with deficiencies in these sciences may be admitted provided they correct these deficiencies during the first year of their program of study.
The PhD degree does not have formal coursework requirements, but it is recognized that students will have individual deficiencies; therefore, it is the responsibility of the student and his/her major advisor, in consultation with the graduate advisory committee, to prescribe coursework to correct these deficiencies.
All students majoring in Animal and Veterinary Sciences are required to complete AN PH 851.
