Poultry Technology and Management - (ARCHIVE)


The major in Poultry Technology and Management helps prepare students for careers in the poultry indutry and related fields. It provides an integrated program of study in the biological and business aspects of Poultry Science, including feed manufacturing, breeding and hatching, production, marketing, and processing. Students have a wide choice of specific courses, and they are encouraged (but not required) to spend one semester as an intern in the industry.

The flexibility of the major permits program planning commensurate with the individual's interests and professional goals. A wide variety of positions in industry are available upon completion of the baccalaureate degree. Other kinds of interests may require further training at the graduate or professional level in science or business. In the latter case, an early identification of such interests is desirable for selection of courses appropriate for admission to advanced programs.

For the B.S. degree in Poultry Technology and Management, a minimum of 126 credits is required.

POULTRY TECHNOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT MINOR: Students must take 12 credits in Poultry Science courses (including PTYSC 200, 201, 410) and at least 6 credits from AN SC 001(4), FD SC 320(3); PTYSC 301(3), 407(3), 425(3), 455(2), 495(1-2), 496(1-3), for a total of at least 18 credits.
