At Cook College, the scope of agriculture includes cutting-edge scientific research that is the basis for the new agriculture. Cook College students are learning how to breed new plant species that have pharmaceutical applications, how to use biotechnology to ensure that future generations will have enough to eat, and how to market agricultural products in the global economy. Graduates of agriculture-related majors work in many different fields, such as animal production and management, sales, research, or health care. Others pursue careers in research laboratories of major pharmaceutical and toxicology-related industries, many of which are located in New Jersey. The preveterinary medicine and research option within the animal science major prepares Cook College students to apply to veterinary colleges, enter medical and dental schools, or pursue graduate studies leading to advanced degrees.
