Graduation Requirements for the Major


Students matriculating fall 2015 or after and transfer students matriculating in 2016 and after must complete a goal-based Core Curriculum. The goal-based core is described here: http://sebs.rutgers.edu/core. Courses are certified for the Core Curriculum by a faculty committee. A current list of certified courses can be found here: http://sebs.rutgers.edu/core. Animal science major requirements are as described below.

For an up-to-date description of animal sciences major requirements, courses, and course sequences please refer to the program webpage at http://animalsciences.rutgers.edu/undergraduate.
