As for different types of careers - the door is wide open.  Consider what it takes to raise an animal – pharmaceuticals for health, food, genetics, reproduction, day-to-day care...   In each of those areas, you need people to fill roles in animal care, research and development, quality control, sales, marketing, management, finance, government, communications, and more.  You can also integrate animal science with other areas – such as post-harvest food safety or product development or environmental concerns.

Between 2015 and 2020, we expect to see 57,900 average annual openings for graduates with bachelor’s or higher degrees in food, agriculture, renewable natural resources, or the environment. For details - read the full USDA report.
