College of Agriculture and Life Sciences: Genetics - AGLS

As a genetics major you will explore the characteristics of living organisms to determine how they are passed from generation to generation. Understanding heredity is fundamental to all the biological sciences, particularly animal science as it relates to production and the study of disease. The department offers a broad range of courses in every aspect of genetics, from molecular genetics of microorganisms to population genetics. You may also consider minoring in genetics to complement a major in another field of science, mathematics, or computer science. A degree in genetics will prepare you for a career in research and development, teaching, biotechnology, health, and graduate or professional study in science, medicine, or veterinary medicine.
