Claudia Ingham brings a systems approach to her courses in the Animal Sciences and Rangeland Ecology and Management programs.

Her teaching in the Animal Sciences includes a Writing Intensive Curriculum (WIC) course, ANS 420 Ethical Issues in Animal Sciences, which examines the uses of animals in agriculture, sport and companionship.  As part of the Baccalaureate Core, she teaches ANS 315 Contentious Social Issues in Animal Agriculture. Dr. Ingham also supervises undergraduate interns, in ANS 410, as they expand their knowledge and skills in the management of small ruminants on farms throughout the Willamette Valley.

Dr Ingham’s Rangeland Ecology courses include RNG 341, a principles course, RNG 442/542 Rangeland Animal Relations and RNG 470 Pastoral Systems of the World. RNG 470 is part of OSU’s Global Learning Initiative.

Her field work and publications are related to pasture improvement and invasive plant management with targeted grazing.

In 2013, Dr. Ingham founded the OSU Goat Club whose two-fold mission includes education about management and multiple uses of goats and support of the research herd.
