Gain hands-on training with world-class researchers and become a leader of tomorrow. Animal and Rangeland Sciences are essential to the social and economic development of Oregon, the nation, and the world. Explore our degree options below to unlock a career that helps make tomorrow better.
Learn about production methods involved in the care and management of companion animals, livestock, and poultry. These facets address the production of meat, dairy, eggs, wool, and animal services such as companionship, work, and recreation.
Study the sustainable management of rangelands across a variety of biomes, from arid deserts to mesic grasslands to tropical savannahs. The program takes an interdisciplinary approach to provide advanced scientific knowledge regarding multiple ecological processes and social drivers influencing rangeland ecosystems around the globe.
Our graduate programs provide research opportunities ranging from applied ecology and management of rangelands to laboratory animals, beef cattle, and exotics—like llamas. Learn basic research from the systems and molecular level all the way to the management or applied level.
Through programs that advance OSU’s land-grant mission to serve the people of Oregon and beyond, to industry training and resources for K-12 teachers, the Department of Animal & Rangeland Sciences is engaged in our communities.
