Overview

The Zoology major at Oregon State University core provides a solid foundation in the biological sciences while electives allow students to cater course work to meet specific interests in animal biology. Undergraduate research, internship, teaching and study abroad experience are strongly recommended, and credits can be integrated with major requirements.

Zoology majors enter such varied fields as animal care and husbandry, curatorial and museum management, laboratory animal research, field biology and conservation, and environmental management and policy. The Zoology major is not suitable for pre-veterinary medicine students as it does not include the required prerequisite course work (see the option in Pre-Veterinary Medicine in the Biology major).
