Animal Science and Food Science Minors; Department of Animal and Food Sciences

Whether you have a passion for animal or food science or simply want to learn about another field while at OSU, you can add it to your curriculum as a minor. Earning a minor not only expands your knowledge about a field of study, but it can make you stand out to potential employers.

We have students from all over the university minoring in animal or food science. Whether you are an agricultural communications major wanting to expand your knowledge about animal science or a chemical engineering major who wants to work in the food science industry; a minor is a great idea.
