As a student in the Department of Animal Sciences, you’ll have many opportunities to gain experience outside the traditional classroom, including study-abroad tours, internships, team competitions, student organizations and more.
Study-abroad opportunities, such as the four-week summer equine studies program in England, will enable you to learn about the physiology of the horse as an athlete and enjoy English riding lessons and day trips to English equestrian events.
Internships and undergraduate research programs will offer you real-world, hands-on experiences in corporate and laboratory settings both on and off campus.
Student clubs and organizations are an excellent way to make new friends and become a part of the Auburn University campus life. Auburn offers 300 student clubs, 23 of which are in the College of Agriculture.
Opportunities to join competitive teams (meat and livestock judging teams; NCAA women’s equestrian team—2006, 2011, and 2013 National Champs, 2008 & 2013 Hunt Seat National Champs) and attend student tours are excellent ways to engage with your College of Agriculture family while building new connections within the industry.
