PROGRAMS FOR YOUR GRADUATE CAREER
Breeding & Genetics
Graduate students in the group are required to enroll in both ANEQ792B (Livestock Genetics Seminar) and 792A (Animal Sciences Graduate Seminar) in each Fall and Spring semester during their program. All students are required to take ANEQ575 and ANEQ631, and PhD. students must complete ANEQ731 as part of their program in addition to other CSU and Departmental requirements. Courses are available to complement graduate studies in statistics, agricultural economics, computing, genomics and biotechnology, and other related disciplines. Also, as part of a USDA distance education grant, the CSU Livestock Genetics group contributes expertise and course instruction in a series of online modules covering various topics relevant to livestock genetics. Graduate students are also required to complete an ancillary project, leading to submission for publication once during their M.S. studies and twice during their Ph.D. studies.
A list of topics that are suitable for thesis/dissertation studies at M.S. and Ph.D. levels is maintained by the faculty. These topics encompass a wide range of issues that are timely and relevant to livestock genetics. Students who successfully complete a graduate degree in the livestock genetics program are highly employable, and the hundreds of former graduates from this program now have careers in all levels of academia, government, and industry.
