Coordinate Academic Opportunities
Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University
Lyman Briggs College is an undergraduate, residential college at MSU. Students who desire to enter a health profession or a career in basic science may pursue a coordinate program between Lyman Briggs College and Animal Science. Note that Lyman Briggs is the actual college with a major in ANS. Also, for pre-professional students this is a different path with no competitive advantage for acceptance into professional school such as medicine or veterinary medicine. For more
Midwest Poultry Consortium
Students who are especially interested in poultry should consider the Midwest Poultry Consortium Center of Excellence (COE) offered in Madison, WI. Over two summers, students complete a maximum of six courses and all credits transfer to MSU to meet graduation requirements. Some courses may be used to fulfill requirements in Animal Science. Poultry experts from across the United States teach the courses. Internship opportunities are highly likely. This program has limited enrollment and is competitive to enter, but is supported with generous scholarships for tuition. Students who do not receive a scholarship from Midwest Poultry Consortium may enroll in classes and attend when they pay their own in-state tuition.
