MASTER’S PROGRAMS

Animal & Nutritional Sciences

The master of science in animal and nutritional sciences in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design allows maximum flexibility in courses and research problems. Students my emphasize physiology, production, nutrition or food sciences. They may work with humans, beef and dairy cattle, sheep, swine, poultry, or laboratory animals. Research problems in farm animals form the basis for many studies, but a comparative approach is emphasized. For additional information, contact Dr. Robert Taylor at (304) 293-2000 or Bob.Taylor@mail.wvu.edu. (pdf version of MS program)

Reproductive Physiology
The emphasis of this program is to provide a high quality apprenticeship in research in reproductive biology. In the past, many of the doctoral graduates from this program have gone directly into academic positions or research roles in government or industry. The M.S. program provides the opportunity to become involved in research and scientific writing before commencing a doctoral program. Faculty members are located in the Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences, and the Departments of Biology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Physiology and Pharmacology. For more information contact the Chair of the Faculty of Reproductive Physiology, Dr. Keith Inskeep, (304) 293-1936; email: einskeep@wvu.edu.
