¿Qué aprenderé?

Graduate studies in the Animal Physiology Program cover a broad range of physiological systems. Students may choose to major in general Animal Physiology, or to supplement their major with a formal specialization in various areas such as: reproductive physiology, muscle biology, and animal ethnology. Study in reproductive physiology concentrates on improving the reproductive performance of pigs, cattle, sheep, and horses. The area of muscle biology focuses on the fundamental properties of muscle proteins and their roles in developing muscles and yielding muscle products. Research conducted in the ethnology program aims to provide scientific answers to farm animal behavior and welfare in conventional and alternative production systems. Areas of interest for which formal specializations do not exist, may include neuroendocrinology, immunobiology, and prenatal development.

Area(s) of Specialization (will appear on all ISU transcripts after graduation): Ethology; Muscle Biology; Reproductive Physiology;

Learning Goals that students in this program are expected to meet include:

Demonstrate comprehensive understanding of scholarly literature in Animal Sciences and related disciplines.

Form testable hypotheses and articulate research objectives that, when met, will lead to significant contributions to Animal Sciences and related disciplines.

Conduct qualitative and/or quantitative research via appropriate acquisition, analysis, and reporting of data and information.

Interpret research results appropriately, integrating them into the existing knowledge in the discipline.

Clearly and accurately communicate research findings using written, oral, visual, and electronic means of communication.

Conduct scholarship, in teams or with independence, in ways that consistently demonstrate ethical practice and professionalism.
