In graduate education (master's and doctorate), our Department is located under the Institute of Natural and Applied Sciences as the Department of Animal Science. Department of Animal Science consists of three sub units as Animal Breeding, Feeds and Animal Nutrition, and Biometrics and Genetics. Under the roof of the Institute of Natural and Applied Sciences, teaching and, research and development programs are given at the graduate level that can meet the requirements of the era. Under the motivation of these programs, our department is given MSc and PhD diplomas to students who have the knowledge needed by the livestock sector in our country and region. Graduate activities are carried out by 16 faculty members (11 professors, 3 associate professors and 2 Doctoral Lecturers) working in the department.
