Welcome to the Animal Biology Major at UC Davis!

Welcome to Animal Biology at UC Davis!

The Animal Biology (ABI) major offers students training and research experience in the biological and natural sciences as they apply to animals.

ABI students are encouraged to think beyond particular groups of animals in which they are interested and to consider science as a process and a way of advancing society. As you explore our website you will find that the major requirements provide students with the opportunity to develop research and scientific writing skills, demonstrate critical thinking, work closely with faculty, staff, researchers, grad students, and/or professors, and be creative in a scientific environment. Many of our students go on to pursue veterinary medicine, graduate research, teaching, working private and government agencies, and much more.
