The Mammal Husbandry certificate is designed to enhance the Zoo Keeping AAS degree or introduce students to animal careers other than Zoo Keeping.

Additionally, students learn about mammalian biology and husbandry, and the captive care and management of mammals. Students can choose electives that focus on primates (lesser primates and great apes), wild cats, ungulates, elephants, and bats.

Upon completion of the Mammal Husbandry certificate program, students should be able to:

  • Discuss the environmental, political, economic, and sociological issues linked to loss of biodiversity on the planet
