Animal Science Technology. An Experimental Developmental Program. Volume II, Curriculum Course Outlines.
Brant, Herman G.
This volume, the second of a two part evaluation report, is devoted exclusively to the presentation of detailed course outlines representing an Animal Science Technology curriculum. Arranged in 6 terms of study (2 academic years), outlines are included on such topics as: (1) Introductory Animal Science, (2) General Microbiology, (3) Zoonoses, (4) Animal Reproduction, (5) Clinical Management, (6) Animal Parasitology, (7) Animal Nutrition, (8) Genetics, and (9) Technical Reporting. Each outline includes estimated instruction time, a lesson description, and reference materials. It should be noted that the establishment of the first year of this curriculum assumes a common core to be taken by all students during the first 3 terms of the program. The second year is characterized by a modified core approach, whereby a reduced number of required courses allow for the selection, by the students, of one of the two option areas; namely, the Laboratory Animal Option or the Veterinary Assisting Option. Volume I of this report, the description and evaluation of the program, is available as VT 013 804. (Author/JS)
