Description of Major
Birds play an increasingly important part in human economy and society. Domesticated birds provide food, feathers and
companionship; wild birds are significant players in nearly every terrestrial ecosystem. Avian science majors consider birds as both
economically and environmentally important organisms. Bird biology, behavior, productivity and management are all subjects avian
science majors study in detail. Graduates may work with food birds such as chickens; with birds kept as companions or in aviaries;
with game bird populations or with wild birds in any part of the world.
