Poultry Science
Georgia’s largest agricultural industry needs you – to study chickens.

Poultry Science is a major that studies Georgia’s largest agricultural industry. Chickens are everywhere in our daily food lives. From the chicken strips at Chick-Fil-A to McDonalds McNuggets to Zaxby’s House Zalad to eggs cooked in our own kitchens, poultry is a big source of food and income in Georgia. With a degree in Poultry Science, you’ll study birds, biology, business, chemistry, marketing, chicken nutrition and dozens of classes in between. Plus, in one class you’ll get to do surgery on a live chicken, and sew her back up safely again.
