While many animal science majors pursue advanced degrees, an animal scientist who holds a professional or doctorate degree only makes a median salary of $61,680, making grad school a steep investment with a limited reward. With a starting salary of $33,600 and a mid-career salary of 55,200, animal scientists tend to find themselves in a bind with only an 8.8 percent projected job growth rate over 10 years.
