About Agricultural Zoology
Masters degrees in Agricultural Zoology provide advanced study and training in all agricultural aspects of animal biology, including breeding, behaviour, physiology, disease, development, and interactions with the environment.
Specialisms related to this subject include topics such as Animal Welfare and Conservation, Animal Nutrition and Applied Animal Biology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as Biology or Animal Sciences.
Masters degrees in Agricultural Zoology examine the significance of animal biology in agricultural activities, by exploring scientific solutions to everyday issues like food production and distribution for an increasing population.
You may focus your studies on different aspects of animal biology, for example breeding and genetics, and their effect on agricultural cultivation. You may even explore the means of manipulating these factors for the purpose of rearing livestock efficiently and sustainably.
Careers traditionally include roles in the agri-food industry, such as food production management and quality assurance. You would also be suited to consultancy within governing bodies and agencies.
A Masters in this field is also ideal preparation for further research at PhD level, perhaps exploring issues such the effect of livestock on the environment.
