About Animal Health
Masters degrees in Animal Health equip postgraduates with the skills to study diseases in animals, aiming to diagnose and cure disorders. Some programmes allow you to specialise in areas such as Animal Welfare, Animal Biology or Livestock Health.
Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate qualification in a relevant biological science like Veterinary Medicine or Biology.
Masters in Animal Health tackle a broad range of global and environmental issues. For example, you might focus on vaccinology and stopping the spread of infectious disease, or study how the animal body responds to infection. You could also look at the implications of industrial farming and what can be done to improve livestock health.
Employment opportunities are notably varied, depending largely on which specialisms you pursue during the course. You might focus on the global aspects of animal health, finding work with an international non-governmental organisation (NGO). Or, you could work for an animal consultancy, a veterinary company or an animal welfare organisation.
