Masters degrees in Animal Physiology explore the different systems and processes at work in the animal body, such as respiration, circulation and reproduction.
Typically an MSc, some institutions may also offer a Master in Research (MRes), giving you the chance to undertake a significant research project during your studies. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant biological science, while related postgraduate specialisms include Animal Anatomy and Animal Pathology.
A Masters in Animal Physiology covers a broad area of study, often giving you the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of interest. You’ll usually examine several different kinds of animal systems – muscular, respiratory, cardiovascular and reproductive, for example – along with processes such as digestion and excretion.
You could explore these organic networks and processes from systemic, molecular and cellular perspectives, depending on your research interests. You might also choose to focus on a particular branch of the animal kingdom.
Career prospects in Veterinary Physiology are varied, and range from academic positions in research institutes and animal welfare organisations through to becoming an independent animal health consultant.
