Masters degrees in Animal Science involve the advanced study of a host of issues relating to the treatment, care and nutrition of animals, as well as the diseases that affect them.
Related specialisms at postgraduate level include Animal Health, Veterinary Science and Agriculture Science. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant biological science-based subject. If you’re passionate about research, some institutions award degrees as Masters of Philosophy (MPhil) and Masters of Research (MRes), allowing you to undertake a significant research project during your studies.
Many postgraduate Animal Sciences courses take an interdisciplinary approach to the area, combining methodologies from branches of study like biology, immunology, physiology and genetics. You may also take part in collaborations with people in the agriculture industry, looking at the ways in which you can apply your expertise in a professional context.
Another possibility would be to assess the environmental effect of livestock practices, or to look at the relationship between animal behaviour and welfare.
There are lots of employment options open to Animal Sciences postgraduates, ranging from research positions in veterinary laboratories through to agricultural consultancy and animal breeding.
