Master of Agricultural Science: Animal Production

Course Description


Animal production scientists enable farmers to meet the demand for animal food sources in a sustainable way by applying scientific, economic and social knowledge. The Master of Agricultural Science, with a specialisation in Animal Production, will equip you for a career in animal production based on 'clean, green and ethical' principles.

Course description, features and facilities

Australian agriculture is a key part of the world's food supply system. The challenges of a rapidly growing population, climate change, and the limitations of land and fresh water all impact on the ability of agriculture to meet the demand for food, fibre and fuel. To address this demand an understanding of the complex factors that shape agricultural systems is necessary.

UWA is well equipped for teaching and research in agricultural science, with a field station at Shenton Park and the University's Future Farm near Pingelly, which aims to be self-supporting, sustainable, carbon-neutral, clean, green and ethical – a best practice farm.

This course prepares students with the knowledge and skills they need for a future in the rapidly evolving field of agricultural science. There is a shortage of agricultural science graduates. Career opportunities range from the laboratory to the field, from the city to rural areas, as breeders, agronomist, farm managers, market development officers, journalists and bankers.

Graduates are employed as consultants, managers or researchers, by government agencies, universities, consulting firms, food industries, fertiliser companies, and international agencies.

Domestic students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place within this course.

International students may be eligible for scholarships:
