About this course

The dual four-year program allows students to combine practical business skills with their interests in wildlife science. In the Wildlife Science component students will focus on animal biology, wildlife management and the emerging issues associated with human-wildlife interactions. In this degree students will develop a deep scientific knowledge of wildlife anatomy and physiology, captive breeding, reproduction, nutrition, health, husbandry, ecology, welfare and behaviour.

The agribusiness component of the program will prepare graduates for business management positions in industries which demand graduates who are consumer focused, commercially aware, innovative, internationally orientated and technically competent. They will learn about marketing, finance and managing people and technology along the agrifood value chain. Students will study business courses in accounting, economics, and market research in an agribusiness context.
