About this course

The Animal Science and Management major brings together studies in animal nutrition, growth and development, behaviour and welfare, genetics and breeding, health, livestock science and reproduction, and biotechnology. These studies allow people to manage animals in a way that integrates animal welfare with modern and demanding production requirements. You can choose to specialise in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Livestock Production, or Animal Science.

This major will help you develop an understanding of the biology of domestic and captive animals, as well as their care, management and use as a resource for food, fibre, recreation and companionship. You will learn about the complex ethical and moral issues facing society concerning animal ownership, and will have the opportunity to focus on the systems management of a chosen species or classification of animals.
