Animal Science - Program Outline


The Animal Science program offers three nested award courses at Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters levels, specifically designed to equip animal health professionals through election of a specialisation (stream) in animal genetics, nutrition or reproduction.

Students will normally take four units (50% of their degree) in research project. They will then take two core units specific to their specialisation and two elective units of coursework. Under certain circumstances, core units can be waived with the permission of the Academic Supervisor.

The Animal Science program is delivered primarily on-campus at either Camden or Camperdown campuses. There are some on-line units available as electives.
