Our postgraduate program in Animal Science will provide you with essential training in the rapidly developing fields of animal research and production technologies. The increasing globalisation of agriculture and growing emphasis on wildlife and animal health and conservation means that the demands on professionals in animal industries and organisations have changed. Applied and advanced training is necessary for industries and organisations to remain relevant and competitive.
Courses in Animal Science are offered at graduate certificate, graduate diploma and master's degree levels in four areas of specialisation: animal genetics, animal reproduction, animal nutrition and animal breeding management.

As the graduate diploma and master's degree each include a substantial component of supervised research, the program in Animal Science program can be your route from a science or agricultural background into a career in animal industries or Doctor of Philosophy research candidature.

The University of Sydney has an exceptional research tradition in the animal sciences, and the Sydney School of Veterinary Science is home to some of the world's leading scientists in animal genetics and reproduction.
