A postgraduate qualification representing mastery of your chosen field, a master’s degree is awarded to advanced students. While typically related to an objective science, a modern Master of Science can cover a wide variety of subjects.

What is an MSc in Animal Care and Welfare? A multi-disciplinary field, animal care and welfare covers many subjects related to the feeding, housing, maintenance, and handling of animals. It is a more focused field that has branched off from general animal science. Programs typically offer classes such as animal migration, molecular ecology, and disease resistance. Your institution might also have specializations animal nutrition, animal husbandry engineering, and animal conservation.

Animal care and welfare allows you to build strong observation, critical thinking, and research skills. This not only helps in related careers but in any job where finding the latest information is necessary. Most programs also insist on learning field protocols for studying and caring for animals.

Any financial concerns you may have are best addressed to the school of your choice. While it is impossible to give a definite cost, you might qualify for scholarships, deferments, or loans depending on your institution and situation. Online programs are also typically less expensive than studying on location.

The careers available to you with this degree are typically public sector and academic work. Animal science institutions need animal research technicians to carry out studies on domestic and wild animals. There are also generally livestock companies, zoos, and fisheries looking for animal care specialists. Graduates have also found work with government conservation efforts as animal welfare planners and animal care analysts.

You can typically find universities offering degrees in animal care and welfare all over the globe. If online study is your best option, you can generally find a program that can accommodate you.
