A Master of Science, abbreviated as MSc, is an advanced degree in some field pertaining to the sciences, in contrast to a Master of Arts. It is often a two-year commitment of study and may allow a student to advance in his or her career.

What is an MSc in Animal Science? This degree may explore the biology of animals that are specifically domesticated and controlled by humans. In the past, this field was often termed “animal husbandry.” Animal science tends to focus on livestock, domestic pets and the like, as opposed to wild or exotic animals. Generally, studying animal science combines a strong science curriculum with hands-on experience working with actual animals.

An MSc in Animal Science offers the opportunity to understand animals and humans’ relationships with them, providing a foundation for working with animals in the future. This degree also offers a theoretical and scientific understanding of the biology and behavior of domestic animals, allowing you to better interpret their needs and health issues.

The cost for obtaining an MSc in Animal Science can vary greatly depending on the institution a student chooses as well as the amount of time required to complete the particular degree. When considering various programs, a student should certainly research the cost of each.

A MSc in Animal Science may provide a variety of career options. Graduates may look forward to working in industries such as dairy farming or raising cattle or other livestock for meat. Some people with this degree may be employed as state or county inspectors, working with animals. Others choose to further their education and pursue a degree in animal medicine, becoming a veterinarian or a veterinary assistant.

There are many locations to pursue a MSc in Animals Science, both online and at traditional institutions. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Animal and plant breeding are driving the development of new livestock and crop varieties that can cope with the challenges of the changing environment and consumers' demand. Breeding research integrates areas such as quantitative and molecular genetics, biotechnology, and breeding informatics. It has close links to neighboring fields like animal and plant nutrition, animal health, and crop protection, but also marketing, economics, and ethics. Highly specialized experts in this field are required worldwide and have excellent career opportunities in both academia and industry. The International Master Program Integrated Plant and Animal Breeding provides a profoundly interdisciplinary approach to breeding research by bridging the gap between animal and plant breeding; covers all relevant disciplines of breeding research; and is supplemented by external lecturers from leading international breeding companies, research institutions, and national authorities. -
