In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
An MSc in Zoology/Animal Sciences provides you with the chance to study animals and their habitats. With an MSc in Zoology/Animal Sciences, you will become an expert on habitats as diverse as deserts, wetlands, high altitude fauna, and rainforests.
Even if you choose East Africa’s mythological, enchanting Tanzania; Senegal, land of teranga or South Africa, with its wide opportunities to soak in and serve, research in Africa will be overwhelming.

Master in Biotechnology and the Management of Animal & Zoonotic Diseases
The Institutional Research Theme (IRT) “Biotechnology and the Management of Animal and Zoonotic Diseases” was established at the University of Pretoria to build and expand on our current strength and research capacity in animal and zoonotic diseases in the Faculties of Health Sciences, Veterinary Science and Natural and Agricultural Sciences. As the only University with a Faculty of Veterinary Science, this presents a unique opportunity for further research growth in this field. Animal health has undergone an almost unprecedented increase in importance in the last century and is today inextricably linked to our local and global economy as well as societal issues such as public health, food and food security. Animal pathogens also affect humans and of the more than 1400 pathogens that affect humans as many as 60% are zoonotic, indicating that the disease can be transmitted from wild and domestic animal to humans....
