New Bachelor of Animal Science at the University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania has recently announced a new Bachelor of Animal Science programme. This degree can lead you to opportunities working professionally in animal science, animal ecology/conservation biology or be used as a pathway into postgraduate veterinary degrees.

The three-year degree includes two years of study in the physical and biological science of animals, followed by advanced study of the major discipline areas of animal production systems and animal ecology in the third year.  This is the first animal science degree in Australia to offer both these subjects together.

Employment prospects for graduates of the Bachelor of Animal Science include positions in agribusiness, research, animal production, resource management, animal ecology and conservation, government agencies and education.

To find out more about this new course at the University of Tasmania, contact a Study Options advisor.  Visit the Animals and Land page for information about studying animal science degrees in Australia.
