    Programme Description

    Our domestic animals are of great importance for our society. Farm animals primarily supply us with food and clothing, whilst our sporting and companion animals bring us other benefits. Whatever we expect of our animals, it is important that they both function well and are in good health. We also have to consider the various needs of our society.

    Through advisory work, education, research and animal husbandry, animal scientists can improve the production and wellbeing of our animals. Within the international collaboration, animal science plays an increasing role when it comes to improving and developing animal husbandry practices. The program has a duration of 2 years and will prepare you for a number of careers, for instance research.

    Future Prospects

    The interest for animals and their interactions with man has led to the current job market being strong in animal science. As an animal scientist you can work in consultancy, evaluation, research or product development, but there are also exciting career opportunities in teaching, information, journalism and the developing world.
