Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology

Explore genetics, physiology, behavior, welfare and nutrition. Obtain a broad overview of animal production systems and animal bio-science, and learn the science of breeding, feeding, care and management of agricultural animals. Expand your knowledge with electives, senior courses and undergraduate research projects.
