About this program

MSc in Animal Sciences

The Master of Science in Animal Sciences aims to prepare students to become leading professionals in modern agriculture and contribute newly-acquired skills and knowledge for the benefit of agriculture in their home countries. Students will learn the fundamentals of Animal Sciences based on the most recent scientific findings and understand the “science” behind animal sciences, animal physiology, farm animal production and the environmental impact of agricultural activity. The program also prepares students for participation in doctoral-level programs.

Following graduation, the majority of alumni return to their home countries, where many of them hold key positions in the area of governmental administration of animal production, management of farm animals, farm animal husbandry, and consultation and research in these fields in universities or private institutes. Several of our alumni have chosen to continue their studies towards a PhD degree in leading universities around the world.

The one-year program leads to a non-thesis Master of Science in Agriculture with a major in Animal Sciences. Qualified students may apply to the thesis track for a second year of studies after completing the first year of the program.
