Course Description

The need to feed a growing Australian and global population means food production systems must become more efficient to meet demand.

Learn how technology and sustainable practices are being used to meet this increasing demand, while still ensuring the production of wholesome and safe food products. With an in-depth focus on developments in animal management, disease control, improved welfare and new molecular technologies, you’ll get a comprehensive understanding of animal production systems in a range of industries.

You’ll also explore how new DNA technologies are transforming our traditional food and fibre production systems, and the ways that these advances are moving from research to industry practice.

You can combine this course with other majors to expand your career prospects even further. Adding a Crop and Pasture Science major will expand your knowledge in the fields of animal production and crops and pastures, creating a well-rounded agriculture degree.

If you’d like to study Animal Science as a pathway to apply to study Veterinary Science, we recommend studying a double major which combines this course with Animal Health.

9 reasons to study Animal Science

  • Learn on the only city-based university farm in Australia. Murdoch’s on-campus farm is an animal production property, meaning practical classes are held on campus.
  • You’ll get hands on experience in your first year of study with sheep, cattle, pigs and horses.
  • Complete a total of seven weeks industry experience throughout the course across three or more industries, so you’ll graduate confidence for the work place.
