We rely on animals for so much—labour, entertainment, companionship. Animal science is essential for keeping the animals under our charge housed, fed, healthy and safe.

Animal scientists research new technologies and approaches to managing animal production and welfare, develop and run breeding programs, regulate animal feed and products, and work to decrease the environmental impact of agriculture.

Our Bachelor of Science (Animal Science) prepares you for success in the lab and the field. You will:

  • learn how to positively influence the productivity and welfare of livestock, as well as the health of pets, zoo animals and wildlife
  • build practical skills with 200 hours of professional work experience 
  • work with a variety of species, including livestock, horses, wildlife, companion animals and laboratory animals
  • join a close-knit, animal-focused community at our Roseworthy campus
  • study the fundamentals of animal physiology, as you explore areas like wildlife management, nutrition and on-farm management
  • draw on the University’s internationally recognised expertise in animal and veterinary sciences.
You could provide farmers with ways to improve the health and welfare of livestock. Perhaps you’ll get a job as a nutritionist developing diets for companion or production animals, or work in a wildlife park or zoo. You might research laboratory animal housing, or ways to detect or control diseases that affect our wildlife.
