Bachelor's Degree - Life & Earth Sciences

Livestock & Animal Science via distance learning

 

Innovative in content and focus, this Bachelor's Degree puts animal science in perspective by examining not only traditional topics (major species, nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior) but also by exploring the dynamic nature of livestock engineering, how it forms part of a larger industry, and how livestock becomes a key resource to the well being and sustainability of humans. It also discusses animal welfare and animal rights.
