Studying a double major in the Bachelor of Applied Science means that you get a greater range of course options, in both animal management and welfare, and biodiversity management.
Animal Management and Welfare
Animal management and welfare is a rapidly growing field of study and work. This unique programme will prepare you with the applied knowledge and skills you need to be successful in a wide range of emerging animal management and welfare careers.
This programme addresses the demand for ethical professionals in industries and organisations associated with the management and care of animals. You’ll develop an understanding of animal behaviour modification, health and welfare, handling and husbandry, conservation, and human/animal interactions.
You’ll explore how ecosystems function and support biological diversity, and how managers of biodiversity (including government agencies, non-statutory organisations, and voluntary bodies) are responding to increasing concern over the impact of human activities on the world.
Find out how society views and influences the natural environment, discover how social, cultural, and policy frameworks influence management decisions and develop your knowledge and skill with plant identification.
A holistic approach that combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience in simulated and real-world situations;
Visits to relevant environmental and/or animal-related organisations and voluntary groups; you may even be able to undertake part of your studies at one of their sites;
An opportunity to complete a research project in an area of your own interest in order to develop the skills you'll need for a career in your chosen field;
A teaching team of highly qualified and experienced animal behaviour experts, animal trainers, scientists, veterinarians, botanists, ornithologists, and ecologists;
In Biodiversity Management, we’ll help you develop your knowledge and confidence in plant identification; one of our biggest strengths, and an essential skill in the conservation industry.
