Field of Study

Equine Science

Master of Animal Science

As an Equine Science graduate you'll have an advanced understanding of the application of scientific principles to the study of equine science.

You'll have the ability to apply this knowledge in a practical context. The completion of a research project will provide you with skills in the use of effective and modern methods for describing and analysing scientific data, and enhance your ability to interpret and communicate scientific results and information. You'll gain sufficient understanding of equine science and will be required to undertake independent research as part of the program. This will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills to undertake further study in a research Masters or PhD if you wish. Graduates will have the skills required for employment in a diverse range of areas of the global equine industry.
