Animal Health and Disease

    Overview

    Do you want to help animals? When your best friend gets hurt, will you be there to stitch Fido up? Will you rush to the stables for a foaling? Or will you work in the lab, tracking disease outbreaks and developing vaccines?

    If you’re looking to become a veterinarian, you can specialise in Veterinary Bioscience, a pathway to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine that will give you one year of advanced standing.

    Or you could learn about disease surveillance in animal populations through the Animal Disease Biotechnology specialisation and help prevent another swine or bird flu epidemic.

    Whatever you choose, start your journey with the Animal Health and Disease major, where you’ll learn about animals and their health, behaviour and handling.
