In this course you’ll explore the latest issues, technology and opportunities in the field of animal health, with a strong focus on the health and well-being of domestic animals, production animals and wildlife.
You’ll develop the kind of teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills that are in high demand with employers and be taught by some of Australia’s leading animal health experts.
Murdoch University is the only city-based university in Australia with an animal production property. This means you’ll have easy access to animals for your practical sessions.
When you graduate, you can pursue a career in a wide range of fields, including agriculture, companion animal industries and wildlife management. You could work for the private sector, government agencies, non-government organisations, or research and development institutions.
If you’d like to study Animal Health as a pathway to apply to study Veterinary Science, we recommend studying a double major which includes Animal Health and Animal Science.
