What will I learn?

Gain practical business skills and strong agribusiness insight while pursuing your interests in wildlife science, placing you in high demand by employers, with this dual degree.

This 4-year dual degree will deepen your scientific knowledge of wild and captive animal management while developing your commercial and business acumen through one of Australia’s leading agribusiness programs.

The program will introduce you to the commercial world behind agriculture, and the complex and rapidly changing distribution channels linking producers with consumers.

You'll learn about marketing, finance and managing people and technologies in agriculture and animal-specific settings. You’ll graduate with commercial awareness, an international outlook and technical industry insight.

Under the wildlife science program, you'll focus on whole animal biology and the management of wild animals, including their ecology and conservation, biodiversity and issues associated with human-wildlife interactions.

You'll learn how to implement and evaluate management programs for captive and free-ranging wildlife. You’ll be taught by experts involved in the conservation and management of wildlife and exotic animals, and access UQ’s specialist animal research and veterinary facilities.

When you graduate, you'll be ready to enter the workforce in innovative management positions where your high-level technical skills in animal health and welfare, along with your business knowledge, will be highly sought-after by employers.
