Master Programme in Animal Science Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences



Course info


Our domestic animals are of great importance to our society. Farm animals primarily supply us with food and clothing, while our sporting and companion animals bring us other benefits.

Whatever we expect of our animals, it is important that they both function well and are in good health. We also have to consider the various needs of our society.

Through research, education and advisory work, animal scientists can improve the production and wellbeing of our animals. Animal science plays an increasing role internationally when it comes to improving and developing animal husbandry practices. The programme has a duration of 2 years and will prepare you for a number of careers.


The interest in animals and their interactions with man and society has led to a strong job market for animal scientists. Your education will give you a degree of Master of Science with a major in Animal Science. As an animal scientist you can work nationally or internationally with research or product development, agricultural/animal advisory services and evaluation, but there are also exciting career opportunities in teaching, information and journalism.
