¿Qué aprenderé?

This degree programme addresses the demand for ethical professionals in the animal care and management industry. From day one, you'll work with animals, and also in labs, learning and applying skills as you go, meaning you'll be work-ready for a career in animal health and welfare.

Animal management and welfare is a rapidly growing field of study and work. If you're passionate about animal management and welfare, this unique programme could be the next step you need to take in your career.

You'll develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of animal behaviour modification, health and welfare, handling and husbandry, conservation, and human/animal interactions.

Highlights

  • A holistic approach that combines theoretical knowledge with practical skills to evaluate the welfare, management and training needs of wild, exotic, and companion animals
  • Practical experience in simulated and real-world situations
  • Visits to various animal welfare organisations and voluntary groups; you may even be able to undertake part of your studies at one of their sites
  • A chance to complete a research project in an area of your own interest in order to develop the skills you'll need for a career in your chosen field
  • Relevant and current teaching: our lecturers keep up with industry trends through links with zoos in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch, the Department of Conservation, MPI Biosecurity and the SPCA
  • A teaching team of highly qualified and experienced animal behaviour experts, animal trainers, animal welfare scientists, and veterinarians

Double major

Study a double major and you'll get the best of both worlds, with a selection of animal- and environment-related courses. Studying for a double major is highly recommended.
