This biological science-based 2 year Diploma of Higher Education course combines both pure and applied sciences in the study of animals. Alongside practical animal management skills are topics relating to the underlying biological principles of biochemistry, genetics and animal growth, together with core subjects of behaviour and nutrition. This course is for those wishing to have a strong scientific understanding of animal biology and how it relates to animal health and disease, animal growth and their development. Option routes outlined below provide specialist teaching of pet behaviour and welfare, zoo and wildlife conservation, and farm livestock technology. If you are passionate about companion animals and looking for a course to learn about their behaviour and welfare then this is the option for you. Complementing the holistic approach of the Animal Management programme or the core scientific principles of the Animal Science programme, this course particularly prepares students for employment in the range of companion animal roles including pet behaviour councillors, pet nutritionists and pet animal welfare charities.
