The bachelor's programme Animal Sciences stimulates you to study and explore the biological functioning of animals in our society – all types of domesticated animals and fisheries, in any function for human use and well-being: e.g., food production, companionship, sports, waste management, nature conservation or for educational and recreational purposes. How can these animals adapt to their environment and how can we create the best possible environment for them regarding sustainable and ethical factors on a worldwide scale? Answering these questions demands a fundamental understanding of the biology of domestic and captive animals, as well as knowledge about animal management and care in our society. Since 2018, the programme is taught fully in English.
