Do you love trekking in the jungle and admiring the vast flora and fauna that surrounds Malaysia? Have you always been fascinated by animals, from the common chicken, cattle and cat, to the much rarer Rhinoceros Hornbill? Then the course of Animal Science might just be for you. Read on as we dig deeper into what it entails.

Animal Science (also Animal Bioscience) is described as "studying the biology of animals that are under the control of humankind". It also deals with animal health, animal behaviour and farm management. Historically, the degree was called animal husbandry (which has nothing to do with husbands) and the animals studied were livestock species, like cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, and horses. Today, courses available now look at a far broader area to include companion animals like dogs and cats and many exotic species. Degrees in Animal Science are offered at a number of colleges and universities.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Animal Science course?

Versatile

Perhaps you’ll have to deal with a horse. Maybe you’ll have to deal with a bird. Sometimes, you’ll deal with both on the same day! Either way, you have to be prepared for anything

Patient

Animals are living beings, and as such will react randomly and won’t easily follow instructions. You’ll have to be patient in ensuring that they follow the plan outlined for them.

Visionary

You’ll need to be able to look ahead and plan out different changes in ecosystem for different animals. More often than not, you’ll look 5 sometimes 10 years ahead when you decide what the best step to take is when trying to conserve a certain species.
