Graduate Studies by Coursework

The M.Sc. by coursework specializing in animal welfare is the first in North America to equip students to meet the needs of the various animal industries, by providing a solid foundation in animal welfare science and ethics, combined with practical training and experience that can be applied immediately upon graduation.

The program combines a core of graduate courses in animal welfare science with selected electives complementing students' area of interest. Students also complete a supervised major paper, which builds specialized knowledge and provides hands-on experience.
