A Bachelor of Science, or BSc, is an undergraduate degree that can provide students with a solid career foundation in a variety of fields. Coursework is in-depth and usually takes about four years to complete.

Students interested in farming, animals and food studies may enjoy a career in the animal sciences field. What is a BSc in Animal Science? To obtain this degree, scholars may take courses in nutrition, farming, genetics and animal husbandry. Animal scientists learn about food chains and work to keep animal agriculture safe for consumers. Additionally, these scientists explore options for more efficient farming practices and improved pest control solutions.

The skills learned through an animal sciences degree can apply not only to the science field, but also to everyday life. As science is usually a collaborative effort, teamwork skills are likely to be improved. Additionally, students will likely become knowledgeable in farming techniques and food economics.

The cost of a bachelor’s degree can vary depending on the school and the number of courses taken per semester. It is important to research schools and program lengths when determining the cost of a degree.

Once awarded the BSc in Animal Science, students will likely have solid career prospects, as animal agriculture is an important component of the global economy. Graduates may look for positions in the agricultural, nutrition or biotechnology fields. Titles for positions may include food safety lead, livestock specialist or animal research specialist. In addition to working for agricultural organizations, students may also find employment with a zoo or animal study facility.

With today’s modern learning options and technology, a BSc degree can be completed in part-time segments to accommodate the busy lives of working adults. Some degrees can even be completed online.
