Subject outline

This unit of study represents one semester of a year-long honours program. The honours year will comprise a project related to animal science plus associated coursework. However, because there is no Department of Animal Science, students will be based in one of the participating departments. Overall assessment will be the same as for the existing honours program offered by that department (Department of Agricultural Sciences assessment outlined below). Each honours program requires approval by the potential supervisor and the relevant departmental honours co-ordinator. The Animal Science course adviser may facilitate this process.
