Animal Sciences

The master’s degree program Animal Sciences focuses on the production of animal source foods in Germany and abroad with a view to animal, resource and environmental protection. The program addresses questions of nutrition, breeding and production technology as well as disease prevention and the quality of animal source foods. Further important aspects of this degree program are animal welfare and animal health.

Building on the content of the University of Bonn’s Agricultural Sciences bachelor's degree program, students deepen their understanding in the areas of animal nutrition, animal breeding, animal husbandry and animal health. Moreover, students learn to conduct independent and innovative research, to independently apply methods, techniques and strategies as well as to refine them with regard to existing problems.

Possible lines of work:

Research and teaching in Germany or internationally (universities, institutes of technology, non-university research institutions), position of responsibility at research and development laboratories in the food and agricultural industry, management position in production, product development and technology of companies, position of responsibility at a technology company, corporate management (of specific divisions/sub-divisions), marketing, consulting, public administration, services companies, trade or industrial associations, media, German and international organizations

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
