Course Overview

Learn to understand and appreciate the biology of all animals that have a close relationship to humankind when you take the Animal Science course. Humanity has an ethical responsibility to conserve and protect the creatures that are closest to us and recognise the rights that they hold as living organisms. You will be taken on a journey of discovery with the contents of this tutorial and discover the links that animals have with people and the geosystem itself. By becoming familiar with animal science principles, you will attain new awareness of animal welfare practices and the nature of animal physiology. You will be taught aspects of biochemistry and microbiology, as well as being presented with the facts concerning the genetics and evolution of modern species. As you complete each online module, you will be enlightened about the lives and management of farm animals and the overall care that can be offered to wildlife and household pets. Please note that the Animal Science course provides valuable and appropriate information-based training for animal biology and care. However, it does not offer official qualifications for work as a veterinarian, farmer, or animal care specialist. Always check details and responsibilities before attempting to treat an animal.
