Top 8 Masters of Science in Veterinary Medicine 2019

Earning a Master of Science can be a great way for students to gain extensive knowledge within the field of science. Many students seek a master’s degree to have more lucrative career options or to prepare for further education in a doctoral program.

What is an MSc in Veterinary Medicine? Veterinary medicine is the study of medical care for nonhuman animals, including the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injury. Most programs are designed to cover all animal species, although some programs offer species specialization for more exotic animals or animals from a unique environment. Many include general courses in science such as anatomy, bacteriology and biology. Other courses may explore pharmacology, wildlife conservation medicine, prevention medicine and animal welfare ethics.

The skills and traits a student can learn while earning a master’s degree in veterinary medicine are often sought after by employers and professionals from various industries. The ability to pay attention to detail, communicate strongly and solve problems may all be useful in different careers.

There are numerous factors that can affect the overall cost of earning a master’s degree in veterinary medicine. The type of school, length of the degree program and location can all influence the tuition. For the most current tuition and enrollment information, students are encouraged to carefully research potential schools.

A graduate with an MSc in Veterinary Medicine is often considered more hirable to an employer than a student with only an undergraduate degree. With more formal education and knowledge, graduates in this field have gone onto pursue jobs as clinical veterinarians, paraveterinarians or specialized experts in animal dentistry or physiotherapy. It is possible to pursue a career as a clinic or hospital director, wildlife veterinarian or animal welfare expert.

Many students choose to study internationally while earning a master’s degree, though you may find local study options from one of the many graduate programs around the world. Some programs can include international trips or online options. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

MSc Wild Animal Health

This world-class specialist Masters Course (with exit points at Certificate and Diploma) has produced over 190 graduates since its inception in 1994. It provides qualified veterinarians with a depth of knowledge of the management of wild animals and epidemiology, treatment and control of the disease.

Over the last 30 years, interventions, for reasons of health, welfare and the conservation, of free-living wild animals have been undertaken with increasing frequency. Specialist veterinary expertise is required in order to assess and control diseases in wildlife.

Emerging infectious diseases are also recognized as a serious hazard both for wild animals and for the domestic animal and human populations that interact with these species. In addition, a large number of wild animal species are kept in captivity; in zoos and in laboratories, which has led to an increased demand for specialist skills and knowledge.... [-]

Programme description

In the veterinary management of animals, anaesthesia (rendering animals unconscious to permit procedures) and analgesia (reducing the pain an animal is suffering) have vital importance in improving animal welfare, as well as permitting the ongoing developments in medical and surgical advances.

Knowledge and advances in anaesthesia over the last 20 years have been considerable. We can use techniques to block sensation locally or over a region of the body, not just total unconsciousness. We have an array of drugs and methods of drug administration available to us in our fight against pain. Anaesthesia has always carried risks, and we have an increasing availability of monitoring equipment to help us monitor the physiological function of the body during anaesthesia with the aim of reducing morbidity and mortality in our animals....

Programme description

Conservation Medicine is an established field that continues to evolve as we develop our ability to study the complex relationships and interactions between animal health, human health and ecosystem health. It emerged in the 1990s as a response to the need for a more holistic and interdisciplinary approach to the conservation of biodiversity. In particular, the importance of health in many conservation issues was widely recognised. With its foundation in the principles of conservation biology, Conservation Medicine incorporates contributions from the health sciences, ecology and the social sciences. It may be regarded as the application of One Health to the conservation of biodiversity.... [-]

Programme description

Livestock is vital to the lives of millions of people, but endemic and epidemic diseases that affect livestock limit productivity and exacerbate poverty.

The diseases that can be transmitted between animals and people also threaten the health of livestock keepers, their families and their communities. In many developing regions farmers and animal health workers are often ill-equipped to deal with this risk.

This programme draws together expertise from across the University to deliver first-class teaching and research to tackle these issues.

Building on a solid foundation of biological, immunological, pathological and epidemiological principles, this online MSc will equip you with the skills needed to identify, control and manage animal diseases and the expertise to tackle the international animal health challenges of the 21st Century....
