About the courseThe Master’s Degree in Animal and Environmental science is designed to extend graduate student understanding of new conditions of biota, and the increasing degradation of our environment. New changes are daily happening in the present world, leading to new procedures. The continuing changes invite us to be more adaptive and proactive, so we can appropriately respond. How then do we situate the nexus between biota and environmental factors, vis a vis disparities between molecules and ecosystems? Moreover, how do we deal with matters of biodiversity conservation, ecosystem maintenance, and the much talked about food production? Answers will be provided for these questions as candidates expand their understanding of the environment, through the influential power of the environment, and how man has influenced it.
