Bachelor in Animal Science
The educational goals of the Animal Science study programme are methodologically based on the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning (EQF). The Framework defines the requirements for learning outcomes for knowledge, skills, responsibility and independence.
For level 6, which also includes study programmes of the 1st level, practical and methodological knowledge from a key area of the field is assumed. This knowledge serves as a basis for future practice, research or artistic creation. For level 6, the following are defined as cognitive skills – to propose solutions to methodological, professional, artistic or practical problems and to use general and professional knowledge when solving specific professional problems. Using his practical skills, the graduate is able to propose solutions to methodological, professional, artistic or practical problems and creatively use methods, tools, devices and materials provided.
The graduate of a study programme under the level 6 is able to solve specific problems in a changing environment independently, plan his own education, be responsible for his own decision-making, present his own opinions, employ creative and flexible thinking. Profile of a graduate of the study programme Animal Science - the graduate of the study programme Animal Science acquires knowledge about the biological laws of nature in relation to veterinary medicine, gets to know the issue of living matter in broader contexts with regard to the ecosystem and their mutual interaction. The goal of the study is to master biochemical processes, the physiology of organs and systems of microorganisms and macroorganisms (while paying attention to differences in individual animal species).
The graduate has a broad knowledge of the structure and physiology of domestic animals, understands the basic principles of pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of common diseases of domestic animals, research and innovation in the field of animal science, has knowledge of historical development, traditions and the social importance of animals. Graduates of the Animal Science study programme could seek employment especially in the field of animal husbandry and veterinary medicine, and can built on their knowledge about the care, health and well-being of domestic animals. After obtaining a bachelor's degree, graduates of the joint bachelor's study programme could also seek employment in the private veterinary sphere, in the field of food safety, or in the consulting, research and teaching field or seek further education (either MA or Phd) in the field of biology and aquaculture.
