Description Animal Sciences

Common part

Limited choice:

RO-0: If you did not follow such an introductory course during your previous education, this course is compulsory, in consultation with your study adviser.

RO-1 - RO-3: Choose 1 RO-cluster.
- If RO-1 is selected, choose in consultation with your study adviser 2 courses from RO-1A in relation to your thesis subject; for thesis subjects related to quantitative genetics or animal breeding ABG-31306 is compulsory, for thesis subjects related to molecular genetics ABG-30306 is compulsory.

Internship replacement (approval by the study adviser is required!):
All students may replace the internship by a second thesis (at any chair group) of at least 24 credits, except former HBO students: they must replace the internship by a second thesis of at least 24 credits.

For those students who wish to do one of the following professional tracks:
- Students who choose the Research track must replace the internship by a second thesis of at least 24 credits; the choice, however, is limited to theses (co)supervised by chair groups of Animal Sciences;
- Students who choose the Education track must replace the internship by a second thesis of at least 24 credits with the chair group Education and Learning Sciences (ELS) and, in consultation with ELS, at least two additional 6 credit courses;
- Students who choose the Communication and Policy track must replace the internship by a second thesis of at least 24 credits with the chair group Communication Philosophy and Technology (CPT) or Public Administration and Policy (PAP) and, in consultation with the chair group where the thesis is done, at least two additional 6 credit courses;
- Students who choose the Business and Management track must replace the internship by a second thesis of at least 24 credits with the chair group Business Economics (BEC), Business Management and Organisation (BMO) or Marketing and Consumer Behavior (MCB) and, in consultation with the chair group where the thesis is done, at least two additional 6 credit courses.
