Department’s History

Department of Animal Physiology and behavior is one of the first department established of the Faculty of Animal Science -Vietnam National University of Agriculture (in 1957 with the name of Department of Animal Physiology).

At the moment, the staff of the department are teaching the basic subjects and some important specialized subjects in Animal Husbandry and Veterinarians training program. The basic subjects provide undergraduate students and master students with important background knowledge about the mechanism of organ systems in animals, through which learners have the basis to access specialized knowledge such as animal husbandry techniques or animal disease prevention and treatment. In addition, in order to meet the international integration requirement, the trend of developing safe and sustainable animal husbandry, our department has introduced related subjects such as Animal behavior and Welfare for undergraduate students, Quality Assessment of Livestock Products for postgraduate students.

    Currently, the department has 6 staff, five lecturers and one technician. One hundred percent of lecturers have PhD degree, including 2 Associate Professors and 3 PhDs.
