The graduate program in Animal Science at the Federal University of Pará is characterized by presenting a set of disciplines that students pass a theoretical and practical basis, enabling the same to apply the knowledge gained in the regional livestock feed. Directing the research lines of the course to nutrition, biotechnology, pastureland, conservation of genetic resources, breeding, animal, cattle, water buffalo breeding, wildlife, aquatic ecology and aquaculture. Within this context, the objective of the program is to qualify professionals involved with livestock production, especially veterinarians, agronomists, zootecnistas, oceanographers, biologists and related areas, in order to meet the demand of teachers and/or researchers of the universities, municipal institutions, State, federal and private initiative that are aware of the need of the development of rational production methods, considering the environmental characteristics of the Amazon.
The graduate program in Animal Science was structured multidisciplinary and comprehensive, allowing you to gather professionals (teachers and students) from different institutions, such as the Federal University of Pará (UFPA), Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA), the Universidade Federal Rural da Amazônia (UFRA) and the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Institute (ISDM), that have common objectives of livestock production and the sustainable development of human communities in the Amazon. In the last triennial review of CAPES, for the period of 2007-2009, the programme held four concept. This was a result of the efforts of teachers and students, and the scientific maturation of the program over the past few years. The program initiated the masters level in 1999 by the CAPES/MEC, with the approval of his doctoral proposal by the Agency in 2008, beginning the first class in 2009, which will certainly contribute to the formation of regional critical mass.
