About this course

Developed in response to continued public interest in animal behaviour and welfare, fundamental legislative changes affecting how animals are kept and employer demand for highly qualified individuals within a range of animal management settings, this programme is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of animal behaviour. It will ultimately equip them with the necessary knowledge to assess the welfare needs and devise appropriate management strategies for farm, laboratory, zoo and companion animals. The particular concerns of wildlife and conservation programmes are addressed against an underpinning consideration of the global and cultural differences in terms of what constitutes 'animal welfare'.
