Course summary

Study, with a biological approach, the fascinating scientific discipline of animal behaviour and welfare.

Course overview

On this course, you will explore the ways in which the biological sciences are applied to animal behaviour and welfare, in what is an exciting and rapidly changing field. An animal’s welfare can range from very poor to excellent at any point in its life, and it is important that we understand the biological needs of different types of animals.

Why study this course with us?

This course offers an integrated, scientific approach to the study of the theory and practice of animal behaviour and welfare, and the wider role of this discipline within the biological sciences. You will be taught at University Centre Reaseheath in the Foundation Year (if applicable) as well as in Year 1 (Level 4), and at the University of Chester’s Exton Park (Parkgate Road) site in Year 2 (Level 5) and Year 3 (Level 6). University Centre Reaseheath is a full member of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and houses a large range of animals.

Assessment

Assessments are designed to encourage both academic skills and skills valued in the workplace and include a combination of coursework and end-of-module examinations. Coursework includes (but is not limited to) essays, reports, data processing and oral presentations.

Job prospects

Previous graduates have gone on to do a range of job roles, including working as zookeepers, animal welfare officers, education officers, research assistants, or working with animal- or conservation-related charities. Transferable employability skills also equip our graduates for a wide range of graduate careers outside of the animal sector. Some graduates also go on to do postgraduate study, including at master’s and PhD level.
