Course summary

Why do wolves hunt in packs while cats hunt alone? Why do birds sing? Why do some animals have multiple mates and others only one? If these questions interest you, read on!Animal Behaviour is an interdisciplinary degree and field of science that examines the interactions between behaviour and biology. An organism’s evolutionary history and current environmental conditions drive behaviour, and feedback from behavioural decisions in turn drives evolutionary processes. Our Animal Behaviour degree differs from our Zoology degree in that it includes courses from Psychology in the first two years; it also differs from Behavioural Biology in that it has a whole organism focus and less neuroscience.
