Course summary

The programme will be of interest to students who enjoy the biological sciences and have an interest in pursuing a career in the animal management industry. There is a broad diversity in the career opportunities available that relate to animal behaviour and welfare and these can often involve roles that offer both practical and theoretical elements. The varied styles of teaching delivery within the programme are therefore ideal for creating graduates that can make the most of these career opportunities.Students will develop a range of practical biological science and practical animal skills in the first year whilst studying specific animal behaviour and welfare course materials. This establishment of fundamental skills is then developed further as students progress into year two and if they wish to proceed to a full Honours degree, into year three, where subjects taught cover a diverse range of relevant areas such as Behavioural Ecology and Psychopharmacology and Neuroscience.Degree StructureYear 1Work Based Learning 1 (30)Principles of Animal Behaviour (15)Concepts in Animal Welfare (15)Research Skills (15)Introduction to Animal Training (15)Concepts in Animal Science (15)Year 2Breeding Management and Genetics (15)Data Analysis (15)Applied Animal Welfare (15)Animal Cognition and Learning (15)Problem Behaviour Management and Training (15)Work Based Learning 2 (30)Optional Modules:Exotic Collection Management (15)Advanced Animal Husbandry, Health and Nutrition (15)
