About the course

The science of animal behaviour is a rapidly evolving discipline with much practical application. Welfare issues are a key concern for animal production, zoos and wildlife centres, the pet trade and veterinary sector, and are the subject of much regulation. Understanding animal behaviour underpins our approach to the welfare of wild, domestic and captive animals.

This Masters programme will teach you key practical skills in the study of animal behaviour in order to meet a demand for personnel skilled in rigorous methods of behavioural assessment. This programme focuses on sampling procedures and skills, and the analysis, interpretation and reporting of behavioural data.
