Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law at Winchester critically reflects upon contemporary uses of animals, and provides the academic skills and expertise needed to protect animals and advance their welfare. Winchester is a world leader in terms of the values held and discussed, such as compassion and social justice, which are central to the ethos of this course. 

You consider animal rights and the ethics around using animals for food, sport, and scientific research. How should society reflect those rights and ethics in our law-making and public policies? We scrutinise the many forms of animal use in different settings, such as farming, transportation and slaughter, laboratories, homes, zoos and various other entertainment locales, and about free-ranging animals in natural environments. As you progress through the programme, you master the skills and knowledge involved in assessing and ensuring the welfare of animals using a range of data and sound scientific processes.

The course is different from other comparable programmes in part because of the range of animals covered, including wild, free-ranging animals, invertebrates, pest animals, and the welfare problems associated with them. You are encouraged to develop communication skills in a range of styles, including posters, blogs, and multimedia presentations, and to share ideas about animal welfare outside of the academic setting. 

Modules include Animals and Society, Animal Interests, Capacities and Ethical Considerations, Animal Behaviour and Psychological States, and a 15,000-word dissertation on your chosen topic. Classes are taught using the online virtual learning platform, in the form of core notes with additional readings, videos and lecture notes, making this course accessible to students anywhere in the world. 

Graduates work as animal behaviourists, within animal welfare and advocacy organisations, zoos, sanctuaries and other organisations requiring knowledge of animal management and welfare, with governmental departments working on animal issues, with agencies aiming to uphold welfare standards, and with commercial organisations seeking to introduce such standards to their agricultural suppliers.

Accreditation

For any veterinarians pursuing specialist qualifications in animal welfare, this programme is partly based on the theoretical syllabus required for the European and US qualifications.

Careers

Graduates may enter careers within animal advocacy, welfare and conservation organisations; zoos, sanctuaries and other organisations requiring knowledge of animal management and welfare; governmental departments working on animal issues; assurance, inspection and enforcement agencies; and commercial organisations seeking to implement and monitor the animal welfare standards of their agricultural suppliers.

Staff at Winchester have the expertise to supervise projects on a wide range of themes and approaches, including geoarchaeology, geomatics, zooarchaeology and the archaeology of religion, death and gender. If your interests lie in researching a particular archaeological period, such as the palaeolithic, classical Greece, the medieval period or the Caribbean, we will facilitate and support your studies. 

Complete core modules in Research Methods and Skills, Analysing and Presenting Archaeological Data and Personal Research Methodology, and choose a further two options from a huge range including The Archaeology of Medieval Religion and Belief, Climate Change and People, Central Southern England in the Roman Period, and Mediterranean Landscape Studies. 

There’s a module that takes you through the process of producing a research paper to the expected academic standard. In your paper, you apply the research skills you’ve developed to produce a 20,000- to 25,000-word dissertation on your chosen topic, supervised by a member of staff with relevant research interests.

Classical Studies at Winchester explores the civilisation of ancient Greece and Rome, and its legacy that has fundamentally shaped all later civilisations including that of today. It is a multidisciplinary course that melds History, Archaeology, Art, Drama, Literature and Philosophy.

Programme Content

Students may wish to pursue the three year BA (Hons) Classical Studies pathway or the four year MClass (Hons) Classical Studies pathway.

Study begins by establishing a framework of Classical history, both chronologically and geographically. It introduces Classical archaeology, art and architecture (for example temples, sculpture and inscriptions); Classical drama (comedy and tragedy); literature (epics and lyrics); and philosophy (Socrates and Plato). It explores the nature of each discipline and how each is best studied as the foundation for the rest of the degree. Classical languages are introduced in Year 2.

Students take a range of modules in Years 2, 3 and 4 such as Civilisation, Theme, Depth and Comparative Studies that further develop understanding of the Classical world.

Theme Studies explore continuity and change in the Roman household or depictions in film. Civilisation Studies explore one sub-period (for example, Fifth Century Athens) in the round, covering mythology and drama, democracy and war.

Students take two Depth Studies that establish a comprehensive knowledge of a particular period through primary and secondary sources. It is the Comparative Studies that particularly explore the Classical legacy in art and literature in subsequent centuries.

The two culminations of the degree are the dissertation in Year 3 and the summative paper paving the way for more advanced research in Year 4.

Creative and Critical Writing at Winchester offers you the opportunity to evaluate and improve your creative writing in a dynamic, supportive environment.

There are opportunities to meet agents, editors and published writers, and as your knowledge of the publishing industry expands, find out where your work fits within the market.

The structure of the programme enables you to focus on one or more genres (for example, fiction, creative non-fiction, scriptwriting or poetry) during the year. 

Throughout the course, you create and workshop your work in an encouraging group of peers, starting in the first semester with a module that focuses on contemporary fiction alongside a module about research and what this means for you as a writer. In the second semester you choose from options including Contemporary Non-Fiction, Contemporary Scriptwriting for Film and Television, Creativity Writing and Teaching and Advanced Contemporary Poetry. Through the Publishing Project you engage with writers, agents and editors through readings and workshops, exploring publishing opportunities for your own work. You can also volunteer at the Winchester Writers’ Festival on campus. 

The Independent Study Preparation module is designed to help you prepare for your Creative Writing dissertation – an independent project of your choice of up to 30,000 words which constitutes nearly half of the MA. This could be the first part of a novel, a collection of short stories, a portfolio of poetry or a script, completed with full tutor support. 

Graduates of the course frequently obtain publishing contracts, while others work in other aspects of publishing, or in teaching, media, the arts and business.
