MA Anthrozoology

Course Description

The inter-disciplinary study of human & animal interactions.

The MA in Anthrozoology will be of interest to anyone who would like to investigate the many and varied ways in which humans perceive, engage, compete and co-exist with non-human animals in a range of cultural contexts.

The Distance-Learning MA Anthrozoology is especially relevant in terms of Continual Professional Development for individuals who are involved with the care of non-human animals in a professional capacity (eg, vets, veterinary nurses/technicians, animal trainers, dog wardens, zoo keepers, conservationists, charity workers etc.), as well as for students who have completed social science undergraduate degrees or who have a science background and would like to expand their research interests into the social sciences. The distance learning format is sufficiently flexible to enable you to fit it in around your existing professional and personal commitments.

The MA has won a Humane Society of the United States Distinguished Course Award and the Programme Director is the winner of the Association of Social Anthropologists' Award for Excellence 2011 and has recently published a core textbook on Anthrozoology.

(Student Profile)

Amanda Newell

I'm two years into the MA Anthrozoology and can honestly say it's been life changing in very unexpected ways. I began it for personal interest and to expand my research skills; I've ended up hoping for a complete career change with a focus I wouldn't have even dreamt of two years ago. The freedom to explore personal interests for the assessments is a very welcome educational experience being both challenging and liberating. The course has been engaging, fun, challenging, educational and inspirational.
