Animal Behaviour - (15 Credits)

This module is designed to give students both a strong theoretical background and advanced research skills in animal behaviour. There are three phases to the module; observing animals, collecting data and analysing data with a significant part of the module delivered through research exercises with live animals on the farm, at the zoo and on the University College small animal unit. Theory sessions support an understanding of the motivation behind developmental and complex behaviour in a range of wild and domestic animal species to support the key concepts of animal welfare and conservation that is the focus of the MSc. A very popular module that we hope you will enjoy.
