Animal Health and Welfare

This course aims to develop an appreciation of the theoretical and practical application of health and welfare knowledge in a wide range of contexts. These include the use of animals in global society, agricultural production and welfare implications, companion animal biology, and more generic roles and uses of animals in society. The course combines advanced research and academic skills with applied science skills for use within the animal sector. It will equip students with theoretical knowledge in practical situations where an in-depth understanding of animal health and welfare might be of benefit, for example in animal production, utilisation of animals for educational/therapeutic purposes, conservation efforts, and the role/value of animals in society more generally. The course will cover the scientific theory and practice relating to animal health and welfare. It will also critically evaluate and assess the biological and social basis of the interactions, with the aim of improving our understanding and overall quality of specific human-animal interactions.
