Anthrozoology

The programme covers the study of human and animal interactions. Students study 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 course is suitable for applicants involved with the care of non-human animals in a professional capacity (e.g. 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 students to fit it in around their existing professional and personal commitments.
