About Animal Behaviour at Faculty of Science and Engineering, Manchester Metropolitan University

From evolutionary development to environmental stimuli, animal behaviour is shaped by a range of factors. This masters course is your chance to explore them all - not only developing the theoretical principles of behaviour but also learning how to harness these principles to tackle real-world animal welfare and conservation issues.

It's an area that covers a diverse range of disciplines, from a strong numerical approach in the classroom to a practical approach in the lab and in the field. While the course is built around strong core units, it also offers the flexibility to explore specialist areas, like organismal genetics or GIS.

Above all, this is a course that offers the chance to study animal behaviour up close. As well as a field trip to Poland, Ecuador or Tanzania, your dissertation project could take you to Kenya, the Philippines or Mauritius (not to mention sites across the UK) for your research.

So, as well as expert analytical abilities and practical research techniques, you'll leave us with an in-depth understanding of animals physiology, and how experience and environment combine to create behaviour - everything you need to pursue a range of career paths, from animal management to education or further research.
