About Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Harper Adams University

Do you long to find out why animals behave the way they do and what this can tell us about their welfare? Do you care passionately about the welfare of animals but realise that applying scientific principles is likely to achieve better results than responding in a purely emotional way? Then this course is for you.

This degree enables those interested in the behaviour and welfare of companion and farm animals to study at degree level without covering the broader animal health sciences in detail. You will examine animal biology as it relates to the behaviour and welfare of animals, and have the opportunity to study ecology in relation to animal habitats.

Companion (pet) animals and farm livestock are given equal weighting. There are also opportunities to choose modules which relate to wildlife and horses. This allows you to specialise or gives you the flexibility to study over a wide area. All main groups of farm animals are represented on our farm and the Companion Animal House has a range of exotic and companion animals.

Students carry out an animal-based investigational project in their final year, looking at an aspect of animal behaviour or welfare.
