About Animal Health and Welfare, MRes, MSc, PG Dip - at Nottingham Trent University (NTU)

Animal Health and Welfare relates the study of animal health to improving and enhancing welfare. There is an increased global awareness of the link between animal and human health and this suggests that graduates with skills in this area are well placed for a range of career destinations within the animal sector.

The course combines advanced research and academic skills with applied science skills for use within the animal sector. It will equip you 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.
