You gain a good working knowledge of the programme’s central issues such as the biology of stress and its role in animal welfare, the effects of domestication on animal behaviour, the physiology of behaviour, and conservation biology. The programme is taught in collaboration with Kolmården Wildlife Park, one of the largest and most renowned zoos in Sweden. Several teaching sessions are held at the zoo where you acquire first-hand knowledge from experienced zoo staff.
Theory and methods
The programme provides a solid understanding of theory and methods of applied ethology and broadens your understanding of animal biology through courses such as:
- Applied Ethology
- Stress and Animal Welfare
- Behavioural Neurobiology
- Behaviour Genetics
- Zoo Biology
- Primate Ethology
- Conservation Biology
In addition to classroom lectures and seminars, you participate in hands-on projects involving studies of animals in captive environments. A key part of the programme is a one-year degree project in which you apply your theoretical and methodological knowledge.
After completing the programme, you will be well-acquainted with the theoretical background of animal behaviour and biology. You will have a deep understanding of animal welfare and conservation, and learn how to plan, implement and present a research project within the scientific field of the programme.
