**Course Start Date: 17th September 2018** The BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Welfare degree employs a multidisciplinary and research-driven approach. You will be the opportunity to be taught by academics who are considered to be at the forefront of their respective fields. The course aims to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand animal behaviour and welfare, working, for example, with insects, reptiles, birds and mammals. The range of specialist facilities available for the study of animal behaviour and welfare currently includes aquatic and reptile facilities, an insectary and a bioacoustics laboratory. The scientific study of animal behaviour and welfare can further our understanding of why animals behave in the way that they do. It reveals how best to respond to the challenges that face animals living in captive and wild environments.
