    Programme Description

    The programme aims to provide students with an understanding of animal welfare that can be applied effectively in animal research, management, care, production, inspection, assessment and preparation of legislation.

    The Vet School has an impressive international reputation, which has been strengthened by its links with the Scottish Agricultural College. By bringing together research and education from these institutions, a solid platform is created for education and research in animal behaviour and welfare.

    Students completing this course will have:

    * an increased understanding and awareness of the application of scientific principles to the study of animal behaviour and welfare, using farm animal examples;
    * the ability to utilise effective and modern methods for describing and analysing scientific data;
    * the knowledge to apply a rigorous framework for assessing the welfare of animals in captivity and in the natural environment;
    * the skills (dependent on practical experience) to be able to offer advice on applied animal behaviour and animal welfare issues;
    * the capacity for considering philosophical debate relating to the use of animals by humans;
    * awareness of the global issues that have an impact upon animal welfare, including economics and cultures.
