194.343 Animal Welfare Science (15 credits)

This course explores the ways in which physiological function gives rise to mental experiences such as pain, breathlessness, thirst, nausea and fear in non-human animals and how the behaviour of an animal can be used to make inferences about its welfare state. These concepts will be applied to techniques used in the scientific study of animal welfare to enable students to construct robust strategies for animal welfare assessment.

Note(s): This course has been replaced by the new course 117.332 from 2021.
