Anthrozoology is the science of human-animal interactions. It includes the scientific areas of both biology and the social sciences. The aim of this course is to increase the scientific knowledge in concerning human and animal interactions, as well as awareness of the consequences of these interactions. The target group is all professionals who work with animals on a daily basis. In the course, students will discuss how attitudes affect handling of animals, and consequently the welfare of animals, as well as how working environments may be improved for both humans and animals.

The overall aim is to achieve better animal welfare and safer working environments. The course has its base in the evolutionary background of animals and humans. The basic behavioural needs of animals must be fulfilled by management and husbandry routines to not cause suffering. A profound knowledge of how human behaviour and actions affect animals is necessary as well as knowledge about how behaviour may be changed long term. In the course, students also practice generic skills such as reflection and critical thinking.

This is a full distance course where all parts are digital, with three weekend meetings in Zoom. The aim with the meetings is to exchange ideas, listen to each other's views, and to reflect together with peer students and teachers. The course content is made up of web-based lectures, videos, discussions, reflections, practical exercises and written projects.

Students have to attend two out of three meetings during the course. Prerequisite: Bachelor in biology, animal science, veterinary medicine, veterinary nursing, hippology or in agricultural science, including 30 ECTS in zoology.

Best wishes
