The scientific study of animal behaviour and welfare furthers our understanding of why animals behave in the way that they do, and helps us learn how best to respond to the challenges that animals face when living in captive and wild environments.
Postgraduate research provides students with the opportunity to advance their knowledge and develop their practical and intellectual skills. Graduates of the Animal Behaviour and Welfare course at University of Lincoln may pursue careers in research and science-related roles, while others may choose to move on to research at doctoral level.
