Animal Welfare Science (AWS) developed as a multidisciplinary field of research to address animal well-being.

It incorporates components of veterinary medicine, neuroscience, animal behavior, and physiology. This course introduces students to the scientific assessment of animal welfare. Students should gain a basic understanding of the ethical and biological foundations of animal welfare research and knowledge of a variety of current animal-related issues pertinent to domesticated, research, zoo, and free-ranging animals.
