Animals in Society provides students with the knowledge and skills required to objectively address questions concerning how non-human animals exist within modern human societies. Students explore the historical context within which human-animal relationships evolved and consider social, cultural, economic and legal frameworks within which current relationships exist. They critically explore a range of existing and emerging animal roles within the context of social and environmental constraints. Throughout the course, students are provided with a broad overview of theories and methods of scientific inquiry as they apply to human-animal relationships, with an emphasis on developing practical solutions to challenging social issues.
