Within the BSc program of the veterinary curriculum we offer students an introduction to the biology of what is meant by welfare and to our dynamic concept of welfare as related to the animal’s own capacity to adapt to environmental or other challenges. Within that framework we also teach the basics of practical welfare assessment. The master track will take this further and provide the knowledge and the skills actually to approach the management of animal welfare. As well as reviewing existing scientific knowledge, the course will also explore ethical norms and societal values, as well as legal frameworks affecting the assessment and management of welfare.|

Let op: Bij het masterprogramma Paard duurt de track twee weken korter dan bij de programma’s Landbouwhuisdieren en Gezelschapsdieren, daarom krijg je bij afronding 3 EC minder toegekend.
