MSc Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law at Winchester critically reflect upon contemporary uses of animals and provides the academic skills and expertise needed to protect animals and advance their welfare.

Programme Content

This course provides a strong grounding in animal welfare science, ethics and law. Students gain the necessary skills to develop a scientifically rigorous assessment of the welfare state of animals in a diverse variety of settings and master the main ethical theories concerning our relationships with other animals.
