Course Description

The course is structured so that emphasis is placed on animals in terms of their numbers in captivity: domestic animals (billions), companion animals (millions), captive exotics (thousands) and others. Much of the teaching relates directly to domestic (farm) animals but concepts are applicable across all species in situations controlled by humans, and the course assessments will encourage further study of species that are of particular interest to you as an individual.
