FdSc Animal Behaviour and Psychology
Level 5 • Part-time • Cornwall College Newquay
This programme introduces you to the different ways in which zoologists and psychologists research and interpret animal behaviour.
Through study of the underpinning science you will learn about techniques used in the management of animal behaviour in a range of contexts and species, e.g. companion animals, working dogs, enrichment for captive zoo animals. You will focus on behaviour in the main vertebrate groups.
There will be a particular emphasis on consideration of the welfare of animals and the promotion of humane treatment of animals.
As an FdSc Animal Behaviour & Psychology graduate you will have developed skills which prepare you for employment in animal training, welfare assessment, animal husbandry and other related fields of work.
Work-related learning is embedded within the Personal & Employability Skills Development and Animal Behaviour in Practice modules. You will have the opportunity to experience the world of work, even if you are studying full-time.
What is more exciting or enigmatic than the life in our oceans? We still know so little about this alien world which makes up 98% of the living space on our planet, but with technology developing at such a pace more and more discoveries are being made. It is an exciting time to be involved in any aspect of marine science; a crucial one too, as our impact on the world’s oceans has never been greater.
Foundation degree students who wish to progress to an honours degree can apply for third year entry to our top-up programme. You will need to have studied an appropriate foundation degree programme. The BSc has been designed to develop your interest and hone your professional skills to equip you for work in a growing industry. Situated on the beautiful coast of North Cornwall we are perfectly located for fieldwork and we have a strong practical element running through the programme. You will get hands-on experience in using sampling and survey equipment, as well as planning and undertaking marine surveys: from plankton trawls, to underwater video mapping and offshore marine life surveys.
During your studies you will develop your understanding of marine animals; working from cellular processes up to whole organism and ecosystem levels. In Year 1 you will receive a firm grounding in aquatic ecology, marine and biological science as well as developing practical survey skills before moving on to more specialised modules, such as fish ecology and marine vertebrate biology and conservation in your second year. In your final year, you will choose from options such as GIS and marine environmental management, monitoring marine ecosystems and marine pollution and ecotoxicology as well as undertaking your own research for your honours project.
