Anthrozoology, the study of human-animal interactions, is a growing, interdisciplinary field. It covers a wide range of research topics, such as attitudes toward animals, the “human-animal” divide, animal behaviors/cognitions/abilities, wild-animal management/conservation, the roles/uses of animals within cultural contexts, and more. This Integrated Pathway includes courses from the Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences, and includes co-curricular opportunities in a variety of fields and organizations.
