The Bachelor of Science in Animal Behavior includes courses from the different disciplines that study animal behavior, providing the interdisciplinary foundations students need to reflect on the consequences of different intellectual approaches to a single problem. The B.S. in Animal Behavior is particularly valuable for students interested in careers in animal biology and behavior (e.g. research and teaching, wildlife management and conservation, veterinary medicine, animal training, zoo management, etc.).
Students have opportunities to conduct their own independent research or gain hands-on experience in animal behavior through the CISAB internship program and/or supervised laboratory research in which they apply their newly-learned knowledge to real-world contexts such as zoos, museums, and wildlife rescue centers.
