Why do animals behave the way they do? In this course, we will examine how psychologists use interdisciplinary approaches to observe and research domestic, wild, and lab animals. This is a seminar-style course where we will discuss current topics in animal behavior and cognition, potentially including consciousness, social behaviors, spatial abilities, learning, tool-use, emotions, language, culture, sexuality, human-animal relationships, environment-animal relationships, and other student interests. The main focus of this course will be discussion-based to enable and critical thinking and maximize communication among. We will work as a team via seminar (group discussions) with a focus on articulating and communicating critical thinking/analysis skills.

To successfully participate in this program students need a computer and internet access.
