Course Description

Animals in Society uses lectures, discussions and assignments to survey contemporary issues regarding animals and how those issues play out in public policy and community practices toward animals. This is done through a series of modules that examine the historical, social, ethical, political, legal, legislative and economic aspects of society?s relationship to recognized categories of animals. The first module of Animals & Society I comprises an introduction to ethics, law, science, social marketing, and policy-making; this year, the second module focuses on wildlife and wildlife policy.
