This Master’s degree follows an evidence-based approach, which aims to develop students’ theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the management of problem behavior in companion animals. It is headed by a team of experts, including Europe’s first veterinary behavior professor, European and Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon's specialist Professor Daniel Mills.

Teaching is informed by research and practice, and students have the opportunity to gain experience through real cases in the School of Life Sciences’ veterinary behavior clinic. The curriculum is closely aligned with the research conducted in the School’s Animal Behaviour Cognition and Welfare Group. Students are encouraged to develop research skills and may have the opportunity to work alongside academics on high-profile projects, many of which are funded by research councils, charities, and commercial bodies.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
