Introduction to Animal Welfare Science — ENVS 231 taught by Liv Baker

Animal Welfare Science (AWS) developed as a multidisciplinary field of research to address animal well-being. It draws upon information and methodology from a host of disciplines to address individual-level concerns of non-human animals. It incorporates components of veterinary medicine, neuroscience, animal behavior, and physiology. This course introduces students to the scientific assessment of animal welfare. Students should gain a basic understanding of the ethical and biological foundations of animal welfare research and knowledge of a variety of current animal-related issues pertinent to domesticated, research, zoo, and free-ranging animals.

A theoretical and practical course in teaching that utilizes movement and creativity, this course will center on dance education as a site for social relevance, justice, and action. Utilizing readings, discussion, writing, practice, and reflection, students will investigate theories of education, politics of body, and various methods for teaching through dance and movement. Prior dance training is not required. Students with an interest in dance, arts, education, or an interest in creative and bodily engagement in learning will find this course directly applicable. Concurrent enrollment in Dance Teaching Practicum, DANC447 (.5 credit) is required. If interested, contact Katja Kolcio, kkolcio@wesleyan.edu.
