Human and Animal Interrelationships is a turn-key course package that takes a science-based, multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the nature, diversity and functions of human-animal relationships that have developed over time, geographic region, and cultural contexts.
This interrelationship approach puts many present developments into fresh perspective, including issues and challenges in the human-animal relationship, the effectiveness of animal-assisted therapies, animal welfare and rights, animal experimentation, trophy hunting, wildlife management and conservation, and the meat production industry.
The course package includes lectures, readings, discussions, and goes beyond stagnant words on a printed page, by integrating videos to help students recall their own experiences. In addition, students engage in practice activities and earn bonus points as they make progress in each chapter.
The fusion of the in-class lectures, discussions, readings, and activities create a strong framework for understating human and animal interrelationships.
