The Animal Behavior course is designed to provide students with an appropriate understanding of how non-human animals interact with their environments. When students successfully complete this course, they should be able examine animal behavior in the context of proximate and ultimate causes. This starts with developing the ability to describe the forces that have shaped the evolutionary development of individual species and the immediate environment in which those species exist and will culminate with the ability to integrate these forces into a broader understanding of behavior of all animals, humans included.
This course is typically offered in Summer I as an online course.
