Certificate in Animal Behaviour


The Certificate in Animal Behaviour provides students with enhanced, in-depth training in animal behaviour through a series of courses and a research project.

Using concepts from behavioural biology and psychology, students who enrol will develop a deep understanding of the major forces that shape animal behaviour.

The Certificate consists of three components

    a) Four core required courses
    b) 12 credit hours of courses chosen from certificate electives
    c) Research project (3 or 6 credit hours)

Please note
Students should enroll in the certificate program during their third or fourth year of studies. The certificate coordinator Simon Gadbois (simon.gadbois@dal.ca)
will enroll you in the program when you seek approval of your research topic.
