PSYC 2040 - Animal Behavior


This course explores the behavior of non-human animals on multiple levels of analysis, including ontogenetic (the developmental origins of behavior), phylogenetic (the evolutionary origins of behavior), proximate (the physiology and neurophysiology of behavior), and functional (the fitness consequences of behavior). Students will gain experience observing animals and using the scientific method to answer questions about the behaviors they observe. Students will be encouraged to think critically about the scientific literature and will learn to communicate scientific results both to their fellow animal behaviorists and to the public.
Minimum Credits: 3
