APBI 499: Undergraduate Thesis in Animal Welfare

This course provides the opportunity for students to take an active role in a research project on animal welfare, including involvement in experimental design, data collection and data analysis. Ideally students identify a research topic and begin data collection during the summer, and work on the data analysis and writing their thesis during the Fall and Spring semesters. The final thesis will be in the format of a scientific article, and, when appropriate, students may submit their work for publication.

Example of an Undergraduate Thesis: 
Erin Ryan, 2009: The Effect of Milk Allowance on Play Behaviour in Dairy Calves: A Preliminary Study
