The UBC Animal Welfare Program is made up of many dedicated students, staff and faculty. Program members including graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, program alumni, visiting researchers and faculty and associates are involved in a variety of research projects, teaching roles and study opportunities in a range of topics including dairy cattle, animals in science, wild animals, companion animals and animals in society.

Graduate Students

Graduate education is major component of the UBC Animal Welfare Program. Our students complete a M.Sc. or Ph.D. in Applied Animal Biology through UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems and conduct original research under the supervision of one of our faculty members.
