PSY 4340 Humans and Other Animals (3 credits)

This course provides an examination of the various ways humans interact with other animals. Although the focus is psychological aspects of human-animal interaction, the field is multidisciplinary and thus students will learn about the topic from other perspectives. Topics include the human-animal bond and pet ownership; animal-assisted interventions; animal use, abuse, and neglect; and animals in research. Cultural factors are emphasized throughout the course, as well as the ways in which oppression of humans and oppression of other animals overlap or intersect. Prerequisite(s): Junior or senior status, or consent of instructor
