ANSC 3900

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course will provide students with an opportunity to select, critically evaluate, and discuss current scientific literature and to expand their understanding of the science of animal welfare. Students will meet once a week with the instructor for a journal club-style discussion. Papers will be selected by that week's student presenter (and approved by the instructor) from a provided list of current issues of several animal welfare journals. Group discussions will focus on the merits of the research presented, validity and relevance of the findings, and the significance of the work in the field. Two structured lectures will begin the course and will cover topics including: choosing a scientific article, evaluating study design, interpreting figures, basic statistics, and how to present in a journal club setting.
