Admission Requirements

Students must be admitted to a Ph.D. program in the Department of Biology, the Department of Psychology, or the Program in Neural Science or other related departments or programs (e.g., Program in Medical Sciences, Anthropology). They must also apply to the Program in Animal Behavior.

Students should select an advisory committee made up of at least three members of the graduate faculty. For students whose home department or program is biology, at least one member of the advisory committee from the Department of Psychology or the Program in Neural Science is expected. For students whose home department or program is the Department of Psychology or the Program in Neural Science, at least one member of the advisory committee from biology is expected. At least two of the student's committee members must be members of the Program in Animal Behavior.

Courses

A500 Introduction to Animal Behavior Research (1 cr.) Introduces students to research opportunities in animal behavior. Local researchers will present their recent research efforts, emphasizing the integrative aspects of their work and its application to functional and mechanistic explanations of behavior.

A501 Seminar in the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior (2-3 cr.) Investigation of functional behavior of animals (e.g., migration, parental behavior, mate choice) using an interdisciplinary approach that attempts to integrate the perspectives of developmental psychology, ecology and evolutionary biology, neural science, and the science of learning and memory. Topic will vary. May be repeated for credit.

A502 Research and Professional Ethics in Bio-Behavioral Sciences (1 cr.) Readings and discussion dealing with general ethical issues in science, with a particular focus on animal behavior. Topics include treatment and protection of animals; the acquisition, analysis, and use of data; student-mentor and student-teacher relations; credit, authorship, and peer review.
