Master's Degree - Life & Earth Sciences

Animal Studies & Research via distance learning

 

This Master's Degree of animal research deals with all aspects of animal testing and the use of non-human animals in experiments that seek to control the variables that affect the behavior or biological system under study. On one hand, animal experiments produce such great benefits for humanity that it is morally acceptable to harm a few animals. On the other hand, the level of suffering and the number of animals involved are both so high that the benefits to humanity don't provide moral justification for animal research.
