The Master's degree in Ethology of Companion Animals was created in response to the great demand by veterinary clinics and the lack of official courses in this area. The duration of the course is 11 months. During the course students attend theory and practical classes. The objective of the programme is to allow students to achieve the necessary knowledge for any aspect related to animal behaviour and solve the main behavioural problems.


The objective of this programme is to train students in the field of veterinary clinical ethology. Clinical ethology involves resolving problems of behaviour which may be displayed by domestic animals. The resolution of these behavioural problems in dogs and cats is important for two main reasons:

- They are one of the main causes of euthanasia and abandonment of dogs and cats.

- Problems of aggression are important for public health.

Access requirements

Bachelor's degree in Veterinary Medicine, Biology, Psychology, Education Studies or Medicine.

Exceptionally, students from other specialisations may be admitted, subject to an assessment of their Curriculum Vitae and a personal interview.

Career opportunities

- Veterinary ethologist.

- Advisor on dog and cat behaviour problems in veterinary clinics, breeding centres, refuges, training centres, dog homes and centres that provide assisted therapy.
