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 10 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.
