Anyone at Melb Uni? I just got told about this course called "Animals in Society".

It sounds interesting:

"This course is designed to encourage students to begin to think about how and why animals are so integral to human society. We will investigate the human-animal relationships, where they originated, during domestication, and where they are now. We will examine in detail some key relationships between humans and animals, including animals as pets, in agriculture, as research subjects, in educational roles and as pests. We will discuss the changing attitudes of humans towards animals throughout time and talk about humankind's moral and ethical obligation to animal wellbeing. Within this discussion we will introduce animal welfare science and discuss some of the current animal welfare issues in livestock industries around the world. Finally, we will look to the future and where the relationship between humans and animals may be headed."

I heard a rumor about this subject (I dont think its an actual course you can get a degree/diploma in though) and im excited.
Im heading off to the Melb Uni open day this weekend and I'll make sure to check it out (Y). I know the uni has a range of animal-related course from veterinary sciences to animal behavioural/social study
