If you’ve ever wondered why
animals behave the way they do, now’s your chance to study them at Southeast
Community College. This fall, SCC will offer “Animal Behavior” BIO/PSYCH 2201
as a three-credit hour course on the Lincoln Campus.
“Students interested in
learning about animal behavior from a scientific perspective, and wanting to
learn more about the behavior of their own pets, would benefit from our Animal
Behavior course,” said Dr. K.L. Zupancic, SCC psychology instructor.
The course studies how and
why animals behave in response to their environments. It also will involve
hands-on opportunities for animal behavior research and community engagement
through science outreach. There will be a special focus on arthropod and
domestic animal behavior.
“I’m eager to
venture out as a class into Lincoln’s parks and research animal behavior
firsthand by working with our local arthropods (spiders included!) to learn
more about animal diversity, evolution and ecology,” added Dr. Tyler Corey, SCC
Prior to taking
this course, it is suggested students take BIOS1010 and/or BIOS1400 and/or
BIOS1410 and/or PSCYC1810.
