Now academic programmes on animal welfare at JNU

Students can now opt for courses in animal welfare sciences at the prestigious Jawahar Lal Nehru University from this academic session, with the varsity taking over the operations and academic activities of National Institute of Animal Welfare.



New Delh: Students can now opt for courses in animal welfare sciences at the prestigious Jawahar Lal Nehru University from this academic session, with the varsity taking over the operations and academic activities of National Institute of Animal Welfare.

"We have signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) for the transfer of operations and management of academic activities of the National Institute of Animal Welfare," a senior university official said.

The National Institute of Animal Welfare was earlier managed by the Environment Ministry.

The memorandum was signed on June 29 by JNU Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar and Joint Secretary, Environment Ministry Anil Sant.
The agreement allows JNU to venture into animal welfare with six 1-month certification courses and one 6-month diploma course, beginning this academic session, and also to start a master's course after one year.

"Courses based purely on various aspects of animal welfare will be conducted for the first time in the country. To recognise animals as sentient beings, capable of experiencing pain and suffering and to promote their welfare is an issue of importance and a part of the social development of nations worldwide," the official added. New Delh: Students can now opt for courses in animal welfare sciences at the prestigious Jawahar Lal Nehru University from this academic session, with the varsity taking over the operations and academic activities of National Institute of Animal Welfare.
