5 Animal Studies Courses at US Colleges (slideshow)

Mother and child

I’m teaching an archaeology course at my college this semester and will be showing my students this photo I took last March while visiting the archaeological museum in Dion in northern Greece. The photo shows a grave stele (grave marker) for a child who died. The child’s grieving mother is depicted holding onto her child who, as he slips away, feeds a last piece of grain to his rooster. In remembering their child, his parents made sure to include his beloved pet: The bond between humans and animals has long existed and long been thought important enough to note and preserve.

I think that children should be taught how to treat animals from their first steps. If parents did this, they should know about it from teachers at school, kindergartens will be better. Four-footed animals are our brothers, they cannot stand up for their selves without our help. Everyone should bare it in mind. I think that every student should prepare the essay or any paper work about it, written on his own but not with the help of professional essays writing company. Everyone can order it online, even the dumb one. But it should state your own opinion not anyone else's.

Many students adopt dogs and cats during a semester, only to abandon them once they go home for the holidays or the summer at many colleges.. From kindergarden children need to be taught at school to treat animals with love and kindness and not to harm or murder them..
