Animal Studies: Social Science and Humanities Perspectives
A graduate specialization in Animal Studies is designed for students to explore the historical and social dimensions of the human-animal relationship from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students participating in the specialization program:
- gain basic knowledge in the relationships between humans and other animals;
- develop an understanding of how humans and other animals are linked together in a vulnerable biosphere;
- examine the legal, philosophical, and historical perspectives on the human-animal relationship;
- apply issues of the human-animal relationship to their primary disciplines.
This specialization is administered by the College of Social Science. The Department of Sociology is the primary administrative unit.
