Humane Society University
Humane Society University (HSU), a division of The Humane Society of the United States, is the first higher education institution in the country to be licensed to provide degree-granting undergraduate curriculum exclusively dedicated to animal protection studies. The District of Columbia Education and Licensure Committee has approved HSU's Bachelor of Science degrees and graduate certificate programs in Animal Studies, Animal Policy and Advocacy, and Humane Leadership.
For HSU undergraduate programs, applicants must have completed at least 60 college credits. Graduate certificate applicants must hold a bachelor's degree. Degree and certificate programs can be completed online or with a combination of online and onsite classes. Exciting course topics include Animal Behavior, Animal Minds and Animal Protection, Animals and Literature, Animals and Ethics, Animals and Public Policy, Organizational Leadership and Culture, and Finance for Managers.
In addition, HSU offers non-credit professional instruction on diverse topics -- everything from mastering animal sheltering basics and leadership to combating compassion fatigue and illegal animal fighting. Professional development courses are offered as in-person workshops throughout the country, and as user-friendly online courses that can fit any schedule.
