Based on the study of social movements, public policy, and public administration, the programs in the Department of Animal Policy and Advocacy explore the correlates of social, political and institutional change in attitudes, policies, and practices related to animals. The courses in the department foster the development of analytical, strategic thinking, and communication skills. The program seeks to prepare students for careers in the multi-faceted fields of animal protection, public policy, and the law. The program specifically prepares students to work for animal protection organizations, to work in the policy arena as administrators and legislative staff, and to transition to increasing opportunities in law, education, and other venues that allow graduates to apply their knowledge of animals, advocacy, and public policy.
