The MS in Animals and Public Policy (MAPP) is an intensive, 12-to-16-month graduate degree program that focuses on human-animal relationships and their implications for policy and community action. While students enter the program with different interests, skills, philosophies, and aspirations, all share a passion for understanding human-animal relationships and promoting the status of animals in society.
As a MAPP student, you will have opportunities to meet and network with alumni and faculty contacts so you can begin to build your own network to help set you up for success post-graduation.
"The reason I chose the MAPP Program was it seemed so diverse in everything that it covered. I learned how to look at animal protection/humane protection in an economic, psychological and historic way."
"The Master's in Animals and Public Policy laid the foundation for me to be in the regulatory compliance field."
