Human-Animal Interaction PhD Track

Human-Animal Interaction PhD Track

The goal of the human-animal interaction (HAI) track within the PhD program is to train students in theory and cutting-edge research techniques related to the empirical assessment of human-animal relationship. Students in the program will work with faculty advisors on a range of topics, including human-wildlife interaction, the health effects of pet ownership, and the efficacy of animal-assisted interventions, situated within a One Health perspective. The program aims to train future HAI scholars who will conduct innovative research elucidating the mutually influential relationships between humans and animals. This track is connected to the M.S. in Animals and Public Policy program. Visit Center for Animals and Public Policy for more information about faculty and their research interests.
