Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the October issue of Animals & Society Institute’s Human-Animal Studies Report.

If you are a faculty member wanting more exposure for your Human-Animal Studies program, the Animals & Society Institute (ASI) would like to offer you to participate in populating its newly redesigned website pages, “Degrees and Programs in Human-Animal Studies.” Now in BETA but soon to go live, the resource is one of the most visited on ASI’s website. It features academic programs in various categories—such as undergraduate minor and majors, graduate programs, animal law programs, etc.—and each section is searchable.

Please check and see if your program is already up on the site and looks good. If so, you don’t need to do anything. If don’t see your program on our list or have additions or changes, please let ASI know by emailing To be included in the first wave of updates and additions please send them to us by Monday, November 6. When doing so please make sure to include the following information:

·      Name of university, organization, or other provider

·      Name of program, degree, certificate, etc.

·      Location of program: City, State/Province, Country

·      URL link to program webpage

For more information, including Open Access chapters, news, funding opportunities, and much more, view this month’s Report here.
