Master of Science in Anthrozoology
The Master of Science in Anthrozoology focuses on humanity’s relationship with other species. A major emphasis is on an examination of the relationships between people and their companion animals, but the scope of our program also includes animal use in science, industry, agriculture, and zoos.
In nearly every respect, the Canisius College MS in Anthrozoology is an online program. Nearly all of the coursework can be completed from any geographic location via a computer interface with the instructors and the college. The only exception is that most of the course work will also involve a single visit to the Canisius campus for an intensive, four-day long series of classroom meetings, seminars, and exercises. The timing of these in-person meetings will coincide for all Anthrozoology courses so full-time participation in three courses will entail only a single campus visit each semester.
For full-time students, this is a two-year program. The full-time student takes three courses per semester (nine credit hours) for the first three semesters. In the fourth semester, the student can complete a single nine-credit internship (or Independent Research project), or take two additional electives along with a single three-credit internship.
