Research, advocacy, and consumer concern have inspired great public interest in the quality of life of animals, as well as a public appeal for a greater understanding of what an animal experiences under the care of humans. Such interests extend across a variety of species including zoo, laboratory, farm and companion animals.
A growing number of employers, including research institutions, government agencies, food producers, animal protection agencies, and NGOs, seek individuals with the kind of training that will enable them to promote the welfare and quality of life of animals.
Our online graduate certificate program combines self-directed online activities with real-time, in-person sessions. Our faculty includes world leaders in animal welfare and behavior who have changed the way we think about our interactions with animals and the care they deserve.
This four-course, for-credit graduate Certificate Program in Animal Welfare Science and Animal Behavior is designed for individuals working with animals in research, industry, and the nonprofit sector, as well as for those who are interested in developing careers in animal health and welfare. Taught by nationally and internationally renowned Penn Vet faculty, it prepares to understand and assess animal welfare and behavior.
