The MA in Humane Education focuses on the intersectional issues of environmental ethics, animal protection, and human rights, and how bringing a “solutionary” lens to our educational efforts can empower changemaking in classrooms and communities. This 5-7 semester program can be completed fully online with an optional one-week, 3-credit summer residency (immersion course) held at the Institute for Humane Education in Surry, Maine. Students can begin in any semester and typically take 3-6 credits per term. The MA program is designed for non-classroom educators and advocates. Please note this MA degree does not lead to state licensure.
