Course Description:

The Orientation to Animal-Assisted Interventions professional development course provides an introduction to the field of human-animal interactions, including topics addressing the impact of the human-animal bond across lifespans, animal-assisted interventions (including animal-assisted activities and animal-assisted therapy), and considerations for the welfare of working animals.

This online, four-week course is intended for those interested in the Animals and Human Health (AHH) certificate program who have limited or no experience with animal-assisted interventions and/or for those who would like a general overview of the impact animals have on human health both psychologically and physiologically. The course can serve as a stand-alone overview or as an introduction to concepts and terminology central to the AHH certificate program. A variety of reading, writing, technology- and community-based assignments will serve as the basis of learning.

Enrollment is capped at 15 students per course.

The Orientation to Animal-Assisted Interventions course fee is $500.
