"The Animals and Public Policy program through Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is a phenomenal choice for students wishing to learn more about the legislation impacting non-human animals in the United States and worldwide. The curriculum broadly covers wild, farm, and companion animal policy, and provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in these areas by means of internships and research projects. Courses are taught by staff from the veterinary school, with an abundance of guest speakers from organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Humane Society of the United States. While all students are required to take several core courses, such as qualitative research and quantitative methods, multiple elective courses are also available which allow for pursuit of individual interests. I would highly recommend this graduate program to anyone interested in gaining an enhanced perspective on animals and the roles they play in human society; for being such a unique program within the United States, the benefits and applications of this field are truly global."

"An excellent program that contains aspects of animal law, policy making, and public policy. This program is pretty small (about 12 students in the class) so you're with the same people everyday. But, if it's a good group, it's really fun and enjoyable! Also, there's no thesis, just a final project, and it's a one year, accelerated program!"

"Pros: flexible, interdisciplinary program, very international Cons: limited name brand awareness, not a strong reputation for quantitative skills, even though you can develop them here"

"This is a great program built around a great community of faculty, staff, and students. Classes are great, professors accessible, and studying in the Boston area has multiple benefits including the opportunity to cross-register at other institutions and benefit from their programs and events."

"The Fletcher School if the premier institution for graduate education (and a professional degree) in international relations/policy. This is borne out by the thought leadership of its faculty and the presence of its alumni in high levels of governmental, intergovernmental, NGO, and private sector institutions."
