Where Animal Behavior, Cognition, Conservation, Welfare & Evolution Meet!Animal Behavior & Conservation

The Animal Behavior & Conservation (ABC) program at Hunter College offers students the unique opportunity to complete a 36-credit MA program or a 15-credit Advanced Certificate program in the heart of New York City.

There is increasing scientific and public sentiment, awareness, and interest in animal behavior, cognition, communication, conservation, and animal welfare science and the importance of enrichment for zoo, laboratory, and farm animals. This has been reflected in a growing need for highly trained scientists and professionals in these areas.

Our ABC faculty are engaged in cutting edge research and are well known for their scholarly pursuits and recognized for their contributions to translational science.
