Program Description

The NYU Animal Studies minor draws from courses in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences to provide students with a wide range of options to choose from – from biology and environmental science to art and literary studies, from sociology and anthropology to ethics, law, and policy. This minor can be combined with any major and will help students develop strengths in a variety of academic and professional fields. The NYU Animal Studies minor is one of only very few opportunities in the country to incorporate animal studies into a college degree. Please add the sentence: To declare a minor in animal studies, contact the adviser for animal studies at
