Shape Human-Animal Policy and Our Community

MS in Conservation Medicine (MCM)

Make an Impact on the Environment and Ecosystem


The MS in Conservation Medicine (MCM) uses a One Health approach to address urgent issues facing our planet, including emerging and resurging diseases, habitat use conflicts, environmental contamination, ecosystem and climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecosystem function degradation.

The reason I chose the MAPP Program was it seemed so diverse in everything that it covered. I learned how to look at animal protection/humane protection in an economic, psychological and historic way..
