I’m thrilled to share the news that the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) is launching new graduate programs in humane education through an affiliation with Valparaiso University. Beginning in September, IHE will offer an M.Ed. and M.A. in Humane Education, along with concentrations in Humane Education in Valparaiso’s M.Ed. in Instructional Leadership and M.A. in Liberal Studies programs. Additionally, we’ll be offering a Graduate Certificate in Humane Education.
All the programs are distance-learning (with the M.Ed. and M.A. including a 5-day residency at our beautiful facility in coastal Maine), allowing people from across the globe to participate. Each includes the core courses that comprise the content of humane education: Introduction to Humane Education; Environmental Ethics; Animal Protection; Human Rights; Culture and Change.
Humane education provides people of all ages and in a range of settings the knowledge, tools, and motivation to become conscientious and engaged citizens and changemakers for a better world. Our new programs will enable educators and change agents to bring pressing global challenges to people in ways that foster critical and creative thinking to solve problems in ways that work for all.
If you’d like to help us get the word out about our new programs, please download and share our press release.
