The NYU Animal Studies Initiative was established in 2010 to represent and contribute to this rapidly growing and exciting interdisciplinary field.  An integral part of NYU's Department of Environmental Studies, the ASI draws faculty and students from many other departments in the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and the Tisch School of the Arts.  The Initiative offers an undergraduate Minor in Animal Studies (one of the first in the country), supports graduate and post-doctoral research and teaching, and presents a rich annual program of public lectures, conferences, and workshops.
