HSUS Looking to Educate Future Anti’s

The world of Higher Education may never be the same.

The world of Higher Education may never be the same. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) now has plans to educate the next generation of anti-hunting, animal rights activists.

The HSUS recently announced that it had received “a license as a higher education degree-granting institution by the District of Columbia Education Licensure Commission.” The Humane Society University is not a typical university with a single central classroom. Instead, it offers both on-site and Internet based courses including those devoted to advocacy. The HSUS has even partnered with the Duquesne University's School of Leadership and Professional Advancement to provide a curriculum leading to both a Bachelor’s degree in “Humane Leadership” and a Master’s in “Community Leadership.”

Most concerning is the advocacy being offered. A potential activist can become a “Certified Advocacy Management Specialist” by completing five courses that focus on research and planning, influencing corporate behavior, message development, becoming a citizen lobbyist, and building a grassroots movement.
