~ Holly Clark, IHE M.Ed. graduate
If you've been looking for a way to combine your unique skills and talents with your passion to help animals and people and the earth, now is the time to consider one of our five accredited online graduate programs (including an M.Ed., M.A., and graduate certificate) that we offer in affiliation with Valparaiso University. The deadline for the fall 2012 semester is August 1 for the M.Ed program and August 15 for all others.
Here are five of the top reasons to enroll:
- Our programs are comprehensive & unique. Core coursework in each program highlights the interconnectedness of human rights, animal protection, and environmental stewardship. Our students don't have to settle for studying one area of social justice; they can work to help all people and animals and the earth through the comprehensive lens of humane education.
- Our programs are flexible & online. IHE students come from all over the world; programs can be taken from anywhere, and the coursework allows a flexible schedule. Programs also offer flexibility with connectedness and collaboration. You will have regular contact with the other students in your program as well as IHE faculty.
- Our programs are truly life changing. Our students and alumni regularly tell us how transformative their experiences have been. M.Ed. graduate, Neil Hornish called his time as a graduate student in the M.Ed. program "one of the most defining periods of my life."
- Our programs are solutions-oriented and deeply examine root problems. Because IHE views education as key to changing the world, students graduate - no matter what background or profession - prepared to work towards fundamental, systemic change that transforms lives and benefits all in far-reaching ways.
- Our programs are wide-ranging and long-lasting. Graduate studies in humane education are designed in ways that allow you to modify your program to best serve your own unique interests and situation. Students and graduates are involved in classroom teaching, outreach education, social business development, law, filmmaking, engineering, architecture, health care, activism, and more. And they are changing lives and creating new systems that help the planet thrive.
