Students

Welcome to our student page! Membership in the HAI Section is free and is open to graduate and undergraduate students in disciplines related to the study of HAI such as psychology, social work, animal behavior and cognition, animal science, veterinary science and more, within and outside the U.S. Belonging to a professional society can be an important aspect of career development, professional identity, and improving employment and educational opportunities. Joining the HAI section provides opportunities for students focused on human-animal interaction to connect with resources and network with professionals in the field. More student resources will be coming soon!
