The Humor Academy is a one-of-a kind, three-year, college-level program focused on the science, benefits, and application of humor. Each level of the Humor Academy lasts one year, and those who complete all three years earn the distinction of Certified Humor Professional (CHP). Continuing education credits are available through the Humor Academy, as well.

At the Humor Academy, you’ll take a deep dive into all things humor with an inclusive and supportive cohort of professionals, and you’ll learn from some of the finest experts and comprehensive texts in the field. The Humor Academy uses a collaborative learning environment with participants representing a variety of occupations including (but not limited to) health and wellness, business, education, mental health, spirituality, performance, writing, speaking, and training.
