Equine Studies Minor

The equine studies minor is intended for students from various backgrounds who wish to supplement their academic major with studies in equine studies. This option, when combined with various majors such as business, biology, communication, education and pre-medicine, provides the student with the scientific and technical knowledge, as well as the hands-on practice of horsemanship. In addition, students interested in pursuing further study and/or careers in various equine fields will benefit from the addition of this minor to their curriculum. Students are exposed to the equine industry. Many graduates may work in the allied industries such as breed associations, feed companies, research laboratories and pharmaceutical companies. Others continue their education for a professional degree, such as veterinary medicine, or work toward a masters or doctoral degree.
