Equine Studies

Lake Erie College's equine studies program is the first step on the road to success. The broad-based liberal arts foundation that Lake Erie College provides, combined with a major program of study, is the best preparation for any career. Students will learn to think critically, communicate effectively and develop a sense of confidence that promotes leadership skills. Students can turn avocation for horses into a vocation in the equestrian industry.

Many students choose to combine their equestrian interests with studies in the natural sciences, business or psychology, or with preparation for veterinary or graduate school. Additionally, our curriculum addresses the needs of students who will work in a world that is becoming increasingly interdependent, by providing opportunities to learn about peoples and cultures other than their own.

"Our hands-on approach allows our equine studies majors to make the leap from textbook learning to real-life decisions with confidence."
