This minor is designed for students who are majoring in Biology, and are interested in either applying to post-graduate programs in Animal/Equine Science or Veterinary School. It will also provide students with knowledge needed to obtain a position in an equine-related field that requires a degree or special training in another field of study. Students may not receive both a bachelor’s degree in equine studies and a minor in equine studies. This degree emphasizes the more science-oriented courses within the equine program.
