Equine Studies – Equine Management
our campus is a 200-acre working horse farm – students can walk from their room to the barn in minutes
students earn valuable hands on experience on campus and at internship placements
Midway University’s Equine Studies-Equine Management concentration is designed to develop strong farm operation and facilities management skills. Students will take the core equine studies courses for the major but then select Equine Management as their area of concentration and complete 20 credit hours of course work.
Topics within this major include equine farm operations management, equine reproductive and pasture management, as well as facilities design and management. This area of concentration is a good choice for students who wish to lead their own farm operation or become a manager within the industry. Students interested in equine careers can also choose a business or sport management minor as enhancements to their major.
