Equine Studies Minor

The Equine Studies minor is designed for students who are majoring in Biology and are interested in applying to post-graduate programs in Animal/Equine Science or Veterinary School. It will also provide students with the 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 a bachelor’s in equine studies and a minor in equine studies. This degree emphasizes the science-oriented courses within the equine program.
