Equine & Animal Science  prepares students for careers in the equine and animal sciences field. Students learn to care for, train, and manage pleasure, standard bred, and draft horses. Students also learn the physiology and anatomy of equine and animal structures, behaviorism, breeding, and much more. Research papers, projects and presentations are a daily part of academic life in the program. Students also travel to a live horse lab several days per week, working with six to eight horses at a local barn to apply what they are learning in class. Students develop skills such as problem solving, self-directed learning, creativity, team work, innovation, effective communication, and critical thinking along with  technical skills.
