Equine Science and Management A.A.S.


The strength of the Morrisville State College Equine Science and Management (A.A.S.) program is twofold. The range of courses offers both practical experience in handling horses and quality academic opportunities. The program also provides the student with the opportunity to concentrate on breeding, training, nutrition, and management specifically with horses, rather than with a generalized group of livestock.

Our second strength is in our facilities; providing students with an outstanding equine laboratory in which to pursue their studies.

The equine curriculum focuses on the development of industry skills including care and training of horses, riding, driving, breeding and business and stable management. Students who major in Equine Science and Management have varied career objectives. Many intend to pursue a career in some aspect of the horse industry, while others may take technical courses from other areas of study to expand their potential employment base.

Two concentrations are offered to prepare students to meet their goals: a career concentration in Equine Science or a general concentration that allows students to customize their coursework to prepare for additional academic study or transfer to other less traditional equine-related careers. Many graduates continue in Morrisville’s Equine Science baccalaureate degree program.
