Michigan State currently offers two instructional programs in equine studies with the Department of Animal Science. The Institute of Agricultural Technology Horse Management program is a two-year certificate-granting program for students interested in working with horses with more hands-on application and in entry-level management positions.  Twenty students are accepted to the program annually, which includes a full-semester of externship experience within the equine industry.  The Animal Science Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree, with educational pursuits leading either towards Animal Biology/Pre-veterinary or Animal Industries.  The Animal Science curriculum at MSU is rich with a broad range of equine specific and related courses taught by  leading instructors and researchers in the industry, allowing students to gain a world-class equine education while earning a universally respected BS degree in Animal Science. At present, Michigan State is home to approximately 200 equine oriented students enrolled in both programs. Click HERE to learn more>>
