Graduates of UMC's equine science program understand and are able to meet the daily care, nutrition, health care, and exercise/training needs of horses in their care. They have the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in equine or equine-related employment and have the business and management experience necessary to operate an equine or related business. The program balances the practical skills students need to work with and care for horses and the theory required to build a successful career. The focus is on the business and management aspects of the horse industry, thus providing a broad-based education which appeals to employers. Options also exist for students who wish to pursue graduate school or pre-veterinary studies. Program outcomes for graduates: demonstrate knowledge of theory and practical experience in physiology, nutrition, health, and reproduction of the horse; demonstrate a working knowledge of equine ownership responsibility and husbandry; be able to apply management theories and software and marketing strategies to equine and related enterprises; demonstrate horsemanship and training skills in a variety of disciplines and discern what methods work most effectively with horses of different temperaments and breeding/conformation; have practical skills and knowledge that will lead to a variety of employment opportunities in the equine industry.
