An undergraduate degree in equine studies gives job seekers in this industry a significant advantage—specialized training, business skills, in-depth learning, and hands-on experience—invaluable tools in seeking employment or running a business. Students learn in the classroom and at the College's Equestrian Center, located on a beautiful 40-acre site in Paxton, Massachusetts, which contains both an indoor and outdoor riding arena, indoor and outdoor pens, round pen, and pastures and turnout areas.
The Bachelor of Science in Equine Studies allows students to focus on horse health, behavior, care, and management, and to develop marketable skills for a successful career in the highly diverse equine industry. Students may mix and match electives for a specialization in riding instruction or a specialization in horsemanship and equine care. This degree will also provide a foundation for students seeking a graduate degree in such areas as equine nutrition, equine reproduction, or equine sports medicine.
All equine studies students take a required core of courses and choose from a list of program and open electives that provide both classroom and hands-on learning opportunities. Much of the learning experience takes place at the Becker College Equestrian Center. Advisors work with students to choose course work and externships/practica that will guide them in fulfilling their goals and interests in the equine field.
