The Morrisville (NY) State College’s Equine Management and Science programs are seeking students for their Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree programs. The program is designed to prepare students for a career in an equine-related field. Concentrations include Equine Science and Management, Equine Racing, Equine Breeding, Equine Business Management and Equine Rehabilitation, and are geared to Thoroughbred and Standardbred racing, as well as business management.
During the final year of their bachelor’s degree, students complete a 15-credit internship at an outside business or organization within the equine field. Students identify the goals they hope to accomplish prior to starting their internship and carry out a planned program of educational experiences over a 15-week period.
