NDSU Equine Science Program
The Equine Science program at NDSU is relatively new, but it is part of a NDSU equine tradition that dates back to 1890. The program is offered by the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources through the Department of Animal Sciences.
The Equine Science program offers a variety of options for students with an interest in careers with horses, including a Bachelor of Science as well as minors and certificates in both Equine Science and Therapeutic Horsemanship. The B.S. degree is a four-year science based curriculum with a combination of hands-on labs, riding classes and traditional classroom lectures. The minors are designed to complement other majors, while the certificate programs are designed for non-degree seeking students who would like to further their education.
