What we offer

West Virginia University’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design has a well-rounded equine curriculum combining courses grounded in science, management and therapeutic horsemanship. We offer a minor in Equine Studies with career-driven areas of emphasis in equine science, equine management and equine assisted activities & therapies. Most of our students are Animal & Nutritional Sciences or Agribusiness Management & Rural Development majors, but students from any major may enroll.

The equine studies program is rich in hands-on experiential learning. Our faculty members are experienced horse people from diverse backgrounds. Students in our program have opportunities to be involved in equine-specific student organizations, undergraduate research and working student roles while enrolled.
