Certificate: Equine Studies

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Minors

The Certificate in Equine Studies is designed for individuals from various backgrounds who wish to improve their knowledge of equine management and reproduction. The program is designed to cater to the needs of each individual, from beginners with no horse experience, to equine professionals who wish to strengthen their equine credentials. Although the Certificate can provide a broad education on horses, possible areas of specialization include harness race horse training, assisted equine reproduction, and draft horse management.

Currently there is no program providing further education about equine management and reproduction available to the horse-owning public in Maine. As a result of this lack of information, horses, and their owners, frequently suffer unnecessary economic and physical hardship. The University of Maine now has the expertise available to correct this deficiency by offering this Certificate in Equine Studies through Animal and Veterinary Sciences and the Division of Lifelong Learning.

Prior to entry into the program, applicants must complete BIO 100 at the University of Maine or an equivalent course at another institution.


Requirements for completion of the Certificate:

The student must complete the following three classes.


The student selects an additional 8 or more credits from this list:

No more than 8 credits of AVS 397 may be counted towards the 18-credit total.
