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. At the end of this internship, students present their experiences to faculty and students and discuss what they have learned from the program. Students in the Equine Rehabilitation concentration have completed internships at facilities ranging from large rehabilitation centers to veterinary clinics and private farms with various rehabilitation modalities.
