HCC to Hold Equine Science Program Open House
7/21/2011

NORTHWEST ILLINOIS � Highland Community College will hold an open house for individuals interested in the new Associate of Applied Science degree in Equine Science on Thursday, August 4, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Student/Conference Center on the HCC campus.

The program was recently approved by the Illinois Community College Board and Illinois Board of Higher Education and a full listing of courses are being offered this fall. �We are excited about this new program,� said dean of business and technology, Scott Anderson. �The College is looking to serve an industry that has had a strong presence in this region for a long time.�

The Equine Science program includes over 20 trade-specific courses such as, Equine Physiology, Equine Nutrition, Horse Handling, Riding I and II, and Stable Management I and II. Students need not be pursuing a degree to take Equine Science classes. �We are encouraging individuals who are already working in the horse industry, or are equine enthusiasts, to take courses that they may find interesting or beneficial,� said Anderson.

For more information regarding the Equine Science program, or the August 4 open house, please call Scott Anderson at 815.599.3604, or email scott.anderson@highland.edu.
