The Master of Science in Horse Science (MSHS) program at MTSU centers a curriculum
designed to prepare graduates trained for the multifaceted equine industry. The MSHS
tailors a program to match a student's interest and produce graduates that are able
to adapt to and thrive in this dynamic field. Horse Science faculty mentor students
in their curriculum development, training in scientific methods, principles of equine
student education and instruction, and general industry practices. All M.S. degree
candidates share a common core of course work in statistics, research methods, and
multiple disciplines within Horse Science and Animal Science. In addition, a significant
number of elective credit hours are available, thus permitting each student the opportunity
to customize his or her individual program by taking courses offered by other departments.
This interdisciplinary approach strengthens graduates' training in specific areas
of interest and career trajectories.
The application deadline is April 15 for those wishing to be considered for graduate assistantships and admission in the Summer or Fall. October 1 is the application deadline for admission in the Spring. Applications will be accepted after these dates, but admission consideration is not guaranteed.
