This two year programme offers you the opportunity to pursue a specialist interest in the field of equine behaviour. The course covers a range of practical and theoretical modules in anatomy and physiology, nutrition, health, as well as the specialist behaviour modules where you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the academic theory underpinning the natural behaviour of the horse, incorporating principles of ethology and psychology and the application of this to training and husbandry procedures. The course structure follows the first two years of the BSc (Hons) Equine Behavioural Science making it very easy to progress straight onto this course following successful completion of the Dip HE in Equine Behavioural Science.
