The Thompson School of Applied Science, in Durham, is part of the University of New Hampshire. It's a school for people who want to work with animals, forests or farms.
One of the departments in the school is the Applied Animal Science Department. Since so many Americans have dogs, cats, and other small animals, it's important to have people who are trained to care for these animals. Students at the Thompson School can study Small Animal Care. This is the study of how pets behave and how to train and groom them. Students also learn what kinds of food dogs and cats should eat and how to keep them healthy. Many go on to work with veterinarians or humane societies or become pet groomers.
The two other areas in Applied Animal Science are Equine Management and Dairy Management. Equine Management teaches all sorts of subjects related to horses - everything from riding to physical care of the animals to management of barns and stables. In the Dairy Management program students experience practical, hands-on work with cattle as well as learning about the business of farming. Have you ever considered a career with animals?
