    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved that we had hands on experience with animals.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how to properly hold an animal. For instance, when holding a bird, you want to hold them as you world a football but not too tight.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need help, just ask. If you have a fear of animals or a certain type of animal such as snakes, the class is a wonderful way to overcome your fear.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs.Marshall is an amazing instructor. This is her first time teaching at the college level (she is a full time high school teacher.) Her goal is to help you succeed in this course, and she will do what she can to help you do that. She will give you some pretty fun assignments! She let me do most of my assignments on power point, since I love it so much. She lets you chose the format of the project, so if you want to do it on word, you can. She's really flexible about assignment due dates as well.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn some things I didn't know from this course. Mainly from the livestock point of view. Learning about the different digestive systems. So there are things you can learn even if you have worked in the animal care field before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    What they don't tell you about this course, is you don't need it to get a job in the animal field. I chose this program to help me move up in the veterinary field I was in. I had worked 3 years getting experience and learning on the job. While going through the Animal Care and Management program, I worked with people who had the associates degree. They were in the same career position as me, and they stated that taking the program didn't really help them in the field. This field is mainly based upon experience and on the job knowledge you learn. Take the time to write out the pros and cons of different programs, and talk to graduates of that program to ensure you're doing what's best for you.
