Hoffman ESC Campus Programs!

Animal Science Program: 

The two-year Animal Science program enables students to relate principles of disease, anatomy and physiology, medical posology, terminology, and animal husbandry in order to guide decision making related to animal health. This includes general husbandry and safety, preventative care, proper handling and restraint, and understanding the individual industries. Students practice safe handling and diagnostic techniques in a hands-on environment while caring for a wide range of exotic and domestic animals, including reptiles, cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits, mice, and chinchillas.  Second-year students will focus on physical exams, anatomy and physiology and their impact on animal health and disease, as well as daily care and husbandry of livestock housed permanently at the ESC campus.


Environmental Sustainability and Engineering Program:

 This two-year program provides students with solid academic preparation for college and careers in the Environmental Science and Sustainability fields. This project-based program utilizes the environmental engineering curriculum from Project Lead The Way (PLTW) as well as College Board Advanced Placement and focuses on environmental science, natural and renewable resources, green careers, civic responsibility, field and laboratory research techniques, as well as fundamental skills and knowledge related to the three pillars of sustainability. During the first year, students explore ecological resources, as well as engineering concepts to address Sustainable Water, Food and Fuel sources. In the second year of the program, students participate in an internship program collaborating directly with local environmental agencies and performing a year-long capstone project.
