FORT COLLINS, COLORADO - Colorado State University spokeswoman, Heather St. John, announced today that in light of changing employment needs in the U.S., CSU would be offering B.S. and. Master's Degrees in Cowboy Science.
"Our enrollment has dropped significantly in the Business, History, and English Departments, so we are shifting our focus to a more relevant curriculum," said St. John. "If the program takes off, we will eventually offer a Ph.D. program, as well."
The Universities of Arizona, Wyoming, and Montana have confirmed that they too have similar plans in place, particularly as their states have such a great cowboy history.
"We plan to offer such courses as: "Home on the Range", "Extreme Stampede Control", "Fence Mending by the Mile", "Calving With Compassion" and "Branding Without Blood", stated University of Wyoming Academic Affairs Dean, Willard Wasjonshon. "We hope to attract high school graduates from throughout the world as we continue our tradition of educating the world."
