Veterinary Science and Public Health

Academic Department

The Veterinary Science and Public Health Academic Department administers the veterinary technology program. The program is designed to give students a broad based background in basic sciences as well as veterinary disciplines. Students working toward this degree will complete the core curriculum designed for all bachelors degrees and also take professional courses in veterinary science.

Pre-veterinary medicine is a non-degree program which prepares students for entry into veterinary school for a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. The program is designed so that successful students may apply for early admission to schools of veterinary medicine. Because course requirements differ with individual schools, students should familiarize themselves with requirements for the schools where they plan to seek enrollment.
