Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary Medicine


The Animal Science/Pre-Veterinary Medicine concentration is composed of two tracks:
1) Animal Science, and
2) Pre-Veterinary Medicine.

Animal Science
The training in Animal Science prepares students for graduate schools and the workforce. Graduates are qualified to work with several agencies of USDA, EPA, U.S. Department of the Interior, State Extension Services, other state agencies, and private industry.

Pre-Veterinary Medicine
The Pre-Veterinary Medicine curriculum prepares students specifically to enter Schools of Veterinary Medicine throughout the U.S. and other countries. However, they can use the same qualifications to enter medical, dental or graduate schools. Graduates who did not enter graduate or professional schools are qualified to seek employment with agencies of the federal government, state agencies, or private industry.
