Program Description:

Do you love animals? No, do you really love them? So much that you want to treat them when they’re sick? And, help them stay healthy and happy? Then you may want to be a veterinarian. 

To be a veterinarian, you’ll need a doctor of veterinary medicine degree. But first, you’ll need a bachelor’s degree. You can do that on our campus. Most students in veterinary school now majored in biology. 

Each vet school may have specific requirements, in addition to the minimum courses required by most of them. So, we advise you to check with the vet school of your choice before you complete your bachelor’s degree. 

And, having veterinary-related experience is extremely important before applying to vet school. To get experience, you can work, volunteer or intern in veterinary clinics, farms, zoos, wildlife parks or ranches.

What can you do with a degree in Pre-Vetrinary Medicine.
