Students interested in pre-veterinary studies complete a sequence of courses that fulfill all pre-professional requirements. Most pre-veterinary students select a major in biology, neuroscience, chemistry, or biology-chemistry, though other fields are possible. The academic advisor guides the student’s course choices to ensure that they best suit the student’s career goals. The science curriculum includes the prerequisite courses for admission to veterinary school including general biology, general and organic chemistry, genetics, microbiology, comparative animal physiology, etc.  Most students complete an internship or shadowing experience in animal care.  The academic advisor also assists in the professional school admissions process.

Arrangements for the internship are made by the university. The pre-medical advisor also assists in the professional school admissions process.
