Veterinary Medicine

Veterinary schools recognize the value of a liberal arts background for students interested in this field. Although the basic requirements can be obtained in three years, most veterinary schools encourage students to pursue a four-year baccalaureate program. Students contemplating a preveterinary program should have some prior experience with the handling and management of small animals and/or livestock. Current information on admission requirements for American colleges of veterinary medicine is available from the biology department.
