Pre-Veterinary Medicine Specialization

Overview

 

Advising

Students may choose to complete a bachelor of science degree while completing the pre-professional requirements, but students do not have to complete a bachelor of science degree in order to apply for admission to a veterinary college. Once students have completed the preprofessional requirements, they may apply. However, only 30% of students who are admitted to veterinary schools are those without a bachelor's degree. Completion of the preprofessional requirements can be done in as little as two years but usually takes three or four years of undergraduate study.

Preprofessional requirements of the 27 schools and colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States vary. Students interested in applying to a school or college of veterinary medicine outside Texas should contact the school or college to obtain information on preprofessional requirements.

These courses satisfy the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine preprofessional requirements:
