Animal and Veterinary Science, Pre-Veterinary Medicine Option, B.S.

This option is especially designed to prepare students for application to colleges of veterinary medicine. There is a strong emphasis on the biological, biomedical and physical sciences. This curriculum is also appropriate for students wishing to pursue graduate school opportunities, other professional school applications, or careers in many areas of agribusiness. A minimum of three years of formal course work is required before one can apply to a college of veterinary medicine. Students accepted before completion of their B.S. degree can transfer credits back to UW to complete their degree requirements. Wyoming does not have a college of veterinary medicine. Faculty advisers insure that students meet the variable preveterinary requirements for application to colleges of veterinary medicine in their home state or region.
