Don B. Huntley College of Agriculture

Become a veterinary professional in four years

In only four years, you'll have more hands-on experience than a pre-vet major — taking x-rays, assisting in surgeries. With a bachelor's degree in animal health science, you can become a veterinary technologist, working side-by-side with veterinarians. Customize your major to go into private practice, research, public health or business administration.
