Animal and Veterinary Sciences, Pre-Vet/Veterinary Science Option, B.S.


The first three years of this pre-professional curriculum is designed to meet the minimum requirements for making application to an accredited school of veterinary medicine. Students accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine at Tuskegee University after completing the veterinary science option in the Department of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences/Animal and Veterinary Sciences program and successfully completing the first two years of professional training are eligible to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal and Veterinary Sciences with a concentration in veterinary sciences.

It should be pointed out that successful completion of the three-year pre-professional curriculum in the Animal, Poultry and Veterinary sciences does not guarantee that a student will be accepted into a school of veterinary medicine, since applicants are selected on competitive basis. Students interested in applying to the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine should review pre-professional requirements carefully in consultation with assigned academic advisors. Opportunities for advanced graduate studies may exist in numerous graduate programs (i.e., animal, poultry or veterinary sciences, food sciences, and many aspects of biological or biomedical sciences).
