Pre Veterinary

Students interested in gaining admission to Veterinary school will select a major (any major is acceptable; however, most students select Biology or Chemistry). Biology major, Option C and Chemistry majors, Option B or C are acceptable for pre-veterinary interests. The Veterinary programs require certain prerequisites (those for Texas A&M are listed below). These majors get you the majority of the prerequisites but we have to add some extra classes to fulfill all requirements. It is also good idea to contact schools you are interested in and determine if you are getting the correct classes.
