Veterinary science students examining a dog.
The Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Science at MSU will give you the skills you need to prepare for veterinary school. Through a combination of biology, chemistry, agriculture and other classes, you'll receive a well-rounded education that prepares you for a career as a large or small animal veterinarian, as well as para-professional careers in government regulatory medicine and research and development.

Learning goes far beyond the classroom at MSU. You'll also gain valuable hands-on experience by working with horses, cows, pigs and other animals at the Derrickson Agricultural Complex, the University's 325-acre farm.

The program meets all the pre-entrance requirements for all of the major colleges of veterinary medicine in the U.S., but completion of the program does not guarantee acceptance into veterinary school.
