Pre-Veterinary Science

Students and Sheep

The Pre-veterinary curriculum is one of two options within the Animal Science Concentration at Tennessee Tech University. It is designed to prepare students with courses required for entry into a college of veterinary medicine and provide them with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture. Areas emphasized are nutrition, physiology, genetics, and diseases.

How can I use a Pre-Veterinary Degree?

The program is specifically designed to meet admission requirements of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine but additions or adjustments to the curriculum may be made to meet entrance requirements of Colleges of Veterinary Medicine at other institutions.
