BS Veterinary Bioscience
The Veterinary Bioscience degree program is an interdisciplinary degree that will give students a foundation in science with the option of a Biological Sciences or Animal Science concentration. Both options allow students to complete prerequisite coursework stipulated by the Veterinary Medical College Application Service and the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges, making them competitive for acceptance into schools such as NC State Veterinary School, Auburn University, University of Florida, Virginia/Maryland College of Veterinary Science, and University of Tennessee. In addition to preparing students for Veterinary School, these concentrations will make students competitive for research-based graduate programs and/or industry positions in science and agriculture.
