Pre-Veterinary Science

Do you love all God’s creatures? Then you might consider becoming a veterinarian and perusing the Pre-Veterinary Science track at Cumberlands.

Our emphasis offers traditionally successful routes to veterinary school admission with undergrad majors in either biology or chemistry. We have advisors in both disciplines to help you plan the course of study that best fits your needs. Plus, they understand the entrance procedures and requirements of various post-baccalaureate programs.

The majority of the professional schools want pre-veterinary majors or students who have completed a relevant program with courses in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and have a background in English, humanities, and social sciences. The ability to solve scientific problems and a broad undergraduate education are also considered essential for the pre-professional student. However, you may major in just about any subject or pursue any academic interest as long as the required courses are completed.

In preparation for admission to veterinary school, you should obtain a broad background in natural sciences, social studies and humanities. You should consult bulletins from your chosen veterinary school for specific entrance requirements.
