The Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with Pre-Veterinary Medicine concentration from Sam Houston State University is a great first step on the educational path to becoming a veterinarian. The concentration is designed to provide the preprofessional training necessary to prepare students for admission to veterinary college. The program of study includes all of the prerequisite classes to apply to veterinary medical schools. In addition to animal science courses, students will gain foundational knowledge of biology, chemistry, and physics on which to build in their future studies. Many students pursue a master’s degree in Agricultural Sciences, Animal Reproduction and Animal Nutrition.
Students are encouraged to actively participate in professional extracurricular activities. Some of those sponsored by the department include the Pre-Veterinary Society, Alpha Gamma Rho, Block and Bridle, Collegiate FFA, Delta Tau Alpha, Rodeo Club, and Sigma Alpha.
