Academic Prerequisites for Veterinary School
A program in Pre-Veterinary Medicine is offered through the Departments of Biological Sciences and Animal Science. Although the Pre-Veterinary programs offered through both departments meet all the requirements for admission to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, a student is typically best suited for one program or the other. It is important that a student discuss with an advisor which program is best suited to his or her interests, skills, and goals.
