Curriculum in Poultry Science/Pre-Veterinary Medicine

This option is designed to develop the technical, analytical, and communication skills, as well as provide the broad scientific foundation, needed for success in post-graduate degree programs, such as the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Master of Science, Doctor of Philosophy or other post-graduate professional degrees. Completion of this option will also prepare graduates for technical and research positions in the poultry and allied industries. Courses listed for the first six semesters satisfy requirements for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine. Completion of the remaining requirements or successful completion of one year in the College of Veterinary Medicine or Pharmacy School entitles the student to a B.S. degree in poultry science.
