Ambitious and motivated Towson University students may choose to focus their studies in the pre-veterinary program to gain the strong academic foundation and skills necessary to be competitive veterinary school applicants. Graduates go on to successful careers as veterinarians.

The program offers students:

  • research opportunities and assistance in pursuing internships
  • highly individualized advising
  • small classes taught by faculty who are recognized as accomplished teachers and researchers
  • state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation

Students interested in veterinary school typically major in biology or chemistry, though you don’t need a science major to apply. These highly selective professional schools do require completion of certain science and mathematics courses, however. You can view details and requirements in the Undergraduate Catalog.
