B.S. in Equine Pre-Veterinary/Pre-Graduate Studies
This major provides a unique opportunity for all pre-veterinary medicine students, including those interested in other species, to work with horses at our Austin E. Knowlton Center for Equine Science, producing horse-experienced veterinary students. In addition to fulfilling the specific requirements for entry into a graduate or veterinary program, students study the horse in depth, one body system at a time, learning about the normal anatomy and physiology, diseases and disorders, current diagnostic modalities, treatments, prognosis and prevention.
Students graduate from the program with a knowledge base that serves them well in future veterinary courses across species. Courses in Farrier Science are also offered, as well as many undergraduate research opportunities.
