For the Love of Animals
Have you always wanted to be a veterinarian? The first step to getting there is attending a strong undergraduate program that helps you prepare by meeting pre-requisite requirements. You’ll find this at Guilford.
As a Pre-Veterinary Medicine student you may major in any discipline as long as you complete the necessary pre-requisite courses for veterinary school. If you are a Health Sciences major, you will work closely with your advisers to design an individualized course of study. This allows you to complete the required science and social science courses to prepare for you for admission to your chosen veterinary program. Additionally, animal nutrition is required by a number of graduate schools. While at Guilford, this course can be taken through the consortium at N.C. A&T University or online at N.C. State or Purdue universities.
Health Science majors also take the Health Science Seminar, a course designed to help you with the graduate school application process, from preparing your personal statement to interview tips and financial planning. During the course, Guilford alumni who are currently in or recently graduated from graduate programs in the health professions often come back to share experiences with current students.
Take a look at this sample double major for the Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. This course of study satisfies the pre-requisites for a graduate program in the health professions while also fulfilling major requirements.
Guilford graduates have or are currently attending veterinary school at Louisiana State University, Mississippi State University, North Carolina State University, Ohio State University, Ross University, University of Georgia, University of Minnesota, University of Tennessee and Washington State University.
