UT Martin's veterinary science option is designed for students who wish to receive a bachelor's degree in animal science and meet the requirements for entrance into many professional schools, specifically, The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.
Unlike other veterinary pre-professional programs that focus on a single specialty, our veterinary science concentration will prepare you to work with a wide variety of animal patients—everything from livestock to exotic pets. Our comprehensive curriculum is just one of the reasons why graduates of this program have such a high rate of acceptance to veterinary school.
Students must apply to UT Martin.
Once accepted to UTM, students can start taking general education and animal science requirements in veterinary technology.
Students can then apply specifically to the veterinary technology program when they meet the following requirements:
