Pre-veterinary students at Dordt usually major in biology, animal science, chemistry, or agriculture, but occasionally choose business or another major. You can complete a bachelor’s degree at Dordt and then apply to veterinary school, or you may choose to take only the specific courses required before applying for admission to a particular school of veterinary medicine. Contact the school of your choice to learn their requirements.
Most veterinary schools suggest two and one-half years of college chemistry, a year each of biology, microbiology, genetics, English grammar, communication, and sometimes a physics or statistics course.
Agriculture is among Dordt’s top-enrolled programs. If you decide to change emphases, there are seven other B.A. degree emphases to consider: agri-business, agriculture education, animal science, plant science, ag missions, biotechnology, and general agriculture. A two-year associate degree program is also available.
