Do you love animals? Do you enjoy science? Then you’ll certainly find the animal and veterinary sciences major will blend your passions and academic interests. Students in our program learn to apply the core science foundations to issues in animal health, nutrition, food production and management. You’ll select from one of three concentration areas that include animal agribusiness, equine business, or pre-veterinary and science. Although this major has served Clemson students as the most successful means for entrance to veterinary medicine programs, there are many other opportunities to work with or study animals outside of professional school.
