If you see yourself continuing on to professional veterinary school after college, the preveterinary medicine program at Clemson may be right for you. If animals are your passion and you’ve always known that veterinary school is the place for you, Clemson has the faculty and resources to prepare you for the road ahead. Most veterinary schools do not require a bachelor’s degree, so you can focus your studies on the necessary courses to prepare you for your graduate school curriculum. But if you’d like to take on a major while acquiring these prerequisite classes, Clemson encourages you do to so. You’ll work closely with our preveterinary adviser to ensure that your courses are putting you on the path to veterinary school. While here, you can build a résumé full of diverse experiences based on your personal interests and career goals. Immerse yourself in scientific research, gain work experience or even travel abroad, all while achieving your goal of becoming a veterinarian.
