Pre-Veterinary Medicine

The pre-veterinary medicine program prepares one to apply for entry into a veterinary school. Each student will choose a major at Roberts which can be any of the majors that are offered. Students often choose a science major since a number of science courses are required in the pre-vet program. These courses include a year of general chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, a year of physics, a year of general biology and often times a semester of calculus. A student should choose a major based on what one would want to do if he or she did not gain admission to veterinary school. Many veterinary schools require a prescribed number of hours observing and working with animals that students must complete outside of classes.
