Major Details

Biology B.S.

Pre-Vet Concentration:

This major combines EQS and Biology in a program designed to prepare students for a veterinary medicine degree. It allows students to complete in 4 years a biology major that fulfills the additional science requirements for vet school, as well as permitting them to take a number of EQS courses. Students who do well in this program and the recommended extracurricular activities should be competitive for the next step in their education.
