Pre-Veterinary Medicine

Students dissecting a shark

Rockhurst offers a four-year pre-professional program for students interested in becoming veterinarians. This program, based in the Division of Natural Sciences, leads to a BS degree and provides students with the undergraduate courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and math necessary to pursue the Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, D. V. M. Since the requirements from one College of Veterinary Medicine to another vary somewhat, it is important that students interested in this program should consult with the pre-Veterinary Medicine advisor.
