The four-year Veterinary Technology curriculum leads to a B.S. degree and allows you to control the direction of your education through the choice of electives or a minor field of study. The pre-veterinary technology or first year of the program is open enrollment. Students interested in veterinary technology have the opportunity to take courses that will help them decide if they want to apply for the limited-enrollment professional portion of the program. A maximum of 28 students are selected each spring to enter the professional portion of the program the following fall.
Topics that you will study in the professional portion of the program include technical nursing skills, clinical pathology, radiography, pharmacology, anesthesiology, microbiology, surgical nursing and animal diseases. You will work with cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, dogs, cats, birds and laboratory animals. In addition to lectures and demonstrations, we offer a great deal of practical experience. After completion of all the veterinary technology courses, students enroll in a 6-12-credit clinical externship. Your entire academic career is planned to allow you to adapt to individual employer needs after you graduate.
