About the Program


Preveterinary medicine is not really a major, but rather is a collection of prerequisites for admission to Purdue’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Students may enter the College of Agriculture in this category, but later must pick a major to pursue. Students pursuing a wide variety of curricula may apply and be admitted to a veterinary college.

The preveterinary medicine curriculum includes courses that are required for admission to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree program offered by the Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine. This program of study, coordinated by the College of Agriculture Office of Academic Programs, emphasizes the biological and physical sciences that are foundations for successful study of veterinary medicine. Also, the curriculum includes courses in communication and the social sciences.
