Description of Major
The degree program was designed in close cooperation with the College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically for students entering
veterinary school after three years of pre-veterinary study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Students who
enter the College of Veterinary Medicine upon completion of the degree requirements are eligible to receive the B.S.A. degree with a
major in animal health only after successfully completing the first year of study in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Alternatively,
students may also use the senior year to complete requirements for a B.S.A. degree in an appropriate major in the College of
Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
