Calvin's pre-professional programs will prepare you not only for acceptance into some of the best veterinary schools in the country, but also to be a compassionate and well-rounded animal healthcare provider. A liberal arts education at Calvin will help you pursue your goals.
To prepare for acceptance to veterinary school, you will need to take a series of courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. You can choose any major, but many pre-veterinary students choose the B.S. in biology program. As part of the pre-veterinary program at Calvin, you will also meet with a faculty advisor to help you stay on track with your career plans.
