BHSU Pre-Veterinary Program

About

Prepare for veterinarian school by first earning a bachelor’s degree in biology or chemistry. Students at BHSU have the opportunity to conduct research with faculty mentors. This research experience is invaluable as students apply to the extremely competitive veterinarian professional schools. Experience working with a practicing veterinarian is very important as well. BHSU faculty members work with area veterinarians to secure job shadowing and part-time work opportunities for students.
