Program Information

Faculty: Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Pre-Veterinary Studies
Description: The pre-veterinary program is one of five pre-professional science programs at TWU, and is a strong foundation for students who wish to pursue veterinary studies. Offered through the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences, pre-veterinary students are provided with a set of required courses needed for admission into competitive schools such as the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, or the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island.

The program is approximately two years in length and is suited for students with a concern for animals and an interest in medical practices. Pre-veterinary students must also take courses from science departments such as biology, chemistry, math and physics, two English courses, and 15 electives of a student’s choice. In addition, pre-veterinary students incorporate their studies with hands-on experience working with animals and in veterinary clinics. Students are also encouraged to extend their education for two more years to receive a Bachelor of Science degree from TWU while meeting the pre-veterinary program requirements. This option guarantees that students not only have the pre-requisites for veterinary schools, but also receive a liberal arts education.
