What do I major in to become a veterinarian?
I'm asking this question because I want to be a veterinarian and I don't know what to major in.
Good question...I found 2 websites for you that has some good information on a career as a Vet...I copied and pasted in the information about education requirements from one of them below. Good luck!
To become a veterinarian one must earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M. or V.M.D.) degree from an accredited college of veterinary medicine. Although many schools admit applicants who don't have a bachelor's degree, having one will increase your odds of getting accepted. There is keen competition for entry into this four year program.
Hi Kristina- Great on you for considering Vet School. Your options of institutions to obtain your DVM are quite small and competitive. It would be a good idea to look through their websites for admission to see what particular requirements (testing, prerequisites) they like. There is not a defined major that's beneficial to getting into vet school, but a science is most common due to the prerequisite classes.
There are also a group of schools where you can obtain a degree to be a vet technician or assistant that may be an undergraduate option for you. The link attached might help in your search. Good luck!
