Wildlife Pre-Veterinary 3+1

Integration of wildlife science and management and veterinary medicine has become increasingly important as wildlife habitats dwindle and animal populations become more compressed.

Wildlife Pre-Veterinary 3+1Concentration

Integration of wildlife science and management and veterinary medicine has become increasingly important as wildlife habitats dwindle and animal populations become more compressed. Biologists must now increase their attention toward disease diagnosis and abatement. This integrated curriculum allows the student to pursue a 3+1 undergraduate degree program in Wildlife and Fisheries Science for three years and then, if accepted, matriculate into the Veterinary Medicine program in the College of Veterinary Medicine.

Successful graduates of this program are qualified to apply to become Certified Wildlife Biologists with the Wildlife Society. MSU requires a minimum of 124 hours for the undergraduate degree. Therefore, to qualify for the Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife and Fisheries, a student must complete the 3 years of the undergraduate coursework (118 hours) in the wildlife pre-veterinary program and also successfully complete the first year in the Veterinary Medicine curriculum.
