School of Agribusiness and Agriscience 

Students who wish to pursue studies in veterinary medicine should follow the appropriate catalog requirements at institutions offering advanced degrees in the field. The following curriculum will enable a student to continue in a standard veterinary curriculum to complete work for a degree in veterinary medicine:

Subtotal: 72-78 credit hours


*May include English literature, speech, music, art, philosophy, religion, language, history, economics, anthropology, medical vocabulary, political science, psychology, sociology, and geography.
**Should have had organic chemistry plus BIOL 1110 /BIOL 1111 , BIOL 1120 /BIOL 1121 , and BIOL 3250 /BIOL 3251  prior.
***MATH 1710  and/or MATH 1720  should be taken if student needs background for Physics.

The above requirements represent the very minimum, and those students without an adequate farm background could benefit by taking such agriculture courses as elements of animal science, livestock management, livestock production courses, animal nutrition, and animal reproduction. Many students who are accepted to a professional veterinary program first complete the four-year Animal Science major at MTSU and earn the B.S. degree
