Houghton provides a broad, pre-professional education, while offering those courses specified by veterinary medical colleges for admission. Veterinary colleges stress the desirability of a well-rounded post-secondary education. They accept students without regard to their pre-professional major and sometimes after three years or 90 hours of credit. However, most applicants major in biology or chemistry and, on the average, have more than 100 hours of pre-professional training. Because there are relatively few veterinary colleges, the number of students accepted each year into veterinary curricula is small. Therefore, excellence of academic achievement and personal character, as well as familiarity with the profession, is necessary for admission. For further information on the pre-vet program contact Dr. Aaron Sullivan.
