University-wide Requirements

Description: The degree program, the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture with a major in animal health, was begun in 1988. This program was designed, in close cooperation with the College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically for students entering veterinary school after three years of pre-veterinary study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

Upon completion of 40 hours, students enrolled in Animal Health must declare a co-major in a related degree program in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. New transfer students with 40 or more credit hours will be granted an additional semester to declare a co-major.

Students who enter the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine are eligible to receive the B.S.A. degree with a major in animal health only after successfully completing coursework required in the first year of the University of Georgia Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program. Alternatively, students may also complete requirements for a B.S.A. degree in an appropriate major in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. See section on pre-veterinary medicine program.

Career Opportunities: This program is designed for students who wish to study veterinary medicine.
