As a veterinarian, you'll provide routine care for domestic or farm animals and ensure their well-being.

To prepare for acceptance to veterinary school, you will need to take a series of courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. You can choose any major, but many pre-veterinary students choose the BS in biology program. As part of the pre-veterinary program at Calvin, you will also meet with a faculty advisor to help you stay on track with your career plans.
