With the evolution of the vast pet industry, comes the need for more students trained in Animal Science. There are not just opportunities to become a full Veterinarian. A “Pre-vet” and Animal Science major can become a Veterinary Technician, work for a pet product manufacturer, teach, work at a zoo, and many other things. Like many other medical fields, pre-vet students should look for schools that specialize in, and have highly visible “Pre-Veterinary” programs.
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
