A pre-professional veterinary medicine curriculum prepares students to apply to a professional veterinary medicine program. In Colorado, a program is available at Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins. See their website for more information.
A minimum of 60 semester hours must be completed before admission to the veterinary program at CSU, including the following:
12 hours of social science, humanities, or foreign language courses
Since most pre-veterinary medicine students will graduate before entering veterinary school, it will be necessary to complete an academic major and other College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences degree requirements.
