The B.S. in Veterinary Technology provides a strong educational foundation in science and the liberal arts, and comprehensive coursework in veterinary technology. Students receive the core knowledge for entry into professional practice as well as tools for lifelong learning. Through the synthesis of clinical and didactic experiences, students develop clinical competence, conceptual understanding and critical thinking skills for effective problem-solving.
We seek to prepare graduates who will have essential literacies including written and oral communication skills and thus be clinically competent professionals able to provide quality care to the community and other groups of interest. Clinical externship placements include some of the best veterinary facilities in the area –and some, the best in the country. Both large animal and small animal clinical skills will be taught, with an emphasis on the latter. The student will acquire over 500 hours of hands-on clinical experience, in shelter, small clinic, and large hospital environments.
