Undergraduate Majors and Minors

Gain the tools to protect animals, people, and the environment.

Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences is the home for in-demand, science-based degrees focused on animal and human health. We train future biomedical professionals and conduct pioneering research in four primary areas: animal diagnostics, immunology and infectious disease, molecular toxicology and carcinogenesis, and veterinary extension. With a solid foundation achieved in their undergraduate program, our students often go on to graduate school to pursue advanced degrees.

Majors and Minors

Immunology and Infectious Disease Major

The Immunology and Infectious Disease program tackles understanding invading pathogens and the body’s complex network of defenses that protect us from those invaders—the immune system. We study the role of drugs and vaccines and the epidemiology of infectious disease, and we conduct pioneering research targeting healthier future outcomes.

Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Major

The Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences program takes pride in not just preparing students for acceptance into veterinary and other biomedical schools, but in helping ensure they thrive and can take the lead when they get there. We offer the rigor and science-centered discipline that students will encounter at the next level of study with a hands-on approach to learning. Students have unparalleled opportunities to dive in and put their learning to work in critical, animal-focused research.
