Animal Science and Preveterinary Medicine

Berry College’s animal science and preveterinary medicine programs are designed to prepare students for a professional career in animal-related industries. Graduates with animal science degrees often work in livestock production, livestock management and related service industries. Students also are prepared for graduate study and research with course curriculums designed to meet their interests. Preveterinary medicine students earn a degree in animal science and take additional science courses required for veterinary school admission.

 

Animal ScienceSo you want to get into vet school? 

More than 90 percent of Berry students who apply to veterinary schools are accepted on first application, and in some years, 100 percent have been accepted!

What makes the Berry program so good? 

Berry offers one of only two dedicated undergraduate animal science and preveterinary
curriculums in Georgia. You’ll find:

  • Challenging academics that help prepare you for advanced study and the working world.
  • Extensive hands-on experience with large animals that is not available at most universities or colleges.
  • Opportunities to work in related jobs, earning money while you get experience.
  • Small classes designed to provide individual and personal attention.
  • Faculty members whose primary objective is to teach and who love to help students develop to their full potential.
  • Committed faculty advisors who help coordinate a student’s course requirements for admission to graduate school.


What facilities are available? 

  • An ultramodern science building that is one of the finest facilities of its type in the nation; it is designed to promote hands-on learning and student-faculty collaboration in research and study.
  • The Gunby Equine Center, which includes a large covered arena/classroom complex, an outdoor arena, several barns with a total of 50 stalls and 180 acres of pasture. Several horse breeds are used for teaching, research and the equestrian team.
  • The Rollins Ruminant Research Center, which includes an ultramodern dairy with a registered Jersey herd, a sheep unit and a beef unit with a registered Angus herd. Research opportunities related to embryo transfer, progeny testing and other topics are available, as are a number of wildlife projects that capitalize on Berry’s 26,400-acre campus.
 


How about work experience and internships? 

  • Extensive work experience at the Gunby Equine Center and the beef and dairy operations of the Rollins Ruminant Research Center is available through Berry’s voluntary student-work program. You are paid while you learn!
  • Responsibilities range from routine veterinary care and breeding to facility maintenance.
  • Selected students have the opportunity to participate in faculty conducted research projects.
  • Numerous internship opportunities are available in small- and large animal veterinary practices nationwide.
