Beginning fall of 2015, Centenary College in Hackettstown, New Jersey will offer a pre-veterinary track degree: Bachelor of Science in Equine Science.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for those who are interested in the field of veterinary medicine, as well as the science-associated careers within the industry,” Michael Fugaro, VDM, Dipl. ACVS and Professor of Equine Studies said, according to NJ.com.

Designed for highly motivated students by the Equine Studies and Mathematics & Natural Sciences departments, the four-year program will consist of 20-credit course loads per semester. The program is for academically-minded students pursuing careers in veterinary medicine and other animal science fields. Those fields include physiology, biomedical research, nutrition, pharmaceuticals and technology.

Students in this program will receive career development advisement from experts in the field, and will also be encouraged to participate in experiential learning and internships. They will receive skills training in the areas of pro-activeness, professional networking, handling stress and time management through the pre-professionals organization. The organization will also help students with graduate school options and applications.
