Have a question?
Animal Health is a fast-track major for students serious about going to veterinary school. It's a three-year program that lets you, as an Animal Health major, use your first year of vet school as the fourth year of your Animal Health degree. If you aren't accepted into UGA's College of Veterinary Medicine by the end of your third year, that's okay. You haven't lost any time on a traditional four-year degree. You can finish your bachelor's with a degree in animal science, avian biology, poultry science, biological science or dairy science, and then reapply to vet school.
