Pre-Veterinary Medicine

Mercer University undergraduate students who plan to pursue a career in veterinary medicine are considered to be on the “pre-veterinary medicine” or "pre-veterinary" track.  Pre-veterinary medicine is not an academic major, but a preparatory track; pre-veterinary students enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts declare and work towards an academic major and minor>> as they fulfill the admission requirements for their preferred veterinary school(s).

Students should note that the prerequisite for all introductory science courses (chemistry, biology, and physics) is "calculus-readiness" (competency in mathematics at or above the pre-calculus level). Students planning on following a pre-health professions track are therefore advised to take mathematics in high school at least through the pre-calculus level.
