Animal Science, B.S., Pre-Veterinary Emphasis, Four-Year Plan

Below is a sample degree plan that can be used as a guide to identify courses required to fulfill the major and other requirements needed for degree completion. The following is only an example and represents a possible course sequence for first-year students entering UW-Platteville in the fall term.  The major requirements do not add up to the 120 credits needed for graduation.  See your advisor for additional guidance.  A student's actual degree plan may differ depending on the course of study selected (emphasis, second major, minor, etc.), placement scores, and incoming credits (transfer, AP, etc.).  Students should consult their program advisor(s) to ensure that they have the most accurate and up-to-date information available about a particular four-year degree option.

This sample plan assumes readiness for each course and/or major plan.  Some courses may not be offered every term.  All courses may not be available at all campuses and/or in all formats.

Students should use the Academic Advisement Report (AAR) in PASS and work closely with their advisor(s) to ensure completion of all requirements in a timely manner.

Students are required to complete three credits of professional engagement which can be either an Internship, Study Abroad or Undergraduate Research. Internships are typically completed the summer between sophomore and junior year.

We can adjust this program to meet the pre-requisites of any professional school a student may wish to apply.

MATH 1530 is not needed if you have a math placement score of 30 or have AP credit

Bachelor of Science students who have not maintained a “C” or higher average in one year (two semesters) of high school foreign language courses must complete a minmum of one semester in a university-level foreign language with a grade of “C” or better.
