Veterinary Preventive Medicine Graduate Programs

The Veterinary Preventive Medicine Graduate Faculty welcome YOU -- our current and prospective students, faculty and friends -- to our website. Please explore our graduate programs fully, and let us know if you have any questions we can help answer.

Our programs and areas of interest span the full range of the preventive veterinary medicine including animal welfare, diagnostic medicine, disease epidemiology, knowledge transfer methods, organism ecology, production medicine, and risk assessment. Currently, we have programs that will meet a variety of needs including distance course options for practitioners or concurrent DVM students.  The programs include:

  • Masters of Science by thesis with a major in Veterinary Preventive Medicine -30 credits
  • Masters of Science by non-thesis with a major in Veterinary Preventive Medicine -36 credits
  • Graduate Certificate in Veterinary Preventive Medicine (entirely by distance education) -15 credits

Our research opportunities frequently have interdisciplinary, collaborative approaches. We are distinctive insofar that our graduate faculty are involved in all areas of livestock production and many graduate faculty are involved in serving producers, veterinarians, industry groups and government agencies.  Our small size ensures that you will have individual attention, tailored advising and research opportunities well-matched to your interests. As a student here, you won’t just be a face in a crowd! Our faculty and students are operating at the cutting edge of their fields of knowledge. We are working hard to cultivate the very best graduate programs and prepare the next generation of independent, intellectual leaders in their fields.
