1, 2 The undergraduate majors in Animal Sciences and Natural Resource Ecology and Management offer a three-year pre-veterinary medicine concentration. Students spend three years taking the pre-requisite courses for the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine and apply for admissions during their junior year. If accepted, students may begin Vet School, and after the completion of the first year, receive the B.S. degree. Students who are not accepted to Vet School after three years of undergraduate course work must switch to one of the four year concentrations to receive the B.S. degree.
