While the major may be intensive, opportunities for unique experiences still exist
Year after year, UC Davis continues to hold its standing as one of the top veterinary schools in both the country and the world. The school recently ranked number one for the fifth year in a row in a study done by QS University subject rankings, a reputable college ranking provider.
Due to its outstanding reputation, it’s no surprise that many incoming undergraduate students choose to apply to UC Davis to pursue a major in animal sciences in hopes of later furthering their education at the post-graduate veterinary school.
The major is notoriously challenging and the program is rigorous. Therefore, it might be assumed that there is little time for extracurricular activities or time to study abroad, but this isn’t always the case.
Students who are interested in studying abroad will find that a number of the available programs they can choose from include certain required classes to complete the animal science major, such as biological sciences or genetics, offered in Ireland and Europe.
