Home to nationally ranked and recognized academic departments, residential colleges, and service-learning programs, MSU is a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists, and leaders.
The College of Veterinary Medicine was formally established as a four-year, degree-granting program in 1910. Today, the college includes three clinical departments -- large-animal clinical sciences, small-animal clinical sciences, and pathobiology and diagnostic investigation; two affiliated biomedical science departments -- microbiology and molecular genetics and pharmacology/toxicology; two service units -- the Veterinary Medical Center and the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory; and several research centers.
In addition to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree program, the college also offers certificate and bachelor’s degree programs in veterinary technology, as well as advanced degree (master’s and doctor of philosophy) programs.
