MS and PhD Graduate Degrees

Our program is looking for students with outstanding potential, especially those interested in a PhD. To be competitive for a PhD in the College of Veterinary Medicine, prospective applicants should have both BS and Masters degrees or a DVM degree, plus experience with aquatic animals. Interested individuals need to establish a faculty mentor before applying to the program.
