In 1978 Murray State College began Oklahoma’s first Veterinary Technology Program.
The Veterinary Technology Program emphasizes “hands-on” training with multiple species and offers two options for the curriculum.
1. Pre-Veterinary Technology
option gives students the opportunity to take required general education courses prior to beginning the core veterinary technology curriculum. The Pre-Veterinary Technology option consists of 13 to 15 credit hours per semester.
2. Students who meet the requirements and elect to take general education courses concurrently with the Veterinary Technology
core curriculum (2 year option) will be required to take 16-19 credit hours per semester.
Both options are designed to provide basic principles, knowledge and skill development pertaining to care and handling of normal and abnormal animals.
