Pathobiology and Veterinary Science majors acquire strong training in biomedical sciences and have many career options. Many PVS students are pre-veterinary (Pre-vet), pre-dental or pre-medical (Pre-med) students. Others pursue graduate work in the biomedical sciences. Others become technicians in research or commercial laboratories after graduation. Coursework options can be tailored to better prepare you for your career goals; discuss this with your academic advisor.
Admissions into Pathobiology are through UConn Admissions. Students with specific questions can also contact our department.
Undergraduate students in Pathobiology can concentrate in several areas including global health, pre-med, pre-vet, and biotechnology.
We are the center for infectious disease research on the Storrs Campus.
