Vet Tech Emphasis

Many Paths toward Animal Health Careers

The Vet Tech emphasis is an emphasis area within the Animal Science.  Students can either start at MATC-Madison College and complete the rest of their requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree at UW-Platteville or they can start at UW-Platteville and complete the rest of their requirements for an Associate degree in Applied Science (AAS) as a Veterinary Technician at MATC.  Upon completion of the AAS, students are eligible to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) and become a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT).  The completion of both degrees is generally a 5 year path.

Students who are interested in this path toward a future career in the animal healthcare industry can take a look at the plans available under Additional Information. 

*** Note:  All courses that a student wishes to transfer from UW-Platteville to Madison College must receive a grade of C or higher***
