Those who are interested in veterinary medicine can complete basic science requirements at the University of Guam. However, there are very few schools of veterinary medicine and they are extremely selective. They usually require, in addition to basic science, agriculture courses in animal husbandry, animal nutrition, etc., and all have specific state residency requirements which being a resident of Guam does not fulfill. Pre-vet students are encouraged to attend the University of Guam for two years, during which time basic science courses can be taken and appropriate catalogs studied.
The University offers a pre-pharmacy program that leads directly to entrance to the School of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaii – Hilo. For information, contact the Dean, CNAS at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The University of Guam Engineering Science Program parallels the engineering programs offered during the first two years at major colleges and universities. In order to complete his or her studies, it is expected that the student would transfer to another university that offers degrees in particular fields of engineering after completing the required course work in this program. The University’s pre-engineering program is articulated with the University of Iowa’s College of Engineering. Interested students should contact the Dean of the College of Natural and Applied Sciences.
