Veterinary Technology Programs

Becker’s AVMA-accredited Veterinary Technology program provides students with a broad view of veterinary medicine and offers the flexibility to enter the workforce in a variety of different animal related careers. The first two years allow students to complete an Associate of Science degree in Veterinary Technology and then, during the junior and senior year complete the Bachelor of Science program where emphasis is placed on building a solid base of knowledge and advanced nursing skills related to nutrition, animal husbandry, zoonotic diseases, and preventive medicine in companion and non-companion animals.

Experienced faculty are engaged with students as active partners in the learning process through science-based course work in the classroom, as well as hands-on practical experiences which include the on-campus Becker Veterinary Clinic at the Lenfest Animal Health Center; field trips to shelters, large animal facilities- including the Becker Equestrian Center, and laboratories; as well as experiential learning opportunities in an approved research facility, private veterinary practice, or veterinary teaching facility.

Becker also offers a VTNE review course. This is open to all Becker students and the outside public.
