Transcript of College and Career


For my project I have chosen to become a veterinarian, I have always enjoyed animals. I would like to attend Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, this is also the top vet school in Texas.
• Veterinarians are people who help animals and even the owners of the animals. They help the animals by giving them medicine and assessing their injuries. Vets help the owners by giving them advice on what they can do to help the animals and making suggestions on what animals would be good for them.
What to Learn
• In high school you should take 4 mathematics classes: algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. You should take a biology and chemistry class and 4 years of English composition. Also, if your school provides it, you can take animal science which would be in your agricultural classes. The most recommended post-secondary classes are your science classes, mainly biology and chemistry.
Money and Outlook
• The earning potential for a veterinarian grows the longer you are working in this profession. Veterinarian’s entry wage is about $60,318, their average wage is $70,491, and their experienced wage is $84,460. The employment outlook is low, it is equal to or less than 5,000 but, the growth rate is said to increase by 36% through 2010 and 2020.
Industries that employ veterinarians include: animal hospitals, farms, zoos, aquariums, research facilities etc.
There are many places where vets see as of interest. Some being aquariums, zoos, animal hospitals, and different research labs.
