The Animal Sciences program provides high school seniors with the opportunity to explore a variety of veterinary and animal-centric careers in a professional setting while taking Lehigh Carbon Community College science courses for college credit.
In a typical school week, students split their time between immersion in the program curriculum at LCTI, dual enrollment courses (Fundamentals of Biology, Introduction to Veterinary Technology, and Veterinary Terminology) at LCCC and shadowing professionals or participating in other activities at Lehigh Valley Zoo and local veterinary clinics.
Successful participants complete the program with at least seven readily-transferable college credits. Students also get the chance to earn industry credentials that signal their readiness for higher learning to college admissions officers. This program is only available to senior students.
