Identify a Faculty Mentor and Supervisors for Degree Programs

The College of Veterinary Medicine includes four departments from which to identify potential thesis mentors and supervisory committee members for non-thesis programs.  You must identify a faculty mentor PRIOR to admission for a thesis option. You must identify a supervisory committee of 3 to 5 graduate faculty by the end of the first semester of study for all degree options, including non-thesis.

Review the websites for each department, including biographical information and research interests of faculty members:

The College also collaborates with other colleges in both the Health Science Center and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to provide students with excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research and training mentors.
