CVM Graduate Education
The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at Mississippi State University (MSU) provides M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Veterinary Medical Sciences (VMS) and a Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology (ENVT). These graduate programs provide advanced educational opportunities for students in a broad range of biomedical and veterinary sciences. The goal of the VMS and ENVT programs is to provide training for the next generation of scientists and educators who will be leaders in biomedical and veterinary research and education. Faculty in CVM’s Department of Basic Sciences, Department of Clinical Sciences, and Department of Pathobiology & Population Medicine lead each student’s graduate education. Involvement in ongoing research projects conducted by the faculty is an important part of each degree program. Students in the VMS program specialize in disciplines such as applied clinical research, biocomputing, epidemiology, health disparities, infectious diseases, and toxicology.
Students pursuing admission to one of the M.S. or Ph.D. programs in CVM must complete all admission requirements of the MSU Office of Graduate Studies (OGS). From the MSU Office of Graduate Studies page, students should click on “Apply Online Now” to be directed to the MSU Graduate Admission Online Application site. In addition to the MSU OGS application, the CVM Graduate Faculty would like to evaluate prospective student’s research interests using the CVM Graduate Student – Background and Interest Form. Students interested in the CVM graduate program should complete the form and submit to the CVM ORGS Office by emailing the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Background and Interest Form will be used to evaluate the student’s research interests and place students within the appropriate research program when admitted to the CVM Graduate Program. The form is also used to determine/award available graduate research assistantships/grants.
In addition to the traditional M.S. and Ph.D. programs in the College, there is a path within the DVM program in which students may pursue a DVM-PhD or DVM-MS Dual Degree. Information concerning the DVM Dual Degree programs can be found at the Combined DVM-Graduate Degree Programs site.
If you have additional questions or need assistance concerning CVM graduate education, please call 662-325-1417 or email the ORGS Office at email@example.com.
