The overall mission of the Veterinary Science graduate program is to provide opportunities for students to become talented scientists who are creative, critical and independent thinkers with the contemporary skills and knowledge to perform independent research and to effectively communicate their results.  A primary goal of the research is to improve our understanding of the biology of Equidae. Emphasis is placed on investigating the causes and mechanisms that affect the production and performance of horses, regardless of breed.

Teaching the next generation of scientists and researchers is part of the Department of Veterinary Science's core mission.

The department offers a pre-veterinary medicine advising program that prepares students to meet requirements for veterinary schools in the United States. The department offers graduate degrees in a master of science and doctor of philosophy. The department also hosts several postdoctoral scholars and visiting scientists from various countries each year.
