Earn a Veterinary Technology Degree—Hands-on

Are animals your passion?  Become part of an animal care team by earning a degree in veterinary technology. 

Globe University offers four-year and two-year degrees in veterinary technology. In both programs, you will work with live animals early in the program, perform laboratory procedures and learn how to communicate with vets and pet owners. It is our goal to provide you with a hands-on education that prepares you for the work in the field and enables you to pursue a great career. 

Work in large or small animal vet clinics, animal research or wildlife rescue.  Enjoy a career taking care of animals and ensuring their well being. Our vet tech school is fully accredited by the AVMA.

“The best part of the veterinary technology program at Globe is that we are working with animals all the time. Besides your animal care duties, you will help with things like vaccinations, clip nails, help with physical exams, prep for surgery–it’s very hands on. If you are willing to learn, you will learn, because you are thrown into those situations every day with proper supervision.”
