On May 11, 2016, Eastern Center for Arts and Technology’s (EASTERN) Administration signed a new articulation agreement for EASTERN Veterinary Science students moving on to Harcum College, providing students with the opportunity to earn college credits through EASTERN’s Veterinary Science program while still in high school.
This new agreement will save EASTERN Veterinary Science student’s time and money as they move on to postsecondary education at Harcum College. EASTERN and Harcum College have jointly certified that EASTERN Veterinary Science students who successfully complete EASTERN’s Veterinary Science program with an average grade of “B” or better may receive 3 credit hours for Harcum College’s ACM 101 – Introduction to Animal Center Management.
“We are always looking for new ways to provide our students with a head start in college through their EASTERN career and technical programs,” said Joe Greb, EASTERN’s Assistant Director. “Veterinary Science at EASTERN will begin in September, and our goal for this program is to prepare students for higher education in the animal science field, provide them with an in-depth knowledge of the careers available in this field, how to deal with clients as one would at a vet clinic, animal hospital, or grooming clinic, and to understand the science aspects of animal care such as vital signs and medication administration, and how to properly maintain the animal’s medical records. Harcum College is a great school, and we are thrilled to partner with them.”
In EASTERN’s Veterinary Science program, students prepare for a rewarding career in a veterinary hospital, pet and pet supply store, grooming salons, kennels, veterinary humane societies, farms and ranches, and/or prepare you for a college degree in Veterinary Sciences. Veterinary Science is a broad field centered on the biology, production, management, and care of animals involving all phases of domestic veterinary production, research, sales, service, business, and education.
