Hi all, first time poster here! :)

I am wondering if there is anyone who knows more about/has gone through either the Master's or Online Graduate Certification program at University of Florida. I'm currently a junior undergrad (just finished soph year), and am beginning to consider schools/paths I want to go down. I really like UF's curriculum and feel, but have also had an interest in forensics my entire life. I recently found out that Veterinary Forensic Science is actually becoming a thing, and noticed the two programs offered at UF.

I guess my question is, has anyone gone through these before and feel it has helped/not helped them in any way? I am wondering if I could quite possibly do this while in vet school, after vet school, or before vet school (maybe as a back-up plan if I don't get in). I have a not above average cGPA (est. 3.44 after this semester's grades) and am starting to think about if I don't get in, I should consider something still in my field, but open to the possibility of not being a veterinarian. That being said, would having a Master's in this field WITHOUT a DVM be of any advantage to me/where I would want to work?

Yes, I do have a strong shelter medicine interest as well. I've volunteered at 2 (still volunteering at one) and have done an internship in a shelter/sanctuary's clinic for a month. I know what it's about for the most part, as much as I can know as an undergrad, and am just wondering if it's worth it.

Thanks everyone, being a forever lurker has been great! :)

There is a thread that is for this topic. If you use the search function, you should find some information. I copied the thread below so you can post to it if you don't find anything you're looking for.

Thank you! I did find that thread, and read through it, was more so posting this to stir up some new interest (maybe new people) and to see if anyone's been through the program, since it didn't seem like anyone there had been through. Thanks again, I'll maybe post there too if this doesn't have any success!

We generally prefer that people bump an old thread rather than making a new one, so that the information about that topic can be kept in one place. Welcome to SDN! :)

Noted in my mind! I replied in that thread, and will probably delete this one. Thank you! :)
