About the Program

You're interested in the eye-care profession, and you want the educational foundation you need for success. When you add our pre-optometry track to your major, we can help bolster your application for higher education, putting you on the path to an eye-care career.

Right away, we're going to assign you a pre-health advisor who will take a look at your vision for your future, and help you register for the specific courses and labs that you're going to need. These pre-optometry prerequisites will cover such topics as biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, microbiology, biochemistry, calculus, and statistics. In addition, you'll take a variety of non-science courses such as English, social/behavioral science, and psychology.

Delivery Methods
