Program Details

Pre-professional programs prepare students for entry into numerous professional programs. The programs are not majors (i.e., a pre-med or pre-physical therapy major) but rather are tailored courses within existing majors. As students determine their program of interest, faculty work one on one with them to ensure they complete the prerequisite course requirements for their professional program(s) of interest.

Students intending to apply for admission to a graduate program in optometry would be best prepared by completing a Biology B.S.
