Minor in Optometry

The optometry minor is intended to prepare students for the rigors of a Doctor of Optometry program after completion of undergraduate studies. The profession of optometry uniquely combines mathematics, optics and medicine to create a rewarding health care profession. All students in the optometry minor will experience a cross-disciplinary range of courses including optics, pharmacology and human anatomy as a solid foundation for the curriculum required in professional optometric education. This minor is not intended to be a substitute for any portion of a Doctor of Optometry program, but rather a preparation for a successful transition to a Doctor of Optometry program. This minor can be combined with any major and minor.
