Adams State University offers pre-professional training to prepare students for admission to optometry schools. Typically, these institutions admit students who have completed a bachelor’s degree. It is recommended that students plan to complete either the B.S. degree in biology (cellular and molecular biology) or B.S. degree in chemistry (biochemistry), with attention to the completion of the following suggested course list. Prerequisites vary among optometry schools.
Students should check with the schools for specific requirements, preferably early in their undergraduate career. Students should consult with the Adams State pre-optometry advisor early in their program for information and schedule planning.
