Students in classroom

Rockhurst offers a four-year pre-professional program for students interested in obtaining the Doctorate in Optometry, O. D. This program, based in the Division of Natural Sciences, leads to a BS degree and provides students with the undergraduate courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and math necessary to pursue the advanced professional degree. There is no uniform listing of courses required by all Colleges of Optometry. Hence it is important that students interested in this program should consult regularly with the pre-optometry advisor.
