Qualified candidates must have a college level background in science or a professional degree. The MS degree is usually completed in two years.
The MS program features graduate-level courses, seminars, an original research project, and completion of a thesis with a thesis defense. The program is designed to develop the analytical thinking and problem-solving skills needed to be a successful scientist. The program emphasizes research in an area of vision science that is determined by the student’s interests and the expertise of the graduate faculty.
Students accepted into the MS program receive a broad background in vision science and strong training in research. The program provides graduates with enhanced career opportunities and skills that enable them to contribute new knowledge to the field, help them assess new scientific developments relevant to optometry and vision science, and enables them to be more competitive for residencies and academic or industry positions following graduation.
