Bachelor of Science in Premedical Health Studies—Optometry Pathway (BS/OD)School of Arts & Sciences
Start Term: Fall, Spring

Help Patients Improve their Vision— and their Lives
Build a robust foundation of knowledge that positions you for career-long success as an optometrist. Choose the accelerated track and begin your graduate training during the fourth year of your bachelor’s degree or spend four years following the traditional track. Both begin in the fall and offer you the same challenging undergraduate curriculum and preparation you need for professional study. Upon completion of your BS, you’ll spend the next four years at the MCPHS Worcester campus completing the professional education required for the Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree.
