optometry

The courses required for admission to optometry school are listed below, along with their Binghamton University equivalents. With the exception of the English, Psychology, and Mathematics, the remaining coursework is covered on the OAT. Therefore, you need to complete the Biology, both Chemistries, and Physics prior to taking the OAT. There are several ways in which you can create a course schedule in order to complete the course requirements in a timely manner. These, as well as other information, are discussed in the Pre-Health Freshman-Sophomore Handbook (pdf, 277kb).
