The Pre-Optometry major will no longer accept new students after December 18, 2020.

About the Major

The Pre-Optometry major is designed for those students who, after completion of their junior year, are admitted to a college of optometry. The Ohio Wesleyan degree is granted after successful completion of the second year in the professional program. Students who seek entrance to an optometry school after four years at Ohio Wesleyan should meet the requirements for any of the established departmental majors or approved interdisciplinary majors.

Admission requirements vary and may include a second semester of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry in addition to courses within our general distribution requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with the pre-optometry advisor regarding specific entrance requirements of the different optometry schools.
