The UW-Platteville Department of Biology optometry coursework will lay the foundation for a successful career in this in-demand medical field. You’ll begin to understand the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions or impairments of the vision system, preparing you to detect the presence of vision problems, eye diseases, and other eye-related problems. This coursework complements that later, more-depth training you’d pursue at a school of optometry.

Outside the classroom, you can build on your experience through student clubs and organizations, or undergraduate research. Plus, we offer a wide variety of campus support programs like STEM Living and Learning Communities, mentoring, and others that allows you to create a student experience unique to you and your goals.
