An optometrist earns a doctor of optometry degree and studies the human eye and its function. Optometry school is four years. Optometrists are employed by private industry, as well as by hospitals and clinics. They also may be self-employed.

That is, they require the fundamentals of science (biology, chemistry and physics) within a context of a well-rounded education. The common core of required and elective courses for most pre-health professional students includes:

Pre-professional means that you would like to prepare for a specific career. It's a set of courses that you should take if you plan on taking the exam and entering Law school, or medical school, after you graduate. It is important to note that a pre-professional plan (e.g. - Pre-law) is not a major. You could major in Instrumental Performance and be Pre-law at the same time if you wanted. However, most students attempt to major in an area that will complement their career choice.Here are some examples:
