The study program ”Master of Science M.Sc. Vision Science and Business (Optometry)“ offers a broad variety of optometry-related courses. The classes are predominantly lectured in English by renowned professors from American Partner Universities.
The study program is on a part-time basis allowing for full-time employment and usually takes four semesters (24 months). Direct classroom and laboratory workshops are presented approximately once a month over an extended weekend (Friday through Tuesday).
Moreover, it is possible to participate in study visits of two weeks each at the co-operation universities in the U.S.A. These are the New England College of Optometry (Clinical Optometry) and the Pacific University (Vision Therapy, Pediatric Optometry, Sports Vision). These lectures, as well as the experience abroad, are strongly recommended.
The Master’s program offers the flexible choice of courses and core modules corresponding to the students’ interests. A least-score of various modules is required in order to graduate with the internationally recognized Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree (see the study conditions in the download section of this webpage).
