The Southern California College of Optometry Master of Science in Vision Science program seeks to admit students possessing the qualities and motivation necessary for success in clinically applied research. Admission is based on an assessment of both academic and non-academic qualifications including; an application, letters of recommendation, personal statement and the admissions interview.
A part-time MS degree program is available. This applies to current SCCO full-time faculty, or to practitioners who desire to broaden their understanding and capabilities. Applications are accepted through May and are available to graduates of Accreditation Council on Optometric Education (ACOE) accredited optometry programs.
