About the Program

Adviser: Professor Dr. Emanuele Curotto

  • Preparation for Optometry combined program
  • Compatible for transfer students
  • Opportunities to study abroad at some of the top universities around the world

This specialized major is specifically designed for students in the Optometry combined program and is ranted only after acceptance into Salus University after three years at Arcadia, and completion of a year’s work at that institution.  Students in this program should consider planning their coursework so that a conventional major, probably in either chemistry or biology, might alternatively be completed by spending a fourth year at Arcadia.


(68 credits as listed below, with Undergraduate Curriculum requirements and electives to total 128.)

Course substitutions in keeping with a student’s intended career can be made with the approval of the program adviser.

One of the Following Courses in Biology or Chemistry:

Minimum of Four Electives
