The focus of the Health Science - Pre-Optometry Concentration major at Grace College and Seminary is to prepare motivated students for health-related graduate education; those students who aspire to provide health care for people through a variety of future careers. 

About

Ten different concentrations are available that will equip the student to apply to their targeted health science profession. At the heart of each concentration is the scientific study of life and life processes in the context of God being the creator and sustainer of all life and the entire physical universe beyond. 

In this Health Science - Pre-Optometry Concentration major at Grace College and Seminary, students will study the molecular composition, micro and macro anatomy, and metabolic processes of a wide variety of organisms, from bacteria to people. These studies emphasize laboratory, “hands-on” activities to explore technical details of these processes firsthand.

The concentrations available include courses for medical doctors (allopathic and osteopathic), chiropractors, dentists, veterinarians, physician’s assistants, pharmacists, physical or occupational therapists, optometrists and podiatrists. The course lists for these concentrations have been developed based on the core courses required by the majority of health science graduate programs in the specified area.
