Graduate Program in Vision Science (MS, PhD)
Vision scientists study the eye and how we see as well as both the pathogenesis of visual dysfunction and the amelioration of visual disabilities. Vision science is multidisciplinary, and can include the study of biochemistry, biophysics, engineering, epidemiology, molecular biology, cell biology, neuroscience, optics, ophthalmology, optometry, pathology, physiology, psychology, statistics, and any other discipline that relates to the eye and its problems. Both the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees provide breadth through a variety of course offerings. The thesis based M.S. and Ph.D. degrees also add depth to the training of vision scientists through original research leading to a thesis or a dissertation.
