Thank you for considering the M.S. in Clinical Vision Research program at Nova Southeastern University. Our program provides a comprehensive curriculum that leads to a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Vision Research after one year of study, followed by a Master of Science in Clinical Vision Research degree. We take pride in offering a well-rounded approach that prepares our graduates to become leaders in the field. Please find all the information on admission requirements, procedures, and the application process below.
To be admitted to the MSCVR graduate program, applicants must fulfill one of the following requirements:
Applicants with a baccalaureate degree must submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. An average score in the 50th percentile or higher on the Optometry Admissions Test (OAT) or Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) may be substituted. Post-baccalaureate professional degree holders are exempt from the GRE requirement.
Note: Applicants who have earned a post-baccalaureate professional degree (O.D., D.O., M.D.) are not required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Applicants who do not meet these requirements may be considered for admission on a probationary status.
With careful planning, the entire program can be completed in as little as two years. Please note that the Graduate Certificate program must be completed within three years and the Master of Science program must be completed within six years of matriculation.
Up to 9 quarter credit hours of non-degree online coursework may be transferred to the Graduate Certificate or Master of Science program, if completed with a grade of 80 or better.
