Master of Science, Low Vision Rehabilitation (LVR)

Vision rehabilitation services help people who have recently lost vision, are blind, or have low vision to continue to live independently and maintain their accustomed quality of life. Rosemont College has partnered with Salus University to offer students a direct track to a Master’s of Science in Low Vision Rehabilitation (LVR).

Salus University offers a Master of Science (MS) degree program in Low Vision Rehabilitation.
