Optics Minor

Students majoring in other disciplines may elect to minor in optical sciences by completing 12 units of approved College of Optical Sciences course work with a grade of B or higher. One College of Optical Sciences faculty member is required to serve on the minor student's oral comprehensive exam committee (faculty members with a joint appointment in the student’s major department are highly recommended). Study plans for students wishing to minor in optical sciences must be approved in advance by the associate dean for academic programs. In general, approval will be only given to plans in which at least nine of the 12 units are courses for which the College of Optical Sciences is the home department.
