M.S. in Optical Sciences: Online

The Master of Science in Optical Sciences may be completed fully remotely as a distance student through Arizona Online.  This program is especially popular among workers in the optics industry who wish to continue their optics education while working full or part time.   

The application process for the M.S. in Optical Sciences Online is identical to that of our on-campus M.S. in Optical Sciences, with the exception that applicants for the online program should indicate that they will indicate on the application that they wish to be considered for the online program (online campus). 

  • The requirements for the M.S. in Optical Sciences Online are identical to those of our on-campus M.S. in Optical Sciences options.  (The M.S. emphasis in Quantum Information Sciences & Engineering is not yet able to be fully completed as an online program option.)
  • The Wyant College of Optical Sciences offers approximately 75 graduate courses each year.  Approximately 50 of these courses are available to be completed fully remotely.  In these courses, the on-campus lectures are given and recorded in special classrooms equipped with recording capabilities.  The recorded lectures are then uploaded later that day to website for viewing by remote students.
