Paper Abstract

Upon its inception in 1964 as the Optical Sciences Center, only M.S. and Ph.D. degrees were offered, with a core curriculum consisting of five courses plus a few electives. Since then the Center has become a college within the University of Arizona, offering an ABET accredited BS degree in Optical Sciences and Engineering, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Optical Sciences, and a number of graduate certificates. The development of the curriculum for each of these degrees and certificates is discussed as well as how each curriculum attempts to meet the differing goals of the degrees offered.
