    Course Description


    color we perceive when we view an object is influenced by several factors.
    These include the characteristics of the light source under which it
    is viewed, the way the object absorbs, transmits, or reflects the light
    waves striking it, the physical condition of the viewer’s eyes, and
    the psychology of the observer. Color is not a property that is a physical
    part of the things we see, it is simply the effect of light waves as
    they bounce off or pass through the object being viewed. If it were
    not for light, the objects around us would have no color.

    course begins with a brief description of light and how light behaves
    to produce color, and is followed by a discussion of the psychological,
    physiological, environmental, and circumstantial factors which influence
    color perception. It then goes on to cover some of the theories of color
    vision, and concludes with a survey of the color vision abnormalities.

    completion of this course the student should be able to:

    • Explain
      how light behaves to produce color
    • Describe the physiological,
      psychological, environmental, and circumstantial factors that affect
      color perception
    • Describe at least
      four of the theories of color vision
    • Explain our current
      understanding of color vision perception

    • Describe four categories of color vision deficiencies

    • Explain the subcategories of anomalous trichromasy and dichromasy.
