Understand how humans perceive and interact with color in a unique color science degree that has limitless applications.
The program revolves around the activities of the Munsell Color Science Laboratory, which is the pre-eminent academic laboratory in the country devoted to color science. Research is currently underway in color appearance modeling, lighting, image-quality, spectral-based image capture, archiving, reproduction of artwork, color management, computer graphics, AR/VR, and material appearance. The Munsell Laboratory has many contacts that provide students with summer and full-time job opportunities across the United States and abroad.
Program facilities equipment
The Munsell Color Science Laboratory and the Program of Color Science unite to form one of the world‘s foremost color science research and education organizations. Our mission is to provide world-class education, research, and outreach in all areas of color science including:
- Physical spectral and colorimetric measurements of materials and light sources.
- Understanding the capture, processing, and display of color and spectral power distributions.
- Quantifying the human sensation of color matches and the higher-level perceptions of color appearance and chromatic adaptation.
