|MadSci Network: Physics|
The first part of your question is hard to answer: there are lots and LOTS of colleges and universities which can give you a good education which includes the properties of fiber optics. I would prefer not to name any names in this reply, since I'm not an expert in the field, so I don't know the very best places. If you were simply to look for a list of colleges which have programs in "optics" or "photonics" in your local area, you would probably find 10 or 20 or 30 good candidates in a very short time. The second part of your question is easier: what major should you choose? I'd say that you are off to a good start: you will need to learn a lot of math and a lot of physics. Perhaps it might be reasonable for you to finish your Associates Degree -- that should take only two years, right? -- and then decide where you want to go next. Depending on the institution, you might choose math, or physics, or some sort of engineering major. Lots of math, and lots of science, especially physics. Just keep going!
