In an effort to bring out the variations in the polarization parameters of symbiotic stars that result from their binary character, polarimetry in R, I IR bands was initiated at the Byurakan station of the Leningrad University Observatory in 1974. In addition, U, B, V measurements for some stars have been made. Three telescopes have been used, with mirror apertures of 48, 48, 62 cm.
