This paper reports methods of obtaining the components of Faraday rotation tenser in anisotropic crystals, using longitudinal and transverse Faraday rotation along the optic axis. It is found that in crystals belonging to triclinic, monoclinic and orthorhombic symmetry, one can get 6 out of 9, 3 or 4 out of 5, and 2 out of 3 components respectively. In the case of uniaxial crystals only 1 component can be obtained. By measuring Faraday rotation in a randomly oriented polycrystal one more component in all the above classes can be obtained.
