PROGRAM OF STUDIES

LEADING TO THE DEGREES OF BACHELOR OF ARTS AND BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

INTRODUCTION

The Organization of the Curriculum

The curriculum is divided into three major parts: Part I is prescribed and includes approximately half of the required credits for the degree; Part II is the field of concentration and requires one-fourth of the credits for a degree; Part III consists of grouped electives and covers approximately the last quarter of the requirements for the degree.

Principles of Development

(a) Irrespective of the vocational objective or the intellectual interests of students, there seems to be a common body of knowledge and of habits of thought and work which they should be expected to acquire. Upon this common foundation, all differentiation of study is based.

(b) The prescribed elements in the curriculum are further designed to enable thoughtful young men and women to explore various fields of human activity as an aid in finding their own interests and aptitudes.

(c) Large units of related study are given preference over single semester courses, valuable in themselves, but often devoid of vital interrelations and unifying purposes. Science survey, contemporary civilization, the development and appreciation of the forms of literature, art and music, five years of study of one foreign language when secondary and college studies are combined,- these are illustrations of large units of work. The concentration requirement is another large unit. It requires the completion of a series of graded and related courses totaling 32 credits or semester hours. These courses need not be taken in one subject or in one department. They must be closely related in content and purpose and designed to give the student mastery of the basic facts and the methods of thought in his field of specialization. It may be necessary, in order to round out a field of con-

centration, to prescribe more than 32 credits. Thus a student specializing in a science may be required to take basic courses in related sciences and in mathematics; a student specializing in English, to take basic courses in speech and in classical and modern foreign languages. These added prescriptions do not increase the length of the college course but reduce the area of electives, i.e., of Group III.

(d) Progress will be measured in most large units by achievement rather than by the completion of a set number of hours of attendance and study. Students will therefore be required to pass comprehensive examinations upon the completion of large units of work, in addition to the specific course examinations held at the end of each semester. The symbols, C.E., indicate the units of work in which comprehensive examinations are required.
