UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 
GENERAL INFORMATION 

THE University of Maryland, in addition to being a State University, is 
the Land-Grant institution of Maryland. The University is co-educational 
in all of its branches. 

College Park 

The undergraduate Colleges and the Graduate School of the University of 
Maryland are located at College Park, Prince George's County, Maryland, on a 
beautiful tract of rolling, wooded land, less than eight miles from the heart 
of the Nation's capital, Washington, D. C. This nearness to Washington is of 
immeasurable advantage to students because of the unusual library facilities 
afforded by the Library of Congress and the libraries of United States Govern- 
mental Departments. Students also have the privilege of observing at close 
range sessions of the United States Supreme Court, the United States Senate 
and the House of Representatives and the opportunity of readily obtaining 
an abundance of factual data which are constantly being assembled by the 
numerous agencies of the Federal Government. 

The University is served by excellent transportation facilities, including 
the main line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and the Washington trans- 
portation system. The campus fronts on the Baltimore-Washington Boulevard, 
a section of U. S. Route No. 1, at the intersection of Maryland Route 193 
and is thus easily acessible by private travel. 

College Park and several adjacent residential communities provide homes 
for many of the members of the faculty and staff. Living accommodations at 
reasonable rates are available for students who live off campus. 

Baltimore 

The professional schools of the University — Dentistry, Law, Medicine, 
Nursing, and Pharmacy; the University Hospital; the Psychiatric Institute; 
and the Baltimore Program of the College of Special and Continuation Studies — 
are located in a group of splendid buildings, most of them erected in recent 
years, at or near the adjacent corners of Lombard, Greene and Redwood 
Streets, Baltimore, Maryland. 

Baltimore, a thriving, modem industrial city of more than a million in- 
habitants, has an old, established culture represented by outstanding educa- 
tional institutions, libraries, museums, parks, public buildings, and places of 
historical interest. 

Baltimore is proud of its well earned reputation as a center of the highest 
type of professional education, and no finer location could be chosen by a 
young man or woman desiring to prepare for a professional career.

GENERAL INFORMATION 9 

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY 

While its advancement in recent years, both in the matter of physical 
plant facilities and educational achievement, has been especially rapid, the 
University has behind it a long and honorable record. 

The history of the present University is the history of two institutions: 
the old privately-owned and operated University of Maryland in Baltimore, 
and the Maryland State College (formerly Maryland Agricultural College) 
at College Park. These institutions were merged in 1920 to form the present 
University of Maryland. 

In 1807 the College of Medicine of Maryland was organized, the fifth 
medical school in the United States. The first class was graduated in 1810. 
A permanent home was established in 1814-1815 by the erection of the 
building at Lombard and Greene Streets in Baltimore. This is the oldest 
structure in America devoted to medical teaching. Here was founded one 
of the first medical libraries (and the first medical school library) in the 
United States. In 1812 the General Assembly of Maryland authorized the 
College of Medicine of Maryland to "annex or constitute faculties of divinity, 
law, and arts and sciences," and the same act declared that the "college or 
faculties thus united should be constituted a university by the name and 
under the title of the University of Maryland." By authority of this act, 
steps were taken in 1813 to establish "a faculty of law," and in 1823 a 
regular school of instruction in law was opened. Subsequently there were 
added in 1882 a Department of Dentistry, which was absorbed in 1923 by 
the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery (founded in 1840, the first dental 
school in the world); in 1889 a School of Nursing; and in 1904 the Maryland 
College of Pharmacy (founded in 1841, the third oldest pharmacy college in 
the United States). 

The Maryland State College was chartered in 1856 under the name of the 
Maryland Agricultural College, the second agricultural college in the Western 
Hemisphere. For three years the College was under private management. In 
1862 the Congress of the United States passed the Land Grant Act. This 
act granted each state and territory that should claim its benefits a pro- 
portionate amount of unclaimed western lands, in place of scrip, the proceeds 
from the sale of which should be applied under certain conditions to the 
"endowment, support, and maintenance of at least one college where the 
leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific and classical studies, 
and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are 
related to agriculture and the mechanical arts, in such a manner as the 
Legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe, in order to promote 
the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the several 
pursuits and professions of life." This grant was accepted by the General 
Assembly of Maryland, and the Maryland Agricultural College was named 
as the beneficiary of the grant. Thus the College became, at least in part, a 
State institution. In the fall of 1914 control was taken over entirely by the 
State. In 1916 the General Assembly granted a new charter to the College 
and made it the Maryland State College. 



10 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

In 1920, by an act of the State Legislature, the University of Maryland 
was merged with the Maryland State College, and the resultant institution 
was given the name University of Maryland. 

OBJECTIVES OF THE UNIVERSITY 

Briefly summarized, the major objectives of the University of Maryland 
are (1) to prepare students in the arts, the humanities, the pure and applied 
sciences, agriculture, business and public administration, home economics, in- 
dustry, and for the professions; (2) to contribute to the civic, ethical, moral, 
cultural, spiritual and general welfare; (3) to provide general education in its 
broadest sense, both formal and informal, for all students who enroll; (4) to 
develop those ideals and finer relationships among students which characterize 
cultured individuals; (5) to conduct systematic research and promote creative 
scholarship; and (6) to offer special, continuation and extension education in 
communities where feasible. 

ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION OF THE UNIVERSITY 

The government of the University is, by law, vested in a Board of Regents, 
consisting of eleven members appointed by the Governor of Maryland, each 
for a term of nine years. The administration of the University is vested in 
the President. The Deans of the Colleges and Schools constitute a committee 
which serves in an advisory capacity to the President. 

Following is a list of the administrative divisions of the University.

State- Wide Activities 

The Agricultural and Home Economics Extension Service maintains local 
representatives in every county of the State. These representatives, County 
Agents and Home Demonstration Agents, provide expert assistance to farmers 
and farm families in their areas and, when necessary, call upon the large 
staff of specialists at the headquarters of the Extension Service at College 
Park. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 11 

The Live Stock Sanitary Service, which is charged with responsibility for 
the control and eradication of diseases of livestock and poultry, maintains 
local veterinary inspectors throughout the State, in addition to specialists 
and laboratory technicians at the main laboratory at College Park and ths 
branch laboratories in Salisbury, Centreville and Baltimore. 

PHYSICAL FACILITIES— GROUNDS, BUILDINGS, 
AND EQUIPMENT 

College Park 

The University owns approximately 2500 acres of land, of which 1115 are 
at College Park. The main campus, occupying about 300 acres, consists 
of a tract of rolling land surmounted by a commanding hill. Many of the 
buildings are located on or near this eminence. The grounds are attractively 
landscaped with trees and shrubbery. An additional 800 acres at College 
Park are devoted to research and teaching in horticulture, agronomy, ento- 
mology, dairying, livestock, agriculture, and poultry. In addition, there are 
five large areas in different parts of the State, totaling 1385 acres, which 
are used for agricultural research. 

The buildings have been consistently designed in a Georgian colonial 
style. There are seventy-five permanent principal buildings and an additional 
seventy for supplemental utility. Many of the permanent buildings were 
named in 1954, through action of the Board of Regents and with appropriate 
ceremonies to honor individuals who have contributed in some way to the 
growth of the institution. The total evaluation of buildings and equipment 
at College Park is in excess of fifty million dollars. (See map on pages 6 
and 7 for location of buildings.) 

In addition, two United States Government buildings are located on the 
campus. The Eastern Experiment Station of the United States Bureau of 
Mines has general laboratories which cooperate with the University in certain 
phases of advanced instruction. The Technological Research Laboratory of the 
United States Fish and Wildlife Service contains laboratories for research in 
fisheries dealing with chemical, chemical engineering, bacteriological, nutri- 
tional, and biological subjects. Under certain conditions graduate students 
may use the facilities of these laboratories. 

Baltimore 

The group of buildings located in the vicinity of Lombard and Greene 
Streets provides facilities for the Baltimore Division of the University, 
embracing the professional Schools and Hospital. The group is comprised of 
the original Medical School Building, erected in 1812; the Out-Patient Depart- 
ment formerly University Hospital; the new University Hospital, with 
approximately 450 beds; the Psychiatric Institute, an addition to University 
Hospital providing 200 additional general hospital beds and 90 beds for 
psychiatric cases; the Frank C. Bressler Building, for medical research; the 
Dental-Pharmacy Building, with dental clinics; the Nurses' Residence; the 
Law Building; Davidge Hall, the Medical Library; Gray Laboratory, housing 



12 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

medical laboratories and general offices; and the Administration Building. 
The Kelley Memorial, adjacent to University Hospital, is used jointly by the 
University and the Pharmaceutical Association. 

LIBRARY FACILITIES 

Libraries are located at both the College Park and Baltimore divisions of 
the University. They house in the aggregate over 300,000 bound and fully 
catalogued volumes, and they receive over 3500 periodicals. 

The University is now in the process of constructing at College Park a 
library that will house one million volumes, with reading rooms that will 
accommodate two thousand students. At the present time the collections on 
the campus are shelved in the General Library, the Chemistry, Engineering 
and Physical Sciences, Entomology, and Home Economics Libraries, as well 
as in other units. 

Facilities in Baltimore consist of the Libraries of the Schools of Dentistry 
and Pharmacy, containing 27,000 volumes; the School of Law, 30,000 volumes; 
the School of Medicine, 37,000 volumes; and the School of Nursing, 3200 vol- 
umes. The Medical Library is housed in Davidge Hall; the remaining three 
libraries have quarters in the buildings of their respective schools. Facilities 
for the courses in Arts and Sciences are offered jointly by the Libraries of 
the Schools of Dentistry and Pharmacy. Plans are in preparation for a new 
Medical Sciences Library. 

The University library system is able to supplement its reference service 
to graduate students and faculty by borrowing material through Inter-Library 
Loan. Within a short distance from College Park are located the excellent 
facilities of the Library of Congress, the Department of Agriculture, the 
Department of Education, and other agencies of the Federal Government. 

ADMISSION PROCEDURE 

Applicants from Secondary Schools: 

The high school student should make application for admission during 
his senior year. It is desirable to have the application sent to the Admissions 
Office as soon as possible after the mid-year grades are available. If the 
applicant is accepted, final high school grades must be sent to the Admissions 
Office from the high school principal. 

Time of Admission: 

New students should plan to enter the University at the beginning of 
the fall semester if possible. Students, however, will be admitted at the

ter and January 1 for the spring semester. If a student does not apply by 
these dates it may not be possible to process his application even if his 
records and recommendations are acceptable. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 13 

The student who wishes to live in a dormitory must submit an application 
much earlier than the above dates. There is a limit to the space available 
in dormitories. A woman student cannot be admitted to the University alter

......... .-.;•• . REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

Admission from secondary school is based upon evidence indicating the 
applicant's probable success in the program of his choice at the University. 
The applicant's entire secondary school record constitutes an important part 
of such evidence. 

Residents of Maryland: 

A graduate of an accredited secondary school in Maryland who is certified 
and recommended by his principal or headmaster will be admitted without 
examination, provided that his program has included the subjects required for 
.the college and curriculum which he wishes to enter. 

A graduate of an accredited secondary school in Maryland whose sec- 
ondary record indicates probable success in the University will be admitted 
without examination, provided that his program has included the subjects 
required for the college and curriculum which he wishes to enter, and pro- 
vided that he has a satisfactory general recommendation from his secondary 
school as to his character and ability. 

A graduate of an accredited secondary school of Maryland whose sec- 
ondary school preparation has not included the subjects necessary for the 
college and curriculum which he wishes to enter or whose academic per- 
' fOrmance has not been consistently satisfactory may be asked to take 
examinations to supplement his secondary school record. 

Examinations are given at College Park at stated intervals during the 
year. On the basis of the applicant's secondary school record and his per- 
formance on the examinations, he may be given a regular admission or he 
may be admitted on a trial status. 

The student who is admitted on a trial status receives special counselling 

and guidance for which a special fee is charged. He is required to take a 

limited program until he has demonstrated that he can do satisfactory work 

at the college level. He is not eligible for re-instatement if his college per- 

..formance during his first semester is unsatisfactory. 

Out-of-State Applicants: 

To be eligible for consideration for admission, the graduate of an accred- 
ited out-of-state secondary school should have attained college certification 



GENERAL INFORMATION 15 

grades in his college preparatory subjects, such grades to be not less than 
one letter grade higher than the passing grade. 

Transfer Students: 

A student must be in good standing as to scholarship and character to 
be eligible for transfer to the University. Advanced standing is assigned to 
a transfer student from an accredited institution under the following con- 
ditions: (1) A minimum of one year of resident work or not less than 30 
semester hours (including the meeting of all University and curricular 
requirements) is necessary for a degree; (2) The University reserves the 
right to make the assignment of transfer credit conditional upon the student's 
making a satisfactory record during his first semester at the University; 
(3) The University reserves the right to revoke advanced standing if the 
transfer student's progress is at any time unsatisfactory. 

Special Students: 

An applicant who is at least twenty-one years of age, and who has 
not completed the usual preparatory course, may be admitted to such courses 
as he seems qualified to take. A special student is ineligible to matriculate 
for a degree until he has satisfied the entrance requirements. 

Unclassified Students: 

An applicant who meets entrance requirements but who does not wish 
to pursue a program of study leading to a degree is eligible for admission 
to enroll in courses for which he has the prerequisites. 

SUBJECT REQUIREMENTS 

The high school or preparatory school student who intends to apply for 
admission to the University should plan his secondary school program care- 
fully. He should select a program that will prepare him adequately to begin 
college work at the college level. He should allow for the fact that his 
interests may change by selecting a secondary school program that will en- 
able him, when he enters the University, to have a maximum freedom of 
choice among the various curricula offered at the University. 

Every candidate for admission to the University must normally present 
sixteen units of high school subjects. It is required that seven of the minimum 
sixteen units be in college preparatory subjects as follows: 

English 4 units 

Mathematics (preferably Algebra) 1 unit 

History or Social Sciences 1 unit 

Biological or Physical Sciences 1 unit 

The other units should be chosen to give the student as strong a prepara- 
tion as possible for his work at the University. At least twelve of the units 



16 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

presented should be in college preparatory courses in academic subjects. 
Although there is no entrance requirement in foreign languages, two or more 
units are highly desirable for many programs and are suitable for all pro- 
grams. Likewise it is desirable that each student offer two units in history 
or social sciences, and two units in the biological and physical sciences. It 
is strongly recommended that all students present a unit of plane geom- 
etry in addition to the one or two units of algebra. 

The following preparatory program has been designed to give the pro- 
spective applicant great freedom of choice among the many curricula at the 
University. The student who successfully completes this program will be 
able to enter any curriculum at the University and to proceed without loss 
■of. time. 

English 4 units 

Mathematics 3 Ms units 

(algebra 2 units; plane geometry 1 unit; trigonometry 
Vz unit. Prospective engineering students should in- 
clude solid geometry % unit) 

History or Social Sciences 2 units 

Biological and Physical Sciences 2 units 

Foreign Language 2 units 

Unspecified 2% units 



16 units 



Deviation from these recommendations is permitted, but should be under- 
taken Only upon competent advice. An unwise selection of preparatory courses 
can effectively prevent the student from pursuing certain curricula at the 
University or materially increase the time necessary to complete a particular 
curriculum. Every prospective applicant should be certain that his prepara- 
tion in mathematics is adequate for any program he might conceivably wish 
to enter. A special fee will be charged for all remedial work in mathematics 
with the exception of the course in solid geometry. 

; . ,A well-planned program of college preparatory work contributes much 
to. i the -success of a student in his college work. This fact has an important 
bearing in estimating whether a candidate for admission is likely to be suc- 
cessful in his work at the University. 

The accompanying chart summarizes the specific requirements of the 
various curricula offered at the University.

GENERAL INFORMATION 23 

THE PROGRAM IN AMERICAN CIVILIZATION 

The University considers that it is important for every student to achieve 
an appreciative understanding of this country, its history and its culture. It 
has therefore established a comprehensive program in American Civilization. 
This program is also designed to provide the student with a general educa- 
tional background. 

Work in American Civilization is offered at three distinct academic levels. 
The first level is required of all freshmen and sophomores at the University 
and is described below. The second level is for undergraduate students wish- 
ing to carry a major in this field (see catalog for the College of Arts and 
Sciences). The third level is for students desh'ing to do graduate work in 
this field (see catalog for the Graduate School). 

All students receiving a baccalaureate degree from the University of 
Maryland must (except as specific exceptions are noted in printed curricula) 
obtain 24 semesters hours of credit in the lower division courses of the Ameri- 
can Civilization Program. Although the courses in the Program are prescribed 
generally, some choice is permitted, especially for students who demonstrate 
in classification tests good previous preparation in one or more of the required 
subjects. 

The 24 semester hours in American Civilization are as follows: 

1. English (12 hours, Eng. 1, 2 and 3, 4 or 5, 6), American History 
(6 hours, Hist. 5, 6), and American Government (3 hours, G. & P. 1) are re- 
quired subjects; however, students who qualify in one, two or all three of these 
areas by means of University administered tests are expected to substitute 
certain elective courses. Through such testing a student may be released 
from 3 hours of English (9 hours would remain an absolute requirement), 
3 hours of American History (3 hours remaining as an absolute requirement), 
and 3 hours of American Government. Students released from 3 hours of 
English will take Eng. 21 instead of Eng. 1 and 2. Those released from 
3 hours in History will take Hist. 56 instead of Hist. 5 and 6. Students who 
have been exempted from courses in English, History or American Govern- 
ment may not take such courses for credit. 

2. For the 3 additional hours of the 24 hours required, students in the 
College of Business and Public Administration elect one course from the fol- 
lowing group (Elective Group I): 

Economics 37, Fundamentals of Economics. (Not open to Fresh- 
men. Students who may wish to take additional 
courses in economics should substitute Economics 
31 for Economics 37.) 
Philosophy 1, Philosophy of Modern Man 
Sociology 1, Sociology of American Life 
(Students enrolled in the College of Business and Public Administration will 
normally meet this requirement by taking Economics 31 in the Sophomore 
year.) 

3. Students who, on the basis of tests, have been released from 3, 6 or 9 
hours in otherwise required coui-ses in English, American History or Ameri- 



24 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

can Government (see 1 above), shall select the replacements for these courses 
from any or all of the following groups: (a) more advanced courses in the 
same department as the required courses in which the student is excused, or 
(b) Elective Group I (see 2 above), provided that the same course may not 
be used as both a Group I and a Group II choice, or (c) Elective Group II. 
Group II consists of the following 3-hour courses: 

History 2, History of Modern Europe; either History 51 or 52, The Hu- 
manities; either Music 20, Survey of Music Literature or Art 22, History 
of American Art; Psychology 1, Introduction to Psychology; and Sociology 5, 
Anthopology.

FEES AND EXPENSES 

GENERAL 

All checks or money orders should be made payable to the University of 
Maryland for the exact amount of the charges. In cases where students have 
been awarded General Assembly Grants or University Grants, the amount of 
such grants will be deducted from the bill. 

All fees are due and payable at the time of registration, and students 
should come prepared to pay the full amount of the charges. No student will 
be admitted to classes until such payment has been made. A^eterans are 
required to comply with these conditions if the University does not have in 
its possession at the time of registration an approved Certificate of Eligibility 
and Entitlement from the Veterans Administration^ 

The University reserves the right to make such changes in fees and other 
charges as may be found necessary, although every effort will be made to 
keep the cost to the student as low as possible. 

No degree will be conferred, nor any diploma, certificate, or transcript of 
record issued to a student who has not made satisfactory settlement of his 
account. 

EXPLANATION OF FEES 

The Fixed Charges Fee is not a charge for tuition. It is a charge to help 
defray the cost of operating the University's physical plant, to pay adminis- 
trative and clerical expenses and other costs which ordinarily would not be 
included as a cost of teaching personnel and teaching supplies. 

The Athletic Fee is charged for the support of the Department of Inter- 
collegiate Athletics. All students are eligible and all students are encouraged 
to participate in all of the activities of this department and to attend all 
contests in which they do not participate. 

The Special Fee is used to pay interest on and amortize the cost of con- 
struction of the Student Union Building, the Activities Building, and the 
Swimming Pool. 

The Student Activities Fee is a mandatory fee included at the request 
of the Student Government Association. It covers subscription to the Diamond- 
back, student newspaper; the Old Line, literary magazine; the Terrapin, 
yearbook; class dues; and includes financial support for the musical and 
dramatic clubs and a cultural entertainment series. 

The Infirmary Fee is charged for the support of the Student Health 
Service but does not include expensive drugs or special diagnostic procedures. 
Expensive drugs will be charged at cost and special diagnostic procedures, 
such as x-ray, electro-cardiographs, basal metabolic rates, etc., will be charged 
at the lowest cost prevailing in the vicinity. 

Students who register for the second semester but not for the first

DEFINITION OF RESIDENCE AND NON-RESIDENCE 

Students who are minors are considered to be resident students if at the 
time of their registration their parents have been domiciled in the State of 
Maryland for at least one year. 

The status of the residence of a student is determined at the time of 
his first registration in the University and may not thereafter be changed 
by him unless, in the case of a minor, his parents move to and become legal 
residents of Maryland by maintaining such residence for at least one full 
year. However, the right of the minor student to change from a non-resident 
status to resident status must be established by him prior to the registration 
period set for any semester. 

Adult students are considered to be residents if at the time of their 
registration they have been domiciled in Maryland for at least one year 
provided such residence has not been acquired while attending any school or 
college in Maryland or elsewhere. 

The word "domicile" as used in this regulation shall mean the permanent 
place of abode. For the purpose of this rule only one domicile may be main- 
tained.

REGULATION OF STUDIES 

Schedule of Classes. A schedule of classes, giving days, hours, and rooms, 
is issued as a sepai'ate pamphlet at the beginning of each semester. Classes 
are scheduled to begin at 8:00 A. M. Instructions concerning registration 
procedures are given in the Schedule of Classes. 

Definition of Credit Unit. The semester hour, which is the unit of credit 
in the University, is the equivalent of a subject pursued one period a week 
for one semester. Two or three periods of laboratory or field work are equiva- 
lent to one lecture or recitation period. 

Examinations. Examinations are held at the end of each semester in 
accordance with the official schedule. Students are required to use the pre- 
scribed examination book during final examinations and tests if requested by 
the instructor. 

Marking System. The following symbols are used for marks: A, B, C, and 
D, passing; F, failure; I, incomplete. Mark A denotes superior scholarship; 
mark B, good scholarship; mark C, fair scholarship; and mark D, passing 
scholarship. At the graduate level, the grade of D is failure. 



48 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

A mark of X will be used on records of off-campus adult students in 
those cases where such a student has ceased to attend a class without an 
official withdrawal. A mark of X indicates no record, no prejudice, is terminal, 
and may not be later changed as in the case of the incomplete mark of I. 

In computing scholarship averages, the following numerical values are 
used: A— 4; B— 3; C— 2; D— 1; F— 0. 

Academic Regulations. A separate pamphlet entitled Academic Regula- 
tions is published each year, listing the regulations which govern the academic 
work and other activities of students. 

Grade Reports. Written reports of grades are sent by the Registrar at the 
close of the semester to parents or guardians of minor students who are not 
veterans. 

Junior Standing. The requirement for junior standing is, in addition to 
the required military and physical education courses, fifty-six (56) semester 
hours of academic credit, the whole program to be completed with an average 
grade of C. 

Delinquent Students. A student must attain passing marks in fifty per 
cent of the semester hours for which he is registered, or he is automatically 
dropped from the University. The Registrar notifies the student, his parent or 
guardian, and the student's Dean of this action. A student who has been 
dropped for scholastic reasons may appeal in writing to the Admissions 
Petition Board for reinstatement. The Board is empowered to make adjust- 
ments when desirable and when in accordance with policies governing rein- 
statement as published in Academic Regulations. 

The University reserves the right to request at any time the withdrawal 
of a student who cannot or does not maintain the required standard of scholar- 
ship, or whose continuance in the University would be detrimental to his or 
her health, or to the health of others, or whose conduct is not staisfactory to 
the authorities of the University. Students of the last class may be asked 
to withdraw even though no specific charge be made against them. 

According to University regulations, excessive absence from any course is 
penalized by failure in the course. Students who are guilty of persistent 
absence from any course will be reported to the President or to his appointed 
representative for final disciplinary action. 

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS 

Dormitories 

1. Room Reservations. All new students desiring to room in the dor- 
mitories should request room application cards by so indicating on their ap- 
plications for admission. The Director of Admissions will refer these appli- 
cations to the offices of the Dean of Men or the Dean of Women. Appli- 
cation cards or blanks will be sent to applicants and should be promptly 
returned to the proper office. A fee of $25.00 will be required, which will be 
deducted from the first semester room charges when the student registers. A 



GENERAL INFORMATION 49 

room is not assured until notice from the Dean concerned is received. Room 
reservations not claimed by freshmen and upperclassmen on their respective 
registration days will be cancelled. A room will be held by special request 
until after classes begin providing the dormitory offices are notified by the first 
day of registration. Room reservation fees will not be refunded if the can- 
cellation is received later than July 15 for the first semester. 

2. Applications for rooms are acted upon only when a student has been 
fully admitted academically to the University. 

3. (a) All undergraduate women except those who live at home or with 
close i-elatives are required to room in the University dormitories. 

(b) All male freshmen except those who live at home or with close rela- 
tives are required to room in the University dormitories when accommodations 
are available. 

4. Reservations by students in attendance at the University will be made 
during the last two weeks before the close of the spring semester. New stu- 
dents are urged to attend to their housing arrangements about three months in 
advance of registration. It is understood that all housing and board arrange- 
ments which are made for the fall semester are binding for the spring 
semester. 

Room and board charges begin with the evening meal pi'ior to the first 
day of the registration period and include the last day of classes for each 
semester, with the exception of the Christmas recess and the Easter recess. 
Students unable to make other arrangements for the holidays may consult 
the Dean of Men or the Dean of Women for assistance. 

Equipment. Students assigned to the dormitories should provide them- 
selves with sufficient single blankets, sheets, pillow cases, towels, a pillow, a 
laundry bag, a waste paper basket and a study lamp. The individual student 
assumes responsibility for all dormitory property assigned to him. Any dam- 
age done to the property, other than that which results from ordinary wear 
and tear, will be charged to the student concerned. Where individual responsi- 
bility for damage cannot be ascertained, the amount of the damage will be 
prorated among the occupants of the room or the dormitory in which the 
damage occurred. 

Each student will be furnished with a key for his room, for which a 
deposit of $1.00 will be made. The deposit will be returned in exchange for 
the key at the end of the student's stay at the University dormitory. 

Laundry. The University does not provide laundry service. Each student 
is responsible for his or her own laundry. There are several reliable laundry 
concerns in College Park, or if a student prefers, he may send his laundry 
home. It is also possible to make arrangements to rent towels and bed linens. 
Students may do laundry (not including bed linens) in the laundry rooms 
which are located in each dormitory. 

Personal Baggage. Baggage sent via the American Express and marked 



50 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

with the college housing address will be delivered when the student notifies 
the College Park Express Office of his arrival. 

Off-Campus Housing 

1. Men: Only upperclassmen and veterans are allowed to live in houses 
off the campus. A list of "off campus" rooms is available in the Office of the 
Dean of Men. 

2. Women: All housing arrangements for undergraduate women students 
must be approved by the Office of the Dean of Women. 

Estimated Expenses of "Off-Campus" Residence 

Most of the "off campus" houses have double rooms with twin beds and 
provide linens and towels. Some require the students to furnish their own bed 
linens. The price for a person in a double room is about $25.00 a month. 

Meals 

1. All students who live in University dormitories must board at the Uni- 
versity Dining Hall. No special diets may be furnished. Three meals are 
served daily and two on Sunday. 

2. Other students may make arrangements_ to board by the semester at 
the Dining Hall. Eating establishments are available in College Park. 
Lunches on school days may be obtained at the University cafeteria. Lunches, 
breakfast and Sunday suppers may be obtained at the Student Union. 

3. No rebate is made for meals not eaten at the University Dining Hall 
or in other places where board is paid for in advance. 

STUDENT LIFE AND WELFARE 

RELIGIOUS INFLUENCES 

The University recognizes its responsibility for the welfare of the stu- 
dents, not solely in their intellectual growth, but as human personalities, 
whose development along all lines, including the moral and religious, is in- 
cluded in the educational process. Pastors representing the major denomina- 
tional bodies assume responsibility for work with the students of their respec- 
tive faiths and have offices in the University Chapel. The chapel, one of the 
most beautiful structures of its kind, is on the campus for the use of all 
faiths. Church attendance is encouraged. 

A faculty committee on religious affairs and social service has as its prin- 
cipal function the stimulation of religious thought and activity on the campus. 
It brings noted speakers on religious subjects to the campus from time to 
time. The committee cooperates with the Student Religious Council and the 
student pastors and assists the student denominational clubs in every way that 
it can. Opportunities are provided for students to consult with pastors repre- 
senting the denominations of their choice. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 51 

"While there is no attempt to interfere with anyone's religious beliefs, the 
importance of religion is recognized officially and religious activities are 
encouraged. 

Denominational Clubs. Several religious clubs have been organized among 
the students for their mutual benefit and for participation in certain types of 
service. This year the list includes the Baptist Student Union, the Canterbury 
Club (Episcopal), Channing Fellowship (Unitarian), the Christian Science 
Club, the Friends' University Group, the Greek Orthodox Club, the Hillel 
Foundation (Jewish), Islamic Club, the Lutheran Club, the Maryland Chris- 
tian Fellowship, the Newman Club (Catholic), the Wesley Foundation (Method- 
ist), and the Westminster Foundation (Presbyterian). These clubs meet regu- 
larly for worship and discussion, and occasionally for social purposes. A 
pastor or a member of the faculty serves as adviser. 

COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE 

Office of the Dean of Men. The office of the Dean of Men exists for the 
purpose of furnishing friendly counsel and helpful guidance to male students in 
■connection with any of their personal problems, especially those related to 
social adjustment, financial need, employment, housing, etc. This office also 
handles for male students matters of discipline and infringement of University 
regulations. 

Office of the Dean of Women. The Office of the Dean of Women exists to 
furnish friendly counsel and helpful guidance to women students in connection 
■with their adjustment to college and with their personal problems. In addition, 
this office coordinates women's activities, approves chaperones for social func- 
tions, regulates sorority rushing in cooperation with the Panhellenic Asso- 
ciation, and advises the Women's Student Government Association. It has 
supervision over all housing accommodations for women students, whether on 
or off campus. A personal interview with one of the members of the staff is 
required of every woman student on entering and on leaving the University. 
All women students are invited to avail themselves of the services of this 
office. 

University Counseling Center. The University maintains a center where 
all students are encouraged to go for individual assistance on their vocational 
choices, personal problems, and educational progress. The University Coun- 
seling Center has a professionally qualified staff and has available an extensive 
selection of diagnostic devices for the analysis of interests, abilities, aptitudes, 
and adjustment. By virtue of the payment of the annual Advisory and Testing 
Fee all students are entitled to the professional services of this center without 
further charge. 

STUDENT HEALTH 

The University recognizes its responsibility for safeguarding the health of 
its student body and takes every reasonable precaution toward this end. All 
new undergraduate students are required to have a thorough physical exami- 



52 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

nation at the time of their entrance into the University. A well-equipped 
infirmary is available for the care of sick or injured students. A small fee 
is charged undergraduate students for this infirmary service, but this fee 
does not include expensive drugs and special diagnostic procedures. Gradu- 
ate students may secure this service by paying the Infirmary fee. 

Infirmary Service 

1. All undergraduate students and graduate students paying the fee, 
may receive dispensary service and medical advice at the infirmary during 
office hours established by the physician in charge. 

2. A registered nurse is on duty at all hours in the Infirmary for student 
care. Students are required to report illnesses during doctors' office hours 
unless the case is an emergency. 

3. Students entitled to infirmary service and not residing in their own 
homes may, upon order of the University physician, be admitted to the 
Infirmary and cared for to the extent of the facilities available. Students, 
living off the campus will be charged a subsistence fee. In case of illness 
requiring a special nurse, consultations, expensive drugs, x-rays or special 
tests, the extra expense must be borne by the student. 

4. Students living in dormitories, fraternity houses, sorority houses, or 
"off campus" houses who are too ill to go to the Infirmary must notify their 
housemother, proctor or householder, who in turn will notify the Infirmary. 
In all cases except emergencies, the physician in charge must be notified 
during office hours. 

5. When a student is admitted to the Infirmary and the illness is of a 
serious nature, parents will be promptly informed of the admission and of the 
progress of the student's condition. Visiting hours are 10 A. M. to 11 A. M. 
and 7 P. M. to 7:30 P. M. daily. Each patient is allowed only three visitors 
at one time. No visitor may see any patient until permission is granted 
by the doctor or nurse in charge. 

6. Hospitalization is not available at the Infirmary for faculty, graduate 
students, or employees. Emergency dispensary service, however, is available 
for faculty, graduate students, and employees who are injured in University 
service or University activities. 

Public Health. All dormitories, "off campus" houses, sorority, and fra- 
ternity houses are inspected periodically by the Student Health Service to 
insure that proper sanitary conditions are maintained and that kitchens meet 
the prescribed standards for cleanliness and sanitation. Ail food handlers 
will be examined in accordance with directives issued by the Student Health 
Service. 

Insurance. Group Accident Insurance furnished by a national company 
is available on a voluntary basis. Details and rates will be mailed to all 

students prior to registration. 

ATHLETICS AND RECREATION 

The University recognizes the importance of the physical development of 



GENERAL INFORMATION 53 

all students and, in addition to the required physical education for freshman 
and sophomores, sponsors a comprehensive intercollegiate and intramural pro- 
gram. Students are encouraged to participate in competitive athletics and to 
learn the skill of games that may be carried on after leaving college. The 
intramural program, which covers a large variety of sports, is conducted by 
the Physical Education Department for both men and women. 

The Council on Intercollegiate Athletics sponsors and supervises a full 
program of intercollegiate athletics in every form necessary to meet the needs 
of the student body. By keeping this program in proper bounds, it becomes 
an incidental feature of University life. Each student is encouraged to par- 
ticipate in the program, either as an athlete or as a spectator. A strong inter- 
collegiate program creates the incentives for extensive participation in the 
intramural program and, further, the program furnishes a rallying point of 
common interest for students, alumni, and faculty. 

The University is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic Association, the United States Intercollegiate La- 
crosse Association, the Intercollegiate Amateur Athletic Association of 
America, and cooperates with other national organizations in the promotion 
of amateur athletics. 

The University has an activities building which contains a modern gym- 
nasium, a swimming pool, training facilities for indoor sports, physical educa- 
cation laboratories, and an arena; a large armory; a modern stadium with a 
running track; a number of athletic fields; tennis courts; baseball diamonds; 
and a gymnasium and swimming pool for women. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

The following description of student activities covers those of the under- 
graduate divisions at College Park. The catalogs of the Baltimore Schools 
also include descriptions of student activities. 

Regulation of Student Activities. The association of students in organized 
bodies for the purpose of carrying on voluntary student activities in orderly 
and productive ways is recognized and encouraged. All organized student 
activities are under the supervision of the Committee on Student Life and 
Activities. Such organizations are formed only with the consent of the 
Committee on Student Life and Activities and the approval of the President. 
Without such consent and approval no student organization which in any way 
represents the University before the public, or which purports to be a 
University organization or an organization of University students, may 
use the name of the University in connection with its own name, or in con- 
nection with its members as students. 

Student Government 

The Student Government Association consists of all the students and is 
the instrument for student government. It operates under an approved con- 
stitution and bylaws. Its officers are the president, vice president, secretary, 
and treasurer. 



54 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Executive Council 

The Executive Council is the over-all student governing body which per- 
forms the executive duties incident to managing student affairs and works in 
cooperation with the Committee on Student Life and Activities. It consists 
of seventeen student members representing the various phases of University 
life. 

Associated Women Students

Dean of Women, handles matters pertaining to women students. 

Men's League 

The Men's League, in cooperation with the Office of the Dean of Men,

Committee on Student Life and Activities 

The Committee on Student Life and Activities, a faculty committee 
having student membership, keeps in close touch with all conditions and 
activities, excepting classroom work, that affect the student and, acting in an 
advisory capacity, endeavors to improve any unsatisfactory conditions that 
may exist. 

Two pamphlets, Academic Regulations, and General Regulations, issued 
annually and distributed to the students in the fall, contain full information 
concerning student matters as well as a statement of the rules of the Uni- 
versity. 

Eligibility to Represent the University. Only students in good standing 
are eligible to represent the University in extra-curricular activities. In 
addition various student organizations have established certain other require- 
ments. To compete in varsity athletics a student must pass the required 
number of hours as determined by the Athletic Council. 

Discipline. In the government of the University, the President and faculty 
rely chiefly upon the sense of responsibility of the students. The student who 
pursues his studies diligently, attends classes regularly, lives honorably, and 
maintains good behavior meets this responsibility. In the interest of the 
general welfare of the University, those who fail to maintain these standards 
are asked to withdraw. Students are under the direct supervision of the Uni- 
versity only when on the campus or attending an approved function repre- 
senting the University. They are responsible to the University for their 
conduct wherever they may be.

GENERAL INFORMATION 57 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 

Four student publications are conducted under the guidance of a faculty 
adviser and the general supervision of the Committee on Student Publications 
and Communications. The Diamondback, a newspaper, summarizes the Uni- 
versity news and provides a medium for the discussion of matters of interest 
to the students and the faculty. The Terrapin, the yearbook, is a reflection 
of campus activities, serving to commemorate the principal events of the 
college year. The Old Line is a magazine of literature, humor and art, pub- 
lished periodically. The M Book is a handbook for incoming students and is 
designed to acquaint them with University life. 

STUDENTS' SUPPLY STORE 

For the convenience of students, the University maintains a Students' 
Supply Store, located in the basement of the Student Union Building, where 
students may obtain at reasonable prices textbooks, classroom materials and 
equipment. The store also carries jewelry, stationery, fountain pens and 
novelty items. This store is operated on a basis of furnishing students needed 
books and supplies at as low a cost as practicable, and profits, if any, are turned 
into the general University treasury to be used for promoting general stu- 
dent welfare. Because of heavy demand for textbooks at the beginning of 
each semester, the student should purchase required textbooks during registra- 
tion week. 

UNIVERSITY POST OFFICE 

The University operates an office for the reception, dispatch, and delivery 
of United States mail including Parcel Post packages, and for inter-office 
communications. This office is located in the basement of the Student Union 
Building. The campus post office is NOT A PART OF THE UNITED STATES 
POSTAL SYSTEM and no facilities are available for sending or receiving 
po6tal money orders. Postage stamps, however, may be purchased. United 
States mail is received at 8:30 A.M. and 3:15 P.M. and dispatched at 11:15 
A.M. and 3:45 P.M. daily, except that on Saturdays, mail is dispatched at 
11:15 A.M. only. Special schedules are announced for University departments 
at holiday periods. Only University official, registered and insured incoming 
and outgoing mail is handled by the University Post Office. Students pick 
up all registered and insured mail at the College Park Post Office. 

Each student in the University is assigned a Post Office box at the 
time of registration, for which a small fee is charged. Also, boxes are pro- 
vided for the various University offices. Students may have access to their 
Post Office boxes from 7:30 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. One of the major reasons for 
the operation of the Post Office is to provide a convenient method by which 
deans, teachers and University officials may communicate with students. 
Students are therefore expected to call for their mail daily, if possible, in 
order that such communications may come to their attention promptly. 



58 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

It will be the responsibility of fraternities, sororities, and all clubs which 
mail more than ten pieces of mail at one time, intended for students, to insert 
their own mail, after obtaining permission from the Postmaster. 

ALUMNI 

The Alumni Council, composed of representatives from the schools and 
colleges of the University — one from the M Club and one from each area 
Alumni Club — coordinates all general alumni interests and activities. The 
Council membership includes three representatives from each of the organized 
alumni associations for the Schools and Colleges of Agriculture, Arts and 
Sciences, Business and Public Administration, Dentistry, Education, Engineer- 
ing, Home Economics, Law, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy. 

Council activities include the alumni publication, Maryland; a scholarship 
program; and an annual Homecoming at College Park. Membership in the 
University of Maryland Alumni Association is automatic through affiliation 
with one of the school and college organizations. Each school and college 
Alumni Association exerts an active interest in the welfare of its respective 
graduates and of the University. Objectives of the general Association include 
the promotion of the interests and welfare of the University and efforts to 
further mutually beneficial relatione between the University, the people of 
Maryland, and the alumni. 

Maryland, a bi-monthly magazine issued by the Alumni Association, pub- 
lishes articles of general interest, feature articles written by faculty members 
and alumni, campus news, and sports news.

EDUCATION 



"E 1 



means teaching them to behave as they do not behave. It is not teach- 
ing the youth the shapes of the letters and the tricks of numbers, and then 
leaving them to turn their arithmetic to roguery and their literature to lust. 
It means, on the contrary, training them into the perfect exercise and kingly 
continence of their bodies and souls. It is painful, continual and difficult work 
to be done by kindness, by watching, by warning, by precedent, and by praise, 
but above all — by example." — John Ruskin. 



"In our country no man is worthy the honored name of statesman, who 
does not include the highest practicable education of the people in all his 
plans of administration." — Horace Mann. 



"Promote, then, as an object of primary importance institutions for the 
general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government 
gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be 
enlightened." — George Washington. 



"The good education of youth has been esteemed by wise men in all ages 
as the surest foundation of the happiness both of private families and of com- 
monwealths." — Benjamin Franklin. 



"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole 
people and be willing to bear the expense of it." — John Adams. 



"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it 
expects what never was and never will be." — Thomas Jefferson. 



"A popular government without popular information or the means of ac- 
quiring it, is but the prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both." 

James Madison 



"An educated man is never poor and no gift is more precious than 
education." — Abraham Lincoln. 



"Without popular education no government which rests on popular action 
can long endure; the people must be schooled in the knowledge and in the 
virtues upon which the maintenance and success of free institutions depend." 

■ — Woodrow Wilson 



"We have faith in education as the foundation of democratic government." 

— Franklin D. Roosevelt

COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE 17 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE 

Gordon M. Cairns, I^h.D., Dean 
Paul R. Poffenberger, Ph.D., Assistant Dean — Instruction 

THE College of Agriculture offers both general and specialized training 
for students who wish to prepare for professional work in the broad field 
of agricultural endeavor. The students receive basic fundamental and 
cultural education, correlated with technical agricultural courses and the re- 
lated sciences. In addition the college aims to train the students in a way that 
enables them to take responsible positions in agricultural and allied industries. 
Students come from both rural and urban areas. Farm-reared students enter 
either general or specialized curricula; non-farm reared students tend to 
follow the specialized programs. 

History 

The College of Agriculture is the oldest division of the University of 
Maryland at College Park. The institution was chartered in 1856 under the 
name of the Maryland Agricultural College. For three years the College was 
under private management. When Congress passed the Land Grant Act 
in 1862, the General Assembly of Maryland accepted it for the State and 
named the Maryland Agricultural College as the beneficiary. When the 
institution was merged in 1920 with the University of Maryland in Baltimore, 
the College of Agriculture took its place as one of the major divisions of 
this larger, more comprehensive organization. 

In addition to teaching, the College of Agriculture includes the Agri- 
cultural Experiment Station and the Extension Service. They were estab- 
lished as the result of acts passed by Congress in 1887 and 1914 respectively. 
A more complete description of these two services appears later in this 
bulletin. 

General 

Curricula in the College of Agriculture provide for broad training in 
cultural and scientific courses as well as in courses related to various areas 
of agricultural specialization. Programs are offered for those planning 
to pursue general farming, livestock production, dairying, poultry hus- 
bandry, fruit or vegetable growing, floriculture or ornamental, horticulture, 
field crop production, or scientific activities related to agriculture, i.e., 
agricultural education, engineering, economics and chemistry. In addition 
students are trained in the various areas of food processing, for employment 
in agricultural business and industry or with a local, state or federal agency. 

Many teachers also conduct research studies in their respective fields. 
Through these studies the frontiers of knowledge are constantly being ex- 
tended. These new findings are incorporated in courses thereby making the 
instruction in agriculture dynamic. 



18 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

The close relationship of extension specialists, county agents, and home 
demonstration agents with farmers and farm families enables workers in 
the College to evaluate the farm situation. New farm problems are brought 
to the attention of the research worker and new developments are presented 
to farmers and their families through practical demonstrations. 

The coordination of teaching, research and extension provides for the 
effective training of students in the College of Agriculture for a career 
in agriculture. Many teachers also contribute to the research and extension 
programs concerned with agriculture and food production, the development of 
new varieties and processing procedures, as well as adjustments in agri- 
cultural production and marketing. 

Trained workers in the College of Agriculture, through regulatory and 
service activities, are constantly working with actual problems associated 
with the improvement and maintenance of standards for farm products. 
Regulatory and control work extends over a wide range of activities and is 
concerned with reducing losses due to insect pests and diseases; preventing 
and controlling serious outbreaks of diseases and pests of animals and 
plants; analyzing fertilizer, feed and lime for guaranteed quality; and 
analyzing and testing germination quality of seeds to insure better seeds 
for farm planting. Marketing services include federal-state inspection, 
fresh egg law, dairy inspection, seed inspection, weight and measures and 
market news service. 

Special Advantages 

The University of Maryland is within a few miles of the Agricultural 
Research Center of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This is the largest, 
best manned, and best equipped agriculture research agency in the world. 
Also, the University of Maryland, is within a few miles of the Washington 
D. C, offices of the U. S. Department of Agriculture and other government 
departments, including the Library of Congress. Students can easily visit 
these agencies and become acquainted with their work and the men who 
conduct this work. Such contacts have already proved valuable to many 
University of Maryland graduates. 

Also, it is not uncommon for men from these agencies to speak before 
classes at the University and to be guest speakers at student club meetings and 
otherwise take part in student activities. No other college of agriculture in 
the United States is physically located to offer like opportunities to its 
students. 

Coordination of Agricultural Work 

The strength of the College of Agriculture of the University of Maryland 
lies in the close coordination of the instructional, research, extension, and regu- 
latory functions within the individual departments, between the several 
departments, and in the institution as a whole. Instructors in the several 
departments are closely associated with the research, extension and regulatory 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE 19 

work being carried on in their respective fields, and in many cases, devote a 
portion of their time to one or more of these types of activities. Close coordin- 
ation of these four types of work enables the University to provide a stronger 
faculty in the College of Agriculture, and affords a higher degree of 
specialization than would otherwise be possible. It insures instructors an 
opportunity to keep informed on the latest results of research, and to be 
constantly in touch with current trends and problems which are revealed in 
extension and regulatory activities. Heads of departments hold staff confer- 
ences to this end, so that the student at all times is as close to the develop- 
ments in the frontiers of the several fields of knowledge as it is possible for 
an organization to put him. 

In order that the work of the College shall be responsible to agricultural 
interests and shall adequately meet the needs of the several agricultural in- 
dustries in the State, and that the course of instruction shall at all times be 
made most helpful for students who pursue them, Advisory Councils have 
been constituted in the major industries of agriculture. The Councils are 
composed of leaders in the respective lines of agriculture in Maryland, and 
the instructional staff of the College of Agriculture has the benefit of their 
council and advice. By this means the College, the industries, and the students 
are kept abreast of developments. 

Facilities and Equipment 

In addition to buildings, laboratories, libraries, and equipment for effective 
instruction in the related basic sciences and in the cultural subjects, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland is provided with excellent facilities for research and in- 
struction in agriculture. University farms, totaling more than 1,000 acres, 
are operated for instructional and investigational purposes. One of the most 
complete and modern plants for dairy and animal husbandry work in the 
country, together with herds of the principal breeds of dairy and beef cattle, 
and other livestock, provides facilities and materials for instruction and 
research in these industries. Excellent laboratory and field facilities are 
available in the Agronomy Department for breeding and selection in farm 
crops, and for soils research. The Poultry Department has a building for 
laboratories and classrooms, a plant comprising twenty acres, and flocks of 
the important breeds of poultry. The Horticulture Depai'tment is housed 
in a separate building, and has ample orchards and gardens for its various 
lines of work. 

Departments and Curricula 

Departments in the College of Agriculture and their curricula are as 
follows: Agricultural Economics and Marketing; Agricultural Education and

curricula in Agricultural Chemistry and General Agriculture. Courses of 
study may also be arranged for any who desire to return to the farm after one 
or more years of training in practical agricultural subjects. 

Admission 

All students desiring to enroll in the College of Agriculture must apply to 
the Director of Admissions of the University of Maryland at College Park. 

In selecting students more emphasis will be placed upon good marks and 
other indications of probable success in college rather than upon a fixed pat- 
tern of subject matter. In general, 4 units of English and 1 unit each of 
Social, Biological and Natural Sciences are required. One unit each of Algebra 
and Plane Geometry are necessary for certain curricula and desirable for all. 
While Foreign Language is desirable for certain programs, no Foreign 
Language is required for entrance. Fine Arts, Trade and Vocational subjects 
are acceptable as electives.

with teams from other state universities or agricultural colleges. 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE 23 



Student Advisers 



Each student in the College of Agriculture is assigned to a faculty adviser, 
either departmental or general. Departmental advisers consist of heads of 
departments or persons selected by them to advise students with curricula in 
their respective departments. General advisers are selected for students who 
have no definite choice of curriculum in mind, or who wish to pursue the 
general curriculum in agriculture. 

Elect ives 

The electives in the suggested curricula which follow affords opportunity 
for those who so desire to supplement major and minor fields of study or to 
add to their general training. 

With the advice and consent of those in charge of his registration, a 
student may make such modifications in his curriculum as are deemed advisable 
to meet the requirements of his particular need. 

Farm and Laboratory Practice 

The head of each department will help to make available opportunities for 
practical or technical experience along his major line of study for each stu- 
dent whose major is in that department and who is in need of such experience. 
For inexperienced students in many departments this need may be met by 
one or more summers spent on a farm. 

Freshman Year 

The program of the freshman year in the College of Agriculture is the 
same for all curricula of the College. Its purpose is to afford the student an 
opportunity to lay a broad foundation in subjects basic to agriculture and the 
related sciences, to articulate beginning work in college with that pursued in 
high or pi'eparatory schools, to provide opportunity for wise choice of programs 
in succeeding years, and to make it possible for a student before the end of 
the year to change from one curriculum to another, or from the College of 
Agriculture to the curriculum in some other college of the University with 
little or no loss of credit. 

Students entering the freshman year with a definite choice of curriculum 
in mind are sent to departmental advisers for counsel as to the wisest selec- 
tion of freshmen electives from the standpoint of their special interests and 
their probable future programs. Students entering the freshman year with 
no definite curriculum in mind, are assigned to a general adviser, who assists 
with the choice of freshman electives and during the course of the year ac- 
quaints the students with opportunities in the upper curricula in the College of 
Agriculture and in the other divisions of the University. If by the close of the 
freshman year a student makes no definite choice of a specialized curriculum, 
he continues under the guidance of his general adviser in the General Agri- 
culture Curriculum.

■■27 



Farming is a business, as well as a way of life, and as such demands for 
its successful conduct the use of business methods; the keeping of farm 
business records, analyzing the farm business, and of organizing and operating 
the farm as a business enterprise. It requires knowledge of farm resources 
and taxation, methods of financing agricultural production and marketing, 
including agencies involved, services rendered and the cost of getting products 
from the producer to the consumer through cooperative and private agencies.

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION AND RURAL LIFE 

The primary objective of this curriculum is to prepare students for teach- 
ing vocational agriculture. It also prepares them for work as county agents 
and allied lines of the rural educational services. Graduates are in demand 
in rural businesses, particularly of the cooperative type; a number have 
entered the Federal service; others are engaged in teaching and research in 
agricultural colleges; quite a few have returned to the farm as owner- 
managers. 

Courses in extension methods are included in agricultural education. They 
are especially designed for students who wish to train for extension work, as 
well as others who wish to learn more about how the extension service oper- 
ates. Agricultural education majors, as well as others, are urged to take 
these courses if they can possibly fit them into their curriculum. 

In addition to the regular entrance requirements of the University, 
involving graduation from a standard four-year high school, students electing 
the agricultural education curriculum must present evidence of having 
acquired adequate farm experience after reaching the age of fourteen years. 

All students following this curriculum are required to attend meetings 
of the Collegiate Chapter of the future Farmers of America during their 
junior and senior years in order to gain needed training to serve as advisers 
of high school chapters of FFA upon graduation. Freshmen and sophomore 
agricultural education majors are also urged to become members of the FFA 
and to participate in the activities of the organization.

AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING 

The department offers to students of agriculture training in those agri- 
cultural subjects which are based upon engineering principles. These subjects 
may be grouped under five heads: farm machinery and farm power, farm 
buildings, soil and water practices related to engineering and rural electri- 
fication. 

Five-Tear Program in Agriculture — Engineering 

For those students who wish to specialize in the application of engineering 
principles to the physical and biological problems of agriculture there is 
offered a combined program, extending over a five-year period, arranged 
jointly by the College of Agriculture and the College of Engineering, and 
leading to a degree from each of these colleges. 

This program prepares graduates to enter state, federal or commercial 
fields of activity in such work as soil and water conservation, rural electrifi- 
cation design and sale of farm machinery and structures, and in the develop- 
ment of new uses for farm products and the profitable utilization of farm 
wastes and by-products. 

To be properly trained in these fields a student needs a broader knowledge 
of basic and applied engineering principles than could be provided in a four- 
year course in agriculture. He also needs a broader training in the funda- 
mentals of agriculture than a standard four-year course in engineering could 
furnish. 

Upon completion of the normal four-year course of study the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Agriculture is granted. For the fifth year the student 
registers in the College of Engineering, and at the end of that year, upon 
satisfactory completion of the required course of study, receives a degree in 
civil, electrical, mechanical or chemical engineering. 



tMajors in agricultural education -will also be required to take R. Ed. 104, Practice 
Teaching, four credits (or its equivalent), to be arranged in a four-week period prior to 
the opening of the University of Maryland In the fall of their senior year.

BOTANY 

The department offers three major fields of work; plant morphology and 
taxonomy; plant pathology; or plant physiology and ecology. The required 
courses for the freshman and sophomore years are the same for all students. 
In the junior and senior years, the student elects botany courses to suit his 
particular interest. Courses are required in other subjects to contibute toward

a broad cultural education, and to support the courses selected in the chosen 
field of botany. 

Though cooperation with the College of Education, students who wish to 
meet the requirements for the state high school teacher's certificates, may 
elect the necessary work in education. 

The curriculum as outlined, provides a complete survey of the field of 
botany for prospective high school teachers, and lays a good foundation for 
graduate work in botany in preparation for college teaching and for research 
in state or federal experiment stations, or in private research laboratories. 

Students are also afforded an opportunity for training for other vocations 
involving various botanical applications, such as extension work, and positions 
with seed companies, canning companies and other commercial concerns.

DAIRY 

The Dairy Department offers instruction in two major lines of work; 
dairy husbandry and dairy technology. In the dairy husbandry curriculum, 
students are given technical and practical training in the breeding, feeding, 
management, and selection of dairy cattle and in milk production. With suit- 
able choice of courses, students are qualified as operators of dairy farms, for 
breed promotion and sales work, or employment with private and co- 
operative business organizations, and for county agent work. The dairy 
technology curriculum is designed to prepare students for practical and sci- 
entific work concerned with the processing and distribution of milk, manu- 
facture and handling of butter, cheese, ice cream, and other products, in dairy 
plant operation and management, and in dairy inspection and quality control. 
Students satisfactorily majoring in dairy technology are qualified for the many 
technical and applied positions in the various branches of the dairy industry. 

By careful election of courses in either curriculum the student may lay a 
foundation for advanced study, for instructional work in colleges, and for 
research in experiment stations or commercial laboratories. The suggested 
curricula will be modified to meet the special needs of individual students.

Pre-Forestry Students 

The College of Agriculture is glad to cooperate with any student who 
wishes to attend the University to pursue courses which may be transferred 
to a standard forestry curriculum in another institution. The program which 
a student follows depends to some extent upon the forestry college he plans 
to enter. All pre-forestry students in the College of Agriculture are sent to 
the Department of Botany of the University for counsel and advice in these 
matters. 



♦Students planning to pursue this curriculum should elect P. H. 1, the first semester 
of the Freshman year. If Agron. 1 is not elected in the Freshman year, it must be 
elected in a subsequent year. 

♦♦Required of students specializing in poultry genetics, physiology, or nutrition.

Pre-Theological Students 

The College of Agriculture is glad to cooperate with the officers of any 
theological seminary who desire to urge its prospective students to pursue 
courses in agriculture as a preparation for the rural ministry. Such pre- 
theological students may enroll for a semester or more or for the usual four 
year training of the College. In either case they should enroll as members 
of the general curriculum in the College of Agriculture. 

The electives of this curriculum may be used for such pre-theological 
requirements as seem desirable. Elections may be made from any of the 
offerings of the University such as history, political science, philosophy, agri- 
cultural economics, rural sociology, modern language, English, economics, 
psychology, sociology, natural science, education and the like. Students 
desiring to pursue a pre-theological program in the College of Agriculture 
of the University of Maryland, should consult with the president or admissions 
officer of the theological seminary which they expect to attend. 



Pre- Veterinary Students 

The College of Agriculture is glad to cooperate with any student who 
wishes to attend the University to pursue preparation for the study of Veterin- 
ary Science. The curriculum which a student will follow will depend to 
some extent upon the Veterinary College which he plans to enter. All Pre- 
Veterinary students in the College of Agriculture are sent to the Head of 
the Department of Veterinary Science of the University for counsel and 
advice in these matters. 



Special Students in Agriculture 

Mature students may, with consent of the Dean, register as special stu- 
dents and pursue a program of studies not included in any regular curriculum, 
but arranged to meet the needs of the individual. All university fees for these 
special students are the same as fees for regular students. 

There are many young farmers who desire to take short intensive courses 
in their special lines of work during slack times on the farm. Arrangements 
have been made to permit such persons to register at the office of the Dean of 
the College of Agriculture and receive cards granting them permission to visit 
classes and work in the laboratories of the different departments. This op- 
portunity is created to aid florists, poltrymen, and fruit-growers, gardeners, or 
other especially interested persons who are able to get away from their work 
at some time during the year. 

The regular charges are $10.00 for matriculation and $2.00 per credit 
hour per month for the time of attendance. One matriculation is good for 
any amount of regular or intermittent attendance during a period of four 
years.

AGRICULTURAL, EXTENSION, RESEARCH AND 
REGULATORY AGENCIES 

EXTENSION SERVICE 

Paul E. Nystrom, Director 

Cooperative Extension work in agriculture and home economics, estab- 
lished by State and Federal Laws in 1914, is designed to assist the people of 
the State with their agricultural and homemaking problems. It is conducted 
under a Memorandum of Understanding between the Extension Service of the 
University of Maryland and the U. S. Department of Agriculture. The Ex- 
tension Service becomes the educational arm in the State of the U. S. 
Department of Agriculture. 

The work of the Extension Service is cooperatively financed by the 
Federal, State and county governments. In each county there is a County 
Agricultural Agent and Home Demonstration Agent and assistants where 
funds permit and the work requires. Backed by a staff of specialists at the 
University, these Agents are in close contact with local people and their 
problems. 

Practically every phase of agriculture and home life comes within the 
scope of Extension work. The Extension Service teaches largely by demon- 
strations and carries the scientific and economic results of the Experiment 
Station and Department of Agriculture to rural people in ways that they 
understand and use. 

In Maryland, the Extension Service works in close association with all 
rural groups and organizations. In addition to work on the farms and in 
the farm homes, the Extension program is aimed at the many rural and 
even urban people who service the agricultural industries of the State 
including consumers. Thousands of boys and girls are developed as leaders 
and given practical education in 4-H Clubs. 

In addition to work with adults, thousands of boys and girls are developed 
as leaders and given practical education in 4-H Clubs. Through their diversi- 
fied activities, the boys and girls are given a vauable type of instruction and 
training, and ai'e afforded an opportunity to develop self-confidence, perse- 
verance and citizenship. 

The Extension Service in cooperation with the College of Agriculture 
and the Experiment Station arranges and conducts short courses in various 
lines, many of which are held at the University. Some of these courses have 
been held regularly over a period of years and others are added as the need 
and demand develop. 

Canners' Short Course 

For many years a short course has been held each year to aid canners in 
keeping abreast of the latest developments in their industry. It is usually held 
in February. 



84 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Kural Women's Short Course 

To provide special training for rural women, the Rural Women's Short 
Course has been conducted since 1922. Attendance, extending for one week, 
has grown steadily to more than one thousand women from all counties and 
includes urban women from Baltimore City. 

Other Short Courses 

Courses for nurserymen, florists, poultry flock selection agents, poultry 
products marketing, beekeepers, greenkeepers, sanitarians, conservation, and 
cow testers are among those held in recent years. Announcement of such 
courses is made to those who may be interested. 

Boys' and Girls' Club Week 

Members and leaders of boys' and girls' 4-H Clubs come to the University 
for a week each year, usually in August. Class work and demonstrations 
are given by specialists and a broad program of education, inspiration and 
recreation is provided. 



THE AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATION 

Irvin C. Haut, Ph.D., Director 

The Agricultural Experiment Station serves Maryland agriculture in 
much the same manner as research laboratories serve large corporations. 
Maryland agriculture is made up of forty thousand small individual busi- 
nesses, and there is not sufficient capital, or sufficient income so that each one 
of these can conduct research. Yet the problems which face a biologocal 
undertaking such as farming, are as numerous and perplexing as the prob- 
lems of any business. Certainly our production of food would be much more 
costly if it were not for the research results that have been obtained by the 
Agricultural Experiment Station. 

The station is a joint Federal and State undertaking. Passage of the 
Hatch Act in 1887, which made available a grant in aid to each state for 
the purpose of establishing an agricultural experiment station, gave a great 
impetus to the development of research work in agriculture. This work was 
further encouraged by the passage of the Adams Act in 1906, the Purnell Act 
in 1925, the Bankhead-Jones Act in 1935, and the Flannagan-Hope Act of 1946. 

The work of the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station which is sup- 
ported by these Acts and by State appropriations centers at College Park. 
On the University Campus are to be found laboratories for studying insects 
and diseases, soil fertility problems, botanical problems, and others. This is 
also the location of the livestock and dairy barns with their experimental 
herds. About eight miles from the campus at College Park, near Beltsville, 
the Plant Research Farm of about 500 acres is devoted to work connected 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE 86 

with soil fertility, plant breeding and general horticultural problems. An ex- 
perimental farm near Upper Marlboro is devoted to the problems of tobacco 
growing and curing. A farm near Salisbury is devoted to solution of the 
problems of producers of broilers and of vegetable crops in the southern 
Eastern Shore area. Near Ellicott City a farm of 234 acres is devoted to 
livestock problems. Also tests of various crop and soil responses are dis- 
tributed throughout the State. These different locations give a chance to 
conduct experiments under conditions which exist where the results will 
be put into practice. 

The Station, in general, exists as the "trouble-shooter" for Maryland 
farmers. The solution of many difficult problems in the past has given the 
Station an excellent standing with farmers of the State. 



DEPARTMENT OF MARKETS 

All of the activities of the Department of Markets are geared to the im- 
portance in modern agriculture of the problems of marketing farm products. 
The Department endeavors to serve the every-day needs of the farmer in 
marketing his products and to insure a fair and equitable treatment of the 
farmer in all dealings which he may have concerning the marketing of his 
products. In the performance of these responsibilities, the Department carries 
out programs in extension marketing, conducts market surveys, compiles and 
disseminates marketing information and market data, operates a market news 
service, provides an agricultural inspection and grading service, maintains a 
consumer information service and enforces and interprets the agricultural 
marketing laws of the state. The regulatory aspects of the Department's 
functions are carried out as the agent of the. State Board of Agriculture under 
the authority of various State laws relating to the marketing of farm pro- 
ducts. A close working relationship is maintained with other specialists in 
the Extension Service, all departments of the Agricultural Experiment Sta- 
tion, the Maryland Crop Reporting Service, and the Agricultural Market- 
ing Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. The voluntary and dy- 
namic cooperation of the personnel in these various activities brings to bear 
on agricultural marketing problems an effective combination of research, 
education, and service. 

The passage of the Federal Agricultural Research and Marketing Act 
gave additional impetus to the study and solution of agriculture's marketing 
problems. The Department of Markets is largely responsible for developing 
the State program under Title II of this act. 

Information and assistance in all phases of marketing is available to all 
interested persons. When a sufficient number of individuals are interested, 
marketing specialists hold meetings and demonstrations in local communities. 
Field offices are located in Baltimore, Salisbury, Hancock, Hagerstown and 
Pocomoke. Department headquarters is at the University of Maryland, Col- 
lege Park, Maryland. 



86 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

STATE HORTICULTURAL DEPARTMENT 

In 1896 the subject of nursery inspection was given consideration under 
Article 48, of the Code of Public General Laws, under the title "Inspection" as 
designated by Chapter 290 of the "Acts of the General Assembly of Maryland 
of 1896." In 1898 certain sections of Article 48 were repealed and reenacted 
with amendments, under a new sub-title, "State Horticultural Department," 
and eight new sections were added thereto. In 1916 the sections were again 
re-enacted with such changes in the wording as were necessary to bring them 
into conformity with the reorganization of the Maryland State College of 
Agriculture and Experiment Station and its Board of Trustees. Subsequently 
all regulatory functions including newly enacted Articles in regard to bee 
diseases, mosquitoes, and aerial spraying, were transferred to the State 
Board of Agriculture under Chapter 391 of the "Acts of the General 
Assembly." 

Working in this field is designed to control insects and plant diseases 
and to protect the public in the purchase of products of nurserymen and 
florists. A considerable part of the time of the staff is occupied by inspection 
of orchards, crops, nurseries, greenhouses, and floral establishments. Cooper- 
ation with the Federal Government in the inspection and certification of 
materials that come under quarantine regulations is another major function 
of the department. The department enforces the provisions of the Apiary 
Law, including inspection of apiaries. This service includes control and 
eradication of diseases of strawberries and other small fruits, diseases of 
apples, peaches, etc., inspection and certification of potatoes and sweet 
potatoes for seed, control of white pine blister rust, Dutch elm disease, etc. 



DAIRY INSPECTION SERVICE 

The Maryland Dairy Inspection Law became effective June 1, 1935. How- 
ever, the present activities of the Dairy Inspection Service are based on 
Article 43 of the Annotated Code of Maryland, Section 542 thru Section 558, 
of the Laws of Maryland, 1951. The dairy department is chai-ged with the 
administration of the law. 

The purposes of the Dairy Inspection Law are as follows: (a)) To insure 
producers who sell milk and cream by measure, weight and butterfat test, that 
samples, weights and tests used as the basis of payment for such products are 
correct; (b) To insure dealers who purchase milk and cream that their agents 
shall correctly weigh, sample, and test these products; (c) To insure correct- 
ness of tests made for official inspections or for public record. To achieve 
these purposes the law requires the licensing of all dealers who purchase milk 
and cream from producers, whether the purchases are by measure, weight, or 
test, and the licensing of all persons sampling, weighing and testing milk 
and cream when the results of such samples, weights, and tests are to serve 
as a basis of payment to producers. 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE 87 

Duties of the Dairy Inspection Service, resulting from enforcement of the 
Inspection Law, deal with the calibration of that glassware used in testing 
milk and cream and the rejection of inaccurate items; examination of all 
weighers, samplers, and testers and the issuance of licenses to those satis- 
factorily passing the examination; and inspection of the pertinent activities 
of weighers, samplers, testers and dairy plants. 

STATE DEPARTMENT OF DRAINAGE 

The State Department of Drainage was established in 1937. Its duties are 
to promote and encourage the drainage of agricultural lands in the State, to 
correlate the activities of the local drainage organizations in the State and to 
cooperate with State and Federal agencies in the interest of a permanent pro- 
gram of improved drainage. 



STATE INSPECTION AND REGULATORY SERVICE 

Feeds, Fertilizers, Agricultural Liming Materials, Insecticides and Fungicides 

The protection of consumers and ethical manufacturers of agricultural 
products against fraudulent practices, makes certain specialized statutes 
necessary. These laws are classified as correct labeling acts, and are enforced 
by the State Inspection and Regulatory Service. Included in this legislation 
are the State Feed, Fertilizer, Agricultural Liming Materials, and Insecticide 
and Fungicide laws. 

Work of enforcing these laws is divided into five distinct phases: First, 
the commodities concerned must be registered under acceptable brand names, 
and with proper labels; second, official samples must be collected by the De- 
partment's inspectors from all parts of the state; third, chemical and physical 
examinations must be made to establish that professed standards of quality 
are being met; fourth, results must be assembled and published in concise 
and understandable from, with the reports made available to all interested 
persons; and fifth, the prosecution of those responsible for flagrant violations. 

Hundreds of tests also are made annually on feed, fertilizer, and lime 
samples submitted by state purchasers. No charge is made for this service. 

Throughout its existence, this Department has cooperated with compar- 
able federal agencies in every possible way. In this activity it has attained 
not only state-wide, but also a nationally-recognized reputation for accuracy, 
timeliness, and unbiased fair treatment of the consumer and manufacturer 
alike. 

The facilities of the Department are at all times available to supply the 
manufacturer with technical advice and to safeguard him from unfair com- 
petition. 

For its entire program of service and protection, the Department relies 
in large measure upon education, from the standpoint of both buyer and 



88 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

seller. However in those rare instances when this policy is unheeded, back- 
ing by the courts, both federal and state, can be depended upon for enforce- 
ment assistance. 



SEED INSPECTION SERVICE 

The Seed Inspection Service administers the State seed law; inspects seeds 
sold throughout the State; collects seed samples for laboratory examination; 
reports the results of the examinations to the parties concerned; publishes 
summaries of these reports which show the relative reliability of the label 
information supplied by wholesale seedsmen; cleans and treats tobacco seed 
intended for planting in the State; makes analysis, tests, and examinations 
of seed samples submitted to the Laboratory; and advises seed users regard- 
ing the economic and intelligent use of seeds. The Service also cooperates 
with the Agricultural Marketing Service of the United States Department of 
Agriculture in the enforcement of the Federal Seed Act in Maryland. 

The work of the Seed Inspection Service is not restricted to the enforce- 
ment of the seed law however, for State citizens may submit seed samples 
to the Laboratory for analysis, test, or examination. Specific information 
regarding suitability for planting purposes of lots of seeds is thus made avail- 
able to individuals without charge. The growth of this service has been 
steady since the establishment of the Laboratory in 1912. Most Maryland 
citizens, city and country, are directly interested in seeds for planting in 
fiower-beds, lawns, gardens, or fields. 



MARYLAND LIVE STOCK SANITARY SERVICE 

The Live Stock Sanitary Service is organized under the State Board of 
Agriculture and is charged with the responsibility of preventing the intro- 
duction of diseases of animals and poultry from outside of the state and with 
control and eradication of such diseases within the state. The service is 
further charged with the responsibility of cooperating with the State Depart- 
ment of Health in the suppression of diseases of animals and poultry which 
affect the public health. 

Control projects in bovine tuberculosis, Johne's disease, and bovine bru- 
cellosis are conducted in cooperation with the Agricultural Research Service 
of the United States Department of Agriculture. The field force of state 
employed veterinarians is augmented by a number of federal veterinarians 
in the conduct of these control programs. The control of swine brucellosis, 
pullorum disease in poultry, rabies, and many other disease conditions is 
conducted by the state without outside assistance. 

Facilities for the diagnosis of a wide variety of diseases are furnished in 
the main laboratory at College Park and in the branch laboratories at Salis- 
bury, Centreville, Bel Air, Frederick, Hagerstown, and Oakland,

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 

Leon Perdue Smith, Ph.D., Dean 
Charles Manning, Ph.D., Assistant Dean 

THE College of Arts and Sciences offers its students a liberal education. 
It seeks to develop graduates who can deal intelligently with the prob- 
lems which confront them and whose general education will be a continuing 
source not only of material profit, but of genuine personal satisfaction. It 
also offers each student the opportunity to concentrate in the field of his 
choice; this element of depth serves both as an integral part of his education 
and as a foundation for further professional training or pursuits. 

Students in other colleges of the University are offered training in funda- 
mental courses that serve as a background for their professional education. 

The courses required by the University for the baccalaureate degree in 
any college emphasize the development and nature of American civilization. 
All of these courses except one are given by the College of Arts and Sciences. 

History 

This college is an outgrowth of the Division of Language and Literature 
and the Division of Applied Science and the later School of Liberal Arts of 
Maryland State College. In 1921 the School of Liberal Arts and the School 
of Chemistry were combined and other physical and biological sciences were 
brought into the newly formed College of Arts and Sciences. In later reorgani- 
zations some departments have been added and some transferred to the admin- 
istrative control of other colleges. 

Requirements for Admission 

The requirements for admission to the College of Arts and Sciences are, 
in general, the same as those for admission to the other colleges and schools 
of the University. Application must be made to the Director of Admissions, 
University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland. 

The student who intends to pursue a program of study in the College of 
Arts and Sciences should include the following subjects in his high school 
program; English 4 units; Algebra, 2 units; Plane Geometry, 1 unit; For- 
eign Language, 2 or more units; Biological or Physical Sciences, 1 or more 
units; History and Social Sciences, 1 or more units. 

The student who wishes to major in Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, 
Bacteriology, Botany, Zoology or who wishes to follow a pre-medical or pre- 
dental program should include trigonometry and Solid Geometry, and, if possi- 
ble, Chemistry and Physics in his high school program . 

A complete statement of admission requirements and policies will be found 
in the General Information Catalog. A copy may be obtained by writing to 
the Director of Publications, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland. 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 33

scribed by the College of Arts and Sciences are Bachelor of Art? and Bachelor 
of Science. 

Students of this College who complete satisfactorily curricula with majors 
in departments of the Humanities or Social Sciences are awarded the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts*. Those who complete satisfactorily curricula with majors in 
departments of Biological or Physical Sciences are awarded the degree of 
Bachelor of Science.! Those who complete satisfactorily the special profession- 
al program in the Department of Music are awarded the degree of Bachelor 
of Music. 

Students who complete satisfactorily the prescribed combined program of 
Arts and Sciences and Medicine, or of Arts and Sciences and Dentistry, will 
be granted the degree of Bachelor of Science. Students who complete satis- 
factorily the prescribed combined program of Arts and Sciences and Law 
will be granted the degree of Bachelor of Arts. 

Residence 

The last thirty semester hours credit of any curriculum leading to a bac- 
calaureate degree in the College of Arts and Sciences must be taken in resi- 
dence in this University. 

Students working for one of the combined degrees must earn the last 30 
semester hours credit of the arts program in residence in the College of Arts 
and Sciences, College Park. 

The complete statement of this requirement may be found in section 28 
of the Academic Regulations. 



•The departments of Economies, Geography, and Government and Politics, although 
administratively in the College of Business and Public Administration, offer courses 
for Arts and Sciences students. Majors may be elected in these departments as in those 
of the other departments of the Division of Social Sciences which are administered by 
the College of Arts and Sciences. 

tThe department of Botany, although administered by the College of Agriculture, 
offers courses for Arts and Sciences students. A Major may be elected in this depart- 
ment as in those of the other departments of the Division of Biological Sciences adminis- 
tered by the College of Arts and Sciences. 



34 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

General Requirements for Degrees 

The baccalaureate degree from the College of Arts and Sciences may be 
conferred upon a student who has satisfied the following requirements: 

1. University requirements. 

2. College of Arts and Sciences requirements: 

A minimum of 120 semester hours credit in academic subjects other than 
basic military science is required for a bachelor's degree. Men must acquire in 
addition 12 semester hours in military science, and 4 semester hours in physical 
activities. Women must acquire in addition 4 semester hours in hygiene and 
4 semester hours in physical activities. 

Work in the Freshman and Sophomore Years 

The work of the first two years in the College of Arts and Sciences, is de- 
signed to give the student a basic general education, and to prepare him 
for concentration in the latter part of his course. 

It is the student's responsibility to develop in these earlier years such 
proficiency in basic subjects as may be necessary for his continuation in the 
field of his special interest. Personal aptitude and a general scholastic ability 
must also be demonstrated, if permission to pursue a major study is to be 
obtained. 

The student should follow the curriculum for which he is belived to be 
best fitted. It will be noted that a common group of studies is required of all 
students who are candidates for a bachelor's degree. These subjects should 
be taken, if possible, during the Freshman and Sophomore years. 

University Requirements: The Program in American Civilization 

The University considers that it is important for every student to achieve 
an appreciative understanding of this country, its history and its. culture. It 
has therefore established a comprehensive program in American Civilization. 
This program is also designed to provide the student with a general educa- 
cational background. 

Work in American Civilization is offered at three distinct academic levels. 
The first level is required of all freshmen and sophomores at the University 
and is described below. The second level is for undergraduate students wishing 
to carry a major in this field. The third level is for students desiring to do 
graduate work in this field (see catalog for the Graduate School). 

All students receiving a baccalaureate degree from the University of 
Maryland must (except as specific exceptions are noted in printed curricula) 
obtain 24 semester hours of credit in the lower division courses of the Amer- 
ican Civilization Program. Although the courses in the Program are pre- 
scribed generally, some choice is permitted, especially for students who dem- 
onstrate in classification tests good previous preparation in one or more of 
the required subjects. 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 36 

The 24 semester hours in American Civilization are as follows: 

1. English (12 hours, Eng. 1, 2 and 3, 4 or 5, 6), American History (6 
hours Hist. 5, 6), and American Government (3 hours, G. & P. 1) are required 
subjects; however, students who qualify in one, two, or all three of these 
areas by means of University administered tests are expected to substitute 
certain elective courses. Through such testing a student may be released from 
8 hours of English (9 hours would remain an absolute requirement), 3 hours 
of American History (3 hours remaining as an absolute requirement), and 3 
hours of American Government. Students released from 3 hours of English 
will ordinarily take Eng. 21 instead of Eng. 1 and 2. Those released from 3 
hours in History will ordinarily take Hist. 56 instead of Hist. 5 and 6. 

2. For the 3 additional hours of the 24 hours required the student elects 
one course from the following group (Elective Group I): 

Economics 37, Fundamentals of Economics (Not open to Freshmen; 

students who may wish to take additional courses in economics should 

substitute Economics 31 for Economics 37). 
Philosophy 1, Philosophy of Modern Man 
Sociology 1, Sociology of American Life 

3. Students who, on the basis of tests, have been released from 3, 6 or 9 
hours in otherwise required courses in English, American History or Amer- 
ican Government (see 1 above), shall select the replacements for these courses 
from any or all of the following groups: (a) more advanced courses in the 
same department as the required courses in which the student is excused, or 
(b) Elective Group I (see 2 above) provided that the same course may not 
be used as both a Group I and a Group II choice, or (c) Elective Group II. 
Group II consists of the following 3-hour courses: 

History 2, History of Modern Europe; either History 51 or 52, The 
Humanities; either Music 20, Survey of Music Literature or Art 22, History 
of American Art; Psychology 1, Introduction to Psychology; and Sociology 
5, Anthropology. 

University Requirements: ROTC, Physical Education and Health. 

1. Basic Military Science for Men — Twelve semester hours. Required 
freshman and sophomore years. 

2. Health for Women — four semester hours. Required freshman year. 

3. Physical Activities for Men and Women — four semester hours. Re- 
quired freshman and sophomore years. 

All male students, unless specifically exempted under University regula- 
tions, are required to take basic Air Force R. 0. T. C. training for a period of 
two years. The successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for 
graduation and it must be taken by all eligible students during the first two 
years of attendance at the University, whether they intend to graduate or 
not. Transfer students who have not fulfilled this requirement will complete 
the course or take it until graduation, whichever occurs first. 



36 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Selected students who wish to do so may, with proper approval, carry as 
electives during their Junior and Senior years advanced Air Force R. O. T. C. 
courses which lead to a regular or reserve commission in the United States 
Air Force. 

For further details concerning the requirements in Military Instruction 
write to the Director of Publications, University of Maryland, College Park, 
Maryland, for a copy of the "General Information Issue" of the Catalog. 

College Requirements 

1. Foreign Language — twelve semester hours in one language, unless 
otherwise specified. 

2. Natural Science and Mathematics — twelve semester hours, unless 
otherwise specified. The science courses elected require the approval of the 
dean; they will usually be from those departments offering majors in the 
College of Arts and Sciences. At least one course must include laboratory 
experience and one course must be elected in each of the divisions of Biological 
and Physical Sciences except in the case of students whose science courses are 
specifically prescribed in their curricula. 

3. Speech — two to four semester hours in accordance with the particu- 
lar curriculum. 

4. Major and Minor Requirements — When a student has completed satis- 
factorily the requirements of the freshman and sophomore years he will select 
a major in one of the departments of an upper division and for graduation 
will complete a departmental major and a minor. The courses constituting the 
major and the minor must conform to the requirements of the department 
in which the major work is done. 

The student must have an average of not less that C in the introductory 
courses in the field in which he intends to major. 

A major shall consist, in addition to the underclass departmental require- 
ments, of 24-40 hours, of which at least twelve must be in courses numbered 
100 or above. 

A minor in programs leading to the A. B. degree, shall consist of a 
coherent group of courses totalling 18 semester hours in addition to the re- 
quirements listed above. At least six of the 18 hours must be in a single 
department in courses numbered 100 or above. The courses comprising the 
minor must be chosen with the approval of the major department. 

No minor is required in programs leading to the B. S. degree, but the 
student must take such supporting courses in science or other fields as are 
required by his major department. 

The average grade of the work taken in the major field must be at least 
C; some departments will count toward satisfaction of the major requirement 
no course completed with a grade of less than C. The average grade of the 
work taken in the major and minor fields combined must be at least C. A 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 37 

general average of C in courses taken at the University of Maryland is re- 
quired for graduation. 

Junior Requirements 

A student must acquire a minimum of 56 academic semester hours with 
an average grade of at least C in the Freshman and Sophomore years before 
he will be permitted to begin advanced work on his major and minor. 

Normal Load 

The normal load for students in this college is 15 semester hours credit per 
semester, exclusive of the required work in physical activities, military sci- 
ence, and hygiene. 

Juniors and seniors are not permitted to register for more than 18 hours 
without the approval of the Dean of the College. 

Advisers 

Each freshman and sophomore in this college will be assigned to a faculty 
adviser who will help the student, during his first two years, to select his 
courses and to determine what his field of major concentration should be. Jun- 
iors in the combined programs will continue in the same system. 

Other juniors and seniors will consider the head of their major department, 
or his designated assistant, their adviser, and should consult him about the 
arrangements of their schedules of courses. 

Electives in Other Colleges and Schools 

A limited number of courses taken in other colleges and schools of the 
University may be counted for elective or minor credit toward a degree in 
the College of Arts and Sciences. 

The number of credits which may be accepted from the various colleges 
and schools is as follows: College of Education — 24; all other colleges — 20. 
The combined credits from these colleges and schools shall not exceed 20 (or 
24 if courses in Education are included). Schools of Dentistry, Law, and Medi- 
cine — In combined degree programs the first year of professional work must 
be completed. 

Certification of High School Teachers 

If courses are properly chosen in the field of education, a prospective 
high school teacher can prepare for high school positions, with a major and 
minor in one of the departments of this College. A student who wishes to 
work for a teacher's certificate should consult his adviser before the junior 
year. 

Special Honors 

Programs of readings for special honors are open to undergraduates. 
These programs are currently available in Litei'ature, English, French, German, 
History, Mathematics, and Spanish. The program for special honors in liter- 
ature is open to undergraduates in any college of the University who have the 
approval of their dean and of the head of the department of English. Candi- 



38 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

dates are examined on an approved list of literary works including translations 
from foreign languages. Application may be made to the head of the depart- 
ment of English at any time before the beginning of the junior year. The 
programs for special honors in English, French, German, History, Mathe- 
matics, and Spanish are open to students majoring in the departments con- 
cerned. The individual programs of readings should be begun early in the 
student's collegiate career; in no case later than the beginning of the senior 
year. Application should be made to the head of the department concerned. 

GENERAL A.B. CURRICULUM 

The following curriculum gives the subjects required of students planning 
to major in one of the departments of the Divisions of Humanities or Social 
Studies. Since some departmental majors require prerequisites which should 
be taken during the first two years, individual programs must be prepared in 
consultation with the assigned adviser; the elective hours listed may be used 
for this purpose. Lower division advisers and the heads of the departments of 
Music and Sociology have available copies of normal curricula for distribution 
to students who wish additional information about majors in Art, Music or 
Sociology.

I. AMERICAN CIVILIZATION 

The University has a comprehensive program in American studies. It be- 
gins with required courses on the freshman and sophomore level, includes a 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 39 

major for juniors and seniors, and also provides for graduate work on the M.A. 
and Ph.D. level. (For information concerning the graduate program, see the 
Graduate School catalog.) 

The student who majors in American Civilization has the advantage of 
being taught by cooperating specialists from various departments. The com- 
mittee in charge of the program represents the departments of English, His- 
tory, Government and Politics, and Sociology. Members of the committee 
serve as official advisers to students electing to work in the field. 

The program is intended to have generous breadth, but the danger of 
securing breadth without depth is offset by the requirement of an area of 
concentration. Studies in American Civilization are supplemented by studies 
in source cultures and interacting cultures; however, in planning a curriculum, 
students are required to concentrate in one of the four departments primarily 
concerned with the program. The program must include at least 42 semester 
hours of work from the departments participating in the program. These 
credits constitute collectively a major and a minor. At least 20 of these 42 
hours of advanced work must be in 100-level courses. All the advanced work 
should be so distributed that the student will take at least 9 hours in each 
of three out of the four cooperating departments, including of course the 
department of his concentration. 

In his senior year, each major student is required to take a conference 
course (American Civilization 137, 138) in which the study of American Civili- 
zation is brought to a focus. During this course, the student analyzes eight 
or ten important books which reveal fundamental patterns in American life and 
thought and receives incidental training in bibliographical matters, in formu- 
lating problems for special investigation, and in group discussion. 

Freshmen and sophomores who are interested in concentrating in American 
Civilization should consult with their Lower Division Adviser. Upperclassmen 
should consult with the Executive Secretary of the American Civilization cur- 
riculum, Professor Bode. 

Suggested sample curriculum for American civilization majors: 

Junior year: Hist. 52, The Humanities (3); Hist. 105 and 106, Social & 
Economic History of the United States (3, 3); Eng. 150 and 151, American 
Literature (3, 3); Government and Politics 144, American Political Theory 
(3); Phil. 121, American Philosophy (3); Electives (9). 

Senior year: American Civilization 137 and 138, Conference course in 
American Civilization (3, 3); Government and Politics 174, Political Parties 
(3); Phil. 154, Political and Social Philosophy (3); Soc. 105, Cultural Anthro- 
pology (3); Soc. 125, Cultural History of the Negro (3); Hist. 133 and 134, 
History of Ideas in America (3, 3); Electives (6). 

II. THE HUMANITIES 
Art 

Two types of majors are offered in art: Art Major A for those who take 
the art curriculum as a cultural subject and as preparation for a career for 



40 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

which art is a necessary background; Art Major B for those who prepare them- 
selves for creative work on a professional basis. 

In both types the student begins with the basic courses, and moves to more 
advanced study of the theory of design and of the general principles involved 
in visual expression. A large amount of study takes the form of actual prac- 
tice of drawing and painting. The student, in this way, gains a knowledge of 
the vocabulary of drawing and painting, and of the methods and procedures 
underlying good quality of performance. 

Art Major B emphasizes the development of craftsmanship and the crea- 
tive faculty. Art Major A, while including the basic studio courses, necessar- 
ily places emphasis on general history, composition, and art appreciation, 
with subsequent choices of special art epochs for greater detailed study. 

Art History and Art Appreciation are of special interest to students major- 
ing in English, History, Languages, Philosophy, or Music. It is suggested that 
they schedule Art 9, 10, and 11, Historical Survey of Painting, Sculpture, and 
Architecture, and History of American Art, as excellent supplementary study 
for a fuller understanding of their major. Art 20 is recommended for Eng- 
lish, Languages, Philosophy, Home Economics, and Education majors. Art 
10, History of American Art, is advised for majors in the American Civiliza- 
tion courses. Home Economics and Horticulture majors are encouraged to 
schedule basic art courses as a useful means of training observation and de- 
veloping understanding of, and proficiency in, the visual arts. 

Courses required in all art majors: Art 1 — Charcoal Drawing (3) ; Art 5 — 
Still Life Painting (3); Art 9, 11 — Historical Survey of Painting, Sculpture 
and Architecture (3, 3); Art 20 — Art Appreciation (2).

Course required in Cultural Art major: Art 10 — History of American Art 
Course Required in Creative Art major: Art 7 — Landscape Painting (3). 

Classical Languages and Literatures 

Twelve hours of underclass requirements must be completed before a stu- 
dent may begin work toward a major. These requirements are satisfied by the 
first four courses taken, beginning from the level of initial registration in ac- 
cordance with the schedule which precedes the list of course offerings in this 
catalog. No placement tests are given in the Classical Languages. 

The major and minor requirements are those generally in effect in the 
College of Arts and Sciences and stated in the appropriate section above. 

Comparative Literature 

Comparative Literature courses are offered by the Classics, the English, 
and the Foreign Language Departments. When it is so recommended by the 
student's adviser comparative literature courses may be counted toward a 
major or minor in English. Requirements for a major in comparative liter- 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 41 

ature include a knowledge of one foreign language and the Introductory survey, 
Comparative Literature 101 and 102. 

English 

Students majoring in English, particularly those who plan to do graduate 
work, are urged to take work in foreign language in adddition to that required 
for graduation. In selecting minor or elective subjects, it is recommended that 
students give special consideration to the following: Latin, Greek, French, 
German, philosophy, history, and fine arts. 

Students who major in English must choose 21 hours of the possible 
24-40 hours required of a major from courses in several groups, as follows: 

1. Three hours in language (Eng. 8, 101, 102, 104). 

2. Six hours in major figures (Eng. 104, 112, 115, 116, 121; 155 or 156). 

3. Six hours in survey or type courses (Eng. 110, 111, 112, 113, 120, 122, 
123, 125, 126, 129, 130, 134, 135, 139, 140, 143, 144, 145, 157). 

4. Six hours in American literature (Eng. 148, 150, 155, 156). 

Honors in English: Seniors whose major is English may become candi- 
dates for honors in English provided that they have an average of at least 
3.0 in all English courses and 3.5 in English courses numbered above 100. 
Candidates must take the Honors Conference Course (Eng. 199); those who 
pass this course with distinction and maintain an average of 3.5 in other Eng- 
lish courses will be certified for graduation with honors in English. 

Foreign Languages and Literature 

The underclass department requirements which must be satisfied before a 
student can begin work toward a major are the courses numbered 1, 2, 4, and 
5 (or 1, 2, 6 and 7, or 1, 2, 4 and 17). 

Two types of majors are offered in French, German, or Spanish: one for 
the general student or the future teacher, and the other for those interested in 
a rounded study of a foreign area for the purpose of understanding another 
nation through its literature, history, sociology, economics, and other aspects. 

Literature and Language Major: Language and literature as such are 
stressed in the first type of major. Specific minimum requirements beyond the 
first two years are a semester each of intermediate and advanced conversation 
(Fr., Ger., or Span. 8 or 9 and 80 or 81), six hours of the introductory survey 
of literature (Fr., Ger., or Span. 75 and 76), one semester of advanced com- 
position (Fr., Ger., or Span. 121), and any twelve hours in literature courses 
numbered 100 or above — a total of 26 semester hours. Beyond this minimum 
further courses in the Department are desirable and as electives work in 
American and in Comparative Literature is strongly recommended; Compar- 
ative Literature 101 and 102 are required. 



42 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Foreign Area Major: The area study major endeavors to provide the 
etudent with a knowledge of various aspects of the country whose language 
he is studying. Specific minimum requirements beyond the first two years 
are seven hours of conversation (Fr., Ger., or Span. 8, 9, and 80 or 81), six 
hours of review grammar and composition (Fr., Ger., or Span. 71 and 72), six 
hours in civilization (Fr., Ger., or Span. 161 and 162 or 163 and 164), and six 
additional hours in courses numbered 100 or above — a total of 25 semester 
hours. In addition, Comparative Literature 101 and 102 are required. The 
student takes, as a minor, eighteen hours in geography, history, political 
science, sociology, economics, or other human science courses, distributed 
through these fields in consultation with advisers in the Foreign Language 
Department. 

Special Honors: The distinction of special honors in French, German, or 
Spanish is awarded to majors who, in addition to fulfilling the above-mentioned 
requirements, have completed certain special readings and passed a compre- 
hensive examination in their field of concentration. The purpose of honors in 
languages is (1) to encourage independent reading and (2) to coordinate 
the knowledge afforded by the various individual courses which constitute the 
major curricula. The work leading to honors is done in conferences between 
students and professors. It should be begun early in the student's collegiate 
career, and in no case may students declare their candidacy for honors later 
than the beginning of their senior year. 



Music 

The functions of the Department are (1) to help the general student 
develop sound critical judgment and discriminating taste in the art of music; 

(2) to provide professional training based on a foundation in the liberal arts; 

(3) to prepare the student for graduate work in the field; (4) to prepare him 
to teach in the public schools. To this end, two degrees are offered: the Bache- 
lor of Music, with a major in theory-composition, history-literature, or applied 
music; and the Bachelor of Arts, with a major in music. The Bachelor of 
Science degree, with a major in music education, is offered in the College of 
Education. 

Courses in music theory, literature, and applied music are open to all 
students who have completed the specified prerequisites or their equivalents. 
The University Orchestra, Band, Chapel Choir, Women's Chorus, and Men's 
Glee Club are likewise open to qualified students. 



The Bachelor of Music Degree 

The curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Music is designed 
for students who wish to prepare for careers as performers or private teachers, 
or to prepare for music teaching on the college level. The course requirements 
in the three major areas may be summarized as follows. A list of specific 
courses is available in the departmental office.

In addition, eight semester hours in ensemble courses; Air Science 
(men)**, Health (women)**, and Physical Activities **. 

The Bachelor of Arts Degree 

The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major 
in music is designed for students whose interests are cultural rather than 
professional. The departmental requirements include sixteen semester hours 
in music theory, eighteen semester hours in music history and literature, 
eight semester hours in applied music, in addition to not more than six 
semester hours in the larger ensembles. A list of specific courses is available 
in the departmental office. 

Philosophy 

The department's undergraduate courses are designed to help students 
attain philosophical perspective, clear understanding, and sound critical eval- 
uation concerning the nature of man, his place in the universe, and the sig- 
nificance of the principal types of human experiences and activities. 

To those students who wish to explore the field of philosophy, but who 
have not sufficient free electives to take some of the more specialized courses 
offered by the department, three general courses are available. Phil. 1, 
Philosophy for Modern Man, is a Group I elective in the American Civilization 
Program. As such it is directed in part toward examining the philosophical 
basis of American ideas and ideals. But it is concerned also with the general 
educational aspects of the Program and hence deals with the larger philosophi- 
cal questions relating to the nature of man as a thinking, feeling and valuing 
member of human society. 

In addition to Philosophy 1 the department offers two other courses de- 
signed as electives for students who wish to acquaint themselves with the 
ideas of some of the great philosophers: Philosophy 123, 124, Philosophies 
Men Live By. 

To students in other fields who wish to explore the philosophy of their 
subjects, the department offers a choice among a group of specifically related 



•University requirement : American Civilization Program. 24 semester hours ;

158, Philosophy of Language. 

To students of literature, history, or the history of ideas, the department 
offers historical courses in ancient, medieval, modern, recent and contemporary, 
Oriental, and American philosophy. The last course is particularly relevant for 
students of American Civilization. 

The courses in Logic (41 and 155) are recommended in the Arts-Law cur- 
riculum and the Government and Politics program. 

Minors in philosophy are especially suitable for students majoring in Eng- 
lish, Literature, the Social Sciences, American Civilization, Psychology, and 
in the pre-Ministry and pre-Law fields. Interested students should consult with 
the chairman of the department. 

Freshmen and Sophomores planning to major in Philosophy should con- 
sult the chairman of the department about preparation for the major. 

Speech and Dramatic Art 

The courses in this department have two main functions: (1) to provide 
training in basic oral communication skills to meet the general needs of under- 
graduates of the university; (2) to provide integrated specialized training for 
students who wish to major or minor in speech. 

A major may be taken in the Speech Department in one of two general 
areas, the speech arts or the speech sciences. The speech arts include theater, 
radio and television, public speaking, and oral interpretation; the speech 
sciences include phonetics, semantics, speech pathology and audiology. The 
undergraduate program provides a level of training that will prepare students 
to enter several professional fields. Specifically, these fields are: (1) teaching 
speech and dramatic art or directing these activities; (2) radio and television; 
(3) speech and hearing therapy. In addition, adequate pi-eparation and training 
for graduate work is provided. 

Minors in speech are adapted to meet the needs of students majoring in 
English, the Social Sciences, Journalism and Public Relations, Elementary 
Education, Nursery School — Kindergarten Education, pre-Law and pie-Minis- 
try fields. 

Prerequisites for all majors in speech are Speech 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6, and 
Zoology 1. Major requirements: 30 hours of courses in speech with 15 hours 
of courses numbered 100 and above, in either the speech arts or speech sciences. 
Speech 111, Seminar; is required of all majors in speech. No grades of D in 
the major field will be counted toward completing the major requirements for 
graduation. 

Specific requirements for professional training in speech and hearing 
therapy include completion of the general requirements for speech majors with 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 45 

the following additions: Zoology 14. 15; Psychology 1, 5, 131; a minimum of 21 
hours of speech sciences at the 100 level. 

Qualified students, depending upon specialized interests, are invited to par- 
ticipate in the activities of the University Theater, Radio-Television Guild, and 
the Calvert Debate Club. 

III. THE SOCIAL SCIENCES 

Economics 

Students registered in the College of Arts and Sciences may major in 
Economics. During the freshman and sophomore years prospective economics 
majors should consult with their Lower Division Adviser in Arts and Sciences 
concerning preparation for the major. Normally Economic Developments (2, 
2) is taken during the freshman year and Principles of Economics (3, 3) during 
the sophomore year. 

Juniors and seniors are advised by the faculty of the Department of Eco- 
nomics, which is administered in the College of Business and Public Admin-

less than C. Advanced Economic Principles (3) and Elements of Statistics (3) 
are required. Other courses to meet the requirements of the major are to be 
selectd with the aid of a faculty adviser. Descriptions of courses in Economics 
will be found in the catalog of the College of Business and Public Administra- 
tion. Additional information about the curriculum in Economics may be ob- 
tained at the departmental office. 

Geography 

Geography is a recognized major field in Arts and Sciences leading to the 
A.B. degree. Arts and Sciences students may register for its courses and 
major in geography from a liberal arts point of view, although the department 
is administered by the College of Business and Public Administration. Fresh- 
men and sophomores wishing to major in geography should consult their 
Lower Division advisers. Additional information about the geography pro- 
gram may be obtained at the departmental office.

students in the College of Arts and Sciences, leading to the A.B. degree. Fresh- 
man and sophomores wishing to major in Government and Politics should 
consult their Lower Division Advisers about preparation for the major; addi- 
tional information about the Government and Politics program may be obtained 
at the departmental office. Juniors and seniors majoring in Government and 
Politics are advised by the faculty of that department. 

For further information concerning the courses offered in Government and 
Politics, see the catalog of the College of Business and Public Administration. 
The Government and Politics curriculum described in that catalog does not 
apply to students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Such students must 
complete instead the following requirements: 

1. At least 36 semester hours of Government and Policitics. 

2. No course in which the grade is less than C, made after September 
1947, may be counted as part of the major work. 

3. An adequate diversification of study in the various fields of Govern- 
ment and Politics, under the guidance of the faculty of the Depart- 
ment. 

If desired, students may specialize in state and local government, public 
administration, public law, public policy, political theory, comparative govern- 
ment, or international relations. 

History 

The study of history is basic for the cultural background of all fields of 
knowledge. In addition, the Department of History offers a curriculum which 
is designed to assist students who wish to prepare themselves for entering sev- 
eral fields of professional activity. Specifically these fields are (1) teaching 
history and the social sciences at the secondary level; (2) the field of journal- 
ism, which requires a broad historical background; (3) research and archival 
work; (4) the diplomatic service. In addition, the department offers adequate 
preparation and training for those who intend to pursue higher degrees and 
prepare themselves for teaching at the college level. 

Undergraduate history majors must complete the following departmental 
requirements: 

1. Every major is required to complete a minimum of 24 semester hours in 
advanced courses, with the following exceptions: (a) the total may be 
reduced by 3 credit hours for those students who, in addition to the pre- 
requisites, have taken 6 credits in other courses under the 100 level; 
and (b) the total may be reduced by 6 credit hours for those who, in 
addition to the prerequisites, have completed 12 semester hours in 
courses under the 100 level. 

2. No less than 15 nor more than 18 semester hours in advanced courses 
should be taken in any one field of history, e. g., European, American, 
or Latin American.

college students) and History 1 and 2. 

4. All majors are required to take the proseminar during their senior year. 

6. No grades of D in the major field will be counted toward completing 
the major requirements for graduation. 

Honors in History: A student whose major is in History and who main- 
tains an approved average in his grades may read for honors in History. A 
candidate for honors is examined upon an approved individual program of 
readings in an area of his special interest. Application may be made to the 
head of the Department of History between the second semester of the sopho- 
more year and the first semester of the senior year. 



PSYCHOLOGY 

The Department of Psychology is classed in both the Division of Social 
Sciences (for the B.A. degree) and the division of Biological Sciences (for the 
B.S. degree) and offers educational programs related to both of these fields. 
The functions of the undergraduate curriculum in Psychology are to provide an 
organized study of the behavior of man, in terms of the biological conditions 
and social factors which influence such behavior. In addition, the undergrad- 
uate program in Psychology is arranged to provide a level of training that 
will equip the students to enter certain professional pursuits which require a 
background in this field. It is important to note, however, that the under- 
graduate degree in Psychology is not in itself recognized as carrying any 
professional status. 

Departmental requirements toward the B.A. degree with a major in 
Psychology are: Psych. 1, 21, 106, 145, 150; and two from among Psych. 128, 
142, and 148; plus 9 additional hours in Psychology and/or other departments 
selected in conference with the student's major adviser. A minor program 
is organized to supplement the work in the major, and for the B.A. degree 
this minor program will ordinarily consist of courses in the Social Sciences. 
The departmental requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree are given 
elsewhere in these pages. 



SOCIOLOGY 

The major in Sociology offers a liberal education and at the same time 
provides a background for those professional fields which focus on an under- 
standing of human relationships. 

Departmental requirements consist of a minimum of 27 semester hours in 
Sociology (not including Sociology 1) and 18 hours in a minor. Of the latter 
at least 6 hours must be of 100 series courses in a single department. Sociology 
credit with a grade of less than C may not be counted toward the major 
requirement.

GENERAL B.S. CURRICULUM 

The curricula required of students majoring in departments of the Divi- 
sions of Biological Sciences and Physical Sciences vary much in regard to 
the year in which University and College required courses are scheduled in 
order to assure the proper sequential and prerequisite arrangement of major 
courses. The following curriculum, which gives the subjects required of stu- 
dents who plan to major in departments of the divisions of Biological or 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 49 

Physical Sciences, is, therefore, quite flexible; individual program must be 
prepared in consultation with the assigned adviser. Lower division advisers 
and department heads have available copies of normal curricula for distribu- 
tion to students who wish additional information about majors in depart- 
ments of these divisions.

IV. THE BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES 

Curriculum for General Biological Sciences 

This program has been prepared for the student who is interested in bi- 
ology but whose interest has not yet centered in any one of the biological 
sciences. This program is also a suitable one for the pre-dental student who 
plans to earn the B.S. degree before entering dental school. This program, 
however, is not recommended for the pre-medical student. The program in- 
cludes work in Bacteriology, Botany, Entomology, and Zoology, and introduces 
the student to the general principles and methods of each of these biological 
sciences. The student may then emphasize any one of these areas in com- 
pleting his program. 

By proper selection of courses during the junior and senior years, a 
student may concentrate his work sufficiently in one area of biology to be 
able to continue in graduate work in that field. However, a student who is 
definitely planning to do graduate work would be well-advised to major in 
one specific field of biology as soon as his interest becomes definite. 

The student following this program must meet the general requirements 
for a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences. He should select French or

•See "The Program in American Civilization" on pages 34-35. 

•*A placement test is given during Registration Week for students wishing to pursue 
a language they have studied in high school. Some departmental curricula require 
German. Most of the departments prefer or require that the second year be in Scientific 
French or German (Fr. or Gr. 6, 7). 



50 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

German to meet the foreign language requirement and Speech 7 (or Speech 
1, 2) to fulfill the requirement in Speech. 

Required introductory courses in the Biological Sciences: Bacteriology 1; 
Botany 1; Entomology 1; Zoology 1. These courses must be passed with an 
average grade of at least C. The pre-dental student must take Zoology 2 as 
well. 

Required supporting courses in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences: 
Mathematics 10, 11; Chemistry 1, 3; Physics 10, 11. The student working in 
most areas of biology will also need a year of Organic Chemistry (Chemistry 
31, 32, 33, 34 or Chemistry 35, 36, 37, 38). Additional work in Chemistry may 
also be required by the student's adviser, in accordance with the needs of the 
student's field of emphasis. The pre-dental student must include Chemistry 35, 
36, 37, 38 in his program. 

Advanced courses in the Biological Sciences: The student must complete at 
least 30 semester hours of advanced work selected from the fields of Microbi- 
ology, Botany, Entomology, and Zoology. Of these credits at least 18 must 
be at the 100 level and taken in at least two of the four departments . The 
following courses in Psychology may be counted as part of the required 30 
semester hours but may not be used to satisfy the requirement of 18 semester 
hours at the 100 level: Psychology 106, 126, 136, 145, 180, 181, 195. 

A junior or senior following this curriculum will be advised by the depart- 
ment in which he plans to do the most work. 

Courses required in major or as supporting courses: Zool. 1 — General 
Zoology (4); Bot. 1 — General Botany (4); Chem. 1, 3 — General Chemistry 
(4, 4); Ent. 1 — Introductory Entomology (3); Bact. 1 — General Bacteriology 
(4); Math. 10, 11 — Algebra, Trigonometry and and Analytic Geometry (3, 3); 
Phys. 10, 11 — Fundamentals of Physics (4, 4); electives in Biological Sciences 
(30). 

MICROBIOLOGY 

The Department of Microbiology functions with three purposes in view. 
One of these is to provide fundamental training for those students who 
choose bacteriology as a major subject. Two major fields of study are 
provided: (1) applied bacteriology, in preparation for such positions as dairy, 
sanitary, or agricultural bacteriologists in federal, state, and commercial 
laboratories, and (2) medical bacteriology, in relation to hospital, public 
health, and clinic laboratories. The second objective of the department is to 
provide desirable courses for those students who are majoring in closely 
allied departments and desire vital supplementary information. Every effort 
has been made to plan these courses so that they satisfy the demands of 
these related departments as well as the needs of those students who have 
chosen bacteriology as a major. The third purpose of the department is to 
encourage and foster original thought in the pursuit of research. 

Microbiology Curriculum — The field of bacteriology is too vast in scope to 
permit specialization in the early stages of undergraduate study. Accord- 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 51 

ingly, the applied curriculum outlined below includes the basic courses in 
bacteriology and allied fields. 

The course in Advanced General Bacteriology (Bad. 5) is required for all 
microbiology majors, and should follow General Bacteriology (Bact. 1). 
Bacteriology 5 is not required as a prerequisite for upper division courses 
for majors in other departments provided the student has been introduced 
to certain aspects of bacteriology, or their equivalent, pertinent to their 
specialty. Bacteriology 1, however, is required. 

A student planning a major in Microbiology should consult his adviser 
during the first year concerning his particular field of study and his choice 
of supporting courses. The supporting courses should be chosen only from 
the biological or physical sciences. The supporting courses in chemistry are 
listed below. 

A grade of D in a course in bacteriology will not be counted toward com- 
pleting the major requirements for graduation. 

Courses required in major and supporting courses: — Bact. 1 — General 
Bacteriology (4) ; Bact. 5 — Advanced General Bacteriology (4) ; Bact. 101 — 
Pathogenic Bacteriology (4); Bact. 131 — Food and Sanitary Bacteriology 
(4) ; Bact. 60, 62 — Bacteriological Literature (1, 1) ; Bact. 103 — Serology (4) ; 
Bact. 161 — Systematic Bacteriology (2); Chem. 1, 3 — General Chemistry (4, 
4); Chem. 31, 32, 33, 34— Elements of Organic Chemistry (3, 3); Chem. 19 — 
Elements of Quantitative Analysis (4) ; Chem. 161, 163 — Biochemistry (2, 2) ; 
Math. 10, 11 — Algebra, Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry (3, 3); Physics 
10, 11 — Fundamentals of Physics (4, 4). 

Medical Technology Program: This is a professional program intended 
for those students who wish to prepare for technical work in any type of a 
medical laboratory. Because of its technical nature, it is broader in require- 
ments and allows fewer electives. By proper planning of one's schedule begin- 
ning in the sophomore year, courses in zoology may be taken in place of 
electives or certain courses in microbiology. These courses should include 
Zoology 1, General Zoology; Zoology 16, Human Physiology; Zoology 108, 
Animal Histology; Zoology 110, Parasitology; and the following courses in 
microbiology; Bacteriology 105, Clinical Methods; and Bacteriology 108, Epi- 
demiology. 

The student who elects this program should try to obtain summer em- 
ployment in a medical laboratory. This program is so designed that a student, 
with proper planning, can prepare himself for admission to any of the training 
schools for medical technology located in various hospitals. These training 
schools require two, three or four years of collegiate work, and after one 
year of hospital apprenticeship, the student is eligible to take examinations 
for the Registry of Medical Technologists of the American Society of Clinical 
Pathologists (M.T.) if he so desires. 

BOTANY 

Botany is recognized as either a major or minor field in Arts and Sciences, 
leading to the B.S. degree. The Botany Department is administered by the 



52 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

College of Agriculture, but students register for botany courses and major or 
minor in this subject just as if the department were in the College of Arts 
and Sciences. Course descriptions and further information about the Botany 
Department are given in the catalog for the College of Agriculture. 

Freshmen and sophomores should consult their lower division adviser 
and also the Botany Department adviser, in planning the major program. The 
four lower division courses, General Botany — Bot. 1 and 2, Diseases of Plants 
— Bot. 20, and Plant Taxonomy — Bot. 11, total 14 credit hours and should be 
taken during the first two years. Sufficient upper division courses to give a 
total of 40 credit hours in botany must be taken. Included in these wall be 
Plant Physiology — Bot. 101, Plant Microtechnique — Bot. 110, Plant Anatomy — 
Bot. Ill, Plant Ecology — Bot. 102, and Structure of Economic Plants — Bot. 
115. The botany electives chosen depend, in part, on the student's chief in- 
terest. 

To support the courses in botany, major students are required to take 
General Chemistry — Chem. 1 and 3, Mathematics — Math. 10 and 11 as a mini- 
mum, Physics — Phy. 10 and 11, General Zoology — Zool. 1, General Bacteriology 
— Bact. 1, Genetics — Zool. 104, and 12 hours of a modern language, preferably 
German. 

PSYCHOLOGY 

The Department of Psychology is classed in both the Division of Bio- 
logical Sciences and the Division of Social Sciences, and offers educational 
programs to both these fields. Fm*ther details on the undergraduate program 
in Psychology are given elsewhere in these pages. 

Departmental requirements toward the B.S. degree with a major in 
Psychology are Psych. 1, 106, 145, 150, and Psych. 136 or 148, and Psych. 
180 or 181, plus 9 additional hours in Psychology and/or other departments 
selected in conference with the student's major adviser. A candidate for the 
B.S. degree with a major in Psychology will offer as supporting courses 30 
hours from among the following groups: Mathematics 10, 11, 18, 19, 20, 
21, 130, 132; Physics 10, 11, 60, 104, 105, 109; Zoology 1, 2, 5, 14, 15, 102, 
104. These 30 hours include the 12 that are required by the College of Arts 
and Sciences. The departmental requirements for the Bachelor of Arts 
degree are given elsewhere in these pages. 

ZOOLOGY 

Two courses of study have been established as described below. At least 
thirty-five hours of zoology are required for a major in the department. Of 
these thirty-five hours at least eighteen must be at the 100 level. Zoology 14, 
15, 53, and 55S will not be counted as part of the Zoology major requirements. 
A grade of D in a course in zoology will not be counted toward completing 
the major requirements for graduation. 

Zoology 

Copies of the suggested curricula for majors in zoology who are inter- 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 53 

ested in any phase of animal study, pre-medical training, and pre-dental 
training are available from advisers and from the Zoology office. 

Courses required for all majors in zoology are: Zool. 1, 2 — General 
Zoology and Advanced General Zoology (4, 4); Zool. 5— Comparative Verte- 
brate Morphology (4); Zool. 20 — Vertebrate Embryology (4); Zool. 75 or 
76— Journal Club (1); Zool. 102— General Animal Physiology (4); Zool.

Bot. 2— Second semester of General Botany (4); Chem. 19— Elements of 
Quantitative Analysis (4); or Math. 20, 21— Calculus (4, 4). 

Fisheries 

The aquatic resources of Maryland offer an excellent opportunity for the 
study of fisheries and marine zoology. In addition to the courses specified for 
other majors in zoology, students interested in following the fisheries cur- 
riculum must take: Zool. 118 — Invertebrate Zoology (4); Zool. 125 — Fisheries 
Biology and Management (3); Zool. 126— Shellfisheries (3); and Zool. 127— 
Ichthyology (3). 

Supporting courses must include, in addition to those specified above, 
the following: Chem 15 — Qualitative Analysis (4) ; Chem. 19 — Elements of 
Quantitative Analysis (4); German 1, 2 — Elementary German (3, 3); Ger- 
man 6, 7 — Intermediate Scientific German (3, 3). 

The student in this curriculum is also required to spend part of his 
summers in practical work in fisheries. 

V. THE PHYSICAL SCIENCES 

Curriculum for General Physical Sciences 

This program has been prepared for the student who desires an introduc- 
tion to the physical sciences but whose interest has not yet centered in any 
one field of the physical sciences. The program includes some advanced work 
in Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics, and permits the student to emphasize 
one of these fields without having to meet the full requirements for a major 
in one specific field. The program in suitable for the pre-medical or pre-dental 
student who plans to complete the requirements for the B.S. degree before 
entering medical or dental school. This program is also suitable for the 
woman student who is interested in science and wishes to become a technical 
assistant or technical writer in one of these fields, but who does not plan to 
do graduate work. The program is not recommended for students who may 
later do graduate work in mathematics or in one of the physical sciences. 

The student following this program must meet the general requirements 
for a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences. He should select French 



54 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

or German to meet the foreign language requirement and Speech 7 (or Speech 
1, 2) to fulfill the requirement in Speech. 

Required introductory courses in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences: 
Mathematics 18, 19; Chemistry 1, 3; Physics 10, 11 (or 20, 21). These courses 
must be passed with an average grade of at least C for the student to be 
eligible to continue with this program. 

Required supporting courses for pre-medical or pre-dental students: The 
pre-dental student must include Zoology 1, 2 in his program and must include 
Chemistry 35, 36, 37, 38 in his advanced work in this program. The pre- 
medical student must include Zoology 1, 2, 5, 20 in his program and must in- 
clude Chemistry 19, 35, 36, 37, 38 in his advanced work in this program. 
Students interested in technical writing should take English 7, in addition 
to the courses in English required of all students. 

Advanced courses in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences: The student 
must complete at least 36 semester hours of advanced work selected from the 
departments of Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. Of these credits at 
least 18 must be at the 100 level and taken in at least two of the three de- 
partments. The student should normally take Calculus (Math. 20, 21) in- 
asmuch as practically all the advanced work in Mathematics and Physics re- 
quires Calculus. 

Chemistry 

The science of chemistry is so broad that completion of a well-planned 
course of undergraduate study is necessary before specialization. The cur- 
riculum outlined below describes such a course of study. The sequence of 
courses given should be followed as closely as possible; it is realized, how- 
ever, that some deviation from this sequence may be necessary toward the 
end of the program. All of the courses in chemistry listed, unless otherwise 
designated, are required of students majoring in chemistry. 

First Year: Chem. 1, 3 — General Chemistry (4, 4) ; Math. 18, 19 — Elemen- 
tary Mathematical Analysis (5, 5); Speech 7 — Public Speaking (2). Second

(5-8, 5-8); (English 7 is strongly recommended.) 

Mathematics 

This curriculum offers training in the fundamentals of Mathematics in 
preparation for teaching, industrial work, "or graduate work in Mathematics. 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 55 

No grade of D in the major field will be counted toward completion of 
the requirements for graduation in the mathematics curriculum. An average 
grade of C is required in the supporting courses. 

The mathematics curriculum offers two options depending on the choice of 
electives in the Junior and Senior years. 

Pure Mathematics option. Electives in mathematics must include three 
hours in each of the fields of algebra and geometry. 

Applied Mathematics option. Electives in mathematics must include six 
hours in the fields of algebra and geometry, and at least six hours in the 
field of applied mathematics. Supporting courses will be selected from the 
Physical Sciences or Engineering in consultation with the Head of the de- 
partment of Mathematics. 

Honors in Mathematics 

Students majoring in mathematics who complete freshman and sophomore 
courses in mathematics with distinction are eligible to try for honors in 
mathematics. To receive the honors degree in mathematics, a student must 
(1) complete the curriculum in mathematics with an average grade of B 
in all subjects; (2) earn a creditable grade in Math. 190, 191; (3) pass an 
honors examination in mathematics at the end of the senior year. Students 
who wish to try for honors in mathematics should apply to the Head of the 
Department, preferably by the conclusion of their sophomore year and 
certainly no later than the beginning of their senior year. 

Courses required in major: Math. 18, 19 — Elementary Mathematical 
Analysis (5, 5); Math. 20, 21— Calculus (4, 4); Math. 110, 111— Advanced Cal- 
culus (3, 3) ; Math. 114 — Differential Equations (3) ; and not less than 15 credit 
hours of electives in mathematics. Supporting courses include Phys. 20, 
21 — General Physics (5, 5) and an approved program of at least 12 additional 
hours outside the Department, including at least 6 hours at the 100-level; 
these courses may be in the physical sciences or in another area chosen by 
the student. The foreign language requirement should be satisfied by either 
German or French. 

Physics 

The Physics curriculum is designed for students who desire training in 
the fundamentals of Physics in preparation for graduate work or teaching, 
and for positions in governmental and industrial laboratories. All students 
must take as their introductory physics course either Physics 10, 11, Funda- 
mentals of Physics (4, 4), or Physics 20, 21, General Physics (5, 5). After the 
elementary physics course, courses specifically required as a part of the 
Physics major are Physics 50, 51, Intermediate Mechanics (2, 2); Physics 52,

66 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

6), and Math. 20, 21, Calculus (4, 4). Students who wish to be recommended 
for graduate work in Physics must maintain a B average and should also 
include as many as possible of the following courses: Physics 106, Theoretical 
Mechanics (3); Physics 116, Fundamental Hydrodynamics (3); Physics 120, 
Nuclear Physics (4); Physics 122, Properties of Matter (4); and Math. 110, 
111, Advanced Calculus (3, 3). Recommended course programs are available 
from the Physics Department. Students may major in Physics only if a 
grade of C is attained in each semester of the elementary physics courses 
and in the required mathematics courses. 

VI. PRE-PROFESSIONAL CURRICULA 

COMBINED PROGRAM IN ARTS AND SCIENCES AND LAW 

Some law schools will consider only those applicants who have completed 
a four-year college program leading to the A.B. or B.S. degree. Other law 
schools, including the School of Law of the University of Maryland, will ac- 
cept applicants who have successfully completed a three-year program of 
academic work. Law schools do not prescribe the specific courses which the 
student should take in his pre-law work, but do require that the student follow 
one of the standard programs offered by the undergraduate college. 

Four-year Program: The student who plans to complete the requirements 
for the A.B. or B.S. degree before entering law school should select one 
of the major fields for concentration. Pre-law students most commonly select 
one of the following subjects as their major: American Civilization, Economics, 
English, Government and Politics, History, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, 
Speech. During his first two years, the pre-law student will normally follow 
the General A.B. Curriculum described earlier in these pages. During his 
junior and senior year, the pre-law student will complete the major and 
minor requirements for the A.B. degree. The requirements in the various 
major fields are described elsewhere in this catalog. 

Three-year Program: The student who plans to enter law school at the 
end of his third year should follow the General A.B. Curriculum during his 
first two years. During his junior year he wall complete the requirements, for 
a minor (18 semester hours) in one of the fields of concentration. He will also 
be able to take some additional courses as electives. His program for the 
first three years must include all of the basic courses required for a degree 
from the College of Arts and Sciences and a minor of 18 semester hours as 
approved by his pre-law adviser. He must earn a total of 92 academic semes- 
ter hours, exclusive of the credits in ROTC (men), Health (women), and 
Physical Education required of all undergraduate students. 

Combined degree in Arts and Sciences and Law: The student who suc- 
cessfully completes the three-year program (including the minor) described 
above and who is admitted to the School of Law of the University of Mary- 
land will be eligible for the Bachelor of Arts degree after the successful 
completion of one year of full-time courses in the School of Law in Baltimore 
(or the equivalent in semester hours of work in the Evening Division of the 
School of Law). The completion of a year's work in the Law School consti- 



COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 57 

tutes the student's major. The combined program must include at least 120 
academic semester hours, exclusive of required work in ROTC (men), Health 
(women), and Physical Activities. The student must earn at least a C aver- 
age in all of his work at College Park, and at least a C average in 28 semes- 
ter hours of work in the School of Law. A student who enters the combined 
program with advanced standing must complete the final 30 academic semester 
hours of pre-law work in residence in the College of Arts and Sciences. Eligi- 
ble candidates are recommended for the degree of Bachelor of Arts by the 
Faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences upon the concurrent recommen- 
dation of the Dean of the School of Law. 

The course of study at the School of Law requires three years of full- 
time work for completion. Students who successfully complete the program 
are awarded the degree of Bachelor of Laws. 

COMBINED PROGRAM IN ARTS AND SCIENCES AND DENTISTRY 

Candidates for admission to dental schools should normally plan to take 
at least a three-year undergraduate program. Although the School of Den- 
tistry of the University of Maryland considers some applications from stu- 
dents with only two years of undergraduate preparation, it requires three 
years of the great majority of its candidates and expects these candidates to 
meet the full requirements of the combined degree in Arts and Sciences 
and Dentistry as described below. 

Certain science courses are prescribed for all candidates for dental 
school: Zoology 1, 2; Chemistry 1, 3, 35, 36, 37, 38; Mathematics 10, 11 (or 
18, 19); Physics 10, 11 (or 20, 21). These courses must be included in any 
pre-dental program. The student who wishes to be a candidate at the end of 
bis second year must complete all of these courses Juring the first two years. 
All requirements must be completed by June of the year in which the stu- 
dent expects to enter dental school. 

Neither successful completion of a pre-dental program nor of degree re- 
quirements guarantees admission to a dental school. All dental schools, 
including that of the University of Maryland, have their own admission re- 
quirements and procedures. Dental Schools expect candidates to attain an 
academic average substantially higher than the minimum average required 
for graduation from college. Through its pre-dental advisers and its Com- 
mittee on the Evaluation of Pre-Dental Students this college attempts to 
assist its applicants with their problems. 

Four-year program: The student electing this program should select one 
of the major fields in which the A.B. or B.S. degree is offered. Pre-dental stu- 
dents following the four-year program most commonly select one of the fol- 
lowing subjects as their major field: Bacteriology, General Biological Sciences, 
General Physical Sciences, Psychology, Zoology. These programs are de- 
scribed elsewhere in this catalog. However, a student may meet dental 
school requirements in most of the majors offered in the College of Arts and 
Sciences, provided that he includes in his program the science courses speci- 
fically presciibed by dental schools. The student's pre-dental adviser will 



58 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

assist the student in planning a program which will meet both the dental 
school requirements and also the requirements for the A.B. or B.S. degree. 

Three-year program: The student electing to follow this program must 
complete all the courses specially required by the dental school. He must 
earn a total of 90 academic semester hours in addition to the credits in ROTC 
(men), Health (women), and Physical Activities required of all undergradu- 
ate student. He must complete a minor (18 semester hours) as approved by 
his pre-dental adviser. He must follow very carefully the program as out- 
lined below: 

Freshman year: English 1, 2; Zoology 1, 2; Chemistry 1, 3; Mathematics

COMBINED PROGRAM IN ARTS AND SCIENCES AND MEDICINE 

The student planning to request admission to a medical school must pur- 
sue a course of study which meets the requirements prescribed by the 
Council of Medical Education of the American Medical Association and those 
added or recommended by the particular medical school of his choice. 

Some medical schools will consider only those applicants who will have 
completed a four-year college program and will have earned the A.B. or B.S. 
degree at the time of entrance into medical school. Other medical schools 
will consider applicants who will have completed three years of college work. 
The School of Medicine of the University of Maryland accepts some candi- 
dates who will have completed only three years of college work but looks 
with more favor upon the four-year program for most students. Both the 
four-year program and the three-year program are described below. In both 
programs all required science courses must be completed by June of the year 
in which the student expects to enter medical school. 

Neither successful completion of a pre-medical program nor of degree 
requirements guarantees admission to any medical school. All medical schools, 
including that of the University of Maryland, have their own admission re- 
quirements and procedures. Medical schools expect candidates to have at- 
tained "an academic average substantially higher than the minimum average 
required for graduation from college. Through its Committee on the Evalu- 
ation of Pre-medical Students this college attempts to assist it applicants 
with their problems. 

Four-year Program: The student electing this program should select one 
of the major fields in which the A.B. or B.S. degree is offered. In addition to 
meeting all general degree requirements and the specific requirements of the 
major selected, the pre-medical student must include in his program the fol- 
lowing required pre-medical courses: Zoology 1, 2, 5, 20; Chemistry 1, 3, 19, 
35, 36, 37, 38; Mathematics 10, 11 (or 18, 19); Physics 10, 11 (or 20, 21). 

Pre-medical students, following the four-year program, most commonly 
select one of the following subjects as their major field: Bacteriology, Gen- 
eral Physical Sciences, Psychology, Zoology. These programs are described 
elsewhere in this catalog. However, a student may meet medical school re- 
quirements in most of the majors offered in the College of Arts and Sciences, 
provided that he includes in his program the individual courses specifically 
prescribed by medical schools. The student's pre-medical adviser will assist 
the student in planning a program which will meet both the medical school 
requirements and also the requirements for the A.B. or B.S. degree. 

Three-year program: The student electing to follow this program must 
complete all of the courses specifically required by the medical school. He 
must earn a total of 90 academic semester hours in addition to the credits 
in ROTC, (men), Health, (women), and Physical Activities required of all 
undergraduate students. He must follow very carefully the program as out- 
lined in the following paragraphs.

pre-medical adviser. 

Any student who begins the three-year program may change to the four- 
year program by making a choice of a major field and adjusting his program 
accordingly. However, the student is warned that some courses necessary in 
certain majors must be taken in the sophomore year in order for the student 
to be eligible for the more advanced courses in that field given in the junior 
and senior years. The majority of students would therefore be wise to plan 
a four-year program on entrance and not attempt the highly concentrated 
three-year program. 

Combined degree in Arts and Sciences and Medicine : The student who suc- 
cessfully completes the three-year program (including the minor) described 
above and who is admitted to the School of Medicine of the University of 
Maryland will be eligible for the Bachelor of Science degree after successful 
completion of the first year in the School of Medicine. The completion of a

EDUCATION 



"E ] 



means teaching them to behave as they do not behave. It is not teach- 
ing the youth the shapes of the letters and the tricks of numbers, and then 
leaving them to turn 'their arithmetic to roguery and their literature to lust. 
It means, on the contrary, training them into the perfect exercise and kingly 
continence of their bodies and souls. It is painful, continual and difficult work 
to be done by kindness, by watching, by warning, by precedent, and by praise, 
but above all — by example." — John Ruskin. 



"In our country no man is worthy the honored name of statesman, who 
does not include the highest practicable education of the people in all his 
plans of administration." — Horace Mann. 



"Promote, then, as an object of primary importance institutions for the 
general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government 
gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be 
enlightened." — George Washington. 



"The good education of youth has been esteemed by wise men in all ages 
as the surest foundation of the happiness both of private families and of com- 
monwealths." — Benjamin Franklin.

students of Business, Government and Politics, Economics, Public Ad- 
ministration, Geography, Journalism and Public Relations, Foreign Serv- 
ice and International Relations. Downtown Washington is only twenty-five

than an hour in the other. There is frequent transportation service from Col- 
lege Park to each city. Special arrangements are made to study commercial, 
manufacturing, exporting, and importing agencies and methods in Baltimore. 
Assistance is given qualified students who wish to obtain a first-hand glimpse 
of the farflung economic activities of the national government or to utilize the 
libraries, government departments, and other facilities available in Wash- 
ington.

Aims 

The College of Business and Public Administration offers courses designed 
to prepare young men and women for service in business firms, governmental 
agencies, cooperative enterprises, labor unions, publishing firms, small business 
units, and other organizations requiring effective training in administrative 
skills and techniques, and for the teaching of business subjects, economics, geog- 
raphy, government and politics, and journalism and public relations in high 
schools and colleges. It supplies scientific training in administration to students 
and prospective executives on a professional basis comparable to university 
training in the other professional fields. Administration is regarded as a pro- 
fession. The College of Business and Public Administration offers its students 
courses of instruction which present general principles and techniques of man- 
agement and administration and brings together in systematic form the experi- 
ences and practices of business firms and governmental units. This plan of 
education does not displace practical experience, but supplements and strength- 
ens it by shortening the period of apprenticeship otherwise necessary, and by 
giving a broad and practical knowledge of the major principles, policies, and 
methods of administration. 

During the first half of the college study program the student secures 
a broad foundation upon which to base the professional and the more techni- 
cal courses offered in the last half of the curriculum. The managerial and 
operating points of views are stressed in the advanced courses in production, 
marketing, labor, finance, real estate, insurance, accounting, office manage- 
ment and public administration. The purpose of the work offered is to aid 
the student as a prospective executive in developing his ability to identify and 
to solve administrative and managerial problems; and to adjust himself and 
his organization, policies and practices to changing social, political and 
economic situations. 

The aim of the college is to present and illustrate such sound principles 
of management as are applicable to both big business and small business. 
Large-scale business, because of its possible economies, will be expanded in 
some industries under certain well-known conditions. There are, on the other 
hand, industries and many situations which still call for the small business. 
If these small-scale businesses are to be operated with profit to the owners 
and with satisfactory and economical service to the public, it is imperative 
that authentic principles of administration be applied to them. Sound principles 
of ethical conduct are emphasized at all times throughout the various courses. 

The primary aim of collegiate education for government and business 
services is to prepare for effective management. The College of Business and 
Public Administration, University of Maryland, was established to supply ef- 
fective education in administration to the young men and women whose task 



14 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

will be the guiding of the more complex business enterprises and governmental 
units resulting from industrial, social and political development and expansion. 
Graduation Requirement 

A minimum of 120 semester hours of credit with an average of "C" in 
courses suggested by the College in addition to the specified courses in military 
science, physical activities and hygiene are required for graduation. A mini- 
mum of 57 semester hours of the required 120 hours must be in upper division 
courses. The student is required to have an average of "C" for courses used 
in meeting the quantitative graduation requirements. The time required to 
complete the requirements for the bachelor's degree for the average student is 
eight semesters. A superior student, by carrying more than the average load, 
can complete the work in a shorter peiod of time. 



THE PROGRAM IN AMERICAN CIVILIZATION 

The University considers that it is important for every student to achieve 
an appreciative understanding of this country, its history and its culture. It 
has therefore established a comprehensive program in American Civilization. 
This program is also designed to provide the student with a general educa- 
tional background. 

Work in American Civilization is offered at three distinct academic levels. 
The first level is required of all freshmen and sophomores at the University 
and is described below. The second level is for undergraduate students wish- 
ing to carry a major in this field (see catalog for the College of Arts and 
Sciences) . The third level is for students desiring to do graduate work in 
this field (see catalog for the Graduate School). 

All students receiving a baccalaureate degree from the University of 
Maryland must (except as specific exceptions are noted in printed curricula) 
obtain 24 semester hours of credit in the lower division courses of the Ameri- 
can Civilization Program. Although the courses in the Program are prescribed 
generally, some choice is permitted, especially for students who demonstrate 
in classification tests good previous preparation in one or more of the required 
subjects. 

The 24 semester hours in American Civilization are as follows: 

1. English (12 hours, Eng. 1, 2 and 3, 4 or 5, 6), American History 
(6 hours, Hist. 5, 6), and American Government (3 hours, G. & P. 1) are re- 
quired subjects; however, students who qualify in one, two or all three of these 
areas by means of University administered tests are expected to substitute 
certain elective courses. Through such testing a student may be released 
from 3 hours of English (9 hours would remain an absolute requirement), 
3 hours of American History (3 hours remaining as an absolute requirement), 
and 3 hours of American Government. Students released from 3 hours of 
English will ordinarily take Eng. 21 instead of Eng. 1 and 2. Those released 
from 3 hours in History will ordinarily take Hist. 56 instead of Hist. 5 and 6. 



BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 15 

2. For the 3 additional hours of the 24 hours required, students in the 
College of Business and Public Administration elect one course from the fol- 
lowing group (Elective Group I) : 

Economics 31, Principles of Economics I (Not open to Fresh- 
men). 

Philosophy 1, Philosophy of Modern Man 

Sociology 1, Sociology of American Life 
Students enrolled in the College of Business and Public Administration will 
normally meet this requirement by taking Economics 31 in the Sophomore 
year. 

3. Students who, on the basis of tests, have been released from 3, 6 or 9 
hours in otherwise required courses in English, American History or Ameri- 
can Government (see 1 above), shall select the replacements for these courses 
from any or all of the following groups: (a) more advanced courses in the 
same department as the required courses in which the student is excused, or 
(b) Elective Group I (see 2 above), provided that the same course may not 
be used as both a Group I and a Group II choice, or (c) Elective Group II. 
Group II consists of the following 3-hour courses: 

History 2, History of Modern Europe; either History 51 or 52, The Hu- 
manities; either Music 20, Survey of Music Literature or Art 22, History 
of American Art; Psychology 1, Introduction to Psychology; and Sociology 5, 
Anthopology. 

Degrees 

The University confers the following degrees on students of Business 
and Public Administration: Bachelor of Science, Master of Business Adminis- 
tration, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy. The College has a number 
of graduate assistantships in Business Administration, Economics, Geography, 
Journalism and Public Relations, Government and Politics, and Bureau of 
Business and Economic Research available for qualified graduate students. 
Applications for these assistantships should be made directly to the Dean of 
the College of Business and Public Administration. (See bulletin of Graduate 
School for graduate rules and regulations.) 

Each candidate for a degree must file in the office of the Registrar on a 
date announced for each semester a formal application for a degree. Candi- 
dates for degrees must attend a convocation at which degrees are conferred 
and diplomas are awarded. Degrees are conferred in absentia only in excep- 
tional cases. 

Junior Requirement 

To be classified as a junior a student must have earned 56 semester hours 
of his freshman and sophomore requirements with an average of at least 
"C", plus the required work in military science, hygiene and physical activities 
for the freshman and sophomore years. If a student has better than a "C" 
average and lacks a few credits of having the total of 56, he may be permitted 



16 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

to take certain courses numbered 100 and above providing he has the prerequi- 
sites for these courses and the consent of the Dean. 

Senior Residence Requirement 

After a student has earned acceptable credit to the extent of 90 semester 
hours exclusive of the required work in military science, physical activities, 
and hygiene, either at the University of Maryland or elsewhere, he must earn 
a subsequent total of at least 30 semester hours with an average grade of 
"C" or better at the University of Maryland. No part of these credits may 
be transferred from another institution. Specific requirements for graduation 
in the selected curriculum must be met. 

Programs of Study 

The College offers programs of study in economics, business administra- 
tion, office techniques, office management, public administration, government 
and politics, geography, journalism and public relations, and some combination 
curriculums, e.g., business administration and law, commercial teaching and 
industrial education. Research is emphasized throughout the various programs. 

Professional Objectives 

The executive manager or administrator in modern business enterprises 
and governmental units and agencies should have a clear understanding of: 

(a) the business organizations and institutions which comprise the modern 
business world; 

(b) the political, social, and economic forces which tend to limit or to 
promote the free exercise of his activities; and 

(c) the basic principles which underlie the efficient organization and ad- 
ministration of a business or governmental enterprise. 

In addition, the executive or the prospective executive should: 

(a) be able to express his thoughts and ideas in correct and concise 
English; 

(b) have some useful knowledge of the physical world in which he 
operates. 

(c) have a knowledge of the development of modern civilization through 
a study of history, government, economics, and other social studies; 

(d) have a sympathetic understanding of people gained through a study 
of sociology, geography, politics, labor relations, marketing, and other subjects. 

If the executive is to be successful in solving current and future busi- 
ness and governmental problems, he should be skilled in the scientific method 
of collecting, analyzing, and classifying pertinent facts in the most significant 
manner, and then, on the basis of these facts, be able to draw sound conclusions 



BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 17 

and to formulate general principles which may be used to guide his present 
and future professional or vocational conduct. In other words, probably the 
most important qualities in a successful executive are: 

(a) the ability to arrive at sound judgments; 

(b) the capacity to formulate effective plans and policies, and the imagina- 
tion and ability to devise organizations, methods, and procedures for executing 
them. 

Facilities Furnished 

The teaching staff and the curriculums of the College of Business and Pub- 
lic Administration have been selected and organized for the purpose of pro- 
viding a type of professional and technical training that will aid the capable 
and ambitious student in developing his potential talents to their full capacity. 

The college study program on both the undergraduate and graduate levels 
presuppose effective training in English, history, government, science, and 
mathematics.* The program of study for any individual student may be so 
arranged as to meet the needs of those preparing for specific lines of work, 
such as accounting, advertising, banking, foreign trade, industrial administra- 
tion, marketing administration, personnel administration, office management, 
real estate practice, insurance, journalism, public relations, government em- 
ployment, office techniques, teaching, and research. 

Military Instruction 

All male students unless specifically exempted under University rules are 
required to take basic air force ROTC training for a period of two years. The 
successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for graduation but it 
must be taken by all eligible students during the first two years of attendance 
at the University, whether they intend to graduate or not. Transfer students 
who do not have the required two years of military training will be required 
to complete the course or take it until graduation whichever occurs first. 

Selected students who meet the requirements of the Military Department 
may carry advanced Air Force ROTC courses during their Junior and Senior 
years and may receive, under conditions determined by the Military, a regular 
or reserve commission in the United States Air Force. 

Costs 

Actual annual costs of attending the University include: $165.00 fixed 
charges: $75.00 special fees; $400.00 board; $140 to $170 lodging for Maryland 
residents, or $180 or $220 for residents of other States and Countries; and lab- 



•The major portion of this training is usually secured in the four years of high school 
and the first two years of college. 



18 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

oratory fees which vary with the laboratory course pursued. A matriculation 
fee of $10.00 is charged all new students. A charge of $250.00 is assessed to 
all students who are non-residents of the State of Maryland. 

For a more detailed statement of costs, write to the Director of Publica- 
tions for a copy of the "General Information Issue" of the Catalog. 

Admissions 

All students desiring to enroll in the College of Business and Public Ad- 
ministration must apply to the Director of Admissions of the University of 
Maryland at College Park. 

In selecting students more emphasis will be placed upon good marks and 
other indications of probable success in college than upon a fixed pattern 
of subject matter. In general, four units of English and one unit each of 
Social Studies and Natural Sciences are required. One unit each of Algebra 
and Plane Geometry is desirable. While Foreign Language is desirable for 
certain programs no Foreign Language is required for entrance. Fine Arts, 
Trade and Vocational subjects are acceptable as electives.

BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 19 

Delta Sigma Pi was founded at New York University on November ?, 1307. 
The Gamma Sigma of Maryland chapter was chartered at the University of 
Maryland in 1950. Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity organized to 
foster the study of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social 
activity, and the association of students for their mutual advancement by re- 
search and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the commercial world 
and students of commerce; and to further a high standard of commercial ethics 
and culture, as well as the civic and commercial welfare of the community. 
Members are selected from the College of Business and Public Administration 
on the basis of leadership, scholastic standing, and promise of future business 
success. 

The Pi Sigma Alpha Fred Hays Memorial Award in Government and 
Politics is awarded annually by the Department of Government and Politics to 
the graduating senior who earns the highest grades among the majors in Gov- 
ernment and Politics of the graduating class. The award is a cash award, not 
less than $25.00, provided by an anonymous alumnus. This award is named 
in memory of Fred Hays, an honor graduate and former student president of 
Pi Sigma Alpha, the honorary Political Science fraternity. Fred Hays was 
killed in action in Korea. 

The Alumni Association of the University provides a scholarship of $250. 

Baltimore Sunpapers Scholarship in Journalism. The Board of Trustees 
of the A. S. Abell Foundation, Inc. has contributed $500 to provide a scholar- 
ship in journalism to be awarded to a worthy senior in the College of Business 
and Public Administration who is majoring in editorial journalism. 

The Maryland Motor Truck Association, Inc. provides an award of $500

lege of Business and Public Administration who is concentrating in trans- 
portation with a major interest in motor transportation. 

The Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants makes avail- 
able a scholarship of $200 for an outstanding student in accounting who is 
registered in the College. 



STUDY PROGRAMS IN THE COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND 
PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 

A student in the College can so arrange his grouping and sequence ©f 
courses as to form a fair degree of concentration in one of the I»epartments. 
When, however, he wishes to become a specialist in any one of the depart-- 



20 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

ments, he should plan to continue his subjects on to the graduate level, work- 
ing toward either the Master's or the Doctor of Philosophy degree. 



I. BUSINESS ORGANIZATION AND ADMINISTRATION 

Business organizations are set up primarily for the purpose of producing 
and distributing goods and services. Modern business administration requires 
a knowledge of and skill in the use of effective tools for the control of organi- 
zations, institutions, and operations. The curriculums of the Department of 
Business Organization and Administration emphasize the principles and prob- 
lems of the development and the use of policies and organizations, and the 
methods, techniques and procedures of execution, in other words, the essence 
of Administration and Management. 

Study Programs in the Department 

The programs of study in the Department of Business Organization and 
Administration are so arranged as to facilitate concentrations according to 
the major functions of business organization. This plan is not, however, based 
on the assumption that these major divisions are independent units, but rather 
that each is closely related and dependent on the others. Every student in Busi- 
ness Administration, therefore, is required to complete satisfactorily a mini- 
mum number of required basic subjects in economics and in each of the major 
functional fields. Each graduate upon completion of the requirements for the 
bachelor's degree finds himself well grounded in the theory and practice of 
administration. There are five commonly recognized major business functions, 
viz: production, marketing, finance, labor relations, and control. 

The function of control may be thought of as comprising two sectors, viz. 
internal and external. Internal control has to do with men, materials, and 
operations. External control is secured through the force of laws, and court, 
board and commission decisions, also through the influence of custom and 
public opinion. Management endeavors to make adequate adjustments to these 
forces. Courses in law and public administration, for example, aid in giving 
the students an understanding of the problems, devices, and methods of ex- 
ternal or "social" control. 

Freshman and Sophomore Requirements 

During the first half of the program of study each student in the Depart- 
ment of Business Organization and Administration is expected to complete 
the following basic subjects, except as indicated in a particular curriculum: 

Required Courses : Semester Hours 

Eng. 1, 2 — Composition and Readings in American Literature 3 6

Military Training and Physical Activities for Men 16 

Health and Physical Activities for Women 8 

Total specified requirements 66 or 74 

A minimum of forty per cent of the total number of credits required for 
graduation must be in subjects with designations other than Business Adminis- 
tration; forty per cent of the required 120 semester hours of academic work 
must be in Business Administration subjects, the other twenty per cent may 
be in either group or comprise a combination of the two groups of subjects. An 
average of "C" in Business Administration courses is required for graduation. 

Freshmen who expect to make a concentration in foreign trade, or who 
plan to enter public service abroad, should elect an appropriate foreign lan- 
guage. If a foreign language is elected, 12 semester hours or the equivalent 
must be completed with an acceptable grade. 

Junior and Senior Requirements 

During the junior and senior years each student in the department is 
required to complete in a satisfactory manner the following specified courses 
unless the particular curriculum being followed provides otherwise: 

Econ. 140 — Money and Banking 3 

B. A. 140 — Financial Management 3 

B. A. 150a — Marketing Principles and Organization 3 

B. A. 150 — Marketing Management 3 

Econ. 160 — Labor Economics 3 

B. A. 160 — Personnel Management 3 

B. A. 130 — Elements of Statistics 3 

B. A. 180, 181 — Business Law I, II 8 



Total 29 

The remaining credits for juniors and seniors may be used to meet the 
requirements for one of the special concentration programs, for example, in 
Public Administration, Foreign Service, Commercial Teaching, and in the 
fields of Business Administration, such as: Accounting and Statistics, Produc- 
tion Administration, Marketing, Advertising, Retailing, Purchasing, Foreign 
Trade, Transportation, Labor Relations, Real Estate, Insurance, Investment 
and General Finance. Juniors and seniors may elect appropriate Secretarial 
Training courses.

22 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Combined Administration and Law Program 

When a student elects the combination Administration-Law curriculum, 
he must complete in a satisfactory manner the specific requirements listed 
for the first three years of the general curriculum in administration plus 
enough electives to equal a minimum of 92 credits exclusive of military science, 
physical activities and hygiene, with an average grade of at least "C." The

1. Accounting and Statistical Control Study Program 

Internal control in modern business and governmental organizations is a 
major over-all administrative function. The rapid growth in size and com- 
plexity of current governmental units and business enterprises has emphasized 
the importance of the problems of control in management. In order to control 
intelligently and effectively the manifold activities of these units, it is neces- 
sary to establish an organization, formulate policies, and develop methods of 
procedures. In order to perform satisfactorily these managerial activities, it 
is necessary to have pertinent facts concerning the operations of the various 
units, divisions, and departments. It is the function of the accounting and 
statistical departments to secure, analyze, classify, and interpret these facts. 

This study program is designed to give the student a broad training in 
administrative control supplemented by specific technical training in the prob- 



1 See American Civilization Program, page 14. 



24 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

lems, procedures, methods and techniques of accounting and statistics. If the 
program is followed diligently, the student may prepare himself for a career 
as a public accountant, tax specialist, cost accountant, auditor, budget officer, 
comptroller, credit manager, or treasurer. 

In order to provide for practical experience arrangements have been made 
with firms of certified public accountants in Baltimore, New York and the Dis- 
trict of Columbia for apprenticeship training in the field of public accounting. 
This training is provided between semesters of the senior year (approximately 
January 15 to February 15), and for the semester immediately following 
graduation. A student may also elect to take one semester of apprenticeship 
training before graduation. 

The following study program provides courses for those wishing to 

concentrate in this important field: 

Students who select a concentration in accounting and statistics follow 
the general study program in the freshman and sophomore years.

2. Financial Administration 

A nation with a highly developed industrial system requires an effective 
financial organization. Production and marketing activities of business enter- 
prises must be financed; a large volume of consumer purchases depend on 
credit, and the activities of local, state, and federal government depend, in 
large part, on taxation and borrowing. To meet these needs a complicated 
structure of financial institutions, both private and public, has evolved together 
with a wide variety of financial instruments. The methods used are equally 
varied and complicated. Since the financing service is so pervasive throughout 
our economic life and because it is an expense which must be borne by the 
ultimate purchaser, the management of the finance function is endowed with 
a high degree of public interest. 

This study program is designed to give the student fundamental informa- 
tion concerning financing methods, institutions, and instruments; and to aid him 
in developing his ability to secure and evaluate pertinent facts, and to form 
sound judgments with reference to financial matters. Through a wise selection 
of subjects the student who selects this curriculum may prepare himself for 
positions in the commercial, savings, and investment banking fields, invest- 
ment management; corporate financial management; real estate financing; and 
insurance. A student may qualify himself to enter government service, e.g., in 
departments regulating banking operations, international finance, the issuance 
and sales of securities, and a number of financial corporations owned and 
operated or controlled by the government. 

Students wishing to form a concentration in Financial Administration 
should follow the general study program for the freshman and sophomore 
years, the program for the junior and senior years is outlined as follows: 



•C. P. A. Problems is recommended for students who plan to go into public a> count- 
lag. Such students should plan their study program so as to meet the professional exami- 
nation requirements of the State in which they expect to take the examination or to practice.

3. Industrial Administration 

This curriculum is designed to acquaint the student with the problems of 
organization and control in the field of industrial management. Theory and 
practice with reference to organization, policies, methods, processes, and tech- 
niques are surveyed, analyzed, and criticized. The student becomes familiar 
with the factors that determine plant location and layout, types of buildings, 
and the major kinds of machines and processes utilized, as well as effective 
methods and devices for the selection and utilization of men, materials and 
machines. 

The courses, in addition to those required of all students in the college, 
which will aid the undergraduate student in preparing himself for a useful 
place in this field of effort are:

4. Insurance and Real Estate 

Today both insurance and real estate are fields which prefer university 
trained persons. In insurance, opportunities are available in the home offices 
and in the field to persons who will ultimately specialize in life, property, or 
casualty insurance. In real estate, a group of specialist — real estate brokers, 
appraisers, property managers, and persons handling the financing of real 
estate — are now recognized. A proper arrangement of couses by a student 
will provide academic preparation toward the examinations for Chartered Life 
Underwriter (C.L.U.), Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (C.P.C.U.), 
and new professional requirements in real estate. Also, from a purely personal 
or family viewpoint these courses can be of immense value. 

Students who select a concentration in insurance and real estate should 
follow the general study program for the freshman and sophomore years. 
The program for the junior and senior years is outlined below.

5. Marketing Administration 

Modern business administration is concerned largely with marketing ac- 
tivities. Buying and selling of products and services comprise the major 
portion of the time and energies of a large group of our population. The 
ideals of our system of private property, individual initiative and free enter- 
prise are closely related to present-day marketing organization and practice. 
Effective solutions of the problems of marketing are necessary to the success 
of the individual business enterprise and for the welfare of the consumer. 
If the costs of distribution are to be reduced or kept from rising unduly, it is 
necessary that careful study be made of the organization, policies, methods, 
and practices of advertising, selling, purchasing, merchandising, transporta- 
tion, financing, storing, and other related marketing activities, and appropriate 
action taken by qualified technicians and executives. 

The purpose of the marketing administration program is to give the stu- 
dent an opportunity to analyze, evaluate and otherwise study the problems 
connected with marketing institutions, organizations, policies, methods, and 
practices. The student who elects this field of concentration may develop his 
aptitudes, on the technical level, for research, selling, buying, and preparing 
advertising copy, and on the administrative level develop his abilities for 
organizing, planning, and directing the various activities in the field of 
marketing. 

Thoughtful selection of courses from the following lists, in addition to 
those required of all students in business administration, will aid the student 
in preparing himself for an effective position in the field of marketing. He 
may form a concentration in:

6. Personnel Administration and Labor Economics 

Recent development of large scale operation on the part of both private 
enterprise and government has emphasized the growing importance of personnel 
relationships. Successful operation depends on harmonious cooperation between 
employer and employee. The interests of the public, the owners, and the 
management, as well as those of the employees, may be greatly affected by 
the solutions evolved in any given case of personnel relationship. The growth 
of large-scale, centrally controlled labor organizations and the increased par- 
ticipation of governmental agencies in labor disputes have created problems 
for which business management, union officials, and government representa- 
tives have been, on the whole, ill-prepared to solve satisfactorily. The govern- 
ment, the unions, and business need men and women qualified to deal effectively 
with these problems. They should have broad training and technical informa- 
tion in the fields of business and public administration, economics, and psychol- 
ogy, together with suitable personalities. They must be able to approach these 
problems with an open mind, unbiased by personal and class prejudices. 

Personnel administration which has to do with the direction of human 
effort, is concerned with securing, maintaining, and utilizing, an effective work- 
ing force. People adequately trained in personnel administration find employ- 
ment in business enterprises, governmental departments, governmental corpora- 
tions, educational institutions and charitable organizations. 

A student may select from the following courses those which will, in 
addition to those required of all students in business administration, best 
prepare him for the kind of personnel work he wishes to enter. 



fThese courses are specific requirements for students taking a concertation In Foreign

7. Transportation Administration 

The problems of transportation administration are complex and far reach- 
ing. The student preparing for this type of work should be well grounded in 
economics, government, and business administration, as well as being pro- 
ficient in the use of the technical tools of the profession. Rail, highway, 
water, and air transportation are basic to our economic life, in fact, to our 
very existence. This curriculum gives considerable emphasis to air trans- 
portation. 

The following courses, in addition to those required of all students in the 
college will aid the student in preparing himself for a useful place in the fields 
of air, water, highway, and railway transportation. This curriculum besides 
preparing for positions with cariers also fits the student for industrial traffic 
management, trade association and government work in transportation. (To 
major in Transportation Administration the student must complete 15 hours of 
the courses listed below including B.A. 171) :

economic, political and social life has been developing for a number of years so 
that now the government is the largest business enterprise in the country. In 
addition to the Federal Government, State and Local Government agencies have 
called upon the universities to aid in training young men or women for effective

II. ECONOMICS 

The program of studies in the field of Economics is designed to meet the 
needs of students who wish to concentrate either on a major or minor scale in 
this division of the Social Sciences. Students who expect to enroll in the 
professional schools and those who are planning to enter the fields of Business 
or Public Administration, or Foreign Service, or Social Service Administration, 
will find courses in economics of considerable value to them in their later work. 
A student of economics should choose his courses to meet the requirements 
for his major objective, or the Master of Arts, or a Doctor of Philosophy 
degree. (He should consult the bulletin of the Graduate School for the general

credit are B.A. 130, 132, 133, 164, 184, 189. 

Economics majors enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences must, of 
course, fulfill all the specific requirements of that college, including 12 semester 
hours of Foreign Language and 12 semester hours of Natural Science and 
Mathematics. 

Economics majors enrolled in the College of Business and Public Adminis- 
tration may elect to take a foreign language or, in lieu of Foreign Language, 
may take B.A. 10 and 11 and Geog. 1 and 2. All B.P.A. students must take 6 
semester hours of Mathematics, but may substitute B.A. 20 and 21 for 
Natural Science. 

A student who elects Economics as a major will normally have earned 10 
semester hours credit in the lower division courses in Economics prior to begin-

ning the advanced work of the junior year. These lower division courses must 
be completed with an average grade of not less than "C". 

The specific courses comprising the student's program of study should be 
selected with the aid of a faculty adviser in terms of the student's objectives 
and major interest. Attention is directed to requirements under the Ameri- 
can Civilization Program, p. 14.

III. FOREIGN SERVICE AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS 

If the student expects to enter the foreign service, he should be well 
grounded in the language, geography, history, and politics of the region of his 
anticipated location as well as in the general principles and practices of 
organization and administration. It should be recognized that only a limited 
training can be secured during the undergraduate period. When more special- 
ized or more extensive preparation is required, graduate work should be 
planned. The individual program in either instance, however, should be worked 
out under the guidance of a faculty adviser. The following study program 
is offered as a guide in the selection of subjects. Attention is directed to 
requirements under the American Civilization Program, p. 14.

IV. GEOGRAPHY 

This curriculum is designed to aid the student in securing the facts con- 
cerning the major geographical areas of the world and in studying and 
analyzing the manner in which these facts affect economic, political, and 
social activities. The student interested in international trade, international 
political relations, diplomacy, overseas governments, and national aspirations 
will find the courses in this department of great practical value. Work is 
offered on both the undergraduate and the graduate levels. 

Students who expect to enroll in the engineering and professional 
schools and those who are planning to enter the fields of Business and 
Public Administration, or Foreign Service, will find courses in geography 
of material value to them in their later work. Openings exist for well- 
trained geographers in government service, in universities, colleges, and high 
schools, as well as in private business. A student of geography should choose 
his courses to meet the requirements for his major objective, be it undergradu- 
ate major or minor, or a Master of Arts, or a Doctor of Philosophy degree. 
He should consult the bulletin of the Graduate School for the general require- 
ments for the advanced degrees. 

Requirements ■ for an Undergraduate Major in Geography 

A student majoring in geography is required to complete satisfactorily 
120 semester hours of work in addition to the required work in military sctience, 
hygiene, and physical activities. A general average of at least "C" is re- 
quired for graduation. Only colurses in which the student receives a grade 
of "C" or above will be counted toward the major. 

The specific requirements for the geography major are: 

I. Geog. 10 and 11 (3,3), or equivalent; Geog. 30 (3); Geog. 35 (3); 
Geog. 40 and 41 (3,3) ; Geog. 170 (3) and 18 hours in other Geography courses 
numbered 100 to 199, of which 6 hours must be in non-regional courses; a 
total of 39 hours in Geography. 



BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 35 

II. Social Sciences— G. & P. 1 (3) ; Econ. 31 and 32 (3, 3) ; History 5 
and 6 (3, 3) ; Soc. 105 (3) ; a total of 18 semester hours. 1 

III. Natural Sciences— Botany 1 and 113 or 102 (4, 2 or 3) ; Agron. 114 
or equivalent (4); Chem. 1 (4). Total of 13 (14) semester hours. 

IV. English— Eng. 1 and 2 (3, 3) and 3, 4, or 5, 6 (3, 3) ; Speech 18, 19 
(1, 1) ; a total of 14 semester hours. 1 

V. Foreign Language and Literature — 12 semester hours in one lan- 
guage, unless an advanced course is taken. 

VI. Military Science, Hygiene, and Physical Activities. The present 
University requirement is 16 semester hours in Military Science and Physical 
Activities for able-bodied male students. Women students are required to take 
8 semester hours credit in hygiene and physical activities. 

A student who elects geography as a major must have earned eighteen 
semester hours credit in the prerequisite courses in geography prior to be- 
ginning the advanced work of the junior year. These are normally taken dur- 
ing the freshman and sophomore years. Only courses in which the student 
receives a grade, of "C" or above will be counted toward the major. 

A minor in geography should consist of Geog. 10 and 11 (3, 3), Geog. 30 
(3) and such other courses as the major adviser deems suitable. 

For the guidance of those who expect to do graduate work in geography, 
it should be emphasized that the Department of Geography is particularly 
interested in the appraisal of natural resources in relation to economic, social 
and political developments; it aims to encourage study of the natural resource 
base of the culture of an area. This necessitates, on the one hand, an ele- 
mentary knowledge of certain of the physical sciences as a basis for the 
physical aspects of geographic study and resource analysis. On the other 
hand, a certain amount of knowledge of economics, of sociology and of 
political organization is necessary in order to understand stages of resource 
utilization and the social consequences. 

The specific courses comprising the student's program of studies should 
be selected with the aid of a faculty adviser from the Department of Geography 
in terms of the student's objective and major interests. Attention is directed 
to requirements under the American Civilization Program, page 14. 

Special study programs are available for those who wish to concentrate 
in cartography, and for those who wish to prepare for geographic work in 
planning agencies.

VI. JOURNALISM AND PUBLIC RELATIONS 

The department offers two professional majors: one in editorial journalism, 
for those who seek beginning news jobs upon graduation; the other in public 
relations, for those who plan to work in public relations, in public information, 
or on company publications. 

Although a minor is not permitted in this college, a student may take aa 
many as 12 semester hours in a subject or field other than his major. Special- 
ized jobs are most attractive financially. Journalism majors ordinarliy elect 
secondary concentrations in such fields as agriculture, home economics, busi- 
ness administration, advertising, foreign language, science, social and political 
sciences, psychology, philosophy. Public relations majors choose theirs from 
business administration, advertising, political and social sciences, psychology, 
foreign language. Other electives may be approved by the advisor in this 
department. 

Office Techniques may be taken for lower-division elective credit (courses 
numbered below 100). Since all work in the technical courses of the Depart- 
ment of Journalism and Public Relations is typewritten, those who cannot 
type at least 35 words per minute should enroll in O. T. 1 before taking 
Journalism 10. Women planning to seek combination journalism-secretarial 
or public relations-secretarial jobs upon graduation may take typing and short- 
hand for lower-division elective credit. 

Since 57 hours of upper-division work (courses numbered 100 or more) 
are required for graduation in this department, the student should use his 
electives and required courses the first two years to wok off all prerequisites 
for his upper-division studies. No lower-division course can substitute for an 
upper-division elective. 

To enroll in an upper-division course, the student must have accumulated 
at least 56 hours of academic work (exclusive of R.O.T.C. and Physical Ac- 
tivities), with an over-all grade average of at least 2. (C). 

To enroll as an upper-division major in this department, a student must 
have earned at least C in both Journalism 10 and 11. A major who makes less 
than a C in an upper-division required course is asked to repeat the course 
and/or change his major. 

A student may declare his major in this department when he enrolls in it 
at the beginning of any semester, and ordinarily he will be advised from that 
time until graduation by the same advisor in the department. In no case, how- 
ever, can one be graduated with a major in this department without having 
spent at least four semesters as a major in one of its curricula. 



BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 39 

Majors are urged to work on a student publication throughout their col- 
lege residence, and to obtain professional experience in the summers. 

The department maintains close working relations with professionals and 
their organizations in this area. One of the purposes is to provide speakers, 
trips, laboratories, and other types of training for students enrolled in the 
department's technical courses. The student is notified in advance of each 
event, and his participation is required unless it happens to conflict with one 
of his scheduled classes. 

A required part of the journalism major's education consists of training 
on the Baltimore Sunpapers or Baltimore News-Post. 

Advanced reporting students spend one afternoon a week with Sun report- 
ers on police and city hall beats; advanced editing students spend one after- 
noon a week at the central copy desk or at the rewrite desk. 

Some journalism majors serve as "stringers" in the special coverage of 
the campus maintained by the Sunpapers and the News-Post. A $500 annual 
Baltimore Sun journalism scholarship is available to seniors. 

Outside work necessitates enrollment in less than a normal program of 
study, and in no case should the student attempt to work full time and take 
more than a course or two. 

Listed below are the required curricula in journalism and in public rela- 
tions. Each curriculum requires a minimum of 33 hours in the department, and 
not more than 40 hours in the department is permitted.

VII. OFFICE TECHNIQUES AND MANAGEMENT 
1. Office Management 

With the rapidly mounting volume of office work now being done, and the 
rapid increase in the number of office workers required to do it, effective office 
management and supervision is needed. Despite the current popular opinion 
that the office manager needs to know only a number of systems and machines, 
there is an ever-growing group of executives who believe that the management 
and supervision of an office is quite as important a job as the management 
of a factory or any other industrial enterprise. 

Any young man or woman entering business need have no hesitancy in 
preparing himself for the position of office manager, for that position has 
proved a stepping stone to positions of great responsibility for many of our 
present executives. 

The student interested in this field will find the following required courses 
with the suggested electives under the guidance of the adviser, a valuable aid 
in preparing for positions in this field. Attention is directed to requirements 
under the American Civilization Program on page 14.

2. Office Techniques 

The purpose of this curriculum is not only to furnish merely technical or 
vocational training, but also, to aid the student in developing his natural apti- 
tudes for secretarial and administrative positions. The development of the 
student's capacity to plan, organize, direct, and execute is the guiding princi- 
ple followed in this curriculum. This program of study will appeal to the 
young man or woman who is ambitious, naturally capable, and willing to 
work. It will also appeal to those who realize that positions in secretarial 
service require much more than merely skill in typewriting and stenography. 
These are essential tools, but knowledge and skill in other subjects are as im- 
portant for the more responsible positions. 

Placement Examination 

Students with one or more years of college, high school, or equivalent 
training in shorthand and/or typewriting are required to take a placement 
examination in those subjects at the time of their first registration in a 
shorthand or typewriting course at the University. 

Credit will be given only for the work done in residence. 

Record of Competency 

Students must make a grade of "C" in each course in the Office Techniques 
sequence before they may progress to the next advanced course. A major earn- 
ing less than a C grade in an advanced course, is asked to repeat the course. 

The following program of study is designed to give the capable student an 
opportunity to develop his potential aptitudes to an effective end. Attention is 
directed to requirements under the American Civilization Program on page 14.

Combined Secretarial Training and Business Teaching Curriculum 

Capable students may elect courses offered by the College of Education 
in such a manner as to qualify themselves for commercial teaching in high 
schools. 

VIII. BUREAU OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC REASEARCH 

The Bureau of Business and Economic Research is recognized as the 
laboratory for the practical study of business and economic problems. As 
such, it has three principal functions: first, to train students in the field of 
business and economic research; second, to disseminate information concerning 
business and economic conditions in Maryland, or which affect Maryland inter- 
ests, and third, to give active research assistance to interested business firms, 
governmental units, and citizen groups. 

Through the facilities of the Bureau qualified interested students can ob- 
tain practical experience in research work. This involves the application of 
techniques and principles studied in the class room to actual business and 
governmental problems. 

The Bureau — through its direct contact with business, government, labor 
and the professions and in its research into problems in these fields — serves as 
an important source of information relative to business and economic con- 
ditions and developments in this region. This information is made available, 
in part, by means of Bureau publications and, in part, by direct inquiry to the 
Bureau. This service is supplemented by active cooperation with individual 
business firms and citizen organizations within the state who request assistance 
in the study of specific problems which are recognized as having an important 
bearing upon community welfare. The Bureau welcomes the opportunity to be 
of real service to such organizations. 

IX. BUREAU OF GOVERNMENTAL RESEARCH 

The Bureau of Governmental Research was organized in 1947, then called 
the Bureau of Public Administration. It is closely allied, both in function and 
personnel, with the Department of Government and Politics. The Department 
of Government and Politics is the teaching agency; the Bureau of Government- 
al Research is the research agency. The Bureau's activities relate primarily 
to the problems of state and local government in Maryland. The Bureau 
engages in research and publishes findings with reference to local, state and 
national government. It undertakes surveys and offers its assistance and 
service to units of government in Maryland. Finally, it serves as a clearing 
house of information for the benefit of Maryland state and local government. 
The Bureau furnishes an opportunity for qualified interested students to 
secure practical experience in research in government problems.

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 

Vernon E. Anderson, Ph.D., Dean 
George W. Denemark, Ed.D., Assistant Dean 

THE College of Education meets the needs of the following classes of stu- 
dents: (1) persons preparing to teach in secondary schools, elementary 
schools, kindergartens, and nursery schools; (2) present or prospective ele- 
mentary teachers who wish to supplement their preparation; (3) students 
preparing for educational work in the trades and industries; (4) graduate stu- 
dents preparing for teaching, supervisory, or administrative positions; (5) 
students whose major interests are in other fields, but who desire courses in 
education. 

SPECIAL FACILITIES AND ACTIVITIES 

Research and Teaching Facilities 

Because of the location of the University in the suburbs of the nation's 
capital, unusual facilities for the study of education are available to its stu- 
dents and faculty. The Library of Congress, the library of the U .S. Office of 
Education, and special libraries of other government agencies are accessible, 
as well as the information services of the National Education Association, 
American Council on Education, U. S. Office of Education, and other institu- 
tions, public and private. The school systems of the District of Columbia, 
Baltimore, and the counties of Maryland offer generous cooperation. 

The Institute for Child Study 

The Institute for Child Study carries on the following activities: (1) it 
undertakes basic research in human development; (2) it digests and synthesizes 
research findings from the many sciences that study human beings; (3) it 
plans, organizes, and provides consultant service programs of direct child 
study by in-service teachers in individual schools or in municipal, county or 
state systems; (4) it offers field training to a limited number of properly 
qualified doctoral students, preparing them to render expert consultant service 
to schools and for college teaching of human development. Inquiries should be 
addressed to Director, Institute for Child Study. 

The Workshop on Child Development and Education 

The College of Education operates a Workshop on Child Development and 
Education for six w T eeks each summer. Requiring full-time work of all par- 
ticipants it provides opportunities for (1) study and synthesis of scientific 
knowledge about children and youth; (2) training in the analysis of case 
records; (3) training for study-group leaders for in-service child study pro- 
grams; (4) planning in-service programs of child study for teachers and pre- 
service courses and laboratory experiences for prospective teachers; (5) an- 
alysis of the curricular, guidance, and school organization implications oC 
scientific knowledge about human development and behavior. Special announce- 



COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 17 

merits of the workshop are available about March 15 of each year and advance 
registration is required because the number of participants must be limited. 
Inquiries should be addressed to the Director, Workshop on Child Development 
and Education. 

Industrial Education Department 

The Industrial Education Department is housed in a new building known 
as the J. Milton Patterson Building. The facilities of this building are devoted 
exclusively to the work of the Department. There are ten shops, a drafting 
room, library, conference room and two classrooms. All of the shops are ade- 
quately equipped with modern tools and machines. 

The University of Maryland Nursery-Kindergarten School 

The University of Maryland operates a nursery-kindergarten school on the 
campus in which students majoring in childhood education receive training and 
practical experience. 

Professional and Pre-professional Organizations 

The College of Education sponsors two professional organizations: Phi 
Delta Kappa, the national professional fraternity for men in Education, and 
Iota Lambda Sigma, the national honorary fraternity in Industrial Education. 
Both fraternities have large and active chapters and are providing outstanding 
professional leadership in their fields of service. 

The College of Education also sponsors a Chapter of the Future Teachers 
of America, a department of the National Education Association. This chapter 
is open to under graduate students on the College Park campus. 

Courses Outside of College Park 

Through the College of Special and Continuation Studies, a number of 
courses in education are offered in Baltimore and elsewhere. These courses are 
chosen to meet the needs of groups of students in various centers. In these 
centers, on a part-time basis, a student may complete a part of the work 
required for an undergraduate or graduate degree. 

Announcements of such courses may be obtained by addressing requests to 
the Dean, College of Special and Continuation Studies, College Park, Md. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Requirements for Admission 

All students desiring to enroll in the College of Education must apply to 
the Director of Admissions of the University of Maryland at College Park. 

In selecting students more emphasis will be placed upon good marks and 
other indications of probable success in college rather than upon a fixed pat- 
tern of subject matter. Four (4) units of English and 1 unit each of Social and 



18 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Natural Sciences and Mathematics are required. One unit of Plane Geometry, 
two units of Natural Sciences, and two units of Social Sciences are desirable 
for a program that permits the greatest amount of flexibility in meeting the 
requirements of various College of Education curricula. While Foreign 
Language is desirable for certain programs, no Foreign Language is required 
for entrance. Fine Arts, Trade and Vocational subjects are acceptable as 
electives. 

Students are referred to the "General Information Catalog" for a com- 
plete statement of requirements for admission to the different curricula in the 
College of Education. 

Candidates for admission whose high school or college records are con- 
sistently low are strongly advised not to seek admission to the College of 
Education. 

General Information 

For information in reference to the University grounds, buildings, equip- 
ment, library facilities, requirements in American Civilization, definition of 
resident and non-resident, regulation of studies, degrees and certificates, tran- 
scripts of records, student health and welfare, living arrangements in the 
dormitories, off-campus housing, meals, University Counseling Service, scholar- 
ships and student aid, athletics and recreation, student government, honors 
and awards, religious denominational clubs, fraternities, societies and special 
clubs, the University band, student publications, University Post Office and 
Supply Store, write to the Editor of Publications for the Catalog of General- 
Information. 

Military Instruction 

All male students, unless specifically exempted under University rules, are- 
required to take basic Air Force R. 0. T. C. training for a period of two years. 
The successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for graduation but it. 
must be taken by all eligible students during the first two years of attendance 
at the University, whether they intend to graduate or not. Transfer students 
who do not have the required two years of military training will be required to- 
complete the course or take it until graduation, which ever occurs first. 

Selected students who wish to do so may carry advanced Air Force- 
R. O. T. C. courses during their junior and senior years which lead to a regular 
or reserve commission in the United States Air Force. 

For further details concerning the requirements in Military Instruction,, 
write the Editor of Publications for the Catalog of General Information. 

Physical Education and Health 

All undergraduate students classified academically as freshmen and sopho- 
mores, irrespective of their physical condition, who are registered for more- 
than six semester hours, are required to complete four prescribed courses in. 



COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 19 

physical education. These courses must be taken by all eligible students dur- 
ing the first two years of attendance at the University, whether they intend 
to graduate or not. Transfer students who do not have credit in these courses 
or their equivalent, must complete them or take them until graduation, which- 
ever occurs first. Students with military service may receive credit for these 
required courses by applying to the Dean of the College of Air Science. 

Guidance in Registration 

At the time of matriculation each student is tentatively assigned to a mem- 
ber of the faculty who acts as the student's personal adviser. The choice of 
subject areas within which the student will prepare to teach will be made under 
faculty guidance during the first year in the Orientation to Education course 
required of all freshmen. Thereafter, the student will advise regularly with 
the faculty member in the College of Education responsible for his teaching 
major. While it may be possible to make satisfactory adjustments as late as 
the junior year for students from other colleges who have not already entered, 
upon the sequence of professional courses, it is highly desirable that the stu- 
dent begin his professional work in the freshman year. Students who intend to 
teach (except Vocational Agriculture) should register in the College of Educa- 
tion, in order that they may have the continuous counsel and guidance of the 
faculty directly responsible for their professional preparation. 

Junior Status 

The first two years of college work are preparatory to the professional 
work of the junior and senior years. To be eligible to enter the junior year 
professional courses, a student must have attained junior status. (See Aca- 
demic regulations.) 

Certification of Teachers 

The State Department of Education certifies to teach in the approved high 
schools of the State only graduates of approved colleges who have satisfactor- 
ily fulfilled subject-matter and professional requirements. The several cur- 
ricula of the College of Education fulfill State Department requirements for 
certification. 

Students intending to qualify as teachers in Baltimore, Washington, or 
any other city or state should, in their junior year, obtain a statement of 
certification requirements from these areas and be guided thereby in the selec- 
tion of courses. Advisers will assist in obtaining and utilizing such informa- 
tion. 

Degrees 

The degrees conferred upon students who have met the conditions pre- 
scribed for a degree in the College of Education are Bachelor of Arts and 
Bachelor of Science. Majors in English, social sciences, language, and art 
receive the B.A. degree. Mathematics majors may receive either degree. All 
others receive the B.S. degree. 



20 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

Costs 

Actual annual costs of attending the University include: $165.00 fixed 
charges; $75.00 special fees; $400.00 board; $140.00 to $170.00 lodging for 
Maryland residents, or $190.00 to $220.00 for residents of other States and 
Countries; and laboratory fees, which vary with the laboratory courses pur- 
sued. A matriculation fee of $10.00 is charged all new students. A charge of 
$250.00 is assessed to all students who are non-residents of the State of 
Maryland. 

For a more detailed statement of these costs, write to the Editor of 
Publications for the Catalog of General Information. 

GRADUATE STUDIES 

Graduate Status 

For graduate study in education a student must have earned at least 16" 
semester credits in education at the undergraduate level, and hold a bachelor's 
or master's degree from a college or university of recognized standing. This 
requirement may be interpreted so that foundation work in fields other than 
education may be accepted in cases of graduate students not preparing for 
school work. The student must also satisfy the Graduate School as to his. 
ability to do graduate work. 

Registration 

A graduate student in education must matriculate in the Graduate School.. 
Application for admission to the Graduate School should be made prior to 
dates of registration on blanks obtained from the office of the Dean of the 
Graduate School. For further instructions a student should consult the Gradu- 
ate School catalog. 

Masters' Degrees 

A graduate student in education may matriculate for a Master of Educa- 
tion or a Master of Arts degree. For requirements of these degrees, the 
student should consult both the Graduate School catalog and the duplicated 
material issued by the College of Education. On matriculation, the student 
should select a faculty adviser. 

Doctors' Degrees 

Programs leading to a Doctor of Philosophy or a Doctor of Education 
degree in Education are administered for the Graduate School by the Depart- 
ment of Education. For requirements of these degrees, the student should 
consult both the Graduate School catalog and the statement of policy relative 
to doctoral programs in education. If the student has not already made 
arrangements with a member of the faculty to advise him, he should consult 
with the chairman of the Education Committee on Doctoral Programs regard- 
ing a proper adviser.

lecting one special teaching field such as industrial education need to take only 
one methods course: for example, Ed. 140 or Ind. Ed. 140. Students who select 
an academic major and a special fields minor, or vice versa, must take methods 
courses in both the major and minor fields, and should divide their student 
teaching between the two fields.

BUSINESS EDUCATION 

Two curricula are offered for the preparation of teachers of business sub- 
jects. The General Business Education Curriculum qualifies for teaching all 
business subjects except shorthand. Providing thorough training in general 
business, including economics, this curriculum leads to teaching positions on 
both junior and senior high school levels. By the proper selection of electives, 
persons following this curriculum may also qualify as teachers of social studies. 

The Secretarial Education Curriculum is adapted to the needs of those 
who wish to become teachers of shorthand as well as other business subjects.

CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 

The childhood education curriculum has as its primary goal the prepara- 
tion of nursery school and kindergarten teachers. It is also planned to further 
the personal development of the student and to provide general education in 
one facet of homemaking. 

Observation and student teaching are done in the University Nursery 
School and Kindergarten on the campus and in approved schools in nearby 
communities. Each student is encouraged to select a minor in an allied field. 

Graduates receive a B.S. degree and meet the requirements for certifica- 
tion for teaching kindergarten and nursery school in Maryland. Each student 
should have one summer of experience in working with children.

ELEMENTARY EDUCATION 

There are two undergraduate curriculums in elementary education. The 
first one is for regular undergraduate students who desire to earn the Bachelor 
of Science degree and to qualify for an elementary school teaching certificate. 
The second curriculum is for teachers in service. 
Elementary Education Curriculum for Regular Undergraduate Students 

This curriculum is designed for regular undergraduate students who wish 
to qualify for teaching positions in elementary school. Students who complete 
the curriculum will receive the Bachelor of Science degree, and they will meet 
the Maryland State Department of Education requirements for the "Bachelor 
of Science Certificate in Elementary Education." The curriculum also meets 
certification requirements in many other states, Baltimore, and District of 
Columbia. 

Some of the academic courses need not be taken in the indicated sequence. For 
example, Botany 1 may be taken during the second semester of the freshman year instead 
of the first semester, or it may be taken during the sophomore or junior year. However, 
the courses in Human Development Education and certain other Education courses must 
be taken during the junior year, (and Ed. 149 — Student Teaching in Elementary Schools 
Bhould be taken during the first semester of the senior year.)

INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION 



Three curriculums are administered by the Industrial Education Depart- 
ment: (1) Industrial Arts Education, (2) Vocational-Industrial Education, 
and (3) Education for Industry. The overall offering includes both undergrad- 
uate and graduate programs leadings to the degrees of: Bachelor of Science, 
Master of Education, Master of Arts, Doctor of Education, and Doctor of 
Philosophy. 

The Industrial Arts Education curriculum prepares people to teach indus- 
trial arts at the secondary school level. It is a four-year program leading to a 
Bachelor of Science degree. While trade or industrial experience contributes 
significantly to the background of the industrial arts teacher, previous work 
experience is not a condition of entrance into this curriculum. Students who 
are enrolled in the curriculum are encouraged to obtain work in industry dur- 
ing the summer months. Industrial arts as a secondary school subject area is 
a part of the general education program characterized by extensive shopwork 
and laboratory expeiiences. 

The Vocational-Industrial Curriculum may lead either to certification as 
a vocational-industrial teacher with no degree involved or to a Bachelor of 
Science degree, including certification. The University of Maryland is desig- 
nated as the institution which shall offer the "Trade and Industrial" certifica- 
tion courses and hence the courses which are offered are those required for 
certification in Maryland. The Vocation-Industrial Curriculum requires trade 
competence as specified by the Maryland State Plan for Vocational Education. 
A person who aspires to take the certification courses should review the State 
plan and he may well contact Maryland State Department of Education offi- 
cials. If the person has in mind teaching in a designated city or county he 
may discuss his plans with the vocational-industrial official of that city or 
county inasmuch as there are variations in employment and training proce- 
dures.
