93. Abnormal Psychology. An introduction to the study of 
abnormal behavior, including such topics as hysteria, multiple per- 
sonality, hypnotism, analysis of nervous and mental maladjust- 
ments, and a study of psychological processes as they occur in the 
more marked forms of derangement. Prerequisite: General Psy- 
chology. One semester. Three semester hours credit. 

RUSSIAN 

06. Elementary Russian. This course is intended to give stu- 
dents a reading knowledge of Russian, to enable them to under- 
stand the spoken language, and express simple ideas idiomatically. 
College credit will be given for the course, but it cannot be counted 
toward a major. Six semester hours credit. 

SPANISH 

16. First Year College Spanish. This is a continuation and ex- 
tension of course 06 and includes further drill in the principles of 
grammar, practice in conversation, composition, and dictation, and 
more extensive reading. For entrance to Spanish 16, the preparatory 
course 06 or its equivalent (two years of high school Spanish) will 
be required. Six semester hours credit.
