The tenth session of the Summer School of the University of Maryland 
will open Wednesday, June 25th, 1924 and continue for six weeks, ending 

Tuesday, August 5th. 

In order that there may be thirty class periods for each full course, 
classes will be held on Saturday, June 28th, and on Saturday, July 5th, to 
make up for time lost registration day and the regular holiday July 4th. 
The regular Wednesday schedule will be followed on June 28th and the 
regular Friday schedule on July 5th. There will be no classes or other 
collegiate activities held on July 4th. 

The work of the Summer School was designed originally for rural 
teachers. Many persons, however, it has been found, desire to attend the 
University in summer to pursue courses in other lines of work. For this 
reason additions, both academic and professional in character, have been 
made gradually until the present program of studies includes courses for 
the teachers of the several classes of school work — elementary, secondary, 
and vocational: for special students, as farmers, breeders, dairymen, home 
makers, chemists, pubhc speakers, graduate students; and persons who 
are candidates for degrees in agriculture, arts and science, education, engi- 
neering and home economics. 

The instruction in the Summer School is free to all students of 


The University is located at College Park, in Prince George's County, 
Maryland, on the Washington Division of the B. & O. R. R., eight miles 
from Washington and thirty-two miles from Baltimore; and on the City 
and Suburban Electric Railway, eight miles from Washington, and twelve 

miles from Laurel. 

The grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington Boulevard. The 
site of the University is healthful and attractive. The buildings occupy the 
crest of a commanding hill, covered with forest trees. It overlooks a broad 
valley and several suburban towns. In front, extending to the Boulevard, 
is a broad, rolling campus, the drill ground and athletic field of the stu- 
dents. East of the Boulevard is the new athletic field. A quarter of a mile 
to the northeast are the buildings of the Experiment Station. 


Teachers and special students not seeking a degree are admitted with- 
out examination to the courses of the summer session for which they are 
qualified. All such selection of courses, however, must be approved by 
the Director of the Summer School. 

The admission requirements for those who desire to become candidates 


for degrees are the same as for any other session of the University. Be- 
fore registering, a candidate for a degree will be required to consult 
the Dean of the School in which the candidate wishes to secure the degree. 
Regularly registered students who wish to attend the lectures or a 
portion of the lectures of courses without doing the work connected there- 
with are permitted to enroll in such courses as auditors with the consent 
of the instructor in eharge. 


Wednesday, June 2Sth, is Registration Day. Students should register on 
or before this date and be ready for class work on the morning of Thursday, 
June 26th. It is possible to register in advance and reserve rooms by applying 
to the Director of the Summer School. Students desiring to register by mail 
will use the enclosed registration card. When filled out this should be returned 
to the registrar's office accompanied by remittance of an advance fee of $5.00. 

Most students find two full courses sufficient work for the Summer period. 
Students are urged to make application lor no more than six credit hours. In 
no case will a student be granted credit for more than seven term credit hours 
work in the Summer School. 

Unless otherwise stated, courses listed will be offered in 1924. Instructors 
will not be held for courses for which less than five students apply. For this 
reason applicants desiring content courses numbered from 101 to 199 and 101 
S to 199 S should register at an early date by mail. 

All course cards for work in the Summer School must be counter- 
signed by the Director before being presented to the Registrar's office. 


Courses numbered from 1 to 99 with an S before the number, as for 
example, Ed. S. 11, are special Summer School courses and are not offered 
during the regular collegiate year. 

Courses numbered from 101 to 199 with an S following the number, as 
Eng. 101 S, are modifications, to meet Summer School conditions, of 
courses of the same number in the University catalogue. 

Courses numbered from 101 to 199 without the S, as Agron. 191, are 
identical in every way with courses of the same symbol and number in 
the University catalogue. 

Courses numbered from 201 and above are for graduate students only. 
Some of the courses numbered from 101 to 199 may be used for graduate 
credit by special arrangement. 

The symbols — Eg., Eng., Ed., Agron.— refer to the subject matter 
grouping under which such courses are found in the general catalogue. 


The semester hour is the unit of credit as in other sessions of the 
University. A semester credit hour is one lecture or recitation a week for 
a term, which is approximately seventeen weeks in length. Two or three 
hours of laboratory or field work are counted as equivalent to one lecture 


or recitation. During the summer session a lecture course meeting five 
Les a week for six weeks requiring the standard amount of outside work, 
Tgiven a weight of two semester hours. All credit is listed as semester 

^""""'Educational courses satisfactorily completed will be credited by the 
State Superintendent of Schools toward meeting the minimum require- 
ments of professional preparation as follows: 

(1) For teaching in the elementary schools of the State, viz., at least 
six weeks' attendance at a school of pedagogy; a renewal ot elementary 
teachers' certificates which requires six weeks' additional protessional 
training for those of second and third grade; to meet the requirement 
for advancing the grade of elementary teachers' certificates. ^ _ . , 

(2) For teaching in high schools of the State and for renewal of high 

school certificates. . 

(3) For teachers of vocational agriculture and home economics and 

the renewal of vocational teachers' certificates. 

(4) For high school principalships. 

(5) For supervisorships. 


Special arrangements have been made for persons wishing to do grad- 
ate work in summer. By writing for the general University catalogue 
all of the regulations governing graduate work may be procured. The 
Master's degree represents full time work for one academic year. At 
least thirty semester hours, including a thesis, must be completed. Four 
Summer Sessions are considered the eciuivalent of an academic year. By 
carrying approximately seven semester hours of graduate work for four 
sessions and submitting a satisfactory thesis students may be granted 
the degree of Master of Arts or Master of Science. Teachers and other 
graduate students working for a degree on the summer plan must meet 
the same requirements and proceed in the same way as do students enrolled 
in the other sessions of the University. 


Students are accommodated in the University up to the capacity of 

the dormitories. . . -n i ^i i 

Students who room in these dormitories will supply themselves 

with towels, pillows, pillow cases, sheets and blankets. No addition charge 
is made for rooms, but to secure them, early apphcation should be made 
to the Director. Rooms may be reserved in advance, but will not be held 
later than noon of Thursday, June 26th. 

Students who desire to live in private homes may be accommodated 
in College Park or in the nearby towns of HyattsviUe, Riverdale and 
Berwyn. Most students, however, in the past have found it more con- 
venient to room in the dormitories. ^. . , „ 

Board is furnished for all desiring it at the college dining halL 



The expenses of the summer session, with the exceptions noted below, 
are covered by a single fee of $55.00. This includes registration, board, 
use of library and gymnasium, Janitor service, health service and general 
use of the University property. 

The fee for students not boarding at the College Dining Hall is $15.00. 
Day students who stay for lunch only, will be served at the rate of thirty- 
five cents per meal. 

A special fee which is specified in the description of certain courses 
IS charged for the use of laboratory and other materials. 

Students may have their laundry work done at the University laundry 
at a flat rate of $4.00 for the session. 

One-half of the fees, including laundry and laboratory fees, must be 
paid upon registration, and the remainder at the beginning of the third 
week of the term. 

No rebates will be allowed except in cases of withdrawal on account 
of illness or other unavoidable causes. Applications for rebates must be 
made to the financial office and approved by the Director. 

Persons desiring to do graduate work will be charged $1.50 per 
credit hour and $10.00 for matriculation in the graduate school. After a 
student once matriculates in the graduate school, no further matriculation 
fees for summer graduate work are charged. The total fee for procuring 
a Master's degree on the summer plan, including matriculation fee, cost 
per credit hour and diploma fee need not exceed $65.00. 


The library is housed in a separate two-story building and contains 
10,000 bound books and 5,000 United States Government documents, un- 
bound reports and pamphlets. On the first floor is collected material 
relating to agriculture and related scientific subjects. The general reading 
room is on the second floor. All material is on open shelves where the 
students can easily locate it. Through the Inter-Library Loan System 
of the Library of Congress and other government-owned libraries the 
University of Maryland library is able to supplement its reference material 
by either borrowing books from these government libraries or by personal 
work in them. 

The library is open from 8 a. m. to 5.30 p. m., Monday to Friday 
inclusive, and on each of these evenings from 6.00 p. m. to 10.00 p. m. 
On Saturday from 8 a. m. to 12.30 p. m. 


Demonstration schools, both elementary and high are carried on in 
connection with the Summer School. Full information will be found 
under Description of Courses, p. 22 (high), and p. 25 (elementary).
