Three full courses, or six semester hours, is the standard load for 
the Summer Session. Students are strongly advised to make application 
for no more than the standard load. In no case will a student be granted 
credit for more than seven semester hours of work in the summer Ses- 
sion. Every elementary school teacher should include at least one con- 
tent course in her program. 

Unless otherwise stated, courses listed will be offered in 1927. In- 
structors will not be held for courses for which less than five students 
apply. Such courses will be held open until the end of the first week, June 

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

A student desiring to withdraw from a course for which he has regis- 
tered will apply to the Director for a withdrawal permit. 


Courses with an S before the number, e. g., Ed. S. 11, are special Sum- 
mer School courses and are not offered during the regular collegiate year. 

Courses with an S following the number, as Psych. 103 S, are modi- 
fications, to meet Summer School conditions, of courses of the same 
number in the University catalogue. 

Courses without the S, as Zool. 1, are identical with courses of the 
same symbol and number in the University catalogue. 

Courses numbered from 200 and above are for graduate students 
only. Some of the courses numbered below 200 may be used for graduate 
credit by special arrangement with the instructor. 

The symbols — Eng., Ed., Agron., etc. — 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 semester, 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 times a week for six weeks requiring the standard amount 
of outside work, is given a weight of two semester hours. 

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; for renewal of elemen- 
tary teachers' certificates, which requires six weeks' additional profes- 
sional training for those of second and third grades; for meeting the 
requirements for advancing the grade of elementary teachers' certifi- 
cates. (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 
graduate work in summer. By writing for the general University cata- 
logue all of the regulations governing graduate work may be secured. 
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 equivalent of an academic year. By 
carrying approximately six 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 en- 
rolled in the other sessions of the University. Those seeking the Master's 
degree as qualification for the State High School Principars Certificate 
should include in their twenty-four semester hours approximately eight 
hours of "advanced study related to high school branches." 


Rooms — Students are accommodated in the University dormitories up 
to the capacity of the dormitories. Silvester Hall is reserved for men; 
Calvert Hall, the "Y Hut" and Practice House for women. Rooms may 
be reserved in advance, but will not be held later than noon of Thursday, 
June 23rd. As the number of rooms is limited, early application to the 
Director for reservations is advisable. 

Students attending the Summer School and occupying rooms in the 
dormitories will provide themselves with towels, pillows, pillow cases, 
sheets and blankets. 

Trunks should be marked plainly with name and address (dormitory 
and room number) if rooms have been assigned in advance. Trunks 
sent by express should be prepaid. 

Students who prefer to room ofl^ the campus may find accommoda- 
tions in approved boarding houses in College Park and in private homes 
in College Park and the nearby towns of Berwyn, Riverdale and Hyatts- 
ville. In the past most students have found it more convenient to room 
in the University dormitories. 

Board. — Board is furnished to all students desiring it at the college 
dining hall. Meals will be served on the table service plan. Students, 
when they register and pay their fees, will receive Dining Hall Admis- 
sion Cards. These cards must be preserved and presented for admission 
at the door of the dining hall. 


The expenses of the summer session, with the exceptions noted be- 
low, 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 desiring lunch will be served at the rate of 35 cents. 

Students may have a specified amount of laundry done at the Univer-

A sequence of courses in music has been planned to extend through 
four summer sessions. The student who has completed this sequence 
and has had the amount of work in academic subjects and in the theory 
of education specified in the state law governing the issuance of Certifi- 
cates in Special Subjects will have fulfilled the requirements for the 
Special High School Certificate in Music. The courses offered this year 
will be found under "High School Music" and "Music.'' Students desiring 
to follow the curriculum will be placed, at the time of registration, upon 
the basis of attainments in music, academic subjects and education sub- 


Instruction in piano and voice under private teachers may be had by 
a limited number of students. Details may be secured from Mr. B. L. 
Goodyear of the Music Department. 


A weekly assembly is held Wednesday at 11.10 A. M. All students are 
requested to attend regularly. This is the time when special announce- 
ments are made. It is the only time when it is possible to reach all 
students. The programs consist of addresses and music recitals. 


On Friday evenings during the session informal gatherings of stu- 
dents are held on the campus. The programs are varied. The hours 
from 8.30 to 11.00 are given over to various kinds of entertainments 
directed by student committees. The President's reception occupies the 
first Friday evening. A dramatic entertainment is generally given on the 
last Friday evening of the session. A motion picture is presented each 
Wednesday evening after the first week. Community sings are held regu- 
larly once or twice a week from 6 to 7. Students are also given opportun- 
ity to engage in an evening play hour under the supervision of the De- 
partment of Physical Education. 


The vicinity of College Park holds a wealth of historic and geologic 
interests. Excursions will be arranged on Saturdays and at other con- 
venient times to places of interest in Washington, Mount Vernon, Great 
Falls and other places of interest in the neighborhood of the National 


Dr. L. D. Blanch, who has been a member of the Summer School faculty 
for the past five years, is unable to join the staff this year, but will be 
present from July 25 to the end of the session. He will give lectures on 
thesis writing and will hold group and individual conferences. 


- A ieries of four special lectures will be given by speakers of national 
reputation. Details will be announced in the weekly calendar.
