The twenty-third session of the Summer School of the University of 
Maryland will open Wednesday, June 23rd, 1937, and continue for six weeks 
endmg Tuesday, August 3rd. ' 

In order that there may be thirty class periods for each full course 
classes will be held on Saturday, June 26th, and Saturday, July lOth to 
make up for time lost on registration day and on July 5th, respectively 
Ihere will be no classes or other collegiate activities held on July 5th which 
will be observed as a legal holiday. 

The courses are planned to meet the needs of teachers in service and of 
students desiring to satisfy the requirements for undergraduate and 
graduate degrees. 


• V^^ University is located at College Park in Prince George's County 
eight miles from Washington and thirty-two miles from Baltimore. College 
Park IS a station on the B. & 0. R. R. and on the City and Suburban Electric 
Railway. Local and mter-urban bus lines pass the University. Washington, 
with Its wea th of resources for casual visitation, study, and recreation is 
easily accessible. 


Teachers and special students not seeking degrees are admitted to the 
courses of the Summer Session for which they are qualified. 

The admission requirements for those who desire to become candidates 
for degrees are the same as for any other session of the University. Before 
registering, a candidate for a degree will be required to consult the Dean 
01 the College m which he seeks a degree. 

Graduates of accredited Normal Schools with satisfactory normal school 
records may be admitted to advanced standing in the College of Education. 
The objectives of the individual student determine the exact amount of 
credit allowed. The student is given individual counsel and advice as to 
the best procedure for fulfilling the requirements for a degree. 


The semester hour is the unit of credit, as in other sessions of the Uni- 
versity. 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. 

In exceptional cases, the credit allowance of a course may be increased on 
account of additional individual work. This must be arranged with the 
instructor at time of registration and approved by the Director. 

Students who are matriculated as candidates for degrees will be credited 
towards the appropriate degree for satisfactory completion of courses. 

Teachers and other students not seeking degrees will receive official re- 
ports specifying the amount and quality of work completed. These reports 
will be accepted by the Maryland State Department of Education and by the 
appropriate education authorities in other States for the extension and re- 
newal of certificates in accordance with their laws and regulations. 


The courses for elementary school teachers are planned with special refer- 
ence to the needs of teachers now holding the Maryland First Grade Certifi- 
cate who wish to qualify by Summer School attendance for the Advanced 
First Grade Certificate. Both in subject matter and in treatment these 
courses are in advance of the courses required for the two-year normal 
school curriculum. 


Six semester hours is the standard load for the Summer Session. Special 
permission will be required for a program of more than six semester hours. 
(See also under expenses.) The program of every elementary school teacher 
should include at least one content course. Teachers should be careful not 
to elect courses that they have had in previous attendance at summer 

Regularly registered students who wish to attend a course or a part of 
a course without doing the work connected therewith are permitted to enroll 
as auditors with the consent of the instructor in charge and approval of the 


Wednesday, June 23rd. is Registration Day. Students should register on 
or before this date and be ready for class work on the morning of Thursday, 
June 24th. It is possible to register in advance and reserve rooms by apply- 
ing to the Director of the Summer School. 

Students living in the vicinity may register in person Monday and Tues- 
day preceding the regular registration day. 

Students may not register after Saturday, June 26th, except by special 
permission of the Director and the payment of a fee of $2.00 for late 

All course cards for work in the Summer School must be countersigned 
by the Director or Registration Adviser before they are presented in the 
Registrar's office. 

When registration is completed each student should have a receipt for 
fees paid and class cards — one for each class. 

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

Unless otherwise stated, courses listed will be offered in 1937. In Gen- 
eral, courses for which less than five students apply will not be given. Such 
courses will be held open until the end of the first week, June 26th, at which 
time it will be determined by the Director whether they will be given. 



Special arrangements have been made for persons wishing to do graduate 
work m summer. The Master's degree represents full time work for o.! 
academic year. The minimum credit requirement is 24 semester hou's in 
courses approved for graduate credits, in addition to a thesis The min?

Students attending the Summer School and occupying rooms in the dor- 
mitories 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 are trans- 
ported from the railroad station to dormitories by University trucks at a 
charge of 50 cents each. Trunks sent by express should be prepaid. 

Students who prefer to room off the campus, or who cannot be accommo- 
dated in the dormitory, may find accommodations in boarding houses in 
College Park and in private homes in College Park and the nearby towns of 
Berwyn, Riverdale, and Hyattsville. 

The University, however, assumes no responsibility for rooms and board 
offered to summer session patrons outside of the University dormitories 
and dining room. 


Board is furnished at the College Dining Hall to all students desiring 
this service. Food is chosen and meals are planned with strict regard to 
health, nutrition, and attractiveness. Milk is furnished by the University 
herd. Plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and ice cream are found on all 
menus. Self-service is used in order to permit a wide choice of foods at 
minimum cost. Students so desiring may have meals at a flat rate of $40 
for the six weeks. The dining hall will also be open for a la carte service 
to students not availing themselves of the reduced flat rate. 

A Combination Plan provides Room and Board, at reduced rates as 

Board and Room in Calvert Hall (Men) $45.00 

Board and Room in Margaret Brent Hall (Women) 50.00 

Board and Room in New Dormitory (Women) 50.00 


The special fees ordinarily required in higher institutions, such as reg- 
istration fee, library fee, health service fee, and the like, are covered in the 
"General Fee" which is paid by all students. 

General Fee (for all students) $20.00 

Board and Room _ 45.00- 50.00 

Room without Board _ _.... - 9.00- 12.00 

Board without Room 40.00 

Non-resident fee (for students not residents of 

Maryland or the District of Columbia) - 10.00 

The general fee of $20.00 entitles a student to the normal load of six 
semester hours. For each semester hour in excess of six, an additional fee 
of $4.00 will be charged. 

Audition courses are charged at the same rate as courses taken for credit 
except that no charge is made to students who have paid the general fee for 
six semester hours. Consent of instructor concerned, however, should al- 
ways be obtained. 



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

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

Expenses for Graduate Students—The fees for graduate students are the 
same as for other students, except that the non-resident fee does not apply 
to graduate students. 


In cases of withdrawal for illness or other unavoidable causes, refunds 
will be made as follows: 

For withdrawal within five days full refund of general fee and labora- 
tory fees, with a deduction of $2.00 to cover cost of registration. Refunds 
for board and lodging will be pro-rated. 

After five days, and up to two weeks, refunds on all charges will be pro- 
rated with the deduction of $2.00 for cost of registration. 

After two weeks, refund will be granted for board only, amount to be 

Applications for refunds must be made to the financial office and ap- 
proved by the Director. No refund will be paid until the application form 
has been signed by the Director and countersigned by the dormitory repre- 
sentatives if the applicant rooms in a dormitory. 


The University Infirmary, located on the campus, in charge of the regu- 
lar University physician and nurse, provides free medical service for the 
students in the Summer School. Students who are ill should report 
promptly to the University physician, Dr. Leonard Hayes, either in person 
or by phone (Extension 12— day; Berwyn 328— night). 


The library provides ample accommodations both for Undergraduate and 
graduate students. The main reading room has seats for 236 persons and 
shelves for 5,500 volumes. In the book stacks are 19 small alcoves with desks 
for graduate students. The total number of bound volumes is about 62,000 
and there is a subscription list of about 480 periodicals and newspapers. The 
Library of Congress, the Library of the Office of Education, and other libra- 
ries in Washington are available for references. 

The library is open from 8.00 A. M. to 5.30 P. M., Monday to Friday, inclu- 
sive, and on each of these evenings from 6.00 to 10.00 P. M. On Saturday the 
hours are from 8.00 A. M. to 12.30 P. M. and on Sunday, 2.30 to 10.00 P. M. 


Instruction in piano and voice under private teachers may be had by a 
limited number of students. Details may be secured from Mr. Harlan Ran- 
dall of the Music Department. 




The intermission between the second and third class periods, from 9.50 
to 10.30, is devoted to assembly programs and faculty- student conferences. 

The assembly programs will consist chiefly of talks on matters of current 
interest. They will begin and end promptly — at 9.55 and 10.25, respectively. 
They will be scheduled regularly for Tuesday and Thursday. 

The period on other days will be reserved for conference purposes. Varia- 
tions may be made in order to secure speakers that could not be had for 
Tuesday or Thursday. 


The facilities of the Department of Physical Education are open to all 
Summer School students for recreational purposes. Equipment for basket- 
ball, apparatus work, fencing, boxing, wrestling, bag-punching, tennis, 
badminton, ping pong, horse-shoe pitching, speedball, volleyball, and track 
is available. In addition the department sponsors a series of twilight base- 
ball games between teams picked from the Eastern and Western shores of 
the State. 


All social and recreational matters other than the recreation facilities 
provided by the Department of Physical Education are in charge of a com- 
mittee of students appointedi by the Director at the opening of the Summer 
Session. The faculty adviser for this committee is Dr. H. F. Cotterman. 


A provisionally organized French School, through the medium of the 
French House (See p. 41 of this catalogue), offers to those who wish to 
perfect their spoken French the opportunity of living with native French 
people for six weeks and of taking part in a program of dramatic entertain- 
ments, games, and outings sponsored by the French School.

July 12-16 

This conference is conducted under the auspices of the Maryland Congress 
of Parents and Teachers, with the cooperation of the National Congress 
of Parents and Teachers and the University of Maryland. 

It is for parents and teachers who are concerned about the difficult 
problems facing education in the United States and the function of the 
parent-teacher movement in relation to education. It offers an opportunity 
for the study of the objects, program, activities, and procedures of the 
local Parent-Teacher Association as the vital unit of an adult education 
movement which functions on a state, national, and international basis. 


In cooperation with the Division of Educational Work of the Third Corps 
Area a conference is conducted for the Educational Advisers of this Area. 

The program is under the direction of Dr. Thomas G. Bennett, Corps 
Area Educational Adviser. 


The vicinity of College Park holds a wealth of historic and geologic inter- 
ests. Excursions may be arranged on Saturdays and at other convenient times 
to places of interest in Washington, Mount Vernon, Great Falls, and else- 
where in the neighborhood of the National Capital.
