The Group Elective. Complete Group Electives in Philosophy can be made up in four different directions, viz.: I, in Philosophy proper, including its history and the direct discussion of its chief problems, but more especially its metaphysical and ethical problems; II, in Psychology; III, in Logic and the Theory of Knowledge; IV, in the Department at large. Under IV, there can be several combinations, according to the student's preference; for exact information as to these, the head of the department must be consulted.

In combining Philosophy with other subjects to form a Group Elective, not fewer than 12 units in Philosophy are permissible. Courses 1, 2, and 20 cannot form part of any Group Elective. All

courses but 15 and 20 may be taken as Free Electives, subject to the prerequisite for each.
