Courses la, 1B, 4A, and 4B are prescribed in the College of Agriculture. All the others are elective. Attention is called to the fact that the prescribed technical work (Courses 1 to 4 in Chemistry, 1 and 2 in Botany, and la, 1B, 4A, 4B in Agriculture) includes only that which is required of all students in the College of Agriculture; in addition to these there must be elected some special lines of study in Agricultural Chemistry, Practical Agriculture, Horticulture, Irrigation, Viticulture, Botany, Entomology, etc. These studies should be taken in groups corresponding to different professional lines, viz.: Practical Agriculture and Horticulture; Agricultural Engineering and Irrigation; Agricultural Chemistry, Physics, and Geology; Agricultural Biology (Zoology, Entomology, Botany); Agricultural Technology, (sugars, starch, bread, wine, fats, canning, etc) For each of these lines, courses will be laid out by the corresponding instructors.
All courses in this department are given in the Agricultural Building.
Laboratory deposits are fifteen dollars a half-year for each chemical laboratory course.
