THE COURSE IN FORESTRY LEADING TO THE DEGREE OF BACHELOR OF THE SCIENCE OF FORESTRY.
The courses of the spring term in the junior and senior years will be given in the College Forest at Axton, N. Y. Students must therefore arrange their courses in other branches so as to keep the spring term entirely free for work in the woods.
[Courses in parenthesis are elective in whole or in part.*]
*All electives must be chosen at the beginning of the year with the previous written approval of the Director.
The courses in fundamental and supplementary branches are selected from those offered in the Departments of the University. Some of these courses are fuller than necessary for students in forestry, and may possibly be shortened, leaving more room for Electives. The courses advised are: Mathematics, 7; Physics, 2a; Chemistry, 1, 16, 21b; Zoology: Invertebrate, 1, Vertebrate, 2, Entomology, 3, 7; Botany, 1, 2, 5, 9, 11; Geology, 1, 10, 21, 22, 23, 32; Engineering, 4, 5; Political Economy, 34, 51, 59.
