1 In residence first half-year only, 1926-27; 2 in residence second halfyear only, 1926-27.

Students must have passed Subject A before taking any course in English.

Letters and Science List.—All undergraduate courses in this department except the courses in Journalistic Studies (50A-50B, 100A-100B) are included in the Letters and Science List of Courses. For regulations governing this list, see page 4.

Preparation for the Major.-Students who wish to make English their major subject must have completed, with an average grade of C, English 1A-1B followed either by English 56A-56в or by English 52A-52B (as given in 1925–26).

Such students are strongly advised to study at least one ancient and one modern foreign language in high school and to continue these studies in the lower division. Those who enter without Latin or Greek are advised to elect courses either in Greek and Latin literature in translation or in general literature. At least one foreign language and philosophy should be elected in the lower division.

The Major.—The program must include English 1175, to be taken in the junior year, and 151, to be taken in the senior year. Not more than 6 units of upper division composition may be counted as part of the 24 required units. By permission, courses in allied departments to the value of 6 units may be included in the major.

The student must maintain an average grade of C in upper division English courses and, at the end of the senior year, must pass a comprehensive final examination.

Honors Students in the Upper Division.-In the restricted junior or the restricted senior course (group II) students who are candidates for honors in English may arrange with the instructor for additional credit, the amount of which (one to three units) will be determined by the instructor after he has outlined with the students the additional work to be done. The assignment, which should be entered on the student's study-card as English 199, will involve no additional class exercises, but occasional conferences with the instructor.

Honors Students in the Senior Year.-Any student who completes not less than nine units of upper division English in the junior year with an average grade of not less than B may apply for admission to one of the honors preceptorial groups, which will be organized for 1926-27. Honors students meet their preceptor bi-weekly for an hour's conference in groups of three or four. They undertake, in a chosen field, a program of reading, intensive and extensive, which is accepted as equivalent to a regular 3-unit course.

Teacher Training.-See the Announcement of the School of Education. Higher Degrees.-See the Announcement of the Graduate Division and the special announcement issued by the department.
