The prevailing summer wind is from the southwest off the Pacific Ocean. It is cool and damp, seldom attaining a velocity of over fifteen miles an hour. During the winter months easterly winds are common, although a considerable portion of the winds are westerly throughout the year. In winter there is occasionally a strong, cool northwest wind, or a strong north or northeast wind which is dry and warm.

PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES Work in the undergraduate colleges at Berkeley may, under certain restrictions, be credited in the schools of Architecture, Education, Jurisprudence, and Medicine, the Hastings College of Law, and the curricula in Public Health. Students pursuing these curricula are also classified in the College of Letters and Science and are subject to all the requirements of this college until they begin the strictly technical work. The first year of professional work in the schools of Education, Jurisprudence and Medicine, or the first two years of professional work in the School of Architecture, or of one of the three curricula in Public Health may be credited toward the bachelor's degree in the college of Letters and Science.

The professional work of the schools of Arehitecture, Education, and Jurisprudence, of the curricula in Public Health, and the first year and a half of the Medical School is given at Berkeley. The work of the last three years of the Medical School is given in San Francisco. The work of the California College of Pharmacy, of the Hastings College of Law, and of the College of Dentistry is given in San Francisco.

There are permitted, in addition, courses at large and partial courses, not leading directly to any degree, but through each of which, by compliance with the conditions upon which it is conferred, a degree is possibly obtainable. The University has no preparatory department.

GRADUATE COURSES In all the colleges named above there are provided graduate courses leading to advanced degrees.

STATUS OF STUDENTS In respect to status, students are classified as graduate and undergraduate, and undergraduates as regular students, students at large, and partial course students, the last being further classified as special students and limited students.

Graduate students are such graduates of the University of California or of other universities, colleges, or like institutions, who may be author. ized to pursue advanced or special studies under the direction of a faculty. Such students may or may not be candidates for degrees.

Regular students are those undergraduates who have complied with the requirements for matriculation, and who pursue, or are entitled to pursue, the established curriculum of a college.

Students at large are undergraduates devoting to their studies the full time required of regular students, but pursuing purely elective courses. Students at large are subject to all regulations imposed on regular students, except the requirements for a degree, unless otherwise provided.

Special students.-See p. 26.

Limited students are partial course students to whom, for adequate reasons, less work is permitted, or assigned, than is required of regular students.

Students at large, special students, and limited students, by virtue of their status, are not candidates for any degree.

ADMISSION Applicants for admission to regular undergraduate courses at Berkeley must be at least sixteen years of age, must give satisfactory references concerning moral character, and must, by examination or by certificates from accredited schools or by other certificates which shall be satisfae. tory to the faculties, give evidence of proficiency in such of the subjects as are designated below as required for the college and status sought. Applicants must also appear before the l'niversity medical examiners and pass a satisfactory physical examination, to the end that the health of the university community may be safe-guarded.

A detailed statement of the methods of admission and a list of accredited schools will be found in later pages of this circular.

The normal time for admission to the University is August (in 1918, September), but students are also admitted in January. However, the work of many of the curricula is so arranged that a student cannot enter the University in January and complete his college course in four years. A student who intends to enter the University in January should communicate before December 1 with the Recorder of the Faculties, stating the curriculum he intends to pursue and his preparation in detail, in order that he may be advised if entrance in January is practicable.


LIST OF PREPARATORY SUBJECTS Units of Credit.—The amount of work represented both by preparatory or high school subjects and by the University courses is specified quantitatively. In the University a unit signifies one hour per week of recitation or lecture, with preparation therefor, during one half-year. A course of study taken in the preparatory school for one year at five periods per week is valued at 3 units. Laboratory hours not requiring preparation are estimated at a lower rate than recitations and lectures. Units

3-9 * SUBJECT A, English expression, SUBJECT B, ability to read a foreign language, ancient or modern (French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Spanish). While these

ects are not matriculation requirements, they are mentioned here because of the fundamental importance of a proper high school training in meeting these requirements. A is a requirement for junior standing in all the colleges at Berkeley and B a require. ment for the junior certificate in the College of Letters and Science and in the College of Commerce; it is required for the bachelor's degree in the College of Agriculture. Credit is given upon examination only, not upon certificate nor upon the formal completion of any course of study. These examinations are regularly held every halfyear, Subject B immediately preceding the final examinations in January and May and Subject A during the first week of instruction in October and February. Beginning August, 1919, Subject will be prescribed as an entrance examination for the colleges at Berkeley.

† The dagger indicates subjects for which equivalent courses are offered in the University. For further description of these courses reference should be made to the annual Announcement of Courses.

Subjects 6ahl, 15a-, 1567, and 15c1 represent the minimum credit in Latin, French, German, and Spanish respectively—one year of high school work, Such credit is ordinarily given only upon recommendation, not upon examination.

FOR ADMISSION TO ANY ACADEMIC COLLEGE An applicant may enter any of the academic colleges of the University as a regular student, without deficiency, if he is able to meet the following requirements:

6 units

ENGLISH, two years

(Subject 1)*.


MATHEMATICS, four years

(Subjects 3, 4a', 4a' or 12a", 4b, 12a?).


12 Latin (subjects hab' and 6ab) † ; and German (1562) or French

(15a”) or Spanish (15c”) or Greek (8) or advanced Latin

(7). (See also Subjects A and B under List of Preparatory Subjects.)

[blocks in formation]

HOWEVER, No COLLEGE REQUIRES ALL THE SUBJECTS LISTED ABOVE; but each permits certain modifications in the requirements, which enable students to gain time for elective subjects in the high school if they choose to do so. A student who desires to modify his high school course from the standard given above should carefully study the requirements listed below for all curricula which he might eventually choose at the University.

* The numbers in parentheses refer to the matriculation subjects listed on a preceding page: for example, 2 is plane geometry.

† The University does not offer courses equivalent to subject 6 (elementary Latin). This subject must be taken in the high school, if at all. Elementary physics and elementary chemistry are offered in the summer session of the University, but not in the fall or spring sessions.
