To graduates of the University of California, or of other institutions of equal grade, who may wish to pursue advanced work, general or special, every facility is extended that the libraries, laboratories, and collections of the University afford. So far as possible, courses of study will be framed to meet the requirements of such students. These Courses, with the approval of the proper authority, may be so chosen by the student as to lead to a Master's degree, to a Doctor's degree, or to a professional degree in some department of engineering.


Eight Regular Courses of study are at present established, leading directly, under conditions hereinafter stated, to corresponding degrees, namely:

In charge of the Faculty of the College of Letters,

I. The Classical Course, leading to the degree of A.B.;

II. The Literary Course, leading to the degree of B.L.;

III. The Course in Letters and Political Science, leading to the degree of Ph.B.

In charge, severally, of the respective Faculties of the five Colleges of Science,

IV. The Course in Agriculture;

V. The Course in Mechanics;

VI. The Course in Mining;

VII. The Course in Civil Engineering;

VIII. The Course in Chemistry;

each of which leads regularly to the degree of B.S.

To each of these Regular Courses there pertains an established curriculum of studies, prescribed and elective, arranged in the order of four successive years, as exhibited on subsequent pages of this REGISTER.

There are permitted, in addition, Courses at Large and Partial Courses, not leading directly to any degree, but through each of which some one of the above-named degrees is possibly attainable.


In respect to status, students are classed as Graduate and Undergraduate; and Undergraduates as Regular Students, Students at Large, and Partial Course Students, the latter being further classified as Special Students and Limited Students.

Graduate Students are such graduates of the University, or other institution empowered to confer like degrees on an equivalent basis, as are in residence and pursuing advanced or special studies under the direction of a Faculty.

Regular Students are such Undergraduates as are candidates for a degree in some one of the Regular Courses. They are ranked in Four Classes, of a year's work each, namely, the Fourth or Freshman, the Third or Sophomore, the Second or Junior, and the First or Senior.

Students at Large. Any successful candidate for admission to one of the Regular Courses, is allowed to enroll himself as a Student at Large, and, with the advice and consent of the proper Faculty, to elect such a schedule of studies as will make up the full number of exercises a week required of Regular Students of the College in which he is enrolled. In other respects, Students at Large are subject to all the regulations governing Regular Students.

Special Students. Students who are mature-usually such only as have attained their majority-and who wish to pursue some one study and its related branches, may be permitted to do so, by making application through the Recorder of the Faculties.

Limited Students. Students who because of ill health or other disability are unable to pursue the full number of studies required of Regular Students, or who cannot reside at the University long enough to complete a Regular Course, are granted the privilege of taking a Limited Course. But this privilege is withdrawn from students who fail to maintain a good record in scholarship.

Students at Large, Special Students and Limited Students are not by virtue of their status candidates for any degree; but, upon completing a total of studies equivalent, in the judgment of the proper Faculty, to those of a Regular Course, they may by vote of that Faculty be recommended for the degree of the Course.



Applicants for admission to Undergraduate Courses must be at least sixteen years of age, must deposit with the Recorder a certificate of good moral character, and must pass a satisfactory examination in such of the following Subjects as are designated, on page 32 below, for the Course and Status sought:

1. ENGLISH. A short composition, correct in spelling, punctuation, paragraphing, and grammar, upon a subject announced at the time of the examination, and taken from the following works: Tom Brown's School Days at Rugby or Plutarch's Lives (Ginn's Selection); Scott's Lady of the Lake; Irving's Alhambra; Thackeray's Newcomes; Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice and Julius Cæsar (Rolfe's or the Clarendon Press edition).

Applicants will also be required to analyze sentences from these works, and to pass an examination on some such work on rhetoric as A. S. Hill's Principles of Rhetoric, or Kellogg's Text-book (Lessons 1-71, inclusive).

2. ARITHMETIC. Including the metric system. The technical parts of Commercial Arithmetic, viz.: banking, profit and loss, commission, taxes, duties, stocks, insurance, exchange and average of payments, are not insisted on.

3. ALGEBRA. (a) To Quadratic Equations, including the various methods of factoring, the theory of exponents, integral and fractional, positive and negative, the calculus of radicals, ratio and proportion.

(b) Quadratic Equations, both single and simultaneous, their solution and their theory, including all the recognized methods of solution and all equations reducible to the quadratic form; formation of equations from given roots.

4. PLANE GEOMETRY. (a) All of plane geometry, except the metrical properties of regular polygons and the measurement of the circle.

(b) The general properties of regular polygons, their construction, perimeters and areas; and the measurement of the circle, including the different methods for determining the ratio of the circumference to the diameter.

5. HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY. History of the United States and the general facts of physical and political geography. Barnes' Brief History of the United States, and the geographies used in the first-grade grammar schools, will serve to indicate the amount of knowledge expected.

In 1892, and afterwards, instead of the present requirement of History and Geography, Subject 5 will be GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Under this subject, a thorough knowledge of the principles of government, whether Federal, State, or local, will be required.


6. LATIN. Cæsar, Gallic War, Books 1.-IV. (or Civil War, Books 1.-11.); Cicero, the four Catilinarian Orations; with questions, in both cases, on the implied grammar, the subject-matter and the corresponding archæology; translation into Latin of simple English sentences.

7. LATIN. Cicero, the Orations Pro Archia Poeta and Pro Lege Manilia; Vergil, Eneid, Books 1.-VI.; with questions, in both cases, on the implied grammar, the subject-matter and the corresponding archæology, and, in the case of Vergil, on the prosody; sight translation of easy Latin prose; translation into Latin of brief connected narratives.

8. GREEK. Xenophon, Anabasis, Book I., with questions on the subject-matter, archæology and grammar (with especial reference to etymology); White's First Lessons in Greek, lessons I.-LX.; translation into Greek of simple English



Xenophon, Anabasis, Books II.-IV., or Goodwin's Greek Reader, pp. 37-111; Homer, Iliad, Books 1.-11., omitting the catalogue of ships; with questions on the grammar (with especial reference to etymology), subject-matter, archæology and prosody; Jones' Greek Prose Composition, or its equivalent; sight translation of easy Greek prose.

10. ANCIENT HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY. (a) Greek history to the death of Alexander, with the connected geography.

(b) Roman history to the death of Commodus, with the connected geography. Smith's History of Greece, and Liddell's History of Rome, will serve to indicate the amount required.

11. PHYSICS. The elements of the subject, taught experimentally, as shown in some such work as Gage's Elements of Physics; Peck's Ganot (or a real equivalent) will include the topics required.


(a) Chemistry. The elements of Chemistry (Eliot and Storer's Chemistry, Avery's Elementary Chemistry, or a thorough acquaintance with Meads' Chemical Primer). An examination in more advanced chemistry will be given to any who wish it, and candidates who pass it will be excused from taking Course I. in Elementary Chemistry (see page 55).

(b) Botany. The elements of botany. An accurate knowledge of Part I. of Gray's How Plants Grow, and an acquaintance with the more prominent native or cultivated plants, their structure and botanical affinities.

(c) Physiology. The elements of physiology (Hutchison's or an equivalent). (d) Mineralogy. The elements of mineralogy. A good knowledge of the physical properties of minerals in general. Ability to determine, by their physical properties alone, twenty-five of the commonest minerals, and to give the reasons for the determination. First seventy-two pages of Nicol's Manual of Mineralogy, or first seventy-five pages of Dana's, third edition.

(e) Plane Trigonometry. The development of the general formulæ of plane trigonometry, solution of plane triangles, and practice in the use of logarithmic tables. Four-place logarithmic tables are furnished for use in the examination.
