The course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy.
* Beginning with the class graduating in 1893, the completion of work in Natural Science amounting to six hours per week for one year is a requisite for graduation from the College of Letters, these six hours to be chosen from the following list of subjects: Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Geology, Entomology. But in addition to this requirement, Elementary Chemistry, three hours a week for one term, will continue to be prescribed to students in the course in Letters and Political Science who do not pass the entrance examination for advanced standing in Chemistry. The essays presented in Courses requiring Seminary work in any department may be substituted for these Themes.
COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE.
The Faculty of each College consists of the President of the University and the resident Professors, Associate Professors, and Assistant Professors giving instruction in the College.
Professor KELLOGG, PRESIDENT pro tempore; Professor STRINGHAM, DEAN; Professors HILGARD, MOSES, PUTZKER, RANDOLPH, RISING, SLATE, SOULÉ; Associate Professors BRADLEY, EDWARDS, GREENE, PAGET, WICKSON; Assistant Professors HASKELL, KOWER, LANGE, LAWSON, LOUGHRIDGE, O'NEILL, SENGER.
THE UNDERGRADUATE COURSE.
The requirements for admission are given on page 32.
A summary of the subjects embraced in the full course leading to a degree is given below. The course of instruction during the Freshman and Sophomore years is in most respects the same as for the other Colleges of Science, except that the course in mathematics is materially less, while the full course in botany is obligatory, and the work in the chemical laboratory is more especially directed to subjects allied to agriculture. During the Junior and Senior years, the studies relating directly to the theory and practice of agriculture are given chief prominence.
Preparation. It is extremely desirable that students intending to pursue the course in agriculture, in whole or in part, should enter with some previous knowledge of some branches of natural science, especially of botany, entomology or zoology, physics or chemistry; not so much for the actual knowledge of facts they may bring as for the habit of accurate observation. Hence, demonstrative instruction by competent teachers, with the aid of short treatises like the Science Primers, or, in the case of botany, Gray's How Plants Grow, is recommended in preference to the use of more advanced works, and especially as against memorizing from books like those of the Fourteen Weeks series. Previous experience in farm life and work will also aid materially the understanding and fixing of principles, and their application to practice.
The experimental grounds of the University afford abundant means and opportunity for the practical demonstration of such application, which is amplified by excursions to farms and other working establishments. But the time usually alloted to professional education is so short in comparison with the wide range of subjects to be compassed by a well educated man, that time for other than illustrative performance of actual labor is rarely found. Hence, such labor does not form part of the required course. Experience shows that
the mere handicraft is very quickly acquired by any one familiar with the objects to be accomplished and with the underlying principles.
Experiment Stations, Bulletins and Annual Reports. The peculiar conditions under which agriculture exists in California, differing widely in many respects from those determining Eastern and European experience, render wide comparative knowledge in her farmers especially important. In order that the facts and conditions with which they have to deal may be more fully understood, and instruction shaped in accordance therewith, the College of Agriculture has, during the past thirteen years, with the aid of the State appropriations for the purpose, assumed the functions of an agricultural experiment station, where questions relating to agriculture, general as well as local, are investigated and determined; including, also, the collection of data for a full knowledge and description of the agricultural features of the State. The results of this work have been published in the form of annual reports, and summarized in bulletins for current publication in the newspapers. They are, of course, immediately utilized in class instruction.
The enactment of the "Hatch Experiment-Station Bill," providing an annual endowment of fifteen thousand dollars for such work in each State, now permits a material expansion of operations; and besides the establishment of outlying culture stations, it has rendered feasible a more comprehensive and complete plan of experimentation in the central station at Berkeley. Here, also, the results of the work at the outlying stations will be elaborated and discussed. Advanced students in the laboratories will be allowed to take part in this work so far as their qualifications will justify.
Special Lecture Courses. Short courses of lectures on special subjects, such as dairying, viticulture, cotton culture, sugar production, etc., have been and will hereafter be given as the demand arises, or the services of experts in such subjects can be secured.
Following is an outline of the course. For details regarding the studies pursued, consult the statements made under the several courses of instruction, beginning on page 38.
