The course concludes with a problem or investigation in some engineering subject, and leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science.


The graduate students are extended the abundant facilities for advanced or special work which the libraries, laboratories, and collections of the University afford.

The degree of CIVIL ENGINEER is conferred under the following conditions: The candidate must be a graduate of the College of Civil Engineering of this University, or he must give evidence satisfactory to its Faculty of having successfully pursued a course of study equivalent to its regular undergraduate


He must pass a satisfactory examination in the following subjects: Railway construction, principles of equipment and administration, railway tunnels, foundations in dry and wet soils or under water, principles of construction of walls, arches, domes, etc., standard authors upon river and harbor engineering, practical astronomy, drawing and designing of engineering structures, history (elective alternatively with English), political economy (elective alternatively with English).

He must have practiced his profession for not less than one year, and he must present an acceptable original memoir on some professional subject. This degree will not be given earlier than three years after graduation.

For Students in the College of Civil Engineering, see Catalogue of Students, and Summary of Students.



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.



The course of instruction in the College of Chemistry is designed for those who wish to become professional chemists, either as teachers and investigators, or as analytical chemists or manufacturers in chemical industries; and also for those who wish a thorough grounding in the science of chemistry, both theoretical and practical, as a preparation for the future study and practice of medicine, pharmacy, metallurgy, etc. While chemistry is the prominent study of the College, the course offers at the same time an opportunity to pursue a somewhat extended range of studies in all the sciences, and such a selection of elective studies may be made as to meet the special needs of several classes of students.


The requirements for admission are stated on page 35. The following courses may be mentioned as included in this College, each of which will usually require four years for its completion. It is suggested that students consult the professor in charge before making their selection:

1. General Science Courses. These courses may be made to include any of the sciences taught in the University. In addition to physics, chemistry, mineralogy, botany, zoology, and geology, which are required in the courses, the students should select agricultural and physiological chemistry, astronomy, and systematic botany. Or, in the place of some of the sciences, literary subjects may be substituted, making up a course in science and letters.

2. Chemico-Metallurgical Course. This course is suggested for those who wish a broader and more extended knowledge of chemistry than is offered in the regular undergraduate course in the College of Mining. In addition to the

required studies, the student should select industrial drawing and descriptive geometry, surveying, metallurgy, and assaying. Students in this course will not only have opportunity to become familiar with the ordinary methods of analysis, but will also have practice in the solution of some of the important chemical problems which arise in metallurgical operations.

3. Chemico-Technological Courses. These courses are intended to prepare students for successful careers in the various departments of applied chemistry, such as sugar refining, the manufacture of chemicals, powder, etc. In addition to the general chemical training, students may receive special training, and carry on special investigations in the desired branch. Those interested in manufacturing establishments will find it to their advantage to visit the University and make themselves familiar with the course of training given to chemical students.

4. Course Preparatory to the Study of Medicine. In addition to the required studies of the course, the students should select those additional sciences which bear directly or indirectly upon the practice of medicine, such as systematic botany, physiological chemistry, urine analysis, and toxicology.

Throughout the course visits are made by the professor and students to the various chemical and metallurgical establishments in the vicinity of the bay of San Francisco.

Details concerning separate chemical subjects and methods of instruction will be found in the description of the Courses in Chemistry, on pages 62, 63. For details concerning laboratory facilities, see pages 82–87.

Conditions of Graduation.

Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science, which is given to graduates of this College, must complete in a satisfactory manner the following subjects:

Mathematics (two terms), 1, 2, 3 or 4, 5 or 6.

German (four terms), 1, 2.

French (two terms), 1.

English (two terms), 2, 3; Themes: eight the first year, six the second.

Zoology (two terms), 1.

Geology (two terms), 1.

Botany (one term), 1.

Physics (three or four terms), 1b, 5a, 5b.

Elementary Chemistry (one term), 1.

Inorganic Chemistry (two terms), 2.

Chemical Philosophy (two terms),

Organic Chemistry (two terms), 4.

*The Thesis is expected to be prepared with great care, and should embody the results of much work carried on in the laboratory under the direction of the Professor of Chemistry. Much weight is given to it in determining the claims of a candidate for graduation.

In addition to the above minimum required studies, students take Political Economy, 9 (one term), or Mineralogy, 1 (two terms), or Zoology, 2 (two terms): and select six subjects from the following list, each to be pursued at least one


History and Political Science, any elective.

English, any elective.

Physiological Chemistry (one term), 7.

*Metallurgy (two terms), 2.

Assaying (one term), 3.

*Petrography (two terms), 2.

Astronomy (one term), 1.

Mathematics, any elective.

*Instrumental Drawing and Descriptive Geometry (two terms), 2.

Surveying (one term), 1.

The degrees of MASTER OF SCIENCE and DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY are granted under the general conditions stated on pages 106, 107. Students wishing either of these degrees, with Chemistry as the principal study, should announce their intention to the Professor of Chemistry, and arrange with him a course of study and of practical laboratory work. Supervision and assistance will be given in both.

For Students in the College of Chemistry, see Catalogue of Students, and Summary of Students.

* If begun, must be continued through the Course.



A candidate for the degree of DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY must be a graduate of the College of Letters or of one of the Colleges of Science of this University, or of some other University or College of acknowledged good standing.

He must pursue a course of study, selected by himself from the following groups of courses and approved by the Faculty of Letters, embracing one principal and two subsidiary subjects, and extending over a period of at least three years, one of which must be spent in continuous residence at the University; but candidates for the degree of Ph.D., who are unable to comply with the requirement for a continuous residence, may be admitted to examination at the end of four years' study, provided that they spend at the University periods of time equivalent in amount to three academic terms.

He must present to the Faculty of Letters for approval, at least three months previous to the final examination for the degree, a thesis bearing on the principal subject of his course, and of such a character as to show his power to do original work. He must have a knowledge of Latin equal to that required for admission to the Classical Course in this University.
