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.

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.

The courses of study for the degree of Ph.D. are grouped as follows:

1. Intellectual and Moral Philosophy; e. g. (1) Metaphysics; (2) Ethics; (3) Esthetics; (4) Psychology; (5) Logic; (6) Philosophy of the Sciences; (7) Philosophy of Religion; (8) Philosophy of History and of Government; (9) History of Philosophy, general or special.

II. History and Political Science, comprising subjects in (1) Comparative Constitutional Law; (2) Constitutional Law of the United States; (3) Jurisprudence; (4) Political Economy; (5) Political and Financial History of the United States; (6) The Political History of Europe.

III. Philological Science; e. g. (1) The critical study of selected Greek and Latin Classics; (2) Greek Dialects; (3) Early Latin; (4) Greek and Roman Literature; (5) English Literature; (6) Old and Middle English; (7) Old Norse; (8) Gothic; (9) Old Saxon; (10) German Literature.

IV. The Natural Sciences; e. g. (1) Mathematics; (2) Physics; (3) Astronomy; (4) Chemistry; (5) Botany; (6) Zoology; (7) Geology; (8) Mineralogy.

Candidates for a MASTER'S DEGREE must previously have obtained the corresponding Bachelor's Degree, either at this University or at some other institution conferring it, on a basis officially ascertained by the proper Faculty to be equivalent.

The candidate for a Master's Degree must make application, through the Recorder, to the Faculty controlling the particular degree sought. The application must contain a full statement of the line of work upon which the applicant proposes to base his candidacy. On approval of the application by

the Committee on Higher Degrees, the candidate will be placed under the direction of a committee of three, from at least two departments, who shall have supervision of the candidate's work, conduct the examinations on his course of study, and pass upon the original dissertation to be presented by him. The course of study must cover a period of not less than one year, passed in residence; except as provided in the next paragraph.

In case the candidate for the Master's Degree has already received a Bachelor's Degree from this University, the preceding requirement of residence may, by vote of the Faculty concerned, be remitted; provided, however, that the approved course of study cover then two years instead of one. But the requirements for the degree are in no otherwise remitted, and this privilege is restricted to graduates of this University.

The principal subject presented by a candidate for the degree of Master of Arts or Master of Letters must be selected from group I., II., or III.; for the degree of Master of Science, from group IV.

The conditions under which the degrees of MECHANICAL ENGINEER, MINING ENGINEER, METALLURGICAL ENGINEER, and CIVIL ENGINEER are conferred, are given under the headings: College of Mechanics, College of Mining, and College of Civil Engineering.

The committee in charge of the work of any candidate for a higher degree consists of the heads of the several departments in which the candidate's studies may fall, and of such other members of those departments, or of other departments, as those heads may request to take charge of any part of his work; provided, that the committee consist of not more than five members. The head of the department in which the candidate's major subject belongs is chairman of the committee.


Any of the courses announced in the preceding pages may be taken by qualified graduate students. The courses indicated below, especially designed for graduate students, are regularly organized for class instruction. Such other advanced work will be provided as individual needs may require.



LATIN, Course 17.

ENGLISH, Courses 22-27.
