Chemistry. The remainder of the Group Elective may be chosen from allied subjects. In the College of Agriculture about two thirds of the course is prescribed in preliminary, liberal, and technical studies. The remainder is distributed among Free Electives and electives consisting of agriculture and cognate studies.
COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE.
President KELLOGG; Professor STRINGHAM, Mathematics, Dean; Professors GAYLEY, English; GREENE, Botany; HESSE, Hydrodynamics; HILGARD, Agricultural Chemistry; LE CONTE, Geology, Zoology; PAGET, French and Spanish; PUTZKER, German; RISING, Chemistry; SLATE, Physics; SOULE, Civil Engineering; WINN, Military Science; Associate Professors EDWARDS, Mathematics; HASKELL, Mathematics; LAWSON, Mineralogy; WHITING, Physics; WICKSON, Agriculture and Horticulture; Assistant Professors JOHNSON, Biology; KOWER, Instrumental Drawing; LOUGHRIDGE, Agricultural Chemistry and Agricultural Geology; O'NEILL, Organic and Physiological Chemistry; SENGER, German; WOODWORTH, Entomology.
REGULAR UNDERGRADUATE COURSE.
The requirements for admission to this college are: (1) English, (3) Algebra, (4) Geometry, (5) Government of the United States, (11) Physics; either (6) Latin or (14) English or (15) French or German; and, until May, 1897, one of the subdivisions of (12)—for which see page 43. But beginning with May, 1897, two of the subdivisions of (12) will be required; namely, Chemistry, and either one topic in Advanced Mathematics, or Botany, or Zoology (or an equivalent in Entomology).
Preparation in the branches of Natural Science named above is valuable, not so much for the actual knowledge of facts it brings, as for the habit of accurate observation it should enforce. Hence, instruction with objective demonstration by competent teachers is strongly recommended. Its proper conduct in the various branches is indicated on pp. 43, 44. Previous experience of farm life and work is, of course, a valuable adjunct.
The requirements for graduation from this college, with the degree of B.S., are set forth in the following scheme:
BOTANY-Vegetal Structure and Morphology
Systematic and Economic Botany.
ENGLISH-Supplementary Reading and Paragraph Writ
FRENCH-Introductory Course and Le Roi des Mon-)
1st Term. 2d Term.
AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY-General Course...
COGNATE ELECTIVES-Agriculture and one of the following: Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Meteorology, Biological Sciences, and Engineering
MILITARY SCIENCE-Two exercises each week
AGRICULTURE AND HORTICULTURE-General Course... COGNATE ELECTIVES-Agriculture and one of the following: Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Meteorology, Biological Sciences, and Engineering
THESIS-An original study under the direction of the
MILITARY SCIENCE-Theoretical Course.
Special Students. Students in Agriculture not desiring to take the full course, nor to receive a diploma, may be admitted to special or limited courses for a longer or shorter period, and may attend only special lectures, recitations, and practical exercises, according to their requirements, so long as they maintain a good standing in their studies and general conduct. Persons desiring to enter as Special Students or as Limited Students are advised to
correspond with the Professor of Agriculture with regard to the needful preparation for the subjects they desire to take.
To students unable to give more than two years to their studies, the following course is suggested:
Agriculture and Horticulture
Agricultural Elective (including Botany and Entomology) 6 units.
Opportunities Afforded by the Experiment Stations. The peculiar conditions of California with regard to soil, climate, and situation, have rendered useless for farmers here much of the experience of older regions, and have made imperative a new study of the bearing of these conditions upon the agriculture of the State and of the Pacific Slope. The College of Agriculture has for fifteen years conducted an experiment station, where questions of this nature have been investigated and determined, and where data for a full knowledge and description of the agricultural features of the State are collected and organized. In recent years, aid from the Government of the United States has greatly extended the scope of such investigation by the establishment of outlying culture-stations, and by making possible a more comprehensive plan of experimentation in the central station at Berkeley. Here the results of work at all the outlying stations are elaborated, discussed, and published in the form of occasional bulletins or of annual reports. Advanced students have the opportunity of taking such part in this work as their qualifications permit.
For a description of the Experiment Stations and the Agricultural Laboratories, see pages 147-148.
COLLEGE OF MECHANICS.
President KELLOGG; Professor STRINGHAM, Mathematics, Dean; Professors CHRISTY, Metallurgy; HESSE, Mechanics; RISING, Chemistry; SLATE, Physics and Analytic Mechanics; SOULE, Civil Engineering; WINN, Military Science; Associate Professors ARDLEY, Free-hand Drawing; EDWARDS, Mathematics; HASKELL, Mathematics; WHITING, Physics; Assistant Professors CORY, Electrical Engineering; LEUSCHNER, Least Squares.
The requirements for admission to this college are: (1) English, (3) Algebra, (4) Geometry, (5) Government of the United States, (11) Physics; either (6) Latin or (14) English or (15) French or German; and, until May, 1897, one of the subdivisions of (12)-for which see page 43. But beginning with May, 1897, two of the subdivisions of (12) will be required; namely, (a) Solid and Spherical Geometry, and (b) Chemistry.
The requirements for graduation from this college, with the degree of B.S., are set forth in the following scheme:*
PHYзICS-Elementary Course: Lectures and Laboratory..
Laboratory Experiments and Qualitative
DRAWING Free-hand and Instrumental, and Descriptive
3 units. (2) units.
2 units. (2) units.
DRAWING-Descriptive Geometry and Mechanical Draw
SURVEYING-Lectures, with Field Practice and Mapping.
PHYSICAL CULTURE-Three exercises each week
15 units. 15 units.
In the scheme as here tabulated, alternative electives are indicated by means of parentheses.
METALLURGY-Structural Metals and Fuels.
CIVIL ENGINEERING-Strength of Materials.
DRAWING-Graphical Statics and Mechanical Drawing..
1st Term. 2d Term.
MILITARY SCIENCE-Theoretical Course
THESIS-Upon some subject in Mechanical Engineering..
I. General Physical Laboratory.
The Mechanical Laboratories are designed to offer facilities for tests and experimental inquiry, such as (1) submitting to actual test, and verifying directly, principles developed in the lecture-room; (2) building and testing machines designed by the students; (3) investigating such subjects and engineering problems as are not only calculated to impart training in methods of investigation, but the results of which may prove of value to the engineering public at large; (4) ascertaining the character and proper treatment of materials, and acquiring familiarity with the appliances and processes necessary to the construction of designs. Opportunity is afforded the student to acquire skill, under the instruction of an able mechanician, in the working of metals by hand and machine tools; in wood-turning, planing, and carpentry; in molding and pattern-making; in forging and tempering tools. These processes are well illustrated in the construction of machines for experimental work. After the student has become sufficiently acquainted with these processes, and is able to recognize differences in appliances and methods, visits of inspection are made to manufacturing establishments in San Francisco
