Geolq ~ achiex ENGLISH, SPEECH, AND DRAMATIC ARTS EOD C Though many of the courses in the Department are planned to fit the OHDS needs of other departments and colleges, most of them are designed to meet first sj the undergraduate and graduate needs of those who may wish to specialize in GEOIO English, Speech, and the Dramatic Arts. { The majority of students who take English courses do so either because CEOIO they expect to teach English in high school or college, or because of the per- sonal satisfaction that they derive from great books. A few take English be- cause it provides a good background for an editorial career, or that of profes- sional book reviewer, dramatic or literary critic, or author of imaginative litera- ture. And others take language, speech, and dramatic arts courses because they need to leam the accurate, precise use of language; need speech ex- perience as a part of their preparation for such professions as law, the ministry, G I teaching, and salesmanship; or training in drama and theatre leading to a Ggglgi career in little theatre work, dramatic criticism, and in a few cases in profes- Geolo; sional acting. The Department offers training in language study; English, American, and Geoloj comparative literature; creative writing; speech; and the dramatic arts. Course work leading to the A.B. and M.A. degrees is available in most of these areas Gcolo; and to the Ph.D. in English language and literature. Geolo; GEOGRAPHY The need for well-trained personnel in the field of Geography has become increasingly apparent. At the present time three major fields of activity utilize Ceclv the services of competent professional geographers: Education (Elementary, Secondary, and Collegiate), Government (National, State, and City), and Busi— ( ness (Trade, Transportation, Publishing). The Department of Geography is J prepared to offer necessary training to students for these economic activities. In addition to the training of professional geographers, the Department l of Geography contributes directly to the fulfillment of the College of Arts and ——; Sciences requirement in Social Studies (Geography 3a, b). To ton-geography majors in all colleges of the University the Department of Geography offers a wide selection of supplementary and elective courses which contribute im- plan; portantly toward a liberal education. For A foundation in all phases of Geography is required of all department {Oy 1 majors seeking a career in the field. For those who do not wish to become pro- wor}. fessional geographers, a major in Geography may be arranged. (See Catalog of logic Courses.) add Grower Chu The demand for the professional geologist comes from the need for geo- logical guidance in the exploitation of the nation’s mineral wealth. Its relation to mining and to oil and gas exploration is such that geological services are indispensable to companies engaged in developing this mineral resource. Op- Cu"? portunities are also open with state and federal geological surveys, in museum Sum work, and in college teaching. The Department of Geology is prepared to equip the ` men and women for such work. 1*019*
