I ' \ t2 UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY Q U ECONOMICS Courses in the field of Economics are concerned with that seg- 2 ment of human behavior which is directed toward making a liv- j ing. The list of courses includes the Principles of Economics, Economic History, Applied Economics, Business Cycles, Labor » fi Problems, Money and Banking, Public Finance, Public Utilities, et cetera. Economic activity constitutes a substantial proportion of man’s Q total activity and is therefore worthy of study from the standpoint of acquiring a liberal education. Students interested in majoring in economics and in preparing _ themselves as professional economists or as specialists in such \ fields as taxation, labor relations, finance and statistics, should · j ,¤ add to their program of study other social science subjects and . work in Commerce. The latter courses assist greatly in understand- ji ing the field of Economics. GEOGRAPHY j 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 the services of competent professional ;g geographers: Education (Elementary, Secondary, and Collegiate), X! Government (National, State, and City), and Business (Trade, ,} Transportation, Publishing). The Department of Geography is prepared to offer necessary training to students for these economic activities. » ; In addition to the development toward professional geogra- · · phers, the Department of Geography contributes directly to the ; fulfillment of the College of Arts and Sciences requirement in . Social Studies (Geography 3a, b). To non-geography majors in i all colleges of the University the Department of Geography offers a wide selection of supplementary and elective courses. · A thorough foundation in all phases of Geography is required { of all department majors. For those who do not wish to become ‘ professional geographers, but desire a major in Geography, courses - in other fields may be substituted after major requirements have . 5 been met. (See Catalog of Courses.) Attention is directed t0 all Social Study disciplines (Anthropology, History, Political Science, 3 Social Work, Sociology) to Geology in the College of Arts and si Sciences; and to related or supplementary courses in the C0H€g€5 i of Agriculture and Home Economics, Commerce, Education, and Y Engineering. ` GEOLOGY 'l`he demand for the professional geologist comes from the need · for geological guidance in the exploitation of the nation’s mineral ~ wealth.
