ARTS AND SCIENCES 65 8. Students who want for the work of their major department a back- ground in the foundations of Western civilization through courses in Greek, _ Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, or ancient civilization. JSS. 9. Students who wish, through Greek and Latin, to build the background Q; of their English vocabulary for use in the leamed professions (law, medicine, teaching, the ministry, etc.) or in literary or public work. g 10. Students who want to fulfill through Greek or Latin or Hebrew or Arabic the foreign language requirement or course requirements. The emphasis in this department will be threefold: ZH 1. On interpreting Classical, Hebraic, and general Middle Eastern culture in its relation to Western Civilization. 1 2. On learning to read Creek, Latin, Hebrew and Arabic-according to 3 the individual students needs and preferences. 4 3. On developing a background for Classical or Semitic scholarship for 3 those who will teach or do graduate work or research in these fields. 6 The student, in working out his major, may place emphasis on Greek, or on Latin, or on Classical civilization, or on Hebrew and Hebraic civilization, or on Arabic and Middle Eastern studies, or on a combination of these. To this end, six majors are offered: Latin, Greek, Classical Civilization, Hebrew B com and Hebraic Civilization, Arabic and Middle Eastern Civilization, and Ancient , and Languages and Civilization. ANTHROPOLOGY Arabic Anthropology is the study of Man in all his aspects, past and present. It emitic must concern itself with anything that concerns Man, and thus it synthesizes edieval the materials of a large number of separate studies and disciplines in both the social and biological sciences. Basically, anthropology is divided into (1) Phy- Heldsr sical Anthropology, which deals with mans origin, evolution, and growth, the Aiddlc relationships of races, and mans physical response to his total environment; and _t lan, (2) Cultural Anthropology, which includes prehistory (or archaeology), and ethnology (or social anthropology), the study of the culture of various so- m the cieties. Attention has been directed chieiiy toward "primitive" peoples, in the attempt to leam how such aspects of mans behavior as religion, language, _ social controls, and economic activities have developed and interacted on each parmg other. But civilized" groups, as well, are studied with the broad viewpoint `gmm and emphasis on understanding the total scope of mans life. While many of the Departments advanced courses are planned for stu- \tmHT dents interested in professional training, the introductory courses Anthropology dicine, 1 and 2 should be of much wider interest. They survey the entire Held, and net the show the relations between all the facets of human activity, throughout mans long occupation of the earth. These courses emphasize the essential unity of mt for mankind and fumish a basis for further work in many different fields of the or the social and biological sciences. In addition, properly qualified students in other repre. departments will Hnd the advanced courses sufficiently broad in scope to be of radio value to them. Anthropology 142, Culture and Personality, is of particular ,qujr- interest to Psychology majors. Students who intend to major in Anthropology should know that advanced l OI. the degrees are required by nearly all institutions that hire professional anthro- le area pologists. However, smaller colleges are adding Anthropology to their curricula. ) leam Properly qualified anthropologists presently have a wide variety of employ- Ts will ment possibilities, not only in teaching or research, but in the many practical applications of this Held.
