Geolc achie ENGLlSH, SPEECH, AND DRAMATIC ARTS _ Egg); Though many of the courses in the Department are planned to fit the ' needs of other departments and colleges, most of them are designed to meet BIS; 5 the undergraduate and graduate needs of those who may wish to specialize in Gcoli English, Speech, and the Dramatic Arts. The majority of students who take English courses do so either because Geeli 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- Gem ture. And others take language, speech, and dramatic arts courses because Geek they need to learn the accurate, precise use of language; need speech ex- perience as a part of their preparation for such professions as law, the ministry, GEO], teaching, and salesmanship; or training in drama and theatre leading to a Geol< career in little theatre work, dramatic criticism, and in a few cases in profes- Gmll sional acting. The Department offers training in language study; English, American, and 6**01* . . . . . . Gco1 comparative literature; creative writing; speech; and the dramatic arts.

At the prcscnt time three major fields of activity utilize cw 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 prepared to offer necessary training to students for these economic activities. In addition to the training of professional geographers, the Department of Geography contributes directly to the fulhllment of the College of Arts and " "" Sciences requirement in Social Studies (Geography Sa, b). To non-geography majors in all colleges of the University the Department of Geography offers a wide selection of supplementary and elective courses which contribute im- Pla portantly toward a liberal education. F0 , A foundation in all phases of Geography is required of all department ` for majors seeking a career in the field. For those who do not wish to become pro- WO fessional geograpliers, a major in Geography may be arranged. (See Catalog of _ 103 Courses.) ad GEOLOGY Cl The demand for the professional geologist comes from the need for geo- logical guidance in the exploitation of the nations mineral wealth. Its relation to mining and to oil and gas exploration is such that geological services are U indispensable to companies engaged in developing this mineral resource. Op- gt, portunities are also open with state and federal geological surveys, in museum work, and in college teaching. The Department of Geology is prepared to equip h, men and women for such work.
