On the graduate level, the Department offers advanced work in the literature and philology of each of these three languages, leading at present to the Master of Arts degree. As a branch of the liberal arts curriculum, one of the fundamental aims of language study must be to broaden and deepen our acquaintance with the world about us by presenting new aspects of its culture and a more intimate knowledge of its peoples through the medium of foreign languages and litera- tures. In addition, the Department provides training for those interested in entering the diplomatic and various other Government services where howl- edge of foreign languages is required; it offers specialized preparation to pro- spective high school and college language teachers; it furnishes graduate and science students with the training necessary to use foreign language books and periodicals for reference and research. , MUSIC The music department provides the opportunity for cultural and profes- sional growth through intensive music study and participation, and presents a varied series of musical programs of cultural value to the entire university com- munity. A student whose prime interest is music may work toward the Bachelor of Music degree in Applied Music or Music Education, or the Bachelor of Arts degree. The courses of study leading to the Bachelor of Music degree are designed for those who plan to be professional performing musicians or school music teachers, and presume a considerable amount of musical experience on the pre-college level. The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music is a general cultural degree with emphasis in music, allowing more time during the ]unior and Senior years for the election of courses in related and other subject matter fields. All degrees offered by the Department of Music demand the fulfillment of the basic lower division course requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences as listed on page 54, in the belief that the ideas and concepts derived from such study are essential to the happiness and well-being of every individual. ` :
