64 UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY ECONOMICS Courses in the field of Economics are concerned with that segment of V human behavior which is directed toward the wealth-getting and wealth- _ using activities of man. The courses include the Principles of Economics, G Price Economics, Economic History, Business Cycles, Labor Economics, . Labor Legislation, Industrial Relations, Real Estate, Money and Banking, Public Finance, Public Utilities, et cetera. Economic activity constitutes a substantial proportion of mans total _ Gm activity and is therefore worthy of study from the standpoint of acquir- ` Geo] ing a liberal education. Students interested in majoring in economics and in preparing them- selves as professional economists or as specialists in such fields as taxation, GQOL labor relations, finance and statistics, should add to their program of study i GEO], other social science subjects and work in Commerce. The latter courses " assist greatly in understanding the field of Economics. Ggglj GEOGRAPHY ` E The need for well-trained personnel in the field of Geography has be- I 1% come increasingly apparent. At the present time three major fields of 5 activity utilize the services of competent professional geographers: Educa- l tion (Elementary, Secondary, and Collegiate), Government (National, State, r and City), and Business (Trade, Transportation, Publishing). The Depart- j plan ment of Geography is prepared to offer necessary training to students for _ Foy; , these economic activities. _ cept In addition to the development toward professional geographers, the k sourl Department of Geography contributes directly to the fulfillment of the Col- Q pale: lege of Arts and Sciences requirement in Social Studies (Geography 3a, , metr b). To non-geography majors in all colleges of the University the Depart- ~ Cher ment of Geography offers a wide selection of supplementary and elective courses. A thorough foundation in all phases of Geography is required of all 7 department majors. For those who do not wish to become professional i arts geographers, but desire a major in Geography, courses in other fields may : uncle be substituted after major requirements have been met.
