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

ment of Geography is prepared to offer necessary training to students for _ Foy;
, these economic activities. _ cept

The demand for the professional geologist comes from the need for _ I
geological guidance in the exploitation of the nations mineral wealth. Its It ml
relation to mining and to oil and gas exploration is such that geological = resea
services are indispensable to companies engaged in developing this mineral -; Dam
resource. Opportunities are also open with state and federal geological sur- ; to th`
