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 student’s 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 man’s origin, evolution, and growth, the
Aiddlc relationships of races, and man’s 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 man’s 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 man’s life.
While many of the Department’s advanced courses are planned for stu-
\’tm€HT 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 man’s
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.
