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 man’s 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
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. (See Catalog of  ' gates
Courses.) Attention is directed to all Social Study disciplines (Anthro- of m
pology, History, Political Science, Social Work, Sociology) to Geology in field:
the College of Arts and Sciences; and to related or supplementary courses ; Comf
in the Colleges of A.griculture and Home Economics, Commerce, Education,  — Histt
and Engineering. Q uate

GEOLOGY  Y speci
The demand for the professional geologist comes from the need for   _ I
geological guidance in the exploitation of the nation’s 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`
veys, in museum work, and in college teaching. The Department of Geology  l "
is prepared to equip men and women for such work.  - Z.
