FACULTY OF ARTS. 


PROPOSALS TO AMEND THE 
GENERAL COURSE 


October 29, 1912 


SCHEME 1. 


The Committee on Arts Studies submits the following recomi- 
mendations for the revision of the General Course, to become 
effective in October 1913. 

These changes, if adopted, will necessitate the revision of the 
Special Courses. If possible the amended courses—General and 
Special—should come into force at the same time.

A student without previous training in Greek may substitute for 
Greek of the First and Second Years, a preliminary course in the 
First Year, and Greek of the First Year in the Second Year. 

A student exercising this option must in the Third Year take Greek 
of the Second Year in addition to the work of the Third Year. 


THIRD AND FourtTH YEARS. 


A student in the General Course who is entitled to register in the 
Third Year is required to submit to the authorities of his College, 
his selection of subjects for each of the Third and Fourth Years. 
Registration cannot be completed until the College has formally 
approved of his selection. 

A subject common to the Third and Fourth Years and chosen for 
the Third Year must be continued in the Fourth Year.

The subjects of Biology and Geology and Chemistry in the Fourth 
Year are open only to those students who have taken the preliminary 


courses in these subjects. 


February 26th, 191. 


SUGGESTED AMENDMENT OF SCHEME I. 


It has been suggested that in the First Year under 5 an additional 
option of Greek be given, and the same in the Second Year under 5, 
it being understood that the language taken under 5 is to be con- 
tinued in the Third Year. It is suggested that the time devoted to 
languages in the Third and Fourth Years be reduced from four hours 
per week, and that another Preliminary Science be introduced as an 
option under 4. In the Fourth Year that 2 should be placed among 
the other options, and that four of these options in all should be 
taken. 

That there be two examinations,.,one at the end of the Second 
Year, the other at the end of the Fourth Year, except in cases where 
subjects are completed in one year. 


SCHEME II: 


A plan for the General Course submitted at the request of
