        SECTION I-MAJORS IN AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE
  Many of the Wisconsin College of Agriculture students in the past have
entered
some phase of agricultural science and it seems probable that this field
will con-
tinue to provide many opportunities. In this field high scholarship is a
necessity;
only those students whose work in the first two years is of high quality
should plan
to enter the field. The Graduate School at Wisconsin requires for entrance
an aver-
age undergraduate record of 1.5 grade-points per credit.
  Students wishing to prepare themselves in Agricultural Science find it
necessary
to follow their undergraduate work with further training along some particular
line leading to the master or doctor of philosophy degree. For such students
it is
usually desirable to carry a broad general course as an undergraduate. The
three
general fields of particular importance are Animal Science, Plant Science,
and
Social Science.
  All of the general college requirements, including the required courses
of the
freshman and sophomore years, must be met by students majoring in any of
these
fields. The majors outlined below follow the regulations with respect to
a split
major.
  These majors have been approved by the Executive Committee and no special
action
is necessary by the student or adviser other than a statement by the student
of his
intention to follow one of these majors.
                          1-ANIMAL SCIENCE MAJOR
  Students carrying this undergraduate major may later wish to carry graduate
work in some of the following departments: Agricultural Bacteriology, Animal
Husbandry Biochemistry, Dairy Husbandry, Dairy Industry, Economic Entomology,
Genetics, Poultry Husbandry and Veterinary Science. The major requirements
will
be absolved by carrying not less than 25 credits selected from the following
list of
courses:
                                                                    Credits

  Students in this major must also carry at least 24 elective credits outside
of the
College of Agriculture. Basic science is recommended. It will also be desirable
for
stude its in this major to carry two years of at. least one foreign language.
