                                  APPENDIX
        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
continue 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 average 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 lead-
ing to the master's or doctor of philosophy degree. For such students it
is usually de-
sirable 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 inten-
tion 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,
Poul-
try 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 20 (24)* elective credits
outside of
the College of Agriculture. Basic science is recommended. It will also be
desirable
for students in this major to carry two years of at least one foreign language.
* Figures in parentheses ( ) apply to students who entered college before
September 1. 1939.
