  I Only one of the courses. Soils I and Biochemistry 1, is required; both
may be taken if desired.
  2Sophomores in the Long Course are required to take one course of three
credits or more in each
of two of the following departments: Agricultural Engineering, Dairy Industry,
Economic Entomology.
Horticulture, Poultry Science, and Veterinary Science. A subject chosen as
an option may not be
included among the credits counted toward satisfying the major requirements
of any of the six
departments enumerated above.
  aThis is the second year of Military Science for those required to take
it the first year. See rule
on Military Science and Physical Education Requirement on page 198.
  'Landscape Gardening majors may take Agricultural Economics 117 in place
of Agricultural Eco-
nomics 1.
  Note: A student who has taken his freshman and sophomore work at the University
of Wisconsin,
whose grade-point average for these first two years of work is 2.6 or higher,
and who is recommended
by three of his sophomore instructors, may be permitted by the major division
or department of his
choice to pursue Advanced Independent Work during the remainder of his course,
which will enable
him to secure a master's degree at the end of nine semesters. See pages 233-234
for more detailed
information.
                             JUNIOR AND SENIOR YEARS
  The student ordinarily will carry from 15 (16)* to 17 (18)* credits per
semester dur-
ing his junior and senior years. At the beginning of his junior year the
student, with
the help of his adviser, should plan a program, well balanced with respect
to elective
and required subjects, especially in the major or split major, so that he
may easily com-
plete all of the requirements for the degree during the senior year. (See
page 199.)
                         SENIOR-GRADUATE STANDING
  Any senior in the College of Agriculture who is within six credits of having
com-
pleted all the requirements for graduation and who has the required grade-point
average
of 1.5 may be admitted to the Graduate School and earn residence credit to
apply toward
an advanced degree at the same time he is completing his requirements for
his bachelor
degree.
     OTHER COURSES IN THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE
                                   PRE-FORESTRY
  The University of Wisconsin does not offer a course in forestry.      However,
it does
offer, in the College of Agriculture, two years of work in pre-forestry study.
Upon
the satisfactory completion of the pre-forestry course, a student may transfer
to another
institution where forestry is given and there complete his work toward a
degree in
forestry.
  The pre-forestry work suggested is similar to the prerequisite training
required by
most forestry schools. However, it is advisable that the student, in the
spring semester
of his freshman year, confer with his adviser relative to the forestry institution
he
should plan to attend after he will have completed his two-year pre-forestry
course.
This will enable the student and his adviser to plan more thoroughly the
student's course
of study for his sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin. Practically
all in-
stitutions that offer degrees in forestry require that training in the summer
forestry
camp be completed before the beginning of the junior year. The following
curriculum
for the freshman year is recommended for students intending to take forestry:

college before September
1, 1939.
