CURRICULA IN AGRICULTURE 197 SPLIT MAJORs-A split major is designed for the individual who wishes to prepare himself in a field of study involving courses in two or more departments. A series of split majors approved by the Executive Committee may be found on pages 226 to 233. Other plans for split majors may be worked out, but any new plan must be submitted to the Executive Committee for approval before the middle of the junior year. LONG COURSE A FLEXIBLE COURSE OF STUDY The Long Course is designed to permit the student to have a liberal selection of subjects. The only subjects which the Long Course student must take to fulfill the requirements for graduation are those listed below which normally are taken in the freshman and sophomore years. Beyond those, the student may select any undergraduate subjects to which he is eligible, in any part of the University he chooses, provided: (I) he takes a minimum of 45 (50)* elective and required credits within the College of Agriculture; (2) he takes a minimum of 20 (24)* elective credits outside the College of Agriculture and (3) he satisfies the requirements for a major or split major. An outline of the course of study for a four-year period is given herewith. A total of 124 (133)* credits and 124 (133)* grade-points is required for graduation. The reader should give particular attention to notations included beneath each year's cur- riculum.
