  The courses offered in this department are intended to give a broad view
of biological
chemistry useful to the general agricultural student, and to develop men
fitted for in-
structional or experimental work in the various fields of chemical activity
applied to
agriculture. Courses 110 and 120 are for students desiring a more detailed
knowledge
of the special subjects treated and are preliminary to greater specialization.
 These
courses should be preceded or accompanied by work in biology and organic
chemistry.
Physiology and bacteriology are desired prerequisites. All other advanced
courses in
this department are open to undergraduates and graduates who have had the
necessary
preliminary training.
