College of Family Living

Blaine R. Porter, Dean (1206 SFLC)

The following departments are in the College of Family Living:

Child Development and Family Relationships

Clothing and Textiles

Environmental Design

Family Economics and Home Management

Food Science and Nutrition

Home Economics Education

The Baccalaureate Degree

The College of Family Living contributes to the total University community by
offering courses designed to develop insight into and understanding about various
aspects of family life. All the colleges of the University contribute to the cur-
riculum, providing majors with background in the arts, the humanities, and the
social, physical, and biological sciences as well as courses within the College
of Family Living. The four-year program in family living, therefore, provides a
broad liberal education together with preparation for one of a number of pro-
fessional specialties.

Much of the work that was at one time confined to the home has moved
out into the community, which has resulted in highly specialized, professional
services becoming available to all homes and families. Areas of specigdization
within the college include child development, clothing and textiles, dietetics,
early childhood education, environmental design, family economics, family re-
lationships, food science and nutrition, home economics education, and home
management. Students may continue in these specialties through the baccalau-
reate to advanced degrees.

Specific requirements for each major offered in the College of Family Living
are described in detail in each departmental section.

The Associate Degree

The associate degree program in family living is designed for students who wish
to become more proficient in the resp>onsibilities relating to marriage and parent-
hood and at the same time develop occupational skills. The requirements in
the 64-hour curriculum are as follows:

General Requirements 20 hours

Engl. Ill and 212—6 hours; Health 130 — 2 hours; P.E.— 1 hour;
Hist. 170 — 3 hours; Religion (including Relig. 121 and 122) —
8 hours.

Group Requirements 12 hours

Biol. sci. — 3 hours; phys. sci. — 3 hours; soc. sci. — 3 hours; hum.
and fine arts — 3 hours.

Departmental Requirements 32 hours

Courses may be selected from child development and family re-
lationships, clothing and textiles, environmental design, family
economics and home management, and food science and nutrition.
A student may choose to take most of the work in one department
or combine studies from all departments, depending on his or her
family and occupational goals.

Assistance in planning the student's program is available through the program
supervisor in the College of Industrial and Technical Education.

The two-year curriculum may be converted at any time to a four-year pro-
gram leading to the baccalaureate degree. Guidance in transferring to the



COLLEGES 79



baccalaureate program may be obtained through the College Advisement Center
of the College of Family Living.

Graduate Study

Because of the attractive opportunities available and a serious need for the
contributions of highly trained professional people, outstanding students are
encouraged to pursue graduate studies. The College of Family Living, through
approval of the Graduate Council, provides curricula leading to the master's
degree in child development, family relationships, food science and nutrition,
and home economics education. The doctor's degree is offered in child develop-
ment, family relationships, and marriage and family counseling.

Students who have completed all requirements for the bachelor's degree and
who wish to continue their studies are registered in the Graduate School and
are under the jurisdiction of the dean of that school. In order to participate
in one of the degree programs offered by the College of Family Living, the
student must make application through the Graduate School specifically for
degree-seeking status.

Professional and Honorary Organizations

Sigma Delta Omicron is a professional club with membership open to all students
in the college. Special interest sections of the club are sponsored by each
department.

Department of Art

The Department of Art serves two main purposes: (a) the preparation of creative
leaders in the various fields of the plastic and graphic arts, and (b) the building
of an appreciative audience for these arts.

Major programs are offered which lead to careers in art education, commercial
art, interior design, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics. Four degrees
are offered: (a) the Bachelor of Arts, (b) the Bachelor of Fine Arts, (c) the
Master of Arts, and (d) the Master of Fine Arts. The Bachelor and Master of
Fine Arts programs place an emphasis on performance.

The Master of Fine Arts degree is a two-year program. It requires a one-man
show, a terminal project, and a scholarly report of the graduate's art activities
and terminal project.

in design, which may include ceramics, crafts, interior design, printmaking, and
commercial art.

A collection of more than seven thousand original works of art, by both
American and European artists, is owned by the University. Frequently changing
exhibitions of work by contemporary artists also contributes to general apprecia-
tion and to the instructional program. Exhibitions of students' work are held
regularly for analysis and criticism, and for furthering professional growth.
The Department of Art sponsors special lectures, demonstrations, and trips to
galleries as cultural enrichment activities.

Department of Communications

The principal objectives of the Department of Communications are to prepare
qualified students for professional careers in the major areas of mass communica-
tion and to help all students in the University gain greater understanding of the
mass media as they affect them in daily life.

The professional education program in communications offers specializations
in the following areas leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree: advertising and
public relations; journalism (newspaper, magazine, and radio-television journal-
ism); broadcasting; and teaching of journalism. Graduate programs leading to
the Master of Arts degree provide advanced courses and seminars in specialized
areas of the discipline.

Course offerings are supported by laboratory facilities in the areas of adver-
tising, reporting and editing, photography, and broadcasting. Broadcasting in-
structional facilities include the studios of KBYU-TV and KBYU-FM. Students
in advertising and journalism have opportunity to combine their instructional
program with staff assignments on the Daily Universe campus newspaper.

As a link between the student's academic preparation and his professional
career, professional internships are arranged for qualified seniors and graduates.
In these internships supervised experience is gained on the staffs of selected
newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations, and advertising agencies
and offices.



84 COLLEGES



The department sponsors a series of lectures on communications throughout
the year to bring students in contact with leading professionals and scholars
in the field of communications. Professional activities are also stimulated by
student organizations in advertising, journalism, and broadcasting.

Department of Music

The main objectives of the Department of Music are to help each student attain
through music the skills and proficiencies of an artist while he is gaining a broad
general education; to develop talent to the highest degree possible; to train
music teachers for their profession; and, through association with distinguished
artists and teachers, to help all BYU students acquire discriminating taste and
sound critical judgment.

The Bachelor of Arts degree is available with majors in music theory and
applied music. The Bachelor of Music degree is available with a major in music
education. The master's and doctor's degrees may be taken in musicology, music
theory, music education, and applied music.

Students who desire to become composers, arrangers, or music copyists, or
who wish to teach theory of music should pursue a major in music theory.

Every music major studies a certain amount of applied music in order to
develop proficiency on his major instrument or in voice. Students who wish
to become skilled performers in order to qualify themselves to assume positions
in the concert or professional world should major in applied music.

Prospective school teachers have the opportunity to major in vocal or instru-
mental music. Each program is designed to emphasize the essential aspects of
preparation for teaching in public schools. The master's degree program in ele-
mentary or secondary school music is designed to prepare teachers, supervisors,
and music consultants who can help classroom instructors teach music effectively.

A cultural atmosphere seldom equaled is provided through concerts and
recitals, including visiting groups and artists. The Department of Music sponsors
more than 285 concerts and recitals each year, not including the lyceum service
provided by student body activities and by the lyceum committee.

There is a musical organization for every student at BYU who is interested
in singing or in playing a musical instrument.

Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts

The speech area of the Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts provides prac-
tical training and experience to the general University student in public speak-
ing, discussion, and parliamentary debate. This is particularly applicable to the
prelaw, business, and teaching professions. In addition to course work, several
competitive speaking contests are sponsored to encourage speaking activities.
These include the Donald C. Sloan Extemporaneous Speaking Contest on current
events, which offers tuition prizes; the Heber J. Grant Oratorical Contest on a
faith-promoting subject; and the Delta Phi Extemporaneous Speaking Contest
on religious topics. The department also sponsors the Speakers Forum at the
close of each semester.

The BYU Forensic Association offers an opportunity for all students to par-
ticipate in competitive speech activities on both the intramural and intercollegiate
levels. Interested students in all fields of study participate in more than thirty
debate trips during the academic year to many parts of the nation. During the
past ten years BYU has qualified for the National Debate Tournament at West
Point five times. Only thirty-six schools from among the nation's more than
two thousand colleges and universities are selected to participate in this
tournament.

The dramatic arts area offers programs leading to professional competency in
acting, directing, playwriting, technical (design, construction, and costuming),
and education. Its physical facilities are unrivaled in America, and they permit
an intensive production laboratory and experimental program which features
eighteen major productions and sixty-five one-act and experimental plays. In
