The Department of Home Economics Education offers a composite major in home
economics leading to the Bachelor of Science degree and vocational certification
through the State Department of Public Instruction. A Master of Science degree
is also available.

The major purpose of the department is to prepare students for teaching;
however, graduates can also apply their knowledge to other professional areas
of home economics and to the enrichment of family life. The curriculum in-
cludes a broad program in all areas of home economics preceded by a back-
ground in the sciences.

For admission to the education program, students are required to (1) have
at least a 2.25 grade-point average, and (2) pass a grammar and spelling test
administered by the Teacher Certification Office unless a score of 20 or higher
has been achieved in the English portion of the ACT. Clearance must be re-
ceived prior to registering for Education 301B.

Due to the nature of the required course work and the time involved, it is
imperative that students seek advisement from the Home Economics Education
Department at the earliest possible date.

CoHnnarative Literature

Professors: R. Britsch (Chairman, 113 JKBA), Spears.
Associate Professor: T. Britsch (Assistant Chairman).
Assistant Professors: Davis, Green, Marshall.

In this department, two areas of study are brought together: humanities and
comparative literature — areas that are related in two principal ways. First, both
are concerned with the interrelationships of two or more disciplines in literature
and the other arts. Second, although both provide basic courses in their own
areas, they also make use of the offerings of other departments in the construc-
tion of programs for their major students. The Department of Humanities and
Comparative Literature offers the Bachelor of Arts degree in humanities and
the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in comparative literature.


For capable students in the humanities whose educational objectives are not met
by a conventional major in one department and a minor in another, the Uni-
versity offers an interdepartmental major and minor including 50 semester hours
in art, history, literature (including foreign literature), music, and philosophy.
Students are advised to support these subjects with additional courses in phi-
losophy, the social sciences, and other related areas. Students will also com-
plete a foreign language program sufficient for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Of the
50 semester hours required in art, history, literature, and music, at least 25
must be upper-division work.

Although the educational and vocational goals of most students are perhaps
best served by a conventional major and minor, selected students will profit
from broader training which includes intensive work in several of the humanities
subjects. Such a program has broad cultural value. Through it, students may
acquaint themselves with the relationships among the various humanities sub-
jects and obtain a valuable liberal education consisting of substantial, well-bal-
anced work in the broad field of the humanities. Students in the Department
of Humanities and (Comparative Literature may also certify to teach by empha-
sizing either English or one of the foreign languages in a composite major pro-
gram. (See the Department of Education section.)

It is recommended that the student arrange his course sequence so that his-
torical relationships can be observed as far as possible; for example, it is desir-
able to take courses emphasizing early periods in art or history or music si-

Students may enter the humanities program only with permission of the chair-

Humanities majors complete the English composition requirement by taking
Engl. Ill during the freshman year and Engl. 251 during the sophomore year.
