The summer course will begin June 14th and end August 6th. It should
be of especial interest to teachers, as it can be taken by them without inter-
fering with their professional labors, and to bankers and bank employees,
who may take the course in the summer, when their duties are least con-

In 1922 the first classes were organized and active work started. The
school was named in honor of the late Richard H. Yancey, for years chief
editorial writer of the Nashville Banner, and one of the most noteworthy
editors in the South, and widely regarded as the Henry Watterson of Ten-

The School of Commerce and Journalism offers a complete professional
course in business. It is the aim of the course to afford a sound knowledge
of fundamental business facts and principles, in addition to such practical
training as a school can furnish.

The same forces which brought about the passing of the apprenticeship
system for training in the older professions are at work today in business.
The old method of learning business, like the older method of training in
law and medicine, required the ambitious young man to go into place of
business and learn what he could by experience. Today the complex social
and industrial organizations make it impossible for a man to learn more than
the details of one branch of business.

There is no place where all the foundations and intricate framework for
the business career can be so thoroughly and so soundly laid and fabricated
as in the university.

The Commerce Faculty has committed itself to the trust, not of ideal-
izing a business career but of dignifying it as a profession worthy of the
highest attainments of all who aspire to positions of leadership in public
service. Its purpose is to develop in young people a capacity for the future
responsibilities for the executive. Its supreme function however is to moti-
vate the lives of its young men and women and fit them for the duties of an

enlightened citizenship. Whatever their ultimate vocation, its graduates
are equipped for a useful life.


Students who have not completed a four-year high school course but who
are judged worthy of admission to the special one-year course will be per-
mitted to carry this work, but will not be eligible for the Certificate of Pro-


The degree, Bachelor of Science in Commerce, will be conferred on stu-
dents who, in addition to the general requirements for a Bachelor's degree,
complete at least twenty-four semester hours of work in Commerce and in
addition at least twenty-four semester hours in the Departments of Econo-
mics, Sociology, History, Political Science and Journalism. The student's
work in the subject and all other elective work must be approved by the
Dean of the School.

For the benefit of students who desire to prepare for some specific posi-
tion in as short a time as possible, special courses have been arranged.

Nine Months

Many students wish to become stenographers in as short a time as pos-
sible. Our nine-month stenographic course is similar to that offered by
business colleges for many years, but it has the trained teachers of the Uni-
versity Faculty to give it, and in that respect it is similar to the regular Uni-
versity Credit Courses.

work required of both if the amount of work in either is not enough to justify
employing two persons.

A Certificate of Proficiency in the respective course will be given to those
students who successfully complete any of the above outlined courses.
Students who pursue the Special Short Commercial Courses will be per-
mitted to take part in only one major sport during the entire course.

The School of Commerce is closely affiliated with the College of Arts
and Science. Students in Commerce at Cumberland will thus have the
advantage of superior training both in the special subjects of commerce
and in the general subjects of culture. This correlation is essential, if our
graduates are to be qualified to achieve large success in the modern business
professions. Moreover, in order to make the training intensely practical,
provision has been made for the following extra-curricula activities:

1. Special lectures by men and women who have attained distinction in
particular fields of commercial effort.

2. Visits to the offices and shops of large firms and corporations where
different processes and systems will be studied.

3. A cooperative business-training plan, whereby advanced students are
to spend a part of each term acquiring practical experience and efficiency,
with remuneration.


Tuition fee per term of five months, $50.00.
Books and supplies per term, approximately, $10.00.
Contingent fee, per term, $10.00.

Some work in Journalism is required of all four-year students in this


Students enrolled in the Journalism classes find numerous opportunities
for the practice of their profession. Openings are offered on the staff of the
college weekly, The Cumberland Kick-Off, published with the aid and direc-
tion of the Journalism Faculty, and students from the school are encouraged
by the director to join and perfect their work on this staff. The college
annual, The Phoenix, which also is published under the oversight of the
director of the Journalism classes, also offers opportunities for prospective
writers. In addition, two local weeklies, the Lebanon Democrat and the
Lebanon Banner, have opened their news columns to the Journalism stu-
dents, and many of these students have had contributions of theirs in print
weekly. Nashville and other papers have also published considerable ma-
terial written by Cumberland students and some few students have received
financial compensation for their work in addition to the valuable training
in the actual news writing field.


The same requirements exist as those for entrance in other college de-


The degree of Bachelor of Science will be conferred upon those students
who successfully complete, in addition to the general requirements for a
bachelor degree in the other schools, twenty-four semester hours in Jour-
nalism, and in addition at least twenty- four hours in the Departments of.
English, History, Sociology, Political Science and Commerce. A total of
128 semester hours is required for graduation. The work of students in the

Cumberland University, with its affiliated schools, has always been pro-
vided with opportunities for music study, and the work of the past is grate-
fully acknowledged. The growth of the University and the increasing
demand in the South for standard Academic music study induced the au-
thorities of the University to establish a Department of Music, organized
on the broadest art basis and modeled after the foremost European insti-

For students who can satisfy the regular college entrance requirements,
a total of twelve hours in Music may be counted toward the Baccalaureate
degree. The courses from which these credits may be taken are:

College-piano, four hours; Harmony, four hours; Counterpoint, two
hours; Musical Analysis, two hours; Musical History, two hours.

Cumberland University offers a four-year's course in Music, leading to
the degree of Bachelor of Music.

In addition to the course in musical subjects as outlined below, candi-
dates for the Mus. Bac. degree are required to take sixty-seven semester
hours in the Academic Course, of which the following are required:

Two Foreign Languages, not less than six hours in each 12 hours

English 10 hours

Physics - 4 hours

Bible and Ethics 8 hours

Mathematics 5 hours

43 hours

Students wishing to study musical subjects only will be classed as spe-
cial students. If later they wish to enter as candidates for the Mus. Bac.
degree, full credit will be given for all work done in music.

All candidates for the Mus. Bac. degree are required before graduation
to submit to the Director an original composition, either vocal or instru-
mental, and to give a public recital of about one hour's duration.

All students in music are required to take part in the recitals when
requested to do so. This is one of the most valuable features in the entire
course of study. It is a free advantage to all pupils.

Our system of training pupils for public performance is absolutely suc-

Pupils are required to memorize both technical exercises and pieces.
The former, in order that the whole attention may be given to the absorb-

The course of study preparatory to the regular course in Piano covers
from three to five years, according to the age and ability of the student.

below a list of some of the material used, from which selection is made ac-
cording to the individual need of the student:

Gustav Damm, "Method for the Pianoforte." Czerny, "Exercises in
Passage-Playing," Op. 261. Bach, "Little Preludes and Fuges." Koehler,
Op. 151. Bertini, Op. 100. Studies by Loeschorn, Berens, Duvernoy, etc.
Sonatinas and pieces by classic and modern composers.

The tuition charge is the same as for students in the regular course.
