This bulletin, describing the opportunities in the United States for graduate study in agriculture and those closely allied sciences which have a direct application in agriculture, is the result of an inquiry made by the Bureau of Education in cooperation with the committee on graduate study of the Association of American Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations. The inquiry was confined to the agricultural and mechanical colleges, the State universities, and the institutions represented in the Association of American Universities. The bulletin lists courses offered for graduate students only and also those courses open to advanced undergraduates which may be taken by graduate students as major subjects for advanced degrees. No course is listed from any institution whose entrance requirements for 1911 are less than 14 units of high-school work--that is, the equivalent of the standard four-year high-school course--with the exception of the agricultural colleges of the University of Tennessee and Ohio State University, both of which require 12 units for admission. The subject matter of this bulletin is grouped under 19 headings, under which are included the names of the institutions offering courses on some phase of the subjects indicated in the headings. Following the names of the institutions are statements intended to indicate the scope of the work offered by the institution rather than the exact titles of the individual courses. As a supplementary statement to the courses listed, it may be said that opportunity for original study, investigation, and research on special topics is given under certain restrictions by most of these colleges. Under the headings botany, zoology, and the other general sciences, only such courses are listed as seem to have a direct bearing upon agriculture and may therefore be regarded as agricultural-science courses. Many courses are given under two separate headings where such cross reference seems likely to be helpful. [Best copy available has been provided.]
