Capen, Samuel Paul
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
It is of special importance that students in foreign countries who may be seeking educational opportunities in the United States should have accurate information as to what institutions in this country have to offer. For this reason, preparations were made for publication of a document which should show the organization of American education with special reference to universities, colleges, and professional schools; state and explain admission requirements with special reference to the needs of foreign students; and outline the general and specific opportunities to be found at American institutions of higher education. The manuscript transmitted herewith gives information on these points and on many others of value, not only to the prospective student from foreign countries, but to all who may he interested in the present facilities for higher education in the United States. The bulletin is presented in seven sections. The six chapters of Section I are as follows: (1) Organization of education in the United States; (2) Organization of the typical university; (3) Independent technical and professional schools; (4) Independent and denominational colleges; (5) Higher education of women; and (6) Comparison of American and foreign institutions. Section II contains information on: (1) Living conditions; (2) College life; and (3) Higher educational centers, distances from ports of entry, and cost of travel. Section III covers: (1) College entrance requirements; and (2) Typical curricula. Section IV presents a list of the principal departments or schools of the institutions described in Section VI, devoted to various branches of liberal, scientific, and professional study. Section V contains tables of degrees mentioned in this bulletin and the abbreviations used to designate them. Section VI describes the organization and offerings of 74 universities, colleges, technical, and professional schools which have already been frequented by foreign students or which give courses likely to prove of special interest to foreign students. Section VII presents 4 statistical tables and a list of medical colleges rated as class A by the Council on Medical Education of the American Medical Association. An index is also provided. Individual chapters include footnotes. (Contains 7 illustrations and 4 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
