deans, department chairmen, and
graduate program chairmen of
the school.
The Ph.D foreign language re-
quirements have been under re-
view by the board for the past
two years. The decision came at
the board's meeting Wednesday
More Meaningful
According to Ralph B. Lewis,
assistant to the Dean of the
Graduate School, the board feels
that if each department formu-
lates requirements relevant to
their own particular field, the re-
quirements will be more meaning-
ful to degree candidate.
Lewis said present requirements
are lax enough to allow consider-
able substitution. "It gets to the
point where students elect non-
language courses as substitutes,
and it is often difficult to distin-
quish these courses from their
other doctoral work." This is not
in line with the idea that an extra
language is a "scholarly supple-
mient"to a candidate's education,
he said.
The board is asking each de-
partment and interdepartmental
program committee to submit its
recommendations before Jan. 1,
1968. The recommendations will
be reviewed by the board, and
should take effect by Sept. 1, 1968.
They will apply to all incoming
students and other students who
do not elect to'meet the present
requirements prior to Sept 1, 1969.
Minimum Requirements
Lewis said the departmental re-
quirements should be "a minimum
requirement applicable to all stu-
dents, and not an optimum re-
quirement" which may be filled by
course substitutions.
The board also stressed in the
report that "a continuing review
of the doctoral programs under,
the supervision of the Executive
Board is essential if the Graduate
School is to be effective both in
the enhancement of its programs
and in the distribution of finan-
cial support."
