Graduate Work
At Marquette
To enable students and teachers to
take advanced study more easily than
if they were to come to Ann Arbor, a
limited graduate course will be of-
fered this summer; at the Northern
State Teachers College in Marquette.
This course will be a regular part
of the Summer Session and is an-
nounced only for 1938 until its suc-
cess can be determined. Eight hours
may be taken and will carry credit to-
ward a master's degree.
For this year instruction will be
given dealing with the high school
curriculum, adjustment, and Ameri-
can political studies. Prof. Harold M.
Dorr of the political science depart-
ment and Dr. Edgar G. Johnstone of
the University High School will make-
up the faculty.
This is the first time that the Uni-
versity has tried such an experiment,
and is one of the features of the
present Summer Session. The facil-
ities were obtained through the cour-
tesy of President Webster H. Pearce
of Northern State Teachers College
in Marquette.
Courses which will be given at
Marquette will include "The High
School Curriculum," a study of the
normal high school curricula and pro-
posals for improvement and change,;
and "Principles of Guidance and Ad-
