Transcript ACADEMIC Graduate Work Gains in Importance at UH The great expansion of knowledge in the twentieth century and the introduction of many specialized techniques in business, industry and the professions have increased immeasurably the importance of studies beyond the bachelor's degree. An increasing number of men and women are finding study and research leading to a master's or a doctor's degree necessary not only in the development of their cultural life but also to keep them abreast of current trends in their businesses and professions. Professional degrees are gained with stress on basic academic preparation upon admission, and an increasing trend toward thesis and dissertation requirements. Graduate work was first offered at UH in 1939. DEAN—Dr. R. Balfour Daniels received a B.A. from Princeton and a LL.B., M.A. and doctorate from Yale. Also a professor of English, Dr. Daniels was formerly dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Graduate School DEAN—Dr. R. Balfour Daniels Junior College Two-Year Course Leads to Degree In the spring of 1927, the Board of Education established the Houston Junior College. When UH was established in 1934, the Junior College was continued as a part of the University system. One of the largest junior colleges in the state, it offers a two-year educational program and confers degrees, diplomas and certificates after completion of required courses. DEAN—Dr. Charles F. Hiller assumed the position of Junior College dean in 1955. Dr. Hiller holds a B.A. from Lehigh University and an M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard University. Dr. Hiller has served as bursar, registrar, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences and vice president in charge of development and public relations. He is also a professor of English.
