Transcript INTRODUCTION The 1942-44 catalogue announced a new organizational plan, whirl] sets the stage for the greater University of Houston of the future, with the 10,000— 15,000 students envisioned by some of the University's leaders. The University now has the following schools: COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES JUNIOR COLLEGE COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION COLLEGE OF EDUCATION COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING GRADUATE SCHOOL COLLEGE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES Under this college, the University has three divisions — the Division of Cultural Arts, the Division of Sciences, and the Division of Social Sciences. Within the cultural art division are all standard courses toward the B.A. or B.S. degree, including general music, piano, chorus, voice, dramatics, art, English, journalism, puhlic speaking, and the modern languages ^French. German, Italian, and Spanish. The division or sciences includes such departments as biology, chemistry, geography, geology, mathematics, and physics and affords study in pre- medical, pre-dental, and nursing courses. All these vital wartime fields have had a boom in interest this year and many of our students and graduates have found and are finding their places in war work as physicists, medical technicians, nurses, dentists, doctors, chemists, etc. The division of social sciences is yet another important part of the University, educating our students for citizenship in a democracy and for the world of the post-war era. COFFEGE OF EDUCATION With more and more teachers leaving for the military services, and others entering war industries, the College of Education has had an increasing significance during the past year and has pledged to continue to encourage young women to enter the teaching profession, to urge former teachers to return as a service to their country. Maintaining our educational institutions at their full efficiency is seen to be essential to preserving the democratic way of life for which we are fighting. The education workshop, pioneered in Texas by the University of Houston in 1940, is to be continued and enlarged in ihe summer or 1943 as a training ground for teachers in fields depleted by the war and as a means of preparing teachers who have been out of the profession in recent years but are willing to renew their certificates and re-enter the held for the duration. COFFEGE OF ENGINEERING This college offers degree work in civil, electrical, general, and mechanical engineering — all highly important fields in wartime. Heavy demands have been made since Pearl Harbor on both students and teachers. The pilot training program, which this year was turned over to the navy, continues as part of the engineering school to train boys for the flying forces. The present quota is 40. but this is expected to rise as time goes on. Hundreds of boys trained at the University of I louston arc in military services all over the world — and led by such world famed aces as Jack Ilfrey. they're making a splendid record. THE COFFEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION The College of Business Administration has performed a particular service in Houston during this year 1942-43. Perhaps its most outstanding achievement was the establishment in September of a Downtown School of Business at 705 Fannin. The college has meanwhile taken a leading part along with the chemistry department in sponsoring a number or free government management and science classes for persons employed in local war industries. This work will be continued, at least for the duration, under what is known as the ESMWT program. GRADUATE SCHOOF The Graduate School continues lo offer M.A.. M.S., and M.B.S. degrees - with emphasis on teacher training. It was organized in 1939. THE JUNIOR COFFEGE This is an integral part of the entire University curriculum and was retained when the University of Houston was chartered in 1934. It was first organized in 1927. SCHOOL OF BUSINESS TRAINING A class in the Downtown Business School with Mr. Jerome Peschke as teacher. This school, organized downtown in the fall of 1942, has been very successful this year in training business workers for war jobs. It is part of the College of Business Administration, headed by Robert A. White. W. W. Frasure is assistant director.
