Changes in A.M. Requirements.

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences has recently made certain changes in the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts, according to which graduates of colleges and scientific schools of good standing will be hereafter admitted to the degree on substantially the same conditions as Harvard Bachelors of Arts. The practice that has hitherto prevailed of rating candidates from other colleges in terms of the Harvard degree of Bachelor of Arts will be abandoned.

The standard of work for the Master's degree will, however, not be lowered, and strict supervision will be exercised over all programmes of study for the degree. These programmes will ordinarily be passed upon by the committee of the division or department in which the candidates are to work, and not as hitherto by the Administrative Board of the Graduate School only.
