English Tops List Of Concentration Choices at Annex
English, and Social Relations still take top rating at Radcliffe as the fields of study with the largest number of concentrators.
Figures released from the Dean's Office yesterday showed that of 722 upperclassmen, 162-or 23 percent--are concentrating in English. Nearest competitor was Social Relations with 137 concentrators, comprising 19 percent of sophomore, junior, and senior students.
Also rating among the "big six" are Government with 69 concentrators; History 47; and Biology, 37. Girls evidenced the feminine bent for linguistics with 33 students majoring in Romance Languages.
Radcliffe concentrators differed from their Harvard counterparts in rating English and Social Relations above Government and Economics. History and Biology appeared, however, among the top six fields of concentration at the University.
The heavens failed to attract Annex concentrators this year with only two students majority in Astronomy. Other academic wallflowers are Geological Sciences, three concentrators; Slave, three; Germanic Languages, four; and Comparative Philology, five.
