Master of Science Degree.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Yale corporation has voted to establish the degree of Master of Science in the Sheffield Scientific School. The new degree is general in character and corresponds to that of Master of Arts in the academic department. The degree is conferred on graduates of Yale and other universities, of two years' standing or upwards, who have taken their first degree in science and who pursue successfully a higher course of study under the direction of the governing board. Such a course will involve at least one year of resident study, followed by an examination and presentation of a satisfactory thesis, in some department of science. All candidates for this degree must submit their proposed courses of study to a committee of the faculty for approval before the end of October of each year. The fee for graduating will be ten dollars.

It is expected that this will draw a class of students hitherto repelled by the high Doctor of Philosophy degree, and who do not wish to specialize.
