Bachelor Degrees To Be Offered In 22 Areas By Dr. Clarke, Dean of Faculty Last year's sophomores entering Weber College this fall will be able to chose their majors from among 22 fields and their minors from among 26 fields. The majors include: accounting, business administration, secretarial training and business education, elementary and secondary teacher education, art, English, music, speech and drama, botany, zoology, medical technology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, history, poilitical sciences, psychology, sociology, power mechanics engineering technology, electronics engineering technology, industrial engineering technology, tool and manufacturing engineering technology. Degree All courses needed for the Bachelor's Degree in the above fields will be offered. In addition, three-year courses in pre-law and pre-medicine will be offered. The first two years of engineering and family life will continue to be offered as in the past. Industry The new technology programs are designed to meet the needs of Utah's rapidly expanding manufiacturing industry. The need for such courses is shown by the facts that Utah has added 18,000 workers to its payroll since 1956 in manufacturing, and more are to be employed. Labor Also indicative of the need is the fact that in a period of high unemployment across the nation, acute demand exists for technologists of all levels. The electronic breakthrough during the past decade has produced a need for technicians not now available. A strong labor demand exists in most of the professions. Enrollment Up By Dr. Clarke, Dean of Faculty The addition of an expected 400 Junior Students this fall, together with an increase of sophomores, will up enrollment at Weber College by over 20% to 2700, not including off campus students. Next year the addition of the first Senior class will increase the student body by 17%. The expected on-campus students will number 3200 during fall quarter of 1963-64. Remain Constant The Freshman class is expected to remain nearly constant in numbers during the next two years, increase by about 12% in 1964-65, and then grow by 30% in 1965-66. As a result, the College enrollment in this year will reach 4000 a 77% increase above the present student body. By 1975-76 the enrollment will likely reach a figure between 6,000 and 75,00 depending on continued population increases in the Ogden area, the number of students transferring from junior colleges, dormitory expansion, and curricular growth.
|Title||1962 Signpost vol. 4 no. 1|
|Subject||College Student Newspapers and Publications - Weber State College|
|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
