Abstract

Prior to the year 1913, there had been come schools at the Utah State Agricultural College that had had biological science, exact science, language and arts, and social science groups for the graduates to fill requirements in before they could graduate from these particular schools. However, it was not until the year 1913 that all of the schools, with the exception of the engineering school, were requred tomake the students meet these basic group requirements. It should be of importance to the physical education department to know whether or not the courses taken by physical education majros to fill group requirements are the courses that will likely do these students the most good in life-in-general and in their profession of physical education. Obviously any imformation along these lines should be of importance to the students themselves. The purpose of the present study is to determine the following: (1) the authorities viewpoints as to whether or not the physical education department should outline the physical education student's courses that he takes to fill group requirements; (2) the courses that the authorities think the physical education student should take to fill the group requirements; (3) the courses the physical education graduates took to fill the gorup requirements; (4) the extent the courses the physical education graduates took to fill the group requirements have helped them in (a) physical education and teaching, and (b) in life-in-general; (5) the courses which are available to use in filling group requirements that the physical education graduates think would have helped them most in (a) their profession of physical education and teaching, and (b) in life-in-general, had they taken them while in college.
