Education, Secondary In order to receive a teaching certificate in the field of secondary education a student must complete a degree program which includes one of the following patterns of concentration. Subject majors of 30 semester hours and subject minors of 20 hours; 2 subject majors of 30 hours each or one subject major of 30 semester hours and 2 subject minors of at least IS to 18 semester hours each. At the present time secondary education students may receive either a teaching major or minor is the following areas: biological sciences, business education, chemistry, English, history, mathematics, music, physical education, physics, political science, speech, art, foreign languages, secretarial science. In addition to the subject matter major the secondary teachers are required to take 21 hours in the field of professional education plus the general education requirements required of all other graduates. .During the 1961-62 school year the secondary program was strengthened by the addition of Mr. Paul Pickett as supervising teacher of the secondary students. Elementary Education Elementary education majors from Upper Iowa University have for years won recognition as superior teachers throughout the Midwest. Today there are more than twenty times as many Upper Iowa graduates who major in elementary education as there were five years ago. A comprehensive program has been carefully organized by Mrs. Harold Austin, Mr. Russell Baker, and Dr. Vearl McBride, in cooperation with all the other subject matter departments on the campus. A student entering Upper Iowa who plans to major in elementary education has his complete pnogram outlined during Freshman Registration. Students entering the elementary education program must also complete an additional subject matter ma­ jor of 30 semester hours; a subject matter minor of at least 20 semester hours or two subject minors of at least IS to 18 semester hours. A variety of laboratory experiences are required of all elementary education majors in addition to 9 full weeks of practice teaching in one of the area schools under the supervision of a carefully selected master teacher, a nursery school, reading clinic, and an enrichment , program for gifted children con- ' stitutes additional laboratory experiences.. All prospective teachers both elementary and secondary are carefully screened so that any superior candidates remain in the program for the four full years. We are proud to announce that for the past several years none of our elementary and a very small percentage of our secondary teachers have experienced any difficulty in securing positions satisfactory to them. All elementary and secondary students are required to have a "C" average of his entire program before he or she is allowed to do student teaching. In addition to this these students cannot have a grade lower than "C" in any of their required subjects. Psychology The psychology department offers either a 15 or 20 hour minor in psychology. Students majoring in many of the other subject matter areas will find psychology to be an ideal minor. The psychology minor offers an excellent background for those students who expect to do graduate work in such fields as guidance, special education, education, business, science, cr psychology. During the 1961-62 school year Mr. Baum will be assisted in the psychology department by Mrs. Edward Bradley. The addition of this part-time person should allow the faculty in psychology to de- PROF.

Philosophy and Religion The courses in philosophy and religion are planned primarily as a part of the general education program of the university. In addition they assist in preparing the student for graduate or professional study in either field. A minor consisting of 16 semester hours may be taken in philosophy or religion. During the 1961-62 school year courses in philosophy and religion will be taught by Mr. Frank Jones and Mrs. "William Esters and Mr. Charles Nairn. Physical Education From the beginning of time civilized society has been interested in and has felt the need for physical education. History tells us that man's first preoccupation was "physical" in nature — hunting for his food, fighting to protect his family from enemies and building shelters to protect them from the weather. Such activities demanded physical development beyond question. Thus, the ability to run, jump, throw, leap, vault, and climb became part of man 's instinct. The age-old big- muscle activities take on an add- WELCOME COLLEGE STUDENTS and FACULTY We're happy that you have chosen Upper Iowa for your higher education Remember U» — When in need of any* thing in the jewelry fine STEVENS JEWELRY Oehvein, Iowa When Thinking About Any Athletic Needs Whether It Be • FOOTBALL EQUIPMENT • ARCHERY • TENNIS • TABLE TENNIS Or What Have You Contact Ken's Sport Shop West Union, Iowa Ample Parking On Highway 18 East of West Union BE SURE AND CHECK OUR Boat and Canoe Rentals New Guns of All Kinds Used Guns All Kinds of Ammunition At KEN'S SPORT SHOP ed importance in today's world of space, gadgets and pushbuttons. Educators today feel that the new educational concept which calls for the education of the "whole child" must provide for physical education in the total education program. At Upper Iowa University, the department of physical education offers a program of study which meets adequately the state requirement for the certification of teachers of health and physical education. Majors in physical education are required to study biology, anantomy, physiology, and health as well as theory and technique of coaching major and' minor sports. Majors are expected to show proficiency in many of the basic sports. In addition to the major in physical education, students may major in another subject, such as science, social science and business administration. There are several combination major- minors which are possible under the present program. IF a student desires to teach elementary school physical education he may register for a minor which is designed to meet definite stand- 6 College Edition Wednesday, September 13, 1961 Fayette Leader Fay*fct», Iowa ards for certification in that area. The gymnasium, swimming pool, bowling alleys, Softball diamonds, track and tennis courts are available for recreational and informal play. An adequate program in basic sports and intramural activities is administered to keep students active throughout the school year. The physical education department is happy to announce that a full-time person has been added to the women's physical education faculty. We expect this pnogram to expand rapidly within the next few years. Miss Joan Heidricks has been added to the department as a full-time person.
