UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
SPRING TFIR A
FOR TEACHERS E S
March 2- May 24 1910. >
By the Constitution of Florida, the Legislature is re id to pro-
vide for the professional instruction of young men and young women
who desire to teach in the schools of the State.
The Board of Control of State Educational Institutions has made,it
the duty of the University to furnish such instruction to young men of
the white race.
The University makes the following provisions for the preparation
I. The full four years' college course leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Arts in Pedagogy.
II. A three years' course intended to qualify those who finish it to
pass the examination for State Certificates.

III. The one year Sub-Freshman course prepares teachers for the
first grade county certificates.
IV. A short term each year for the purpose of review and of
making up deficiencies in special subjects for either State or county cer-
V. Assistance by correspondence as a part of the'University Ex-
I. THE FULL COLLEGE COURSE OF FOUR YEARS
This course is to provide a LIBERAL EDUCATION while pre-
paring the student for the higher positions in the profession of teaching.
Even if the graduates of this course do not teach they will be qualified
to discharge the duties of citizens by intelligent service as supervisors,
trustees and members of school boards in the communities where they
may live. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Pedagogy is conferred
upon those who complete this course.
II. A THREE YEARS' COURSE
This consists of one Sub-Freshman or preparatory year followed by
the Freshman and Sophomore years of the full course named above. At
the completion of this course the student will be qualified to take the
State certificate upon examination, and will have done much other work
along the lines of general education.
I. THE ONE YEAR'S COURSE
This is substantially the same as the first year of the three years'
course just described. It is intended for those teachers and young men
preparing to teach, who have not the time at present to devote more than
one year to the work. Large liberty will be given in the choice of
studies so that teachers may spend their time on those subjects which
they most need to review. A course in Theory and Practice of Teach-
ing will be given and all students will be urged to make this a part of
Requirements for admission and studies of the course are set forth
in the current issue of the catalog, a copy of which will be mailed to
anyone requesting it.

IV. PROVISION FOR TEACHERS WHO CANNOT AT PRESENT BE
IN RESIDENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY
It is thought that some principals and teachers may desire to pur
sue a course of study leading to a college degree. The University of-
fers assistance to such persons. While at least two years of residence is
required, some of the subjects of the regular courses may be taken by
private study. The professors will outline the subject, and suggest col-
lateral readings and send quizzes and final examination papers, and give
certificates of the completion of certain courses. Teachers may thus
arrange to take the degree of A. B. in the University course in Pedagogy.
Courses in Pedagogy will be offered to any teachers who may desire
to better prepare themselves for their great work whether or not they are
looking toward a degree.
We invite correspondence concerning this work and refer any who
may be interested to the general catalog.
V. SPRING TERM
Thru the influence of the Educational Campaign we feel certain
that greater interest in education in Florida will be shown and.demands
for trained teachers with better salaries will come from every quarter.
The crying need now is for trained young men to become principals of
our small towns and city schools. All now recognize that there are
many ways to teach and conduct a school, but that there is only one best
and most economical way. The teacher who is trained for his work is
the one to whom the State and country are looking for the putting of
their schools on a higher plane.
The Spring term, which will be offered from March 2nd to May
24th, is especially arranged for the preparing of those who are ambi-
tious to occupy some of these good positions. Those who can may
enter the University on the 2nd of January and so receive the advantage
of five months' training instead of three. Every facility for study will
be given, and the whole equipment of the University will be at their
service to prepare them for the important work which they have chosen.
NO ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS ARE REQUIRED OF THOSE
WISHING TO TAKE THIS COURSE.
All the common school studies will be reviewed as maybe neces-
sary and individual instruction will be offered as required.
Those who desire a State Certificate and are working for same will
4 UNIVERSITY RECORD
find no better place for preparation than the State University owing to
our ample laboratory, libraries and other facilities. A few months of
work in the subjects required for the State Certificate under the instruc-
tion of our able faculty will materially aid in securing same.
The work in the common school studies will aim especially to pre-
pare for the examination for the county certificates.
