New Curriculum

In 1931, the college hired consultants to review the curriculum and make appropriate recommendations. The result was a new plan that was implemented in 1933 (compare to the "new design" shown in the image at the upper right from the 1931 Pikes Peak Nugget - a student publication). In the first two years, students took courses in the School of Arts and Sciences. Then they had to be admitted to one of three divisions: the School of Letters and Fine Arts, the School of Social Sciences, and the School of Natural Sciences. Mathematics belonged to the third division and the curriculum was divided between the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Natural Science. The 1933 catalog presented the mathematics curriculum in this way:

The School of Arts and Sciences

The School of Natural Sciences
