DEGREES B.A. Florence State Teachers College is primarily a teachers college, but because this institution believes in broad cultural training as well as in professional competence, it offers a wide selection of four year courses leading to either the general liberal arts degree of B.A. or the more specialized professional and pre-professional de- gree of B.S. These degrees represent a satisfactory basis for graduate work in recognized graduate schools of the country. The campus, located on approximately the highest elevation in the city, affords a delightful setting for a college. A ten year expansion period, including an increased enrollment from 650 to approximately 1,400 and the erection of seven new buildings, has made this institution the third largest college in Alabama. Its faculty member- ship and its curriculum have been enlarged proportionately. The influence of this institution on the entire Tennessee Valley has greatly con- tributed to the prestige of the community " the cultural center of North Alabama.
