  1. Wybe Kroontje2



Some aspects of American (Land-grant) and Continental European educational philosophies important to university development in Turkey are described. In view of limited resources available and great demands for trained personnel it is suggested that before changing curricula in agriculture and soil science from 4 to 5 years the following alternatives be considered: (1)lengthening the semester period,. (2) introducing a summer session, and (3) establishing a graduate course of study.
