This thesis contains the results of three surveys which were made to try to determine the most important courses in the major field of economics, general business, and accounting. These surveys were conducted from college catalogues, industry, and graduates of Fort Hays Kansas State College. The results of the surveys are presented in tables with a written discussion of the results. This project is intended to aid the small college with enrollments of less than 3,500 students, in selecting the most important courses in these three major fields of study. The thesis is divided into seven chapters: the "Introduction”, a "Review of Literature”, the “Methods of Procedure and General Results", the "Survey Results of the Economic Courses", the “Survey Results of the General Business Courses”, the "Survey Results of the Accounting Courses”, and a "Conclusion”. Also included is bibliography containing twenty-seven selected references to supplement the survey results. The articles cited include both research in the field of business curriculums, and general discussion articles of interesting content. Three appendixes are also included which contain supporting tables, lists of colleges and companies surveyed with introductory letters and forms, and letters of comment from the companies.
