Courses Offered to Alumnae

For several years, a program of continuing education through home study was offered to alumnae in the subjects of literature, history, natural science, music and drawing.

The catalog of 1874 described a program of

independent study to be pursued at home [including] the most important periods in Latin, French and German literature with translations from specific authors; different departments of English and American literature; portions of Ancient, Mediæval and Modern History, and topics in the Natural Sciences. Either Music or Drawing may be substituted for one of the two courses required to secure the certificate which will be given after examination in the work assigned.”
