one year of continuous work for the general student. These courses, so far as possible, should be taken in the Junior Colleges and in order.

The courses offered in the Senior Colleges are divided into five groups and are arranged follows:

Group A. Ancient Oriental and Classical History, from the beginning of civilization in Egypt and western Asia, to the age of the Antonines.

Group B. The Development of Mediaeval Europe, from the decline of the ancient classical civilization to the end of the Renaissance.

Group C. The History of Modern Europe, from the Reformation to the close of the nineteenth century.

Group D. The Constitutional and Political History of England.

Group E. The Constitutional and Political History of the United States.

In the Graduate School, full liberty is allowed in the choice of subjects. Special courses are offered upon topics connected with Mediaeval, Modern European, English, and American History. In general, these subjects will be varied from year to year in regularly recurring series.

For advanced students, special seminar courses are conducted each quarter for the double purpose of introducing the student to the methods of historical research and also for the investigation of unsettled or disputed questions.

The Historical Club, a voluntary organization of instructors and students, meets fortnightly for the reading and discussion of papers and the review of books and journals.

In addition to the general requirements for obtaining advanced degrees, the following special requirements are announced. For convenience, five subdivisions of the field of history are recognized in the work of the Department: (a) Ancient History, including Oriental and Classical History; (b) Mediaeval History; (c) Modern European History, including contemporary English History; (d) English and American History; (e) American History and Modern European History.

1. The candidate for the Doctor's degree in History will be expected to pass an examination not only upon the courses which he may have taken in the Graduate School, but also upon the general field of History. But the main stress of the examination will fall upon that one of the five subdivisions within which the topic of the thesis submitted lies.

2. In selecting a secondary subject for examination, the utmost liberty in the choice of a department is allowed. In each case the department concerned will determine the amount to be submitted.

3. In cases where History is chosen as a secondary subject, the candidate may submit for examination any one of the five subdivisions mentioned above.

4. In all cases, the candidate shall also have completed courses 1 and 2 of the department of Political Economy, courses 11 and 25 of the Department of Political Science, and course 72 of the Department of Sociology.

5. For the Master's degree at least one year's work in the Graduate School shall be submitted for examination. The candidate is advised to present one of the five periods suggested above as the basis of his examination.

6. The candidate, in all cases where History is presented, either as a prin. cipal subject or a secondary subject for the Doctor's degree, shall, in addition to the general requirements in French and German, be expected to have such knowledge of the language or languages in which the chief sources of the main period submitted are found, as shall enable him to use such sources independently.

7. In all cases candidates are advised to call upon their respective examiners a month before the proposed examination, and definitely inform each of the work done, and of the topics which it is proposed to submit for examination.

8. Candidates for the Master's degree should select a subject early in the course and hand in a type-written copy at least two months before their examinations.
