General Conditions for Graduation. For graduation, 180 hours of instruction, besides military drill and physical training during the freshman and sophomore years, are to be completed. In the case of students relieved from military drill and physical training, an equivalent in hours is added to the 180 hours. For those entering in and after 1897 the work of the entire course is elective, except as regards military drill, and gymnasium, and is subject only to the limitations prescribed by each department of instruction. Students are, however, advised to lay out definite and systematic lines of study.

DEPARTMENTS OF INSTRUCTION.
SEMITIC LANGUAGES AND LITERATURES.
The work in this department falls under three heads.
The Languages. An elementary course in Hebrew will be given each year. The advanced work in this language is so arranged as to cover in three years the leading writers of the Old Testament and some parts of the Mishnaic and Talmudic literature. General students with linguistic interests, and those preparing to teach, are advised to begin their study of the Semitic languages with the Arabic, which will also be offered each year. Aramaic and Egyptian will alternate with Assyrian and Ethiopic. In the Semitic Seminary, one term each year will be given to epigraphical studies.
The Literatures. A course of lectures on the most important literary productions of the Semites will be given annually. For this course a knowledge of Semitic languages is not required. The lectures will be devoted in part to a discussion of questions of author
ship, date, literary composition and historical value, and in part to a translation and elucidation of the texts themselves. Much attention will be bestowed on the Old Testament. Thus an opportunity will be afforded to students who are not familiar with the Hebrew to become acquainted with the results of scientific Bible-study. The Hebrew apocrypha and pseudepigrapha, the Mishnah and the Talmud, the Quran and the Arabic poets, the Babylonian Gilgamish epic and the Book of the Dead will be discussed in a similar manner.
The History. In a series of lectures covering three years, an outline will be presented of the political and social history of Babylonia, Assyria, Persia, India, Armenia, Syria, Arabia, Ethiopia, Egypt and the Spanish Caliphate.
Bracketed courses will not be given in 1899-1900, but may be expected in 1900-1901.
