University of Virginia Library


The subjects taught in this school are:

1. The French, Italian, Spanish, and German Languages, the
English in its Anglo-Saxon form, and their literature.

2. The History and Geography of Europe from the fall of the
Roman Empire to the present day.

There are two classes in French, one for beginners, the other
for more advanced students; and the same arrangement is made,
when necessary, in the other languages. Opportunity is also given
to practice speaking the languages. The method of instruction is
by lectures, examinations, written exercises, and comments on the
text-books as read in the lecture-room, the principal classic authors
in each language being used for this purpose.

Two degrees in this school are required as a condition for obtaining
the degree of A. M.
