MASSACHUSETTS The age in which we live demands progress in the means and in the methods by which young men prepare for the duties of life. The course of study at the State College is not the result of tra- ditional methods. It recognizes the fact that the sciences are now applied in every department of practical affairs in a larger degree than ever before. The course makes due provision for the teaching of Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Geology and Mathematics. Since the dead languages ■ are not required, the time devoted to the study of Latin and Greek in many of our higher institutions, can here be given to other studies. The study of the English Language and Literature, and of Modern Languages, and the frequent exercises in Elocution, furnish excellent opportunities for developing the powers of expression. The study of the Modern Languages also enables the graduate of the State College to avail himself of the latest scientific results reached by French and German scholars. But the course is not limited to the Natural Sciences, Languages, and Mathematics. History, Political Economy, and the Science of Government, with special relations to the government of the United States, receive large attention. Nor are those studies in any sense neglected that are adapted to give one a knowledge of himself and of his highest interests. Mental and Moral Science constitute an important part of the cur- riculum. While these ample opportunities are offered at this College to every young man, whatever may be his vocation, the student who wishes to engage in any department of field work, whether farming, market gardening, the care of hot-houses, or any other kindred em- ployment, here finds special aids. It is the aim of the College to teach every science, as far as may be, in its relations to Agriculture, and to give all the technical instruc- tion in this department that our facilities allow. The ample grounds of the College, comprising nearly four hundred acres, furnish wide and increasing means of illustration and practical teaching. Physical training and discipline are promoted by the instruction and training in the military department, under an officer who is a graduate of West Point. In brief, the object of the course is to form the true man and the effective workman. The expenses are moderate that the advantages of the State College may be enjoyed by a large number of young men. Catalogues furnished upon application to the President.
