The social institutions of the English people will be carefully considered, with a view of learning the lessons to be drawn, from the great social, religious and political changes in the History of England. The Norman conquest, the commonwealth and the revolution of 1688 mark epochs in this work about which cluster minor events preceding and following each. An attempt will be made to place these events into their logical groups.
European History. This course will cover the period from the commencement of the crusades to the First Hague Conference. A brief survey of the Hague Conference will be made.
The results of the religious enthusiasm and desire for adventure which were the main-springs of the crusades, will be classified and the ways by which the great Christian church developed its power and the means by which it maintained that power will unfold as the topics are developed. This is one of the most interesting periods of all history. Only mature students will be registered for this course.
Vocal Music. Instruction in the vocal music class will consist in reading the Scale, Sight-Reading to enable the student to read at sight any of the simpler musical compositions, writing from sound, Choral work, Choir singing and Church music.
Two hours per week.
