Courses of Study. 



In order to meet the wants of a larger class of Students, six regnlar 
courses of study are provided, namely: The Normal English, Belles Let- 
tres, Science and Literature, Classical, Art, and Music. Students may adopt 
anv of these courses exclusivelv, or nuiv select such studies from them as 
they desire, sul)ject to the api)roval of the Faculty. 

The Normal I^iglish is designed to meet the increasing demand for 
teachers in our ('()mnu)n Schools, and is heartily commended to young 
ladies and gentlemen who desire thorough instruction and drill in the Eng- 
lish hranches. To those who complete this course a Diploma, exi)ressing 
thi' scholarsiiip attained, will he given. 

The lUlles Lettres Course is s})ecially arranged to accommodate young 
ladies who may wish to omit the Higher Mathematics heyond Elenumtary 
Ah'-ehra and (ieometrv. It thus atlords opportunity to connect studies in 

r^ *. 11*. 

Music and Art with a well selected course in Literature and Science. 

The Course in Science and Literature is intended to give wider culture 
and more thorough mental discipline. It dillers from the Classical Course 
mainly in that it omits the (Jreek Language entirely, and makes Latin elec- 
tive with (jcrman or I'Vench (hn"ing the lirst two years. Lefore entering 
upon this course, the Student nuist he thoroughly ac(piainte(l with the Coiu- 
luon iMiglish hnineliL's. 

The ("Ja^sical Coin"se is nuieh more extensive than is ordinarily pursued 
at Seminaries. It will compare lavorahly with the (ju'riculum adopted hy 
oui- l)esl institutions of learning. We ofler it with entire coidideiu'c to 
voung men who are prej>aring loi" professionid lile, and also to young 
ladies who aspire lo superioi' intellectual culture. The preparation for 
tlii-> coiir>e is ;i thorough knowli'dge of the studies embraced in the Vvv- 
paralorv ( 'ourse. 

^'ol^l^ riien (h^iiinij, to tMitcr the lower oi" hiiiher classes in ('olleire are 
:ill(»we(l t<» take -uch >tudies as tluy need for that {)urpose.

General Information, 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY 

Is an institution of high grade, with ample facilities for giving 
young ladies and gentlemen a sufxn'ioi' (Mlucation. It is organ- 
ized ui)on tlu^ plans which ]ia\(' been approved by long ex- 
perience, and a(lo])ted by the best schools in this country, 
end)racing all modej'u a])pliances in means and methods of 
instruction. It was foumled in 1848, and is reu'ularlv char- 
tered bv the Lei)islature of the State of Pennsvlvaiiia, and 
authorized to colder degrees upon those who complete the 
[)rescribed courses of stud} . 

The Seminary is umhn* the ])ati*onage of the (central Penn- 
svlvaina Confei'cnce, beinu" owned and ])racticallv manau'cd 
bv the Prc^achers' Aid Societv. As this investment was rathei' 
to ])romoteth(^ important work of Higher Chi'istian Education 
than to mak(^ money, the paramount ])ur])Ose is to combine 
thorough insti'uction and careful moral training with the com- 
Ibrts of a good home, at the lowest possible ratios. 

LOCATIOX. 

Williamsport is one of the most beautiful and healthy places

displave(l in the character of its puhlie buildings and prixate 
I'esidences, and the moral a|)pliances with which it is furiiishe(|. 
In small towns and \illages the lacilities for culture, intellect iia I 
as well as aesthetic and moral, are generally limited, raixdy 
i'(^achiiiu" bevond the institution itself, and hence student life 
must become monotonous, lacking the inspiration which a

with many other valuable results, have establishe(| th(^ fact

I regard it as one of tlie best institutions in tlie country for those wiio liave 
not t he time or means to complete a full eours(^ in the hitrhe'r coUeg-es, but as far 
as its eoui'se goes, it compares favorably even with tliese. 

It combines the most approved methods of study and drill with home com-

Improvements have been introduced by President (iray, and the Institution is 
now on a good basis, with fair prospects of future prosperity.

Waverly, Md., May, 1878. 
I know of no school that I could recommend more cheerfully to those having 
children to educate than Dickinson Seminary, now under the control of Kev. Ed- 
wai-d J. (iray, whom I consid(n- eminently qualilled to till such an important posi- 
tion. Having had one son and daughter educated in this institution, and one son 
there at the present time, T am free to say that the advantages of home comforts, 
healthfulness, discipline and facilities for mental and moral culture offered by 
Dickinson Seminary, are, in my opinion, all that those seeking higher education, or 
parejits looking for a schO(jl tor their children, could ask or desire.

some time, I clieerfuUy recommend the Institution to all who may have children 
to educate, believing t'hat the facilities for Improving the mind ar(^ not all the ad- 
vantages to be enjoyed there ; the home-like comforts afford<Hl, and the (; ire taken, 
not only of the health, but also of the morals, give it a great advantage. In fact, 
every advantage Is afforded that Is necessary to make It a tli'st-class Institution. 
The kindness of the President, Rev. E. J. iivay and wife, as well as the professors, 
is highly spoken of by the students. A. M. Montelius,
