In addition to these it owns several of the more tl expensive pieces of apparatus, such as several delicate balances for analyt. ‘ u ical work; a grand model Bunsen & Kirchoif spectroscope; platinum appa- u ratus; a glass model ice-machine. These will be added to from time to time, S as the needs of the Department demand and the resources of the institution 6 permit; as it is now, however, the equipment is such as readily to enable ’ the student to obtain at first hand a good working knowledge of the prin- tl ciples of chemical science. yr counsrs IN CHEMISTRY. fil The Chemical course is one of the several scientific courses oiiered by E the College. It is offered with the view of preparing the student forlifo A 1, work in Chemistry, or of fitting him for the study of medicine and kindred 0 professions. To the accomplishment of this purpose the following course S, of study, extending over a period of four years, has been adopted. U STUDIES REQUIRED. The hrst year is devoted to the study of English, German, Physiology, if Free-hand Drawing, and Mathematics, including Plane Geometry, Trigo- U nometry, and Algebra. The second year to German, Physics, Botany, Y Chemistry, and Mathematics, including Solid and Analytical Geometry and “ Calculus. The third year to Theoretical Chemistry, English, Calculus, 1* French, and laboratory work on the Chemistry of the metals and on Quali- ti tative Analysis, Mineralogy, and Blow-pipe Analysis. The fourth year to S Quantitative Analysis, Organic Chemistry, Chemical Reading on advanced d topics, and to Chemical Research, History and Political Economy, Logic Y and Mental Philosophy. F' For further information as to requirements, the Schedule may be cou- U sulted, page 59. b THE TRAINING IN CHEMISTRY PROPER. The study of Chemistry proper, as outlined in the above, is suilicient iu _,, its scope to bring the student into close contact with the great fundamental H truths of the science. ` The course in General Chemistry, extending through the second and third terms of the second year, consists of lectures and recitations live times . weekly on the non»metals and their compounds and the simpler laws of t chemical change. The lectures are illustrated by experiments; the labora- tory work is carefully directed, and the student receives every possible n encouragement to do creditable work. / t~ In the third year the study of Chemistry consists of laboratory work and Theoretical Chemistry. The study of Theoretical Chemistry, con- c sisting of lectures recitations, a11d readings five times weekly throughout r the year, is intended to acquaint the student with the greatest generaliza- . i tions and theories of modern chemistry and their historical development. t _ V ..... ····
