College News and Departmental Notes

by Departmental notes - 1915

The study of the problems of sex-education which was introduced in Teachers College in the summer session of 1913 has now become a part of the regular work, being included this year in a half-course and a unit course of ten lectures for graduate students and in a series of fifteen biological lectures supplementary to the course in human biology for undergraduates. The lectures given by Professor Bigelow in the summers of 1913 and 1914 have been supplemented by a number of lectures given before parents' associations, groups of young men, and several religious organizations, and will be published in the near future by the Macmillan Company under the title of "The Larger Sex-Education," This book will completely survey the sex-education movement and its literature. The title of the book represents the point of view that has always prevailed in all discussions of sex-education at Teachers College. The narrow "sex-hygiene" movement of ten years ago that proposed to solve the alarming sex problems by instruction that emphasized the abnormalities of sex as they affect health is rapidly giving way to the larger viewpoint of sex-education which, while not omitting any essential facts of hygiene that are likely to be helpful as a protection of health, is stressing the normal aspects of sex in relation to life.
