The Organization and Administration of Teachers College: Departments of Instruction


by James E. Russell - 1900

The educational administration of Teachers College is by departments, each of which has its own director (generally of professorial rank) and a full corps of instructors. The departments are as follows: Education, English, French, German, Greek, Latin, History, Biology, Geography and Geology, Physics and Chemistry, Mathematics, Kindergarten, Fine Arts, Domestic Art, Domestic Science, Manual Training, Music and Voice Training, and Physical Training. In a sense all departments in Teachers College are departments of education, but the distinction is kept mainly for the supervision and direction of instruction in the Horace Mann School. No department, however, undertakes work that is done adequately in other faculties of the University. In history, the languages, natural sciences, and mathematics, therefore, few collegiate courses are offered in Teachers College; and in systematic and experimental psychology, philosophy, ethics, anthropology, economics, and social science the resources of the University are amply sufficient for all needs.
