Fourth Year-Course A.-Christian Sociology. The fundamental
principles of Sociology and Ethics are taught and discussed, and the
social theories and practical policies of Sociology are considered in
their relation to the Church of Jesus Christ.
Fourth Year,-Course B.--Christian Pedagogy. This course is
given as the more practical side of training men and women who
may do personal work or teach Bible classes in the congregations, in
missions, or in the homes; conduct Bible readings and in other ways do
church work. It is supplemented by the regular courses in psychology
and pedagogy as offered in our college. The course is open to all but
it is best to take it at the close of the school work. Pupils, lessons,
grading, equipment, and methods of teaching will have consideration.
Actual practice will be had. A number of small text books will be
used. A history of the "Sunday School" movement will be sketched,
and the vices and virtues will be pointed out. About the close of the
year a study in soul-winning, or personal work will be made. This
course shows how to teach a Bible lesson, how to enlist both students
and parents, how to have Bible study in the home, how to do regular
and departmental work in the congregation and how to do personal
work with the wayward and lost. Three hours a week.
N. B.-This course is offered by mail to those who are unable to
attend school but who are desirous of becoming more proficient and
useful in the church of the living God.
