The College’s Curriculum 1959-60

Our present curriculum, Justice Matters, is derived from a historical foundation of intellectual and moral empowerment. The Cabrini College Catalogue 1959-1960 outlines four specific aims:

  1. To provide a liberal education and integrate it with Catholic principles.
  2. To provide opportunities for growth in intellectual and moral power.
  3. To provide a coordinated program which aims to prepare its students to meet the requirements of further study toward advanced scientific work or a teaching career.
  4. To provide for its students a second and beautiful home where the emphasis is placed upon refinement, culture and self-control.

A Freshman’s course of study consisted of Theology and Moral Guidance (4 credit hours), English Composition (6 credits), Speech (4 credits), Latin or Mathematics (4 credits), History-Western Civilization (6 credits),  Science-Chemistry or Biology (8 credits) and 2 credit hours of Physical Education.  The Cabrini college catalogue 1959-1960 lists the prescribed courses.
