Flashback Friday: 1976 Schedule of Classes

by Brigitte Galauner on 2021-09-10T10:00:00-04:00 in Using Pfeiffer Library | Comments

Have you ever wondered what classes were like for previous Tiffin University students?  Today's Flashback Friday will give you a glimpse into college life in the 1970s.  The document below is the registrar's schedule of classes offered at Tiffin University during Term I of the 1976-1977 academic year.  The courses are categorized by department, room number, course number, and instructor.  The three digit numbers under "No." indicate the course level and the numbers under "Cr." indicate the number of credit hours that a student received for passing the course.  The course format is quite similar to today, where the classes meet in-person two days a week.

Since the 1970s, the course curriculum has expanded significantly and now includes undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D programs.  Tiffin University's course schedule would certainly take up more than one page today!  Thankfully, our list of programs and courses is now available online.

Which course would you take from this schedule?
