As part of the program of the Massachusetts University Extension Courses, which are given by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, six Harvard professors will be among the speakers who will give a series of eight lectures on "International Affairs." The lectures will begin Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock, and will be given in the Lecture Hall of the Boston Public Library. The series will continue on each Tuesday thereafter. Provision has been made for those who wish to take the course as a college study, and to each person passing the course a credit value of one unit or one semester hour will be given.
Teachers who meet the requirements will be awarded a certificate containing a recommendation for college credit, signed by the Commissioner of Education and by the Director of the University Extension Courses.
The course is of college grade, and any student who desires to be recommended for credit will be expected to devote practically six hours a week to home study and required reading.
This course will be followed by a series of three lectures, under other auspices to be announced later, as follows: "Teaching of International Affairs", by Miss H. C.
