In 1904 Course IX was discontinued; however, in 1905 courses in general studies were reintroduced in the form of electives open primarily to students in their third and fourth years. In 1932 President Karl Compton set up a Division of Humanities with three departments: economics and social science, English and history, and modern languages, expanded to a School of Humanities and Social Studies in 1950.
Historical information about the Department of General Studies and the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences can be found at: http://shass.mit.edu/inside/history.
