From 1861 to 1865 the University of Pennsylvania consisted of these four faculties, whose professors are listed below:
- Department of Arts (College)
consisted of ten professors in the subjects of intellectual, moral and natural philosophy; the languages of French and German as well as Greek and Latin; English literature; chemistry; mathematics; and military drill. Three positions in American history, Italian, and chemistry (as applied to the arts) were unfilled.
- Medical Department
consisted of twelve professors in the subjects of anatomy, chemistry, materia medica, obstetrics, pharmacy, surgery, and the theory and practice of medicine. Three of these professors were emeritus.
- Law Department
consisted of three professors covering the subjects of constitutional, commercial, civil, and international law; of real estate, equity, and such practical matters as pleading and evidence.
- College of Agriculture, Mines, Arts, and Mechanic Arts
consisted of three professors in the subjects of civil engineering, mining, and geology, mineralogy and palaeontology. Chemistry, mathematics, natural philosophy, English literature and language, and fine arts were taught by professors with joint appointments in the College. Begun in 1852 with the first appointment of a Professor of Civil and Mining Engineering, this was still a new division of the University; six positions in architecture, botany, mechanics, metallurgy, practical and scientific agriculture had not yet been filled.
