Greek and Latin were required subjects as was metaphysics. Woolsey brought science studies to a level of prominence not before reached by developing courses of study in chemistry, astronomy, and mineralogy.

Prior to his assumption of the school presidency, he was ordained a Congregationalist minister. Woolsey taught Greek and history, but international law and political science were his primary focus. In 1860, he authored a treatise on international law titled Introduction to the Study of International Law, which became a common text in United States colleges.
