Say, before the development of quantum mechanics and most of modern physics?

What were the requirements back then? Did students have more of certain things than what modern physics students now have? (e.g. did they study classical physics in a lot more depth?)

From what I heard, there was more weight on geometry, rigid body rotations and classical thermodynamics. I am sure that there are many more things which would look too specialized for a modern curriculum.
