Through extension work in Harrisburg, evening classes at the col- 
lege in Annville, and summer school, Lebanon Valley College has for 
many years enabled many students to obtain college courses and secure 
academic degrees while continuing their regular occupations. By a 
careful selection of courses and consultation with the heads of the de- 
partments of the college or the director of extension and evening classes, 
a student can meet the requirements of the college for a baccalaureate 
degree while earning a livelihood. 

All extension and evening courses are taught by full time members 
of the college faculty. The courses offered in extension and evening 
class work are so alternated from year to year that a student can read- 
ily secure those required for graduation. 


Lebanon Valley College is fully accredited by the Department of 
Public Instruction of Pennsylvania, the American Association of Col- 
leges, and Secondary Schools of the Middle Atlantic States and Mary- 
land, and the American Association of University Women. It is a 
member of the American Council on Education. 


The college is situated at Annville, twenty-one miles east of Har- 
risburg on the Benjamin Franklin Highway. 


Lebanon Valley College offers two courses of study leading to the 
Baccalaureate degree: 

(1) A course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts (A. B.) 

(2) A course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science (B. S.) 

The total number of credits required of candidates for these degrees, 
is in each case, 125 semester hours of academic credits and 4 in physical 
education. (Extension and evening class students are not required to 
have the work in physical education.) 

Candidates for degrees must also obtain a minimum of 130 quality 
points, computed as follows: for a grade A, 3 points for each credit 
hour; for a grade B, 2 points for each credit hour; for a grade of C, 1 
point for each credit hour. No quality credit will be given for a grade 
of D. 

As pai't of this total requirement, every candidate must present at 
least 24 semester hours in one department (to be known as the Major), 
and at least 18 semester hours in another department (to be known as 
his Minor). Majors in Education are required to take two Minors. Both 
Major and Minor must be selected not later than the beginning of the 
Junior year, the Minor to be suitably related to the Major, and chosen 
with the advice and approval of the Head of the Major department. 

The A. B. degree will be awarded to those fulfilling the require- 
ments for a Major in the following departments: Bible and New Testa- 
ment Greek, English, French, German, Greek, History, Latin, 
Mathematics (Arts option). Political and Social Science, Philosophy and 
Religion. The B. S. degree will be awarded to those fulfilling the 
requirements for a Major in the following departments: Biology, 
Chemistry, Mathematics (Science option). Physics, Business Administra- 
tion, Education, and Music Education, 


Certain courses embodying the fundamentals of a liberal education 
are required by all students. These courses, which vary slightly 
according to the degree sought, are as follows:

*Twelve semester hours of Foreign Language are required of all candidates 
for the A.B. degree ; six hours of this total must be from French 16 or Ger- 
man 16. 

tPre-Medical students who are majoring in either Biology or Chemistry may 
substitute an elective for Math. 46. 

For explanation of numbers used above see the College Bulletin. 


In addition to the General Requirements listed above some of the 
departments require students majoring therein to take certain additional 
courses in subjects closely related to the Major. 

Students outlining a course for a degree should communicate at 
once with the Head of the Department in which they intend to Major. 

Candidates for the Baccalaureate degree who desire to be admitted 
to advanced standing by virtue of work done in other institutions, should 
lose no time in having their credits evaluated by the Registrar, in order 
that they may be informed as to what requirements they must meet for 

Bachelor of Science with a major in Education. Teachers College 
credits from recognized institutions are allowed on the following basis: 
work of a professional character will be equated on the basis of semester 
hours. Graduates who have taken the full two years' normal course 
based upon four full years of high school work usually receive approxi- 
mately 60 semester hours, though each case is evaluated individually. 
A total of 126 hours of academic credits is required. For full information 
address the Department of Education, Lebanon Valley College. 


The Pennsylvania State Council of Education has approved the 
following regulations for the College Provisional Certificate. 

This certificate entitles the holder to teach for three years in any 
public high school of the Commonwealth the subjects indicated on its 
face, and to teach in the elementary field where the applicant is a 
holder of a certificate for teaching in this field or has completed an 
approved curriculum in preparation for teaching in such field. 

The applicant for this certificate must be a graduate of an approved 
college or university and must have successfully completed at least 
eighteen semester hours of work of college grade in education distributed 
as follows: 

Introduction to Teaching 3 semester hours 

Educational Psychology (General Psychology is a 

prerequisite ) ^ 3 semester hours

The practice teaching requirement may be met by taking Education 
136-A and Education 136-B. 


The college offers pre-medical, pre-legal, pre-theological courses 
to prepare students for entrance to schools of Medicine, Law, and The- 
ology. For students who wish to major in the field of economics in 
preparation for the business world, the college offers a course in Bus- 
iness Administration. Students interested in these fields should write 
to the Registrar for the College Bulletin. 


The college has a separate department, the Conservatory of Music, 
for those interested in Music. Students interested in this field should 
write either to the Director of the Conservatory of Music or the College 
Registrar for the bulletin of the Conservatory. 


As a prerequisite to the granting of degrees, colleges and univer- 
sities require that a student shall take approximately one-fourth of his 
or her work on the campus of the institution. Lebaaon Valley College 
requires that a candidate for a degree must have a minimum of 30 
remester hours work in regularly conducted classes on the college 
campus. This requirement may be met through attendance at evening 
and Saturday classes offered at the college. The college is easily ac- 
cessible from Harrisburg. Due to the excellent highways students from 
Harrisburg and vicinity may commute to the college in less than forty 
minutes time. 


A fee of one dollar will be charged for matriculation. In the case of 
students registered in both extension and evening courses only one ma- 
triculation fee is required. The tuition charge for Extension and Sat- 
urday and Evening Courses will be $8.00 for each semester hour of 
credit. A special tuition fee of $5.^0 per semester hour will be charged 
persons who desire to take any of the courses as auditor, without ex- 
amination and without credit. 

Fees for the first semester are due and payable on or before Oc- 
tober 15, and for the second semester on or before February 1.5. Re- 
mittances should be made to Lebanon Valley College and may be sent 
by mail to J. W. Esbenshade, Secretary of the Finance Committee. 


Credits will be issued to all students showing the courses attended, 
grades and number of semester hours. Most of the courses offer two 
semester hours' credit. In the case of courses offering three hours 
credit per semester, extra classes are required for the additional hour 


Special registration evenings for the extension classes in Harris- 
burg will be held in the Central High School Building, on Forester Street 
from 7:00-9:00 p. m. on Monday and Tuesday evenings, September 19th 
and 20th. At that time students interested in Extension classes may

indicating relationships. The principles of classification are learned by 
the identification of about one hundred and fifty species of plants rep- 
resented in the local spring flora. These studies are conducted in the
