THE sixth Summer Session of Lebanon Valley College will be 
conducted both in Annville and in Harrisburg. Exercises in 
each subject will be held five times a week, from June 21 
to July 31, inclusive. All courses, except for some of the work in 
science, will be held in the morning. 

One Summer School will be held as usual on the campus at 
Annville, where the full college equipment will be placed at the 
disposal of summer students. 

A Summer School will also be conducted at Harrisburg for the 
convenience of teachers in this vicinity who wish to complete, by 
means of summer courses, the residence requirements towards their 
degrees. For this purpose the Edison Junior High School has been 
made available by the kindness of the Harrisburg School District. 


In order that the work may proceed with dispatch upon the open- 
ing of the term, it is urged that arrangements for registration be 
made by mail. Applications for admission and registration will be 
received by the Secretary up to and including Monday, June 21. 
Address, Annville, Pa. 

No registrations will be made and no changes in courses per- 
mitted after June 24. 


Certificates will be issued to all students showing the courses at- 
tended, grades and number of semester hours' credit. Courses taken 
during the Summer Session are credited towards the college degrees 
on the same basis as courses taken during the regular college year. 
Beginning with June, 1927, one hundred twenty-six semester hours 
will be required for the bachelor's degrees. Twenty-seven 
semester hours are required for the master's degree. The require- 
ment of one year's residence for a collegiate degree may be met by 
attendance upon not less than four Summer Sessions. For complete 
information concerning the requirements for degrees the candidate 
should refer to the college catalogue or address the Registrar. 


A registration fee of $1 will be charged each student. 
The tuition fee is $6.00 per semester hour credit. 
A laboratory fee is charged for Science Courses. 


The charge for board and room is $9 per week, $54 per term. 

The entire charge for registration, tuition, board and room for 
the term is therefore $67-$91. 

The fees are payable at the time of registration, as a condition 
of admission to classes. 


Each room in the Men's Dormitory is furnished with a cot, 
chiffonier, mattress, one chair and student table for each occupant. 
Students must furnish their own bedding, carpets, towels, napkins, 
soap and all other necessary furnishings. 

Each room in the Women's Dormitory is furnished with bed, 
mattress, chair, dresser and student table. All other desired furnish- 
ings must be supplied by the student. 

One 40-watt light is furnished for each occupant of a room. Any 
additional lights must be paid for by the student. 

The more desirable rooms will be reserved in the order of appli- 
cation. No fee is required. Address the Registrar promptly in order 
that the most attractive room available may be reserved for you. 



An effort is being made by the College to offer in the Summer- 
Session and the Extension Department all the General Requirements 
for the Baccalaureate degree. Most of these courses are announced 
for the present year, and the remainder will be made available at 
an early date. In courses where six semester hours are required, 
the departments will normally offer two hours in Summer School 
and four hours in a Supplementary Extension Course. The 
residence requirement of one year may be met by attendance at 
Summer School. In this way the Baccalaureate degree will be 
made available to those who are not able to attend the regular 
annual College sessions. 

For the convenience of those working towards a degree, a full 
statement of the requirements is printed below: 



Lebanon Valley College offers four 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.) 

(3) A course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Edu- 
cation (B.S. in Ed.) 

(4) A course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Economics (B.S. in Econ.) 

The total number of credits required of candidates for these 
degrees is the same in each case, and will in 1927 and thereafter 
be 126 semester hours. 

As part of this total requirement, every candidate must present 
at least 24 semester hours in one department (to be known as his 
Major), and at least 16 semester hours in another department (to 
be known as his Minor). 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- 
ment for a Major in the following departments: Bible and New 
Testament 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 require- 
ments for a Major in the following departments: Biology, Chem- 
istry, Mathematics (Science option), Physics. 

The B.S. in Ed. degree will be awarded to those fulfilling the 
requirements for a Major in Education, but in this case two Minors 
of not less than 16 semester hours each must be presented. 

The B.S. in Econ. degree will be awarded to those fulfilling the 
requirements for a Major in Business and Business Administration. 


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

For explanation of numbers used above see the departmental announcements. 


In addition to the General Requirements listed above, some of the 
departments require students majoring therein to take certain addi- 
tional 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 

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 still meet for graduation. 


Some of the courses offered in the Extension Department may 
be taken for credit towards a Master's degree, provided arrangements 
are made in advance with the instructor. Some extra work will be 
required, such as additional reading, reports, experiments, etc. The 
complete regulations governing graduate work for the degrees of 
A.M. and M.S. may be obtained upon application to the Registrar 
of the College. 


In order to give students the benefit of calls that are received for 
teachers and to render greater assistance in finding employment, 


the College provides for an Appointment Bureau to keep on file 
records of students with their credentials for those who desire it. 
For registration with the bureau a fee of one dollar is charged. 

The Appointment Bureau of the College co-operates with the 
Placement Service, Teachers' Bureau, of the Department of Public 
Instruction, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, thus offering additional fa- 
cilities for the placement of graduates of this institution. 

Bachelor of Science in Education. Lebanon Valley College grants 
the degree Bachelor of Science in Education. Normal school credits 
from recognized institutions will be allowed towards this degree 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 approximately 60 semester hours, 
though each case is evaluated individually for credit towards the 
degree Bachelor of Science in Education. A total of 126 hours of 
credit is required for the degree. For full information, address the 
Department of Education, Lebanon Valley College. 


The State Council of Education has made provision for two kinds 
of certificates for elementary school teachers, viz.: partial and stand- 
ard certificates. The first consists of two kinds — elementary and 
secondary. Standard certificates are also of two kinds— temporary 
and. permanent. 

For high school teachers there are likewise two kinds of certifi- 
cates, viz: provisional and permanent. The first may be secured 
after graduation from an approved college or university and having 
successfully completed at least eighteen semester hours of work 
of college grade in education and psychology. 

Full particulars relative to the several certificates may be secured 
by addressing the Placement Service, Teachers' Bureau, of the. 
Department of Public Instruction, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania or the 
Head of the Department of Education, Lebanon Valley College.

If enough men are interested to warrant it, Coach E. E. Mylin, 
of Lebanon Valley College, will be available to give the course listed 
below at our Summer School. The course is designed to instruct 
men who desire expert and practical knowledge of the best methods 
of coaching the most popular sports. Many men realize that they 
require more knowledge of certain fields of coaching. Many men 
enter coaching as an after-thought after training to become teachers, 
lawyers, business men and so on. Unless they were all-round ath- 
letes their athletic knowledge chiefly related to one sport and even 
in that their training was often limited. Perhaps the football coach 
was a half back and knew the technique of that position but paid no 
attention to the play of the linemen and ends. Again, men who 
have played one- sport are often called upon to coach another in 
which they have had no experience or training and they realize the 
need of specialized training. 


This course is planned primarily for those who are coaching or 
those who intend to teach and coach. For further particulars write 
to E. E. Mylin, Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Pa.
