GENERAL STATEMENT FROM time to time members of the Faculty of Lebanon Valley College have been called upon to conduct "extension courses" in various places, so as to meet the needs of such persons as found it impossible to attend the courses given within the college. The service developed very naturally, and almost unnoticed. The college is always willing and ready to extend its services where they are needed and appreciated. To those who have so loyally supported and encouraged the success of this movement the college is greatly indebted. It hopes to meet this obligation by employing its edu- cational facilities in a manner productive of the greatest service to those interested in educational advancement. Accordingly, the col- lege will be glad to receive requests from groups who desire courses other than these, and to arrange, whenever possible, to supply such instruction as may be desired. The courses offered are, for the most part, intended primarily for those engaged in teaching. However, all other qualified persons will be admitted to extension courses, and some courses are more or less definitely planned to meet the needs or interests of persons outside of the teaching group. All courses will be taught by members of the College * Faculty, and will be of college grade and receive credit as such. Inasmuch as Lebanon Valley College is an accredited institution, on the first list of colleges and universities, persons who complete these courses may safely assume that their credits will be honored wherever they may be presented. The credits earned in these courses will be counted by Lebanon Valley College towards its Baccalaureate degrees. CALENDAR Each class will meet for thirty sessions at the specified time each week from September to May, exclusive of Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter recesses. The first meeting of each group will be held in the week of September 28. REGISTRATION Registration may be made at the time and place of the first meet- ing of the classes. All those who are interested are invited to attend the first meeting of any class, at which time questions may be asked and the nature of the work more fully explained. 4 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION (a) For College Credit College credit will be given only to those who have fulfilled the College Entrance Requirements as described on pages 26-27 of the regular College Catalogue. (b) Without College Credit A limited number of persons whose preparation may not meet the requirements as set forth above may be admitted to courses at the discretion of the instructors. COURSES LEADING TO THE BACCALAUREATE DEGREES An effort is being made by the College to offer in the Extension Department and the Summer Session 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 cases where six semester hours are required, the departments will normally offer four hours in Extension work and a two hour supplementary course in Summer School. 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: ARRANGEMENTS OF COURSES OF STUDY Lebanon Valley College offers three 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.) 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. In the interim the following requirements will apply: 1926 — 129 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 EXTENSION SCHOOL BULLETIN 5 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 fulfilHng 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. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 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: A.B. B.S. B.S. in Ed. Bible 14, 54. Rible 14, 54. Bible 14, 54. EngHsh 12, 14, 26. English 12, 14, 26.

B. degree; six hours of this total must be from French 16 or German 16. t Latin is required of all students majoring in English, French, Greek or Latin. For explanation of numbers used above see the departmental announcements. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS 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 6 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE 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 still meet for graduation. THE MASTER'S DEGREE 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. PLACE AND TIME OF CLASSES In Harrisburg the classes will meet in the Technical High School. Lebanon classes will meet in the Harding Junior High School. Classes meeting in the college at Annville are specifically so noted. Classes will regularly meet for one two hour period each week, the time of meeting to be arranged by the instructor and students at the organization meeting of each course. WITHDRAWAL OF COURSES Any of the courses announced in this bulletin may be withdrawn in case the registration is not sufficient to justify the forming of a class. Ten registrations will be considered sufficient for courses to be given at Annville, and twenty registrations for courses to be given in the other places. SCHEDULE OF ORGANIZATION MEETINGS Harrisburg— -Technical High School Building, Sept. 28, 7:00 P. M. Lebanon— Harding Junior High School Building, Sept. 29, 7:00 P. M. EXPENSES A fee of $2.00 will be charged for matriculation and registration in the case of all who have not previously matriculated in the college. The tuition charge for extension courses will be $6.00 for each credit point, a point being a semester hour. For example, the charge for matriculation and registration in courses leading to eight points credit would be $50.00. This is approximately the regular fee for tuition in the college. Fees for the first term are due and payable EXTENSION SCHOOL BULLETIN 7 on or before October 12 and for the second term, on or before Feb- ruary 8. Remittances should be made to Lebanon Valley College, and may be sent by mail to Agent of Finance Committee. BIOLOGY Dr. Derickson The Department of Biology aims to offer in extension courses to teachers the courses in Biological Science required for graduation with the degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Edu- cation, or in the fulfillment of the requirements of a minor in Biology. The courses offered also constitute the first three courses required of those majoring in Biology. The courses include a course in General Biology, one in Botany and one in Zoology. Not all of the courses are offered in the same year. The course in General Biology was given in 1923-24. The course in Botany was given last year and the course in Zoology will be offered in 1925-26. While a course in General Biology will prove very helpful to those pursuing the courses in Botany and Zoology, the latter are so ar- ranged that they may be taken without the former. Each of the courses is divided into two parts. Part one consists of lectures, demonstrations and recitations. Part two consists of labora- tory and field work. The following will be offered this year: E-38. Zoology. Part One. Two hours. Throughout the year. Lectures, demonstrations and recitations. The object of the course is to give the student a broad, general knowledge of the animal kingdom. The lectures will give a general survey of the animal kingdom from the simplest to the most com- plex, giving consideration to structure, physiological processes, life history, ecological relationships and economic importance. Each animal studied will be viewed from the standpoint of its origin and constant comparison with others. The course, although inculcating the scientific habit of thought, will emphasize the cultural rather than the technical aspects of the subjects. Credit, 4 semester hours. Part Two. Two hours. Throughout the year. Laboratory and field work. Representatives of practically every class in the animal kingdom will be studied in the laboratory with reference to structure and Hfe history and in the field to ascertain their ecological relationships. In this work the student has the opportunity to get, by personal 8 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE observation, concrete ideas of the principles and generalizations dis- cussed in Part One. Methods of conducting field work, of collecting materials for laboratory and reserving same for museum or demonstration, the preparation of microscopic slides, etc., are included in this part of the course. Credit, 4 semester hours. The laboratory work is given only at the college laboratory at Annville, where every modern facility for conducting the work is provided. Each student is furnished with compound microscope, dissecting instruments, apparatus for experiments, note book and drawing materials, for which a laboratory fee of six dollars per semester is charged in addition to the tuition for the course. Field trips are made to several points of interest. Materials are available for those who desire to prepare specimens for use in teaching. CHEMISTRY Dr. Bender The college offers this year two lecture demonstration courses in chemistry. E-14. General Chemistry. Two hours. Throughout the year. An introduction to the study of chemistry, including a study of the ele- ments, their classification and properties, and a study of the important compounds of each element. During the course constant reference is made to manufacturing and industrial processes, and interpretation of the phenomenal material development of the present century is made in the light of the rapid increase in chemical knowledge. Each lecture will be illustrated by lecture experiments and the use of charts and industrial products. Credit, 4 semester hours. The laboratory work of this course can, if desired, be done on Saturdays in the College laboratories, for which an additional credit of four semester hours will be given. The course thus offered is equivalent to Course Chemistry 18 offered in the College. E-24. Orgajiic Chemistry. Two hours. Throughout the year. A study of the sources, classification and type reactions of organic materials, of food-stuffs and their relation to nutrition, dyes, pharma- ceuticals, explosives, coal tar intermediates, manufacturing processes and recent developments in this field of Chemistry.
