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. It hopes to meet this obligation by employing its educational facilities in a manner productive of the greatest service to those interested in educational advancement. Accordingly, the college will be glad to receive requests from groups who desire courses other than these, and to arrange, whenever pos- sible, 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. 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. 6 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE 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 is 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.

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 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 8 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE 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.

General Introduction to the English Bible. Two hours. Throughout the year. The purpose of this course is to acquaint the student with the history of the Jewish people and a comprehensive survey of the literature of the Bible. 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 Zoology was given last year and the course in Botany will be offered in 1926-27. 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-28. Botany. 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 plant kingdom. The lectures will give a general survey of the plant kingdom from the simplest to "the most com- plex, giving consideration to structure, physiological processes, life history, ecological relationships and economic importance. Each plant studied will be viewed from the standpoint of its origin and constant comparisons made 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 plant kingdom will be studied in the laboratory with reference to structure and 10 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE life history and in the field to ascertain their ecological relationships. In this work the student has the opportunity to get, by personal observation, concrete ideas of the principles and generalizations dis- cussed in Part One. Methods of conducting field work, of collecting materials for laboratory and preserving 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. Biological Problems. Two hours. Throughout the year. Practical biological problems adapted to the needs of the indi- vidual student will be assigned to a limited number of students possessing the necessary preliminary training. This course is intended for teachers of Biology or those engaged in other biological work who are majoring in Biology for either Bachelors or Masters degrees.
