THE MISSION OF THE COLLEGE 

Lebanon Valley is a small, private, liberal arts college. Its mission arises directly from 
its historical traditions and a relationship with the United Methodist Church. 

The College's aim is to enable our students to become people of broad vision, capable 
of making informed decisions, and prepared for a life of service to others. To that end, we 
seek to provide an education that helps students acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes 
and values necessary to live and work in a changing, diverse and fragile world. 

Through both curricular and co-curricular activities, we endeavor to acquaint our stu- 
dents with humanity's most significant ideas and accomplishments, to develop their abil- 
ities to think logically and communicate clearly, to give them practice in precise analysis 
and effective performance, and to enhance their sensitivity to and appreciation of differ- 
ences among human beings. 

Lebanon Valley College aspires to pursue this mission within a community in which car- 
ing and concern for others is a core value. We value strong and nurturing faculty interacting 
closely with students; encourage individual student development; and affirm the inter- 
relatedness of liberal learning and the ideal of vocation. We regard the cultivation of 
wisdom that is the capacity of judging rightly in matters of life and conduct, and a lifelong 
love of learning as the ultimate reward of the educational experience. 



The College motto is, ''You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. " 

(John 8:32)

Continuing Education 

Students may enroll part time for undergraduate study at Lebanon Valley College 
through the Office of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education. Students are consid- 
ered part time if they are enrolled in 0-1 1 credit hours per semester. 

Continuing Education offers credit programs on four levels: certificate, associate, 
baccalaureate and professional certificates. Certificates are starter programs that 
approximate the beginning of a four-year college experience, ideal springboards from 
which to go on for an associate's or bachelor's degree. Professional certificate programs 
are intended for persons who have already been awarded a bachelor's degree in one dis- 
cipline and desire to study another discipline in some depth. 

A second bachelor's degree may be awarded to adult students who already have received 
a bachelor of arts or sciences from Lebanon Valley or another regionally accredited college 
or university. In such cases, students must only complete the major requirements for the 
second degree or a minimum of 30 credits, whichever is greater. 

Part-time students enrolled through Continuing Education may register for courses 
offered during the day, evening, Saturday and summer sessions on the main campus in 
Annville. To obtain copies of course schedules or to get detailed information on all aca- 
demic programs for part-time students, call 717-867-6213 or toll free at 877-877-0423 
or write the Office of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education, Lebanon Valley 
College, Annville, PA 17003-1400. Information is also available through the LVC web- 
site: www.Ivc.edu/ce. 

A candidate for admission to any of Lebanon Valley College's Continuing Education 
certificate or degree programs must submit a completed application form with the 
required application fee. An official high school transcript is required if students have 
fewer than 24 semester hours of transferable college credits. Students planning to transfer 
to Lebanon Valley must submit official transcripts of all completed college or university 
courses. Official transcripts relating to military or business courses also may be evaluat- 
ed for possible transfer credit. Although candidates may begin taking classes before they 
have been accepted, they must speak with an advisor before registering for courses. To 
arrange an admission interview with an advisor, call 717-867-6213 in Annville or toll free 
at 877-877-0423. Decisions on all part-time student applications usually are made within 
one month after the last required transcript is received.

UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC 
REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES 

Attendance at Lebanon Valley College is a privilege, not a right. To provide the necessary 
atmosphere in which teaching and learning can occur, the College expects that the conduct 
of all campus citizens will conform to accepted standards. The College has the right to 
require the withdrawal of any student whose actions are inimical to the purposes of the 
institution. The following academic regulations are announcements and do not constitute a 
contract between the student and the College. The College reserves the right to change these 
regulations and procedures as it deems necessary for the accomplishment of its purposes, but 
wherever possible, a student will proceed to graduation under the regulations in effect at the 
time of his or her entrance at the College. 

Degrees 

Baccalaureate Degrees 

Lebanon Valley College confers five baccalaureate degrees. Bachelor of Arts for students 
completing requirements in the following major programs: American studies. Art and Art 
History, economics, English, French, German, historical communications, history,

office of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education and who have pursued the degree 
through part-time study. Students may earn an Associate of Science degree in accounting, 
general studies and business administration or an Associate of Arts degree in general studies. 

Privacy of Student Records 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, also known as the Buckley 
Amendment, helps protect the privacy of student records. The Act provides for the right 
to inspect and review educational records, to seek to amend those records, and to limit 
disclosure of information from the records. The Act applies to all institutions that are the 
recipients of federal funding. 

Annually, Lebanon Valley College informs students of the Family Educational Rights 
and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This Act, with which the institution intends to 
comply fully, was designated to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the 
right of students to inspect and review their education records, and to pro\ ide guidelines for 
the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and fomial healings. 

Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 7 



Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights 
and Privacy Act Office (FERPA) concerning alleged failures by the institution to com- 
ply with the act. 

Local policy explains in detail the procedures to be used by the institution for compliance 
with the provisions of the Act. Copies of the policy can be found in the following offices: 
Office of the Registrar, Office of Student Services, and Office of the Dean of the Faculty. 
The policy is also printed in the Faculty Advising Handbook. The offices mentioned also 
maintain a Directory of Records that lists all education records maintained on students by 
this institution. 

Questions concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act may be referred 
to the Registrar's Office. 

Credit Hours 

A credit hour is the unit to measure academic progress. Each course has a credit des- 
ignation approximately equal to the number of hours to be spent in class each week. A 
course requiring three hours of class attendance each week will carry 3 credit hours. 
Credit for laboratories is generally awarded at one half the regular rate. 

Application for Graduation 

As a student nears completion of the degree requirements, the student must file an 
application for the degree and a graduation plan with the Registrar's Office. Graduation 
application deadlines and the semester Course List and Registration Schedule are avail- 
able in that office. This application process provides the student with a timely opportu- 
nity to review his or her degree requirements and to plan or change the student's course 
schedule to ensure completion of all requirements. 

The student must complete an Application for the Degree and a Graduation Plan, meet with 
his or her advisor, obtain all required signatures for graduation, including major and minor 
requirements, and dehver the forms to the Registrar's Office in the Humanities Building. 

Graduation Requirements 

Candidates for a baccalaureate degree shall complete successfully 120 credit hours, 
including the requirements for the general education program (see page 19) and the 
requirements for majors and minors as appropriate. Credit hours are accumulated in three 
separate categories: general education requirements, major requirements, and electives. 

The general education program is that part of the curriculum shared by all students 
in all majors. The required courses reflect 54-56 credit hours. The major programs each 
require at least 24 credit hours of course work. Electives are those courses selected by 
the student that reflect neither major nor general education requirements. 

In addition, candidates shall complete successfully two units of physical education 
selected from a list of approved activities. Students shall not satisfy the physical education 
requirement by taking the same activity unit twice. Students shall have a maximum of one 
physical education unit waived for successful completion of any of the following: one season 
of a varsity sport, one semester of marching band, or one semester of military science. 
Continuing education students are exempt from the physical education requirement. 

Candidates for the bachelor's degree must also take in residence 30 credit hours of the 36 
taken immediately prior to graduation. Course work taken in all of the College's programs 
qualifies as work done in residence. 

Candidates for an associate's degree must accumulate at least 60 credit hours including 
the course work appropriate to their major program. Fifteen of the last 18 credit hours 

8 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 2005-2006 Catalog 



toward the degree must be taken in residence. Coursework taken in all of the College's 
programs qualifies as work done in residence. 

Candidates for a degree must obtain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00 
and a major grade point average of at least 2.00. 

Students who have 1 1 or fewer credits remaining to complete the degree may participate 
in the graduation ceremony. 

Advising Program 

Each student has a faculty advisor whose role is to counsel about registration proce- 
dures, course selections, academic requirements, and regulations. The student is strongly 
encouraged to obtain the advisor's counsel and approval before registration, withdrawal, 
election of pass/fail option, and/or change in credit/audit status. 

Arrangement of Schedules 

Each student arranges a semester program of courses in consultation with his or her 
faculty advisor. Students already in attendance do this during registration periods. New 
students accomplish this on orientation days. 

Limit of Hours 

To be classified as full time, a student must take at least 12 credit hours in a semester. 
Seventeen credit hours is the maximum permitted without approval from the student's 
advisor and permission of the registrar. To be permitted to take more than 17 credits, the 
student should have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, or be a senior. 
Audited courses are counted in determining the course load, but music organizations are 
not. Students shall pay the prevailing tuition rate for each credit hour beyond 17 (not 
counting music organizations). 

Class Standing 

Students are classified academically at the beginning of each year. Membership in the 
sophomore, junior or senior classes is granted to students who have earned a minimum of 
28, 56 or 84 credit hours respectively. 

Satisfactory Academic Progress 

Satisfactory academic progress toward a degree as a full-time student is defined as 
completion of 24 or more credits per academic year while maintaining a cumulative grade 
point average of 1 .6 ( 1-27 credits), 1 .7 (28-55 credits). 1.8 (56-83 credits), 1 .9 (84 or more). 
A 2.0 grade point average is required for completion of the baccalaureate degree. It is also 
necessary for full-time students to complete at least 24 credits per academic year in order 
to maintain eligibility for federal, state and institutional financial aid. 

Transfer Credit 

A student applying for advanced standing after having attended another accredited 
institution shall send an official transcript to the dean of admission. If requested, the student 
must provide copies of the appropriate catalogs for the years of attendance at the other 
institution or institutions. 

Credits are accepted for transfer provided the grades are C- (1.67) or better and the 
work is equivalent or similar to work offered at Lebanon Valley College. Grades thus 
transferred count for credit hours only, not for quality points. 

Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 9 



A candidate for admission holding an associate degree from a regionally accredited 
college can be admitted with full acceptance of course work at the previously attended 
institution. However, course work in the major field for which the applicant has received 
a D shall not be counted toward fulfilling the major requirement. 

Because Lebanon Valley College is a liberal arts institution, consideration of full 
acceptance of the associate degree will be granted with the understanding that the candidate 
has followed a basic course of study compatible with the curriculum and academic programs 
of the College and has been enrolled in a transfer program. A total of 60 credits will be 
accepted for an associate degree and 57 credits for a diploma program. A maximum of 90 
credit hours will be accepted toward a baccalaureate degree. 

In most instances the applicant may be expected to complete the baccalaureate 
degree within two years. However, when the requirements of a particular major field or 
the nature of the previous study demand additional work beyond two years, the applicant 
will normally be notified at the time of admission. 

Students transferring to Lebanon Valley College in order to complete work on a bac- 
calaureate degree will normally be expected to pass at least one 3-hour course in their 
intended major for each semester they spend at the college. "Semester" shall normally 
be defined as 15 credit hours. Beyond this minimum requirement, departments may 
require additional courses if they so desire. 

Lebanon Valley College students enrolled for a degree may not carry courses concurrently 
at any other institution without prior consent of their advisors and the registrar. Students who 
desire to study away from campus for summer study must obtain prior approval from their 
advisors and the registrar. 

Discontinuance of Courses 

The College reserves the right to withdraw or discontinue any course. 

Registration and Preregistration 

Students are required to register for courses on designated days of each semester. 
Preference is given to upper-class students in the preregistration process to ensure registration 
in courses required for their major fields of study. Students who register later than the 
designated times shall be charged a fee. Students desiring to register later than one week after 
the opening of the semester will be admitted only by special permission of the registrar. 

On entering Lebanon Valley College students, indicate that they are open or that they 
have a particular intended major. Students may make a formal declaration of major during 
the second semester of their freshmen year and must make a formal declaration by the 
time they have completed 60 credit hours. 

Change of Registration 

Change of registration, including pass/fail elections, changes of course hours credit, 
changes from credit to audit and vice versa, must be approved by signature of the advisor. 
In most instances, registration for a course shall not be permitted after the course has been 
in session for one full week. With the permission of the advisor, a student may withdraw 
from a course during the first 10 weeks of the semester. However, first semester freshmen 
may withdraw from a course at any time through the last day of semester classes with 
permission of the advisor. A fee is charged for every change of course made at the student's 
request after Add/Drop Day. 



1 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 2005-2006 Catalog 



Auditing Courses 

Students may register to audit courses with the approval of their academic advisor. 
Audited courses are counted in considering the course load relative to the limit of hours 
that may result in an overload charge. No grade or credit is given for an audited course, 
but the registrar will record the audit on the transcript if the student attends regularly. A 
change of registration from credit to audit or from audit to credit must be accomplished 
by the end of the tenth week of semester classes. 

Pass/Fail 

After attaining sophomore standing (28 credit hours), a student may elect to take up to 
two courses per semester and one per summer session on a pass/fail basis; however, only 
six such courses can be counted toward graduation requirements. No courses elected by 
students to be taken pass/fail may be used to meet the requirements of the general educa- 
tion program or other programs, the major(s), the minor(s) or secondary education certi- 
fication. A student may select or cancel a pass/fail registration any time during the first 10 
weeks of a semester. Passing with honors will be designated by the grade PH indicating 
that a grade of B+ or higher was earned. If a student does not pass the course, the student 
will receive an F on the transcript. See page 14 for grading systems. 

Repetition of Courses 

A student may repeat as often as desired, for a higher grade, a previously taken course, 
subject to the following provisions: the course must have been taken in courses staffed by 
the College, the course has to be retaken at Lebanon Valley College, and the semester cred- 
it hours are given only one time. The higher grade received each fime taken is computed 
in the semester grade point average. Each semester grade report will show hours credit 
each time passed, but the total hours toward a degree will be equal only to the semester 
hours credit for the course. For a course previously passed P/F. the grade received in the 
subsequent registration for regular grade is the "higher grade." Each grade received 
remains on the permanent record and a notation is made thereon that the course has been 
repeated. 

Concurrent Courses 

A student enrolled for a degree at Lebanon Valley College may not carry courses con- 
currently at any other institution without prior consent of his or her advisor and the registrar. 

External Summer Courses 

A student registered at Lebanon Valley College may not obtain credit for the courses 
taken during the summer at another college unless such courses have prior approval of his 
or her advisor and the registrar. 

Attendance Policy 

Each student is responsible for knowing and meeting all requirements for each course, 
including regular class attendance. At the opening of each semester, the instructors shall 
clearly inform students of class attendance regulations. Violations of those regulations 
shall make the student liable to receive a grade of F in the course. 

Excused absences do not absolve students from the necessity of fulfilling all course 
requirements. 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1 1 



In-Absentia 

The College treats students in domestic or foreign study programs as students-in- 
absentia. Any student who studies for a semester or academic year at another institution 
with the intent of returning to the College is considered a matriculated student. A student 
desiring in-absentia status should complete the form in the registrar's office and secure the 
approval of the advisor, the registrar and the director of study abroad and domestic 
programs. Students will receive information on registration and room sign-up after they 
notify the registrar of their address abroad or in the United States. 

Leave of Absence 

For reasons of health or in other compelling circumstances, students may request a 
voluntary leave from the College for one or two semesters. A student desiring such a leave 
should complete the form available from the registrar and secure the approval of the 
associate dean of the faculty. Students on leave are regarded as continuing students and 
retain their status for registration and room sign-up, if available. Students on leave will 
receive information on those procedures and will be asked to verify their return. The 
College reserves the right to require a leave of absence for medical reasons at any time it 
is deemed reasonably necessary to protect the student, other students, members of the 
College community, or the interests of the College itself. Before a student returns from a 
medical leave of absence, a clearance interview with one of the counseling psychologists, 
the dean of students, or the associate dean of the faculty — as well as additional documen- 
tation — may be required. 

Withdrawal from College and Readmission 

To withdraw from the College, a student must complete an official withdrawal form 
obtained from the registrar. Continuing education students must complete an official with- 
drawal form obtained from the director of continuing education. Readmission of a student 
requires written permission from the associate dean of the faculty. 

Second Bachelor's Degrees 

A person who has earned a bachelor's degree from Lebanon Valley College or another 
accredited college or university may earn a second bachelor's degree by meeting the fol- 
lowing requirements: 

1 . A minimum of 30 additional undergraduate credits must be completed successfully at 
Lebanon Valley. 

2. All graduation requirements for the major of the second degree must be met 
satisfactorily. 

3. Course work completed successfully as part of the first degree program may be used 
to satisfy the graduation requirements of the second major. 

4. No course already taken in the first degree program may be repeated in the second 
degree program. 

5. No more than three credits from student teaching (SED 440, ELM 440 and MED 441) 
may be counted toward a second degree. 

6. Graduates from other accredited colleges or universities shall not be required to meet 
any general education requirements of Lebanon Valley College. 

7. No courses in the second degree program may be met satisfactorily through such non- 
traditional means as challenge examinations, CLEP, or credit for life experience. 

8. No more than three credits from internships may be counted toward a second degree. 

9. No courses in the second degree program may be taken pass/fail. 

1 2 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 2005-2006 Catalog 



Undergraduate Nontraditional Credit 

Lebanon Valley College recognizes the ability of highly motivated students to master 
specific areas of study on their own initiative and provides programs to allow these students 
the opportunity to gain credit. Any matriculated student may earn a maximum of 30 credits 
toward a bachelor's degree or a maximum of 15 credits toward an associate's degree 
through nontraditional means (challenge exams, advanced placement, CLEP, and credit 
for life experience). All nontraditional means of examination are graded satisfactory (Sj 
or unsatisfactory (U). An unsatisfactory grade on any nontraditional examination will not 
be recorded on the permanent record. 

Challenge Exam Policy 

Many LVC courses can be challenged for credit by examination. Full-time students 
should request challenge examinations through their academic advisors. Part-time students 
and those students enrolled through continuing education should make application for 
challenge exams through the continuing education office. All requests must be approved 
by the registrar and the chairperson of the department in which the course is listed. 

Challenge exams are considered comprehensive examinations in the subject area. The 
grading criteria for challenge exams will be determined by each department. The exact 
nature of the examination will be determined by the faculty member and chairperson of 
the department involved and may include any means of evaluation normally employed by 
the department. There is a fee for preparation and grading of each challenge exam, and it 
is charged without regard to the test results. 

Challenge exams may not be taken by students who have received any grade in a 
course equivalent to or more advanced than the course for which the student is requesting 
credit by examination. Challenge exams may not be used for the purpose of acquiring 
credit for a course previously failed. Practicums, internships, seminars, research courses, 
independent study, writing-intensive courses, and courses with laboratory components are 
normally not subject to credit by examination. Individual departments may have additional 
criteria regarding challenge exams. Consult the chairperson of the department in which 
the course is listed for specific information. 

Advanced Placement Policy 

Advanced placement with credit in appropriate courses will be granted to entering 
students who make scores of 4 or 5 on College Board Advanced Placement examinations. 
The official Advanced Placement College Grade Report must be submitted by the student 
for evaluation by the registrar. 

Advanced Placement without credit may be granted on the basis of the Achievement Tests 
of the College Board examinations or such other proficiency tests as may be determined 
appropriate by the registrar and by the chairperson of the department. 

CLEP (College Level Examination Program) Policy 

Credit shall be granted to those students who score well on CLEP examinations that are 
approved by the College. To receive credit, a student must score above the 50th percentile on 
the objective section and above a C, as determined by the appropriate academic department 
for general and subject examinations. The English composition essay is required, w ith a 
minimum score of 64 and at the 80th percentile for this CLEP examination. 

A maximum of six credits shall be awarded for each examination: of these credits, only 
three may be applied to the general education requirements in the appropriate area. Credit 
shall be granted only to students who have matriculated at Lebanon Valley College.

Normally, requests for CLEP credit must be approved by the registrar before the student 
has completed 30 credits. 

Credit for Life Experience Policy 

Lebanon Valley College provides for the awarding of undergraduate academic credit 
for knowledge acquired through nonacademic experience in subjects in the College cur- 
riculum. The experience should have a direct relation to the material taught in a course in 
the College curriculum and should extend over a sufficient period to provide substantive 
knowledge in the relevant area. Matriculated students who believe they qualify for such 
credit may petition the appropriate department through their academic advisors. Students 
enrolled in the continuing education program must petition through the continuing educa- 
tion office. This petition must: 

( 1 ) detail the relevant experience in question 

(2) provide appropriate supporting evidence 

(3) note the equivalent College course by department and number 

(4) state the number of credit hours sought. 

The appropriate department will consult with the academic advisor or the continuing 
education office to determine the best means (interview, examination, portfolio, etc.) for 
evaluating the experience. 

Approval of experiential credit for full-time students must be made in writing over the 
signatures of the academic advisor, the appropriate department chair, and the 
associate dean of the faculty. Approval of experiential credit for students enrolled through 
the continuing education program must be made in writing over the signatures of the 
director of graduate studies and continuing education, the appropriate department chair, 
and the associate dean of the faculty. 

Experiential credit cannot exceed 6 credit hours in one academic year and cannot 
exceed a maximum of 12 credit hours in the degree program. 

International Baccalaureate Program 

Credit for appropriate courses will be granted to entering students who achieve scores 
of 5, 6 or 7 on International Baccalaureate individual subject examinations. The official 
International Baccalaureate transcript must be presented by the student for evaluation by 
the registrar. 

Grading Systems and Grade Point Averages 

Student work is graded A (excellent), B (good), C (satisfactory), D (requirements and 
standards met a minimum level), F (course requirements not met). For each credit hour in 
a course, students receive the following quality points: 



A 


4.00 


A- 


3.67 


B+ 


3.33 


B 


3.00 


B- 


2.67 


C+ 


2.33 



C 


2.00 


C- 


1.67 


D+ 


1.33 


D 


1.00 


D- 


.67 


F 


.00 



F carries no credit or quality points, but grades of F are used in calculating the grade 
point averages. The cumulative grade point average is calculated by dividing the quality 
points by the credit hours completed. 

Candidates for a degree must obtain a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 and a 
major grade point average of 2.00. 

14 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 2005-2006 Catalog 



Continuing education degree candidates admitted before July 1, 1989, must meet 
graduation requirements by earning a cumulative grade point average of 1 .75. All students 
and continuing education candidates admitted after July 1, 1989, must meet graduation 
requirements by earning a grade point average of 2.00. All students must have a 2.00 
grade point average in their major, any second major, and any minor. 

A student may not take a course that has a prerequisite course he or she has failed. 

In addition to the above grades, the symbols I and W are used. I indicates that the work 
is incomplete (certain required work postponed by the student for substantial reason with the 
prior consent of the instructor) but otherwise satisfactory. This work must be completed 
within the first eight weeks of the next semester, or the I will be changed to an F. Appeals 
for an extension of time must be presented to the registrar by the first week of the next 
semester. W indicates withdrawal from a course through the tenth week of semester classes, 
except for first-semester freshmen who may withdraw through the last day of the semester. 
For physical education, a grade of either S (satisfactory) or U (unsatisfactory) is recorded. 

Once a grade has been recorded it may not be changed without the approval of the 
instructor and the registrar. Students who feel the grade may be inaccurate should contact 
the instructor at once, but in no case later than the end of the semester following the course 
in question. 

Academic and Graduation Honors 

The Dean 5 List 

Students achieving a 3.40 or higher grade point average while carrying at least 12 credit 
hours for grade shall be named to the Dean's List at the end of each semester. 

Graduation Honors 

After completing a minimum of 60 calculated credit hours of residence work, a student 
may qualify for graduation honors. The honors to be conferred are summa cum laiide for 
grade point averages of 3.75-4.0, magna cum laude for grade point averages of 3.60-3.74. 
and cum laude for grade point averages of 3.40-3.59. 

Departmental Honors 

All major programs provide the opportunity for departmental honors work during the 
junior and senior years. For specific information, interested students should contact the 
appropriate department chairperson. The minimal requirements for departmental honors are 
a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, both at the time of application and at the time of gradua- 
tion; a written thesis; an oral presentation; and approval by a majority vote of the full-time 
members of the department. This project is undertaken on a subject of the student's own 
choosing under the supervision of a faculty advisor. Opportunity also exists to do creative 
work. A maximum of 9 hours credit may be earned in departmental honors. 

Phi Alpha Epsilon 

Students graduating with grade point averages of 3.50 or higher are eligible for induction 
into Phi Alpha Epsilon, provided they have earned a minimum of 60 credit hours of residence 
work. 

Academic Honesty 

Lebanon Valley College expects its students to uphold the principles of academic hon- 
esty. Violations of these principles will not be tolerated. Students shall neither hinder nor 
unfairly assist the efforts of other students to complete their work. All individual \\ ork that 
a student produces and submits as a course assignment must be the student's own. 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1 5 



Cheating and plagiarism are acts of academic dishonesty. Cheating is an act that 
deceives or defrauds. It includes, but is not Hmited to, looking at another's exam or quiz, 
using unauthorized materials during an exam or quiz, colluding on assignments without 
the permission or knowledge of the instructor, and furnishing false information for the 
purpose of receiving special consideration, such as postponement of an exam, essay, quiz, 
or deadline of an oral presentation. 

Plagiarism is the act of submitting as one's own the work (the words, ideas, images, or 
compositions) of another person or persons without accurate attribution. Plagiarism can 
manifest itself in various ways: it can arise from sloppy, innaccurate note-taking; it can 
emerge as the incomplete or incompetent citation of resources; it can take the form of the 
wholesale submission of another person's work as one's own, whether from an online, 
oral or printed source. The seriousness of an instance of plagiarism — its moral character 
as an act of academic dishonesty — normally depends upon the extent to which a student 
intends to deceive and mislead the reader as to the authorship of the work in question. 
Initially, the instructor will make this determination. 

Once academically dishonest work has been submitted, the instructor shall report the 
suspected incidence to the associate dean of the faculty. At the moment the work has been 
submitted, the student involved forfeits the right to withdraw from the course or to change 
his or her course status in any way. The College's expectations and the measures it will 
apply to support and enforce those expectations are outlined below. 

For the first offense of academic dishonesty, the faculty member has the option of 
implementing whatever grade-related penalty he or she deems appropriate, up to and 
including failure in the course. The associate dean of the faculty shall send the student a 
letter of warning, explaining the policy regarding further offenses and the appeal process. 

For the second formally established offense of academic dishonesty, failure in the 
course is mandatory; the associate dean of the faculty shall so inform the faculty mem- 
ber(s) involved. Additionally, the associate dean of the faculty has the authority to take 
further action against the student, up to and including expulsion from the College. 

For the third formally established offense of academic dishonesty, failure in the course 
and expulsion from the College are mandatory. 

The associate dean of the faculty has the authority to determine whether actions or rea- 
sonable suspicions of actions by a student constitute "offenses of academic dishonesty" as 
described above. 

Information related to offenses of academic dishonesty must be passed by the faculty 
member to the associate dean of the faculty who shall retain the information for as long 
as the student involved is enrolled at the College. Information and evidence concerning 
academic dishonesty are the property of the College. Once the student has graduated from 
the College, the associate dean of the faculty will destroy these records. 

All actions against a student for academic dishonesty may be appealed by the student 
being accused. A written appeal must be presented to the associate dean of the faculty no 
later than the official date that mid-term grades are due the semester following the 
semester in which the action was taken against the student. The dean of the faculty will 
serve as final arbiter. 



16 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 2005-2006 Catalog 



Academic Probation and Suspension 

At the conclusion of each semester, the Dean's Advisory Council meets to review the 
academic performance of all undergraduate students. The members of the council are the 
vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, the vice president for enroll- 
ment and student services, the dean of student services, and the registrar. 

To maintain themselves in good academic standing at the College, students must 
achieve minimum cumulative grade point averages appropriate to progress toward their 
degree, and they must complete coursework at a regular and sustained pace. Minimum 
cumulative GPAs are as follows: 

Semester Hours Completed Required Cumulative GPA 
1-27 1.60 

28-55 1.70 

56-83 1.80 

84 or more 1 .90 

At the conclusion of each semester, the College examines students' academic records. 
Students who have not achieved the above minimum grade point averages will be given an 
Academic Warning, placed on Probation, or Academically Suspended from the College. 

Academic Warning. The first time students fall below the required cumulative GPA 
as listed above, they will be given Academic Warning. Academic Warning constitutes a 
formal notification that a student's academic performance is weak and that he or she needs 
to devote increased attention to academic work. Students receiving Academic Warning are 
cautioned that unless they achieve an acceptable cumulative grade point average, they will 
be placed on Probation and thereby lose the privilege of participating in extracurricular 
activities (including such activities as intercollegiate sports, student government, campus 
media, student clubs, and Greek and service organizations). 

Probation. Students who fall a second time below the required cumulative GPA 
(whether in consecutive or nonconsecutive semesters) will be placed on Probation. A student 
on Probation will not be permitted to take part in extracurricular activities. 

Final Probation. Students who fall a third time below the required cumulative GPA 
(whether in consecutive or nonconsecutive semesters) will be placed on Final Probation. A 
student on Final Probation will not be permitted to take part in extracurricular activities, and 
the student will be informed that unless the student restores himself or herself to good 
academic standing and maintains that status, the student will be suspended from the College. 

Academic Suspension. Students will be suspended academically from the College 
when (1) they fall a fourth time below the required cumulative GPA (whether in consec- 
utive or nonconsecutive semesters); (2) they fail to achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 
0.75 at the conclusion of any semester; (3) they have not earned by the conclusion of the 
second and subsequent semesters of full-time enrollment a total of at least 6 credit hours 
of coursework for each semester completed. Students suspended will not be permitted to 
return for at least the full subsequent semester (fall or spring). To request reinstatement, 
students must submit a written petition to the associate dean of the faculty. A suspended 
student who returns to the College and who is suspended again for academic reasons will 
be regarded as permanently separated from the College. 

Upon reinstatement to the college, a student will have two semesters to bring up his or 
her cumulative GPA to the minimum required for good academic standing at the College. 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1 7 



Reinstated students may participate in extracurricular activities. The student's grades will 
be monitored at mid-semester and again at the end of the semester to ensure academic 
progress. If a student's midterm or final grades fall below a semester average of 2.0, the 
student will be removed from all extracurricular activities immediately. The student will 
not be allowed to rejoin extracurricular activities until the student has reached the mini- 
mum cumulative GPA required for good academic standing. 

Veterans' Services 

Veterans who are eligible to receive educational benefits must report their enrollment 
to the Financial Aid Office after they register for each semester or summer session. The 
financial aid office will then submit certification to the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

Veterans who are attending Lebanon Valley College for the first time must complete 
the appropriate forms before certification of enrollment will be sent from the financial aid 
office to the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

Students eligible for veterans benefits who remain on academic probation for two 
consecutive semesters must be reported to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans 
with questions about the College or their status with the College should contact the 
Financial Aid Office. 

Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges 

Lebanon Valley College has been designated as an institutional member of 
Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC), a group of over 400 colleges providing 
post-secondary education to members throughout the world. As an SOC member, 
Lebanon Valley College recognizes the unique nature of the military life-style and has 
committed itself to easing the transfer of relevant course credits, providing flexible resi- 
dency requirements, and crediting learning from appropriate military training and experi- 
ences. 

Teacher Certification for Nonmatriculated Students 

Lebanon Valley College offers teacher certification to a variety of special students: stu- 
dents with degrees from other colleges, teachers seeking certification in other fields, or 
Lebanon Valley College alumni seeking certification for the first time. All students must

UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 

General Education Program 

Through the General Education Program, the College most directly expresses its 
commitment to the ideal of liberal education that underlies its statement of purpose. The 
program has four components: communications, liberal studies, cross-cultural studies, 
and disciplinary perspectives. This program seeks to prepare graduates who are broadly 
competent, skilled in communication, capable of analysis and interpretation, tolerant, 
and able to continue to learn in a rapidly changing world. 

Our academic program aims to educate students so that they: 

• acquire a broad base of knowledge across the liberal arts disciplines, including 
both content and method; 

• come to understand that facts are important primarily as evidence from which we 
infer meaning in the form of theories, arguments, and interpretations; 

• learn to draw upon and integrate different disciplines when considering 
particular problems or issues; 

• learn to think critically and independently, i.e., to understand, construct, and 
respond to arguments, and develop a questioning, open-minded attitude; 

• learn to communicate clearly and cogently, both in speech and in writing, in 
listening and in reading; 

• acquire sensitivity and skill in interacting with different cultures and traditions, 
and come to understand and respect differences among human beings; 

• establish a foundation for their continuing education, including their intellectual, 
aesthetic, and moral growth, their personal and vocational development, and their 
understanding of themselves as citizens at the local and global levels. 

The program consists of coursework in the following four areas: 

Communications. 15 credit hours. 

English Communications (2 courses) 
Writing Requirement (3 courses) 

This component recognizes the central role communication plays in learning and in life. 
Courses teach the principles of clear and effective communication and provide opportunities 
to practice and refine them throughout a student's college career. 

English Communications. Courses teach the elements of English composition and the 
related skills of speaking, reading, listening, word processing and bibliographic access 
through database searching. 
Requirement: ENG 111 or FYS 100; ENG 112. 

First-year students must fulfill the communications component of the General Education 
Program by enrolling in either First- Year Seminar (FYS 100) or English Communications I 
(ENG 111). The primary goal of each course is to help tlrst-year students become college- 
level writers. Students will be assigned the same amount of writing in both FYS 100 and 
ENG 111. An important difference between the two courses is that each FYS class is 
organized around a particular topic, and students will write in response to various aspects 
of that topic, whereas ENG 1 1 1 is not organized around a particular topic, so its students 
can expect to write essays about a variety of different topics. Students in FYS should expect 
to do more reading than students in ENG 111. 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Programs 19 



Writing Requirement. In addition to English Communications, students must complete three 
courses designated Writing Process, preferably one each during the sophomore, junior and 
senior years. Along with course content, faculty will also teach writing in these courses and 
will make evaluation of writing quality an important factor in the course grade.

stand, interpret, and appreciate cultural, social, moral, economic and political systems dif- 
ferent from their own. 

Foreign Lxinguage. By learning another language, students see the world from a different 
linguistic and cultural perspective. These courses help students understand that all 
languages solve similar problems of expressing thought, but that each language provides 
special access to a particular human society. 
Requirement: Two courses.

Cooperative Programs 

Allied Health Professions 

Lebanon Valley College has established a cooperative program with Thomas Jefferson 
University in Philadelphia, Pa., for students interested in the allied health professions. The 
College of Health Professions of Thomas Jefferson University offers baccalaureate 
programs in biotechnology, cytotechnology, medical technology, radiologic sciences, 
and nursing, and also offers an entry-level master's program in occupational therapy. 
Nutrition, one of the requirements for the nursing program, is not offered at Lebanon Valley 
College and must be taken during the summer at another institution or online. 

Students spend two years at Lebanon Valley College taking required courses in the basic 
sciences and other disciplines. During the second year, application is made to Thomas 
Jefferson University. Admission to Thomas Jefferson University is not automatic, and 
depends upon the academic record, recommendations, knowledge of the profession, and 
often an interview, ff accepted, the student spends two years (three years for occupational 
therapy) at Thomas Jefferson University taking professional and clinical courses. Upon 
successful completion of the program, the student is awarded a baccalaureate (or master's, 
for occupational therapy) by Thomas Jefferson University. An early acceptance program 
for high school seniors, is available (called PACE). Interested students must contact 
Thomas Jefferson University directly. Thomas Jefferson University also offers post- 
baccalaureate master's programs in various disciplines, as well as a post-bacclaureate 
DPT. 

Engineering 

In the cooperative 3-1-2 Engineering Program, a student earns a B.S. degree from Lebanon 
Valley College and a B.S. degree in one of the fields of engineering from another institution. 
Students do three years of work at Lebanon Valley College and then usually do two 
additional years of work in engineering. Students may study engineering at any accredited 
engineering school. To assist the student, Lebanon Valley College has cooperative (con- 
tractual) agreements with The Pennsylvania State University at both University Park and 
Harrisburg; Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland; and Widener University in 
Chester, Pa. There are three tracks for 3-h2 engineering. For most fields of engineering 
(e.g., civil, mechanical, electrical), the student completes the B.S. physics track. For 
chemical engineering, the student completes the B.S. chemistry track. For computer 
engineering, the student completes the B.S. computer science track. For more information,

year is spent off campus at an accredited hospital school of medical technology. It is the 
student's responsibility to apply and become accepted into a hospital program. Thirty 
semester hours of credit are awarded for the successful completion of this year. 

Pre-Professional Programs 

Pre-Law Program 

Lebanon Valley students have done very well at a variety of law schools. In recent years, 
our graduates have gone on to Penn State Dickinson, Temple, Villanova and Widener law 
schools. Over the years, LVC students who have excelled academically have graduated from 
Harvard, Chicago, Columbia, Stanford, Washington and Lee, and William and Mary. 
After law school, Lebanon Valley graduates have gone on to careers in private practices, 
corporations, government and politics. 

Lawyers perform a wide variety of services in American society. As a result, the legal pro- 
fession has become increasingly specialized. In addition to traditional areas such as tax, 
administrative, corporate, criminal, and property law, lawyers now specialize in entertain- 
ment, environmental, family and sports law. Because we work closely with our pre-law 
students, we try to tailor their undergraduate programs to meet individual interests. 

The pre-law program is designed to provide important course preparation, practical 
experience, and advising for a pre-law student. In addition to the courses that are a part of 
the pre-law program, students are advised to take other courses relevant to the area of law 
they wish to pursue. The internship in law, taken in the junior or senior year, is an especially 
important part of preparation for law school. 

The Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT) is required for acceptance at American Bar 
Association-approved law schools. Students who are going to apply to law school should 
take the LSAT during their junior year. It is given four times during the year, and it may be 
taken at Lebanon Valley College. For many, it will be beneficial to take an LSAT prepara- 
tion course. Two are available within a short driving distance of LVC. 

Students interested in law school should contact the pre-law advisor in their freshman 
year. Contact Dr. Philip Benesch, Department of History and Political Science, 307D or by 
e-mail at benesch@lvc.edu. 

Pre-law program courses: PSC 110, American National Government; PSC 315/316, 
American Constitutional Law; PSC 415, Foundations of American Law; ECN 101/102, 
Principles of Micro and Macro Economics; BUS 371/372, Business Law; ACT 161/162, 
Financial and Managerial Accounting; and PSC 400, Internship. 

Pre-Medical, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Veterinary 

Lebanon Valley College offers pre-professional preparation in the medical (medicine, 
osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, pharmacy, chiropractic and dentistry) and veterinary fields. 
Students interested in one of these careers usually follow a science curriculum with a major 
in biochemistry and molecular biology, biology, chemistry or psychobiology. 

In addition to the basic natural sciences suited to advanced professional study, the student 
may participate in an internship program between the College and local physicians or vet- 
erinarians. Students not only receive credit for the work, but also gain valuable experience 
in the field. 

A health professions committee coordinates the various plans of study in addition to 
offering advice and assistance to those persons interested in health professions careers. 

Lebanon Valley College graduates have been admitted to some of the nation's finest 
schools, including Johns Hopkins University Medical School, University of Virginia, 

26 Undergraduate Academic Programs 2005-2006 Catalog 



Cornell University, The University of Pennsylvania, The University of Pittsburgh. Jefferson 
Medical School, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, The Pennsylvania State 
University Medical School at Hershey, Temple University School of Pediatric Medicine, 
The University of Maryland, The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, The 
Pennsylvania College of Pediatric Medicine, and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. 

Individualized Major 

The option of an individualized major is available to students who desire a field of 
concentration that is not substantially addressed by any one department. The faculty rep- 
resents a diverse set of interests and perspectives that provides a considerable resource for 
those students who would like to develop a major around concerns that do not fall into tra- 
ditional disciplinary areas. As a liberal arts institution, the College and its faculty are will- 
ing to help a student develop a program of study using interdisciplinary courses. 

A student planning an individualized major should prepare an application that includes 
courses relevant to the topic and secure the written endorsement of at least two faculty 
advisers for the proposed major, which shall consist of at least 24 credits above the 100 
level. 

The student should submit the application to the vice president and dean of the faculty 
for final approval. The student will work closely with the advisors. Any changes in the 
program must be submitted to the dean for approval. 

Degree: Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree (depending upon concentration) 
with an individualized major. 

Requirements: Those courses specified within the approved individualized major plus 
those courses to meet the general requirements of the College. 

Internships 

An internship is a practical and professional work experience that allows students to 
participate in the operations of business, industry, education, government or not-for-profit 
organizations. Internships provide students with opportunities to integrate their classroom 
learning with on-the-job experiences and to test practical apphcations of their liberal arts 
education in a variety of settings. 

To be eligible for an internship sponsored by an academic department or program, a 
student generally will have junior or senior standing. Students must request and receive 
permission from departmental chairpersons or program directors to enroll in internships. 
The student must also enlist a faculty internship supervisor from the department sponsoring 
the internship and an on-site internship supervisor from the internship location. 
Application forms for internships are available in the oftlce of the registrar. The application 
form shall be completed by the student and approved by the student's academic advisor, 
faculty internship supervisor, on-site internship supervisor, and the department chairperson 
prior to registration. 

For each semester hour of credit, the intern should invest at least 45 hours of time at 
the internship location. Academic departments and programs establish other specific criteria 
and procedures for internships. In addition to the practical on-site experience, internships 
have an academic component that may include readings, reports, journals, seminars and/or 
faculty conferences. A student may enroll for 1-12 credit hours of internship during any one 
semester. A student may use a maximum of 12 credit hours of internship to meet gradua- 
tion requirements. All internships have a course number of 400. 

Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Programs 27 



Independent Study 

Independent study provides an opportunity to undertake a program of supervised reading, 
research or creative work not incorporated in existing formal courses. The independent 
study should result in a formal document. Independent study shall not be used to approximate 
an existing course or to cover projects more properly described as internships. Junior or 
senior standing and a minimum GPA of 2.00 or higher are required. 

For one semester hour of credit, the independent study student should invest at least 45 
clock hours of time in reading, research or report writing. The independent study involves 
a contract between the student and the faculty member (contract instructor) who will oversee 
the study. Written application forms regarding the independent study are available in the 
office of the registrar. The forms must be completed by the student and approved by the 
student's faculty advisor, the contract instructor, and the department chairperson. 

Students may enroll in a maximum of 3 credit hours per independent study in any one 
semester. A maximum of 6 credit hours in independent study may be used toward the 
graduation requirements. All independent studies have a course number of 500. 

TYitorial Study 

Tutorial study provides students with a special opportunity to take an existing formal 
course in the curricula that is not scheduled that semester or summer session. Students 
desiring a tutorial study must have an appropriate member of the faculty agree to supervise 
the study on a one-on-one basis. 

For one semester hour of credit, the student should invest at least 45 clock hours of 
time in the tutorial study. The tutorial study essentially involves a contract between the 
student and the faculty advisor. The typical tutorial study involves readings, research, 
report writing, faculty conferences, and examinations. All tutorial study courses have the 
same course number as the existing formal catalog course. 

Special Topics Courses 

From time to time, departments may offer Special Topics courses using the following 
course numbers: 290-298, 390-398, 490-498 and 590. Special Topics courses are formal 
courses that are not listed permanently in the curricula and that are offered infrequently. 
These courses examine comparatively narrow subjects that may be topical or of special 
interest. Several different topics may be taught in one semester or academic year. A specific 
course title shall be used in each instance and shall be so noted on the student record. 

Study Abroad 

Lebanon Valley College has established its own study abroad programs for students 
majoring in all subjects. All programs ensure a cultural immersion experience for stu- 
dents, with several programs, open to language majors and non-language majors, also 
offering a language-enhancement opportunity. These programs are located in Argentina, 
Australia, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Spain 
and Sweden. 

Lebanon Valley College also offers off-campus academic internship programs in 
Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Students in any major field can gain work experience 
in a large U.S. city while earning academic credits for the semester. Further information 
on all off-campus programs may be obtained at the Study Abroad Office, HUM 206, ext. 
6076. See In- Absentia on page 12.

UNDERGRADUATE DEPARTMENTS AND PROGRAMS 
AMERICAN STUDIES PROGRAM 

The American Studies program is designed to heighten critical awareness and appreci- 
ation of what is distinctive about American culture. As a self-consciously interdisciplinary 
program, American Studies is the primary site at LVC for courses dealing in women's 
studies, ethnic studies, cultural studies, and media studies. Its curriculum regularly touch- 
es on issues of class, gender, ethnicity, and multiculturalism. As a result, most of the gen- 
eral education's required courses in cultural diversity studies are listed through the 
American Studies program. The program is also developing courses that will critically 
explore the interrelationship of religion and politics in the United States, the impacts of 
consumerism on the American economy and culture, the distinction between 'pop culture' 
and 'high culture,' and the importance of the counter-cultural movement in American art, 
literature, and film. 

The American Studies program draws on faculty from various disciplines and depart- 
ments from throughout the College, such as religion and philosophy, history and political 
ccience, anthropology, art, English, music, and biology. Each class is committed to engen- 
dering a culture of participation in which student input and engagement is absolutely 
essential to the success of the course. Also, the program is known for creating many of the 
most innovative and experimental courses on campus, such as the team-taught courses on 
violence and non-violence and on film and the American identity. 

The requirements for a major or minor in American Studies are relatively light and 
extremely flexible. This allows many of the majors and minors to add a double-major, and 
also provides ample opportunity for studying abroad. An undergraduate degree in 
American Studies can lead to a career in teaching, publishing, law, journalism, govern- 
ment, consulting and research, historic preservation, museums, archiving, tourism, or a 
number of other professions. Many of our graduates also go on to graduate school to earn 
a master's degree or doctorate in American studies or a related discipline. 

Degree requirements:

five) classes outside of the major on topics related to U.S. culture: Courses will be chosen 
in consultation with the advisor, and must relate to some aspect of American culture. Two 
"concentration" courses: The two concentration courses will be chosen in consultation 
with the advisor. Could include AMS 400 (internship) or AMS 500 (independent study).

DEPARTMENT OF ART AND ART HISTORY 

In the art and art history program we challenge students to explore the creative 
process and to engage with art objects — whether in the art studio, the exhibition space, 
the print media or the commercial world — with energy, commitment, and critical 
insight. We seek to form citizens who validate the essential contribution of the visual 
arts to human society. 

The degree program in art and art history offers three concentrations: studio art, art 
history, and art education (K-12). Within these concentrations, students are offered a 
wide variety of courses that include digital media, film, and museum study. Central to 
the program is a direct engagement with works of art; thus, most courses include a field 
trip to a museum, gallery, or private collection. 

The department is located across the street from the Gladys M. Pencil Art Building, 
which houses studio space dedicated to sculpture, ceramics, painting, drawing, design, 
and printmaking. Students also have the use of a darkroom for photography. 

Graduates of the art and art history program can pursue a wide variety of creative 
endeavors, including commercial illustration and fashion design; magazine layout and 
editing; stage, exhibition, and/or website design; photographic research; and art gallery 
management. Students who successfully complete the art certification program are 
qualified to teach kindergarten through 12th grade. The art and art history program also 
prepares students for graduate school in art history, studio art, or art therapy, which can 
lead to a career in teaching and research, journalism, conservation, museum curatorship, 
painting, or social work. 

There are no prerequisites for entry into the art and art history program. No portfolio 
is required; however, students with a portfolio should present it to the department for 
review.

DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGY 

Biology Program 

The Biology Department attempts to share with all LVC students the role of living 
organisms within the universe. We encourage the students to understand how these organ- 
isms interact with each other and their environments and are the result of the complex 
interplay of ordinary chemicals, arranged according to the fundamental laws of physics 
and assembled in mathematically predictable ways. 

The goal of the Biology Department is to produce graduates who are well versed in the prin- 
ciples and techniques of biology, have the intellectual training to investigate novel concepts, 
have the abUity to learn independently, interpret and articulate clearly their findings, possess 
the highest scholarly standards of the discipline, and maintain honest academic conduct. 

The Biology Department curriculum (1) employs the underlying principles of biology 
and requires a background in the supporting disciplines; (2) requires the application of the 
scientific method in the laboratory or field; (3) integrates informational retrieval, the 
synthesis of ideas into a coherent whole, and the communication of research findings; and 
(4) prepares students for advanced study in medical, dental and veterinary professional 
schools, graduate schools, and employment in technical fields.

make choices within the institution of free-market capitalism. Individuals decide how 
much of their time to spend working and what to buy with the earnings of their labor. 
Firms decide how much to produce and in some cases what price to charge for their goods. 
Together these choices determine what is produced, how it is produced, and for whom it 
is produced in our economic system. 3 credits.

ducer choices to discover how they affect the nation's economy. Macroeconomics deals 
with the economy as a whole as measured by the key variables of inflation, unemploy- 
ment, and economic growth. Emphasis is on both Keynesian and classical theories and

welfare, and equity and efficiency issues that are inherent in the free-market system are 
emphasized. Prerequisites: ECN 101 and 102. 3 credits. 

202. Intermediate Macroeconomic Analysis. In this course, students develop a model of 
the macroeconomy which permits them to analyze the nature of the business cycle. The 
assumptions built into the model can be altered, rendering it capable of examining the 
macroeconomy from various theoretical viewpoints. In addition to unemployment, infla- 
tion and economic growth, the course covers real business cycles, the macroeconomic 
implications of free trade, and emphasizes the microeconomic foundations of macroeco- 
nomics. Prerequisites: ECN 101 and 102. 3 credits. 

250. Public Choice Economics. This course concerns itself with how individuals and 
groups make decisions in the context of the family, interest groups, bureaucracies and the

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY 

Chemistry Program 

Chemistry is the "central science" that provides the fundamental understanding needed 
for protecting our environment, maximizing the yield from limited natural resources, 
improving our health, and creating new materials for tomorrow's products. Indeed, 
chemistry is essential to understanding life itself. 

Career opportunities in chemistry are numerous and diverse. Many students enter 
academic, industrial or governmental laboratories where they find positions in 
environmental analysis, quality control, or research and development. Possibilities outside 
the laboratory include teaching, sales, marketing, technical writing, business and law. Many 
chemistry students continue their education in graduate school in chemistry or biochemistry 
or in professional schools in the areas of medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine. 

The Department of Chemistry is located on the upper two floors of the Garber Science 
Center. Major scientific equipment available to students includes a superconducting nuclear 
magnetic resonance spectrometer, a liquid scintillation counter, a fourier transform infrared 
spectrometer, high-performance liquid chromatographic systems, diode-array UV-visible 
spectrophotometers, a Raman spectrophotometer, a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, 
and an atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Computing facilities available to students in 
the department include 12 computers in the Molecular Modeling Laboratory. 

The department encourages students to discover the excitement and challenge of 
laboratory research. Research programs are conducted during both the academic year and 
the summer. Students are paid for summer research either from college funds or from 
grants that professors receive to support their projects. 

Two degrees are available to those interested in chemistry and one for those interested 
in biochemistry. The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is the more demanding of the two 
degrees in chemistry and is recognized by the American Chemical Society. This degree 
has a required research component and is recommended for students who wish to become 
practicing chemists or enroll in graduate school. Other students opt for the standard 
Bachelor of Science, majoring in chemistry. 

The major in biochemistry is offered jointly with the Biology Department. For the 
major program and course descriptions in biochemistry, see page 42. 

The chemistry department participates in the 3-1-2 Engineering Program and directs the 
chemical engineering track. For details, see Cooperative Programs on page 24.

DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS PROGRAM 

The Digital Communications Program explores the fundamental elements of com- 
munication, business, design, and technology. The program fosters critical reasoning and 
learning so graduates have the ability to evolve as quickly as current technology. 

The program is interdisciplinary and combines classes from the art, business, English, 
and computer science departments into one degree. After graduating with a B.S. in digi- 
tal communications, the student is prepared to enter a wide range of technology-related 
positions in marketing, public relations, information technology, journalism, graphic 
design, Internet development, multimedia, and programming. 

The creation of content, both written and visual, remains at the heart of this subject. 
Students will study art, writing and marketing in the context of content creation for the New 
Media. Students will learn the theory behind the design of effective presentations and will 
employ existing multimedia technologies to create them. The techniques with which content 
is created, processed and delivered are found in the study of programming and computer sci- 
ence. Students in the program will choose a discipline related to the program and com- 
plete advanced coursework to form a cognate in that area. Students will also investigate and 
carefully consider the social, ethical, and legal ramifications of the information technology 
revolution. 

The program, designed to be interdisciplinary and integrative, emphasizes critical 
thinking, creativity and analysis, rather than specific applications and technologies. The 
General Education Program at the College, together with the courses in the students' cog-

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION 

The Department of Education certifies students in elementary, special education^ 
English as a Second Language (ESL), and secondary education. 

Post-baccalaureate certification is also available for those who wish to become teachersi 
or for those already certified who want to add elementary, special education, ESL, or a| 
secondary certification area to an existing certificate. '. 

Certification in two or more areas of teacher preparation is possible; however, suchj 
certification requires meticulous attention to scheduling and may require additional! 
semesters. Elementary education majors who, as freshmen, begin to pursue elementary, spe-i 
cial education, or ESL certifications, will be able to complete them within their four years: 
of study, unless they add other elements to their studies, such as pursuing an additional 
minor, double majoring, going abroad, etc. Careful and early scheduling can avoidi 
misconceptions about such issues. 

The Education Department is intent on preparing well-rounded and qualified graduates; 
who will exercise genuinely professional and personal leadership roles in the schools and 
communities where they will live and work. 

In accord with the regulations set forth in Chapter 354, General Standards for the 
Institutional Preparation of Professional Educators, the following criteria must be met b}^ 
all candidates who seek teacher certification at Lebanon Valley College: i 

I. Admission to teacher certification candidacy is neither automatic nor synonymousi 
with admission to the College or to the major. , 

II. All teacher candidates must be admitted to teacher certification candidacy by a for-j 
mal and clearly delineated process that is distinct from admission to the College and/or to 
the major. 

in. Admission to teacher certification candidacy is contingent upon the completion of 
these criteria: ' 

(1) completion of a minimum of 48 college credits; 

(2) an overall GPA, after having completed 48 or more college credits, of at least 3.0;i 

(3) completion of at least one English composition course; 

(4) completion of one English or American literature course; 

(5) completion of two college level mathematics courses; j 

(6) passing scores on these PRAXIS Tests: PPST Reading; PPST: Writing; PPST:| 
Mathematics. ! 

(7) completion of the Application for Admission to Teacher Certification! 
Candidacy form, available from the major adviser. 

IV. Those students who do not meet the above criteria may continue to pursue teacher 
certification, even though they are not and cannot be considered candidates for teacher 
certification until all of the above requirements have been met. 

V. Once all of the above requirements have been met, the student must see his or her advi-' 
sor to complete the Application for Admission to Teacher Certification Candidacy form, 

VI. Students who are not formally admitted to teacher certification candidacy cannot stu-i 
dent teach nor will they be able to be recommended for teacher certification upon graduation. 

VII. Students who have been formally admitted to teacher certification candidacy, but; 
who afterward fall below the required overall GPA of 3.0, may continue in the program; 
however, they may not student teach unless and until they have achieved the required] 
overall GPA of 3.0. I 



66 Education 2005-2006 Catalog 



VIII. Students must have the required overall GPA of 3.0 at the time of graduation in 
order to be eligible for recommendation by the college for teacher certification. 

Title II 

In accordance with state and federal regulations, Lebanon Valley College regularly 
reports the aggregate student data to the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The 
HEA- Title II 2003-2004 academic data (the last year of available data) shows the 
Aggregate - Basic Skills institutional pass rate for the 78 students taking the assessment 
to be 77/78 or 99 percent, the Aggregate - Academic Content Areas (math, English, biol- 
ogy, etc.) pass rate for the 76 students taking the assessment to be 72/76 or 95 percent, and 
the Aggregate - Teaching Special Populations (special education, ESL, etc.) pass rate for 
the 16 students taking the assessment to be 16/16 or 100 percent. Many factors, such as 
the number of students in the program, number of tests required for licensure, the number 
of licensure candidates who complete all required exams before graduation, and the num- 
ber of teacher certification candidates who actually take the licensure exams, affect the 
overall College scores.

DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES 

The study of a foreign language has three aims: to develop fluency in the basic com- 
munication skills, to provide an understanding of the cultural heritage of the people who 
use the language, and to understand language as the fundamental medium by which 
humankind thinks and interacts. 

The Department of Foreign Languages prepares the language major for a career in a 
variety of fields: teaching, diplomatic and government service, foreign trade, business, 
and social service. For many of these careers the study of a foreign language is often com- 
bined with majors in other disciplines.

for foreign travel and study, particularly Lebanon Valley College programs in Cologne,

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES 

The Lebanon Valley College Department of Mathematical Sciences has long offered a 
rigorous mathematics program within the context of a liberal arts education. The 
increasing national need for quantitatively prepared individuals makes our program even 
more attractive today. Actuaries, computer programmers, mathematics and computer 
science teachers, college professors, operations research analysts, and statisticians are in 
high and continuing demand. In addition, the mental discipline and problem-solving 
abilities developed in the study of mathematics are excellent preparation for numerous 
and varied areas of work and study. 

The department was cited in the Mathematical Association of America's 1995 
publication, Models That Work, for its exceptional program and for its service to students. 
It offers majors in actuarial science, computer science and mathematics; secondary 
teaching certification in mathematics; and minors in mathematics and computer science. 

Departmental graduates have earned doctorates in economics, physics, statistics, and 
computer science as well as mathematics. Other graduates have completed law school. 
Many graduates have earned the designation of Fellow of the Society of Actuaries or of 
the Casualty Actuarial Society. 

Mathematical Sciences Department majors are active in student government, athletics, 
musical organizations, and other activities. The department is always well represented in 
the list of students named to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. There 
are two active student clubs, the Math Club and the Student ACM Chapter. 

The Mathematical Science Department also directs the computer engineering track in 
the 3+2 Engineering Program. For details, see Cooperative Programs on page 24. 

Mathematics Program 

The Mathematics major is the cornerstone of the program in the Department of 
Mathematical Sciences. Each faculty member in the department has a doctorate in some 
area of mathematics. Operations research analyst, computer support consultant, computer

Actuarial Science Program 

Actuaries are business professionals wlio use expertise in mathematics, economics, 
finance and management to define, analyze and solve financial and social problems. 
Actuaries are employed by insurance companies, consulting firms, pension/benefit con- 
sulting firms, large corporations, and federal and state government agencies. Actuarial 
credentials, which are earned after obtaining a bachelor's degree, result from completing the 
rigorous education and examination program administered by either the Casualty Actuarial 
Society or the Society of Actuaries. 

The Actuarial Science Program at Lebanon Valley College was established in the 1960s 
and is coordinated by Professor Hearsey, who is an Associate of the Society of Actuaries. 
With over 120 graduates working in the profession, including 44 fellows and 30 asso- 
ciates, Lebanon Valley is recognized as having one of the leading undergraduate actu- 
arial education programs in the East and the only full undergraduate program at a small 
liberal arts college. 

The College's actuarial curriculum is designed to help actuarial students prepare for 
the curricula of the professional actuarial societies initiated in the year 2000. The program 
introduces students to material on the first four examinations in the Society of Actuaries and 
Casualty Actuarial Society examination programs. 

The rigorous standards of the program, including the required passing of at least one 
actuarial examination, has resulted in a nearly 100 percent placement record of Lebanon 
Valley College actuarial science graduates in professional actuarial positions. 

Degree Requirements: 

Degree: Bachelor of Science degree with a major in actuarial science.

Computer Science Program 

Computer science is the study of what can be done with machines. This discipline is part 
mathematics, part engineering, part philosophy, part linguistics, and part experimental 
science (without all the mess). 

Our computer science curriculum is distinguished primarily by two characteristics. The 
first is our emphasis on computer programming. Five of the required seven CS courses are 
primarily about programming, and programming plays an important role in most of the 
advanced courses. This emphasis develops strong analysis and problem-solving skills. 

The second characteristic of the computer science major is its decidedly mathematical 
nature. Our students take 19 credits of mathematics (seven courses), more than is typical of 
undergraduate CS programs. This math foundation gives our students an analytical 
background that applies broadly in their CS coursework, helping them become better 
programmers and analysts.

MILITARY SCIENCE PROGRAM 



\ 



The Military Science Program adds another dimension to a Lebanon Valley College 
liberal arts education with courses that develop a student's ability to organize, motivate 
and lead. 

Participation in military science courses during the freshman and sophomore years 
results in no military obligation. Courses during these years orient students on the various 
roles of Army officers. Specifically, these courses stress self-development: written and 
oral communication skills, leadership, bearing and self-confidence. 

Individuals who elect to continue in the program during the junior and senior years will 
receive a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Reserve, or 
the Army National Guard, upon graduation. Then they will serve three months to four 
years in the active Army, depending upon the type of commission. 

Options are available for those individuals who encounter scheduling conflicts or who 
desire to begin participation after their freshman year. Contact the Military Science 
Department, 717-245-1221 or 888-356-3942, for further information. Course instruction 
is held at Millersville University. I 

Program participants may take part in various enrichment activities during the academic 
year: rappelling, rifle qualification, leadership exercises, land navigation, orientation trips, 
and formal social functions. Program participants may also apply for special training cours- 
es during the summer: airborne, air assault schools, and cadet troop leader training. 

Scholarships: Army ROTC offers four-, three- and two- year scholarships, awarded strict- 
ly on merit, to the most outstanding students who apply. The scholarship is valued at 
$17,000 a year. In addition to paying all or part of your tuition, the scholarship offers a 
stipend of $250-400 a month plus $600 a year for books. All scholarship recipients remain 
eligible for financial aid. 

Corresponding Studies Program: Students participating in an off-campus study program 
in the United States or abroad may continue participation in either the Army ROTC Basic 
Course or Advanced Course and receive the same course credit and benefits as a student 
enrolled in the on-campus program. Scholarship students also are eligible to participate. 

National Advanced Leadership Camp: The practicum consists of a five-week sum- 
mer training program at Fort Lewis, Wash. NALC stresses the application of military 
skills to rapidly changing situations. Participants are evaluated on their ability to make 
sound decisions, to direct group efforts toward the accomplishment of common goals, and 
to meet the mental and physical challenges presented to them. Completion of NALC is 
required prior to commissioning and is normally attended between the junior and senior 
years. Participants receive room, board, travel expenses, medical care, and pay.

DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY 

The Psychology Department at Lebanon Valley College seeks to foster the development 
of a thoughtful, flexible, and scientific approach toward human behavior, guided by criti- 
cal analyses of empirical research. Our curriculum is a student-oriented, liberal arts pro- 
gram that prepares students, following graduation, for applied entry positions in the work 
force, or for graduate studies in a range of areas such as psychology, neuroscience, social 
work, medicine, business, education, and law. The program allows our students to arrive at 
a thorough understanding of processes underlying behavior, with a broader goal of apply- 
ing this knowledge to one's own life and society in general. This goal is consistent with the 
mission of the College, which is to enable "students to become people of broad vision, 
capable of making informed decisions and prepared for a life of service to others." 

The department offers students the benefits of a strong classroom-based traditional 
background in a variety of behavioral subdisciplines, along with providing opportunities 
to become involved in the field of psychology in an applied manner. Many psychology 
majors gain practical knowledge through (1) participation in independent and 
collaborative research projects under the guidance and supervision of individual faculty 
members, as well as (2) our extensive internship program, which allows students to 
receive college credit for work experience relevant to their particular interests within the 
field of psychology. Overall, the Department of Psychology at Lebanon Valley College 
offers the "best of both worlds": experiences and facilities usually associated only with 
larger universities, along with individualized instruction and advisement characteristic of 
small liberal arts institutions. 

Psychology Program 

The psychology program requires all majors to complete a minimum of 42 credits of 
psychology coursework. All majors initially complete several foundation courses, which 
include introductions to a vast array of subfields within psychology, as well as laborato- 
ry-based exposure to the nature of research design and analysis. Students then complete 
courses within each of five critical psychological subdisciplines (human development, 
psychopathology, biopsychology, cognition, and social processes), which include addi- 
tional, advanced, lab-based research. Finally, all majors complete an integrative capstone 
experience, which includes coursework surveying the history of psychology, as well as the 
completion of an individualized internship or research project.

GRADUATE ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 

Lebanon Valley College offers four graduate programs. These are the Master of 
Business Administration (MBA), the Master of Music Education (MME), the Master of 
Science Education (MSE), and the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs. 

The Master of Business Administration Program is a multi-disciplinary program 
designed to prepare graduates for managerial responsibilities at various levels of business 
organizations. This program provides a strong theoretical foundation as well as opera- 
tional expertise in the areas of finance, management, marketing, human resource man- 
agement, and operations management. 

The Master of Music Education Program is designed to be completed over 
the course of three summers. Addressing the graduate education needs of K-12 music 
teachers (the program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music), the 
curriculum includes experiences in foundations and principles of music education, 
research methods, music technology, and the psychology of music learning plus several 
elective choices. 

The Master of Science Education Program is designed primarily for elementary and 
middle school teachers, teaching in kindergarten through eighth grades, who want to 
enhance their understanding of science principles as well as their ability to teach these 
concepts to their students. This program focuses on the "hands-on" or experiential learn- 
ing of science. Teachers with minimal experience in science and the methodology neces- 
sary to teach science to their students, as well as those with a strong background in one 
area of science and desire to complement it with comparable understanding of the other 
sciences, will benefit from this program. 

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is a six-year program of study for students 
who will receive a preliminary baccalaureate degree in health science after four years of 
course work. 

Graduate Program Policies and Procedures 

Academic Advising and Registration

Concurrent Courses 

A student enrolled for a graduate degree may not take courses concurrently at another 
educational institution without prior consent of the academic advisor and the registrar. 

Grading 

Student work is graded A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C and F. Candidates must maintain a grade 
point average of 3.00 with a maximum of two C grades in the program. 

In addition, the symbols I and W are used. I indicates work that is incomplete but oth- 
erwise satisfactory. It is awarded only for substantial reason and work must be completed in 
the first eight weeks of the following semester, including summer session, or I will be 
changed to F. 

W indicates withdrawal from a course through the designated withdrawal date. 
Thereafter, the appropriate letter grade will be assigned for the course.

Review Procedure 

Every student's academic progress shall be reviewed at the end of each academic period 
by the academic advisor. Any student whose average falls below 3.00 or who earns a C or 
F in three or more credit hours may be placed on academic probation. A student on academic 
probation may be required to retake courses or correct other academic deficiencies and must 
achieve a 3.00 cumulative average within two semesters of being placed on probation. 
A student may repeat a maximum of two graduate courses with any given course being 
repeated only once. Students who fail to correct deficiencies may be dropped from the 
program. A student may appeal any decision of the Office of Graduate Studies and 
Continuing Education to the vice president and dean of the faculty. 

Course Withdrawal and Tuition Refund 

Any student who withdraws from courses for which he or she is registered must notify 
the advisor in writing. The effective date of withdrawal is the date on which the student 
notifies the office. Failure to give notice of withdrawal will result in a grade of F. Notifying 
the instructor does not constitute official withdrawal. A refund schedule based on official 
withdrawal date is available on the GS and CE webpages. 

Time Restriction 

The maximum time for completion of a graduate program is seven years from the date 
of the admission letter. Students who have not earned the graduate degree during this 
period shall have their academic standing reviewed and may be asked to meet additional 
requirements in order to graduate.

Students are expected to uphold the principles of academic honesty. Academic dis- 
honesty will not be tolerated. For the first academic dishonesty offense, failure in the course 
is mandatory, and the faculty member is required to inform the program director in writing.
