Lycoming is a coeducational liberal arts college 

with a student body of 1.500, approximately 

900 men and 600 women. A United Methodist 

related institution, Lycoming is open to students 

regardless of their religious, 

racial, or national backgrounds.

CATALOG 1971-1972 


At Lycoming it is believed that a liberal arts edu- 
cation is the best hope for an enlightened citizenry 
and that vocational and professional specialization 
must be built on a broad acquaintance with the vari- 
ous disciplines. Programs are arranged within a lib- 
eral arts framework so that all students study the 
humanities, sciences, and social sciences. 

Our experienced full-time teaching faculty is well 
prepared to teach with 209 degrees from 101 col- 
leges and universities. Over 59% of our classes at 
Lycoming have 19 or less students; over 36% have 
10 or less students. Greater personal attention is pos- 
sible with experienced professors teaching freshman 
through senior courses. 


Beyond the level of general education, the College 
stresses the pursuit of a major. This presses the stu- 
dent to achieve competency in a more limited area 
and encourages greater depth and sense of academic 
achievement. The major relates to increased under- 
standing of oneself and his world; it leads both to 
graduate school and to vocation. Majors are not 
confined to single departments of the College; 
increasingly they are interdepartmental in nature, 
thus permitting the student a wider range of ex- 
perience in related fields. 




Lycoming College, in scenic North Central 
Pennsylvania ninety nniles north of Harrisburg. is set 
upon a slight prominence near downtown Williams- 
port overlooking the beautiful West Branch Valley of 
the Susquehanna River. Greater Williamsport, with a 
population of 85.000. is within 200 miles of Washing- 
ton. Baltimore. Philadelphia. New York. Syracuse, 
Rochester. Buffalo, and Pittsburgh. It is easily ac- 
cessible by bus. airline, and automobile. Interstate 80 
passes fifteen miles south of Williamsport; U.S. 
Routes 1 5 and 220 come through the city. 

The area is known for its lovely mountain scenery 
and excellent outdoor recreation facilities. Thousands 
are attracted each year to the woods and crystal-clear 
streams where hunting, fishing, and hiking are un- 
surpassed. Ice skating, skiing, and tobogganing are 
popular winter sports. State Forests and Parks 
abound in the area and have excellent facilities for 
swimming and picnicking. 
















The facilities at Lycoming are excellent. Of the 
twenty-two buildings on a twenty-acre campus, 
fourteen have been constructed since 1951. Twelve 
modern structures have been built in as many years 
including six dormitories, a student center, a science 
building, and a five million dollar academic center 
whosefourbuildings providea library to accommodate 
250,000 volumes, an arena theatre, a planetarium, 
faculty offices, classrooms, lounge, and exhibit 
facilities. In addition, there is a twelve-acre athletic 
field with a 1 ,400 seat stadium, near the campus. 



Selective admission is based on academic achieve- 
ment reflected in school records, class rank, and SAT 
scores. In addition, subjects studied, counselor and 
teacher recommendations, and other available infor- 
mation that might identify well-qualified candidates 
are considered. 

Graduation from an approved secondary school 
with sixteen or more academic units (grades nine 
through twelve) is required. Although a set pattern 
of high school subjects is not required, a strong pro- 
gram of academic subjects is recommended as the 
most desirable preparation for college. This should 
include a total of 1 5 or 16 academic units with 
substantial work in the areas of English and mathe- 
matics, and additional work in foreign language, 
social studies, and science. Students who have com- 
pleted advanced placement, accelerated or honors 
courses are given special consideration. 

Candidates and their parents are urged to visit 
the campus. An appointment with the admissions 
office would be helpful. Write or call 717-326-1951, 
Ext. 221. 




A full program of cultural, professional, athletic, 
and social activities is an integral part of college 
life at Lyconning. You can find outlets for your talents, 
interests, and abilities among the numerous student 
organizations — fraternities, departmental clubs and 
honorary societies, student government, publications, 
and a comprehensive varsity and intramural sports 
program — each abounding in opportunities for stu- 
dent participation.

Purpose and Objectives 

Lycoming College encourages the search for meaning within a world of 
changing values. Although its primary thrust is within the liberal arts, the 
College recognizes the importance of vocational emphases to assure 
competency in the world of work. 

Free inquiry is essential to the pursuit of truth and self-understanding. 
Within an atmosphere in which moral and religious values are considered 
important, Lycoming College stresses: 

(a) Competency in the use of language and appreciation for literature; 

(b) Understanding of the basic principles of mathematics; 

(c) Analysis of relationships and values through the study of philo- 
sophy and religion; 

(d) Experience in scientific method and knowledge; 

(e) Basic understanding of the fine arts through an introduction to 
music, the theatre, or the history of art; 

(f) Experience in the methods and content of history, social sciences, 
and the behavioral sciences, with at least an introduction to eco- 
nomics, sociology, history, political science, or psychology. 

(g) The importance of maintaining sound physical and mental health. 

Beyond the level of general education, the College stresses the pursuit 
of a major. This presses the student to achieve competency in a more 
limited area and encourages greater depth and sense of academic achieve- 
ment. The major relates to increased understanding of oneself and his 
world; it leads both to graduate school and to vocation. Majors are not 
confined to single departments of the College; increasingly they are inter- 
departmental in nature, thus permitting the student a wider range of ex- 
perience in related fields. 

The College believes that the classroom is but one important phase of 
the academic program. The student also lives in a residential unit or com- 
mutes from home. He participates in multitudinous "activities'" or in 
none at all. More recently he has been encouraged to take part in "the 
governance of the college" and to express freely his own aims, ac- 
complishments, and frustrations. These must each be the concern of the 

Lycoming College firmly believes that the search for values within the 
historical setting of religious concern must be the function of the entire 
institution. All of campus life, and not simply the activities of classroom 
and chapel, must actively assist the student to discover his true vocation 
as a human bemg. 


History and Traditions 

Founded in 1812 as Williamsport Academy, it is the oldest educational 
institution in the city of Williamsport. At first, the Academy served only 
the young through what are now recognized as the elementary grades. 
With the advent of public schools in the city, the Academy expanded its 
curricular offerings to include high school and college preparatory work. 

In 1848, under the patronage of The Methodist Episcopal Church, the 
Academy became Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. The Seminary con- 
tinued as a private boarding school until 1929 when once again its offer- 
ings were expanded, this time to include two years of college work. This 
expansion resulted in a change of the institution's name to Williamsport 
Dickinson Junior College. During its years as a junior college under 
President John W. Long, the institution forged a strong academic repu- 
tation, strengthened its faculty and expanded its physical plant. 

Increasing national demands for higher education following World 
War II prompted another significant step in the growth of the institution. 
In 1948, the junior college became Lycoming College, a four-year degree- 
granting college of liberal arts and sciences. 

Lycoming College is approved to grant baccalaureate degrees by the 
Pennsylvania State Department of Education. The College is accredited 
by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools 
and the University Senate of The United Methodist Church. Lycoming 
is a member of the Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Uni- 
versities, the National Association of Schools and Colleges of The United 
Methodist Church, the Association of American Colleges, and the 
National Commission on Accrediting. 

The name Lycoming is derived from an Indian word "lacomic" mean- 
ing "Great Stream.'" It is a name that has been common to north 
central Pennsylvania since colonial times and is an appropriate one for 
a school whose purpose has been consistently that of educating the area's 
young men and women. Through fulfillment of its specific objectives, it 
has been and continues to be an influential voice in the educational, 
cultural and spiritual development of the entire north central Pennsyl- 
vania region. 


Through more than a century of its history, the college has had the 
stabilizing influence of The United Methodist Church. The evolution of 
Lycoming from its origins to its present status has been accomplished 
with the continuous conviction that a Christian philosophy of life is a 
proper leaven of higher education. Lycoming fosters a Christian atmos- 
phere in all aspects of the college program and stresses the development 
and practice of a Christian way of life. 

Faculty and students express their religious convictions through 
membership and participation in nearly thirty Protestant denominations 
as well as the Roman Catholic and Hebrew faiths. Significant oppor- 
tunities are off'ered every student for personal expression of religious faith. 

Lycoming College firmly believes in Christian higher education. One 
of its major objectives is continuous affirmation of the validity of the 
Christian faith as a way of life. Fulfillment of this objective is aided by 
the support of a strong Department of Religion. This department was 
established through the generosity of the late Honorable M. B. Rich, for 
ten years President of the Board of Directors. 

An emphasis upon Christian worship and thought is offered by the 
weekly chapel program which brings outstanding religious leaders to the 
campus to share contemporary religious thinking with the students. 






Academic Program 


Admissions Policy 

The College Committee on Admissions sets policy and recommends 
the standard to guide the selection of candidates. Selective admission is 
based on academic achievement reflected in school records, class rank, 
and SAT scores. In addition, subjects studied, counselor and teacher 
recommendations, and other available information that might identify 
well-qualified candidates are considered. 

Academic Requirements 

1. Graduation from an approved secondary school is required. 

2. Although a set pattern of high school subjects is not required, a strong 
program of academic subjects is recommended as the most desirable 
preparation for college. This should include a total of 15 or 16 aca- 
demic units with substantial work in the areas of English and mathe- 
matics, and additional work in foreign language, social studies, and 

3. The College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test is required. Acceptable 
scores are considered in the light of other academic information. 

Selection Process 

Applications are accepted until March 1, after which the selection 
process begins. Criteria have been established to identify well-qualified 
candidates who are sincerely motivated to high academic performance. 

♦Prospective music majors must provide a letter of recommendation from the applicants" private 
teacher and/or high school music supervisor. 


Although it might seem, with the emphasis placed on test scores, class 
rank, and other statistical information, that numbers are all important, 
this premise is not entirely so. Many hours are devoted to reading ap- 
plications, personal recommendations, counselor's evaluations and other 
available information. In addition, phone calls and letters are frequent!) 
exchanged in an effort to discern the qualities in an applicant which pla> 
an important part in the success of the student at Lycoming. Each 
candidate is carefully considered in a very personal way. 

Candidates are notified of the committee's decision sometime after 
March 15, but before April 1. Those selected are required to pay a $100 
tee no later than May 1. This amount is not an extra charge but is used 
to reserve a space at the college for the fall and each succeeding semester 
for which the student is eligible to return. It will be applied toward the 
charges of the last semester in residence, normally the semester prior to 
graduation. When a student decides to terminate his enrollment at 
Lycoming College prior to graduation, this fee will be refunded when a 
written request is made to the Registrar before the end of the student's 
eighth week of his last semester. 

EARLY DECISION PLAN. Lycoming College has adopted an Early 
Decision Plan which will permit the Director of Admissions to notify 
well-qualified candidates at the beginning of their senior year in high 
school that their admission to the college is assured upon graduation. To 
be considered under the early decision plan, a candidate must complete 
application requirements before November 1. Candidates accepted in 
this category will be notified by December 1 and will be required to Day a 
SI 00 fee. 

FARLY NOTIFICATION. Appraisal of an applicant's credentials will be 
sent (approximately 15 days following written request) to candidates who 
designate Lycoming as first preference. 

Application Procedure 

1 . Persons desiring to apply for admission should request official forms 
from the Director of Admissions. 

2. The Admissions Office compiles a personal folder for each applicant 
and the following items must be submitted before a candidate is con- 
sidered for admission. These items should be received at the college 
before March I. 

a) A completed application for admission and secondary school rec- 
h) A recent photograph (approximately 2" x 3"). 

c) A fee of SI 5. which is a processing charge and is not refundable. 

d) Confidential reports from two persons listed as references in the 

Note: Forms are supplied bv the college for items (</) and id). 


e) Scholastic Aptitude Test scores of the College Entrance Examina- 
tion Board. Results from the test written during the senior year are 
preferred. Results from the test written during the junior year may 
be accepted for early decision candidates. 

Note: It is recommended that candidates who write achievement 
tests have the results reported. 
3. Candidates are invited to visit the campus and to meet with the Direc- 
tor of Admissions or a representative of the Admissions Office. This 
time provides an opportunity for reviewing the candidate's credential 
file, discussing plans, and answering questions. 

Advanced Standing by Placement 

Students entering as freshmen, who have studied an advanced course 
while in secondary school and have taken the appropriate advanced 
placement examination of the College Entrance Examination Board, are 
encouraged to apply for credit and placement. A grade of three or above 
is generally considered to be satisfactory. 

Grades of the examinations and supporting materials are evaluated in 
deciding whether a candidate is given credit with advanced placement or 
advanced placement only. Credit given is entered upon the student's 
record without charge for tuition. 

Students may also receive advanced placement by examinations ad- 
ministered at the college during Freshmen Orientation Periods. Exami- 
nations at this time may be taken in chemistry, foreign languages, and 

Advanced Standing by Examination 

Students may earn college credit for superior achievement on the 
College Level Examination Program (CLEP) sponsored by the College 
Entrance Examination Board. By achieving at the 75th percentile or 
above on the General Examinations and the 65th percentile or above on 
the Subject Examinations, students may earn up to 50 percent of the 
course requirements tor the B.A. degree. These examinations are ad- 
ministered the third week of each month at regional testing locations 
around the nation. Further information may be obtained from the Office 
of the Registrar. While these examinations may be taken after enrollment 
at the College, entering freshmen are encouraged to take the examina- 
tions of their choice during the second semester of their senior year in 
high school so that the College will have the test scores prior to registra- 
tion in order that the student may be placed at his level of competence.

Advanced Standing by Transfer 

Transfer students applying to Lycoming College shall have their 
records evaluated by the Registrar prior to admission. A transfer student 
must meet the minimum requirements for normal progress toward the 
degree, as defined for Lycoming College students, in order to be consid- 
ered for admission. A transfer student shall have his class status de- 
termined by the number of course credit hours in which he was enrolled 
at the previous institution(s). 

The guidelines used by the Registrar in determining the status of 
transfer students are as follows: (a) Courses in which ''C" or better 
grades were earned shall not be charged against the student if these 
courses are not transferrable because they are not comparable to courses 
offered at Lycoming College, (b) "D'" grades up to the maximum allowed 
by Lycoming College shall be charged against the transfer student in 
determining student status, (c) No student shall be permitted to enroll in 
more than a maximum of 164 credit hours in all institutions attended in 
order to earn the minimum number of courses and grade point average 
required for graduation, (d) Students must be in good academic standing 
to be admitted on transfer. 

If an interview is to be required, a mutually convenient time will be

superior scholarship. Students are admitted to the Dean's List when they 
have completed at least three courses with other than S/U and have a 
minimum grade point average of 3.50 for the semester.

Academic Standing 

All students must complete a minimum of fifteen (15) unit courses with 
an average of "C" or better to be advanced to upper division standing 
(junior year). A student whose cumulative or semester average falls 
below "C" is considered to be in academic difficulty and his academic 
record will be reviewed by the Committee on Academic Standing. Such 
students may be placed on academic probation, suspended, or dismissed 
by the Committee on Academic Standing according to regulations estab- 
lished by the Faculty. 

Grading System 

The college uses the traditional letter system of grading: A B C D F, 
or Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory. 

Any student enrolled full-time at Lycoming College may elect to take 
up to a maximum of four courses on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis. 
Only one course may be taken on this basis during any semester. No 
course taken by a student on a S/U basis after the declaration of his 
major and his approval by the department involved may be used to 
satisfy a requirement of that major. 

A student must be in good academic standing in order to elect a 
course on the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis during a summer session. 
By the tenth day after the first day of class students must declare in the 
Registrar's Office their intentions to be graded on a S/U basis. The 
grading procedure cannot be changed after this declaration. Unless a 
student chooses to do so himself, instructors will not be notified of the 
decision to elect the S/U option. Those students admitted to the College 
Scholar Program may elect to enroll in four courses on a Satisfactory/ 
Unsatisfactory basis in addition to those courses in the College Scholar 
Program where enrollment on a S/U basis may be required. Enrollment 
in these four courses will be according to the regulations of the Satis- 
factory/Unsatisfactory policy established by the Faculty. 

A student will receive full credit for a course passed with a Satisfac- 
tory grade. Neither the "S" nor the "U" will count in computing the 
grade point average. 

Incomplete grades may be given where the student, for absolutely 
unavoidable reasons, has not been able to complete the work requisite 
to the course. Such circumstances usually stem from medical sources. 
An incomplete grade must be removed within six (6) weeks of the next 
regular semester. 


Class Attendance 

The academic program at Lycoming is based upon the assumption 
that there is value in class attendance for all students. Individual in- 
structors have the prerogative of establishing reasonable absence 
regulations in any given course. Responsibility for learning and ob- 
serving these regulations rests with the student. 

Mid-Semester Evaluations For Freshmen 

Mid-Semester evaluations are reported for freshman students who are 
deficient. These reports are filed with the Registrar who then reports 
them to the students concerned and their faculty advisors. The evaluation 
report from the instructor may be one of two types: (a) submission of a 
letter grade of "D"' or "F"; (b) submission of a written evaluation for 
those freshmen who are performing below the satisfactory level. 

Withdrawing From Courses 

A student may drop any course during the first two weeks of classes 
and no record of such enrollment shall be made on his permanent record 
card. A student may also add any course during the first two weeks of 
classes, subject to the approval of the instructor. Any student who wishes 
to drop a course after the second week of classes must secure a with- 
drawal card from the Ofl!ice of the Registrar. The student must present 
this card to the instructor of the course in question who will then assign 
one of the following grades: 

W — Progress at the time of withdrawal cannot be determined. 

WP — Progress at the time of withdrawal is satisfactory. 

WF — Progress at the time of withdrawal is unsatisfactory. 

This grade is then entered on the student's permanent record card. No 
withdrawal grade is counted in the computation of the grade point 
average, but the course from which the student withdraws is counted as 
one of the thirty-eight (38) unit courses to which the student is limited in 
completing his education at Lycoming. 

Academic Honesty 

The integrity of the academic process of the College requires honesty 
in all phases of the instructional program. The College assumes that stu- 
dents are committed to the principle of academic honesty. Students who 
fail to honor this commitment are subject to dismissal from the College. 
Procedural guidelines and rules for the adjudication of cases of academic 
dishonesty are printed in the Faculty Handbook which is available to 
students in the library. 

Degree Programs 

Lycoming College is a liberal arts institution granting the Bachelor of 
Arts degree. A degree candidate must fulfill certain minimal course re- 
quirements in breadth of learning — the distribution requirements — and 
in depth of learning in a chosen subject matter field — the major. 

Instruction at Lycoming College is organized, with few exceptions, on 
a departmental basis. Nearly all courses are unit courses, meaning that 
each course taken by the student is considered to carry the same academ- 
ic value as any other course. For transfer purposes each course is con- 
sidered to be equivalent to four semester hours of academic work. This 
does not mean that all courses will meet for four one-hour lectures each 
week although many will do so. Rather each course meets on a schedule 
set by the department and the instructor involved. Such meetings may be 
on a lecture, discussion, laboratory or tutorial basis. Varying amounts of 
additional reading, writing, study and research will be required for each 
course. The number of actual class meetings may vary from two to six or 
seven per week. 

Normally each student will elect four courses each semester, although 
in unusual circumstances a student may take more or less than this 
number. One unit course may be elected during each of the four-week 
summer sessions and the May term. Students may elect to enroll in five 
(5) courses during any semester provided they were admitted to the 
Dean's List during the preceding semester while carrying at least four 
unit courses. Exceptions may be made by the Committee on Academic 

The Major 

Except for individuals in the Lycoming Scholar program, all students 
will complete a series of courses in a field of concentration known as the 
major. The minimum number of such courses in any case is eight, and, 
except for interdisciplinary majors, the concentration is within a given 
department of the college. 



Departmental Majors 

Majors are available in the following departments: 

Accounting History 

Art Mathematics 

Biology Music 

Business Administration Philosophy 

Chemistry Physics 

Economics Political Science 

English Psychology 

Foreign Languages Religion 

French Sociology and Anthropology 

German Theatre 



Interdisciplinary Majors 

An interdisciplinary major can be elected instead of one of the de- 
partmental majors listed above. Two or more departments working 
together establish these programs which must be approved by the Com- 
mittee on Interdisciplinary Majors. Examples of established interdis- 
ciplinary majors are: Accounting-Mathematics. Literature, Near 
Eastern Culture and Archeology, and Soviet Area Studies. For a de- 
scription of these majors, see page 56. 

A student may take the initiative in designing a unique interdiscipli- 
nary major in consultation with his faculty advisor. The Committee on 
Interdisciplinary Majors must approve such programs. 

Guidelines for individual interdisciplinary majors are as follows: (a) 
Any student who is eligible to apply for a departmental major is eligible 
to apply for an individual interdisciplinary major, (b) Normally two or 
three departments are involved, (c) A minimum of ten courses beyond 
those satisfying the distribution requirements is expected. If the inter- 
disciplinary major involves departments not included in meeting the 
distribution requirements, then the ten courses may include elementary 
courses usually used to satisfy distribution requirements. However, the 
student is expected to take at least six courses at the advanced (Junior or 
Senior) level as determined in consultation with his advisors, (d) Students 
are advised by a committee composed of one instructor from each de- 
partment involved, with the chairman selected by the student. 

Admission To The Major 

Admission to a major is not automatic. Students desiring an individual 
interdisciplinary major apply to the Committee on Interdisciplinary 


Majors. Those who wish to be admitted to an estabhshed interdis- 
ciphnary major apply to the coordinating committee for that major. 
Students who wish to be admitted to a departmental major must secure 
the approval of the department involved and must meet the requirements 
established by the department for admission to the major. Students 
contemplating a departmental major should secure the requirements for 
admission to that major from the departmental chairman. Applications 
for a departmental major may be denied for academic reasons only. 
When a student has been denied admission to a major, he may appeal to 
the Committee on Academic Standing which, in consultation with the 
student and the department, will make the final decision. Students who 
have not been admitted to a major by the beginning of their junior year 
are subject to dismissal from the College. 

The Distribution Requirements 

One of the reasons a student chooses to come to Lycoming College is a 
desire to obtain a breadth of knowledge in many areas, a liberal arts ed- 
ucation. A student that deliberately elects to attend a liberal arts college 
is interested in more than training in a narrow major; he wants knowl- 
edge in an area of special interest, his major, amplified by exploration 
into kindred and "unrelated" fields. 

Lycoming College, being a liberal arts institution, insists that a major 
program of study be supported and challenged by the influences of a 
diversity of subjects. The major must not become narrow in its vision and 
sterile in its ability to help the student function eff'ectively in a world 
where nothing is neatly isolated and compartmentalized. The College be- 
lieves that the essence of liberal education is its potential for exposing the 
student to the multitude of historical, traditional, and contemporary 
avenues of thought and action which are brought to light in different 
ways through the study of various disciplines. 

By taking different kinds of subjects, a student can discover numerous 
ways of seeing things. He can gain the advantage of learning to view 
events and approach problems and questions from various points of 
view. He can discover that the interpretation of events and the relevance 
of solutions and answers will vary greatly for diff"erent individuals and 

To have its students achieve at least a minimal insight into this multi- 
plicity of perspective, thought, and reaction, Lycoming College requires 
that they select some of their courses from six groups of courses as out- 
lined below. The aim is not the garnering of specific, prescribed infor- 
mation, but rather, the development of a broadly based perspective of all 
aspects of life. 


The distribution requirements in freshman Enghsh, Mathematics, 
Fine Arts, Natural Science, and History and Social Science may be met 
by superior performance on the General Examinations of the College 
Level Examination Program. Further information may be obtained from 
the Office of the Registrar. 

ENGLISH. All students are required to pass English I and one other 

English course. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE OR MATHEMATICS. All studcnts are required to meet a 
minimum basic requirement in cither a foreign language or mathematics. 

Foreign Language. Students electing to take a foreign language may 
choose from among French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Russian, or 
Spanish. The student is required to pass two courses on the inter- 
mediate or a higher course level. Placement at the appropriate course 
level will be determined by the faculty of the Department of Foreign 

No student who has had two or more years of a given foreign lan- 
guage in high school shall be admitted to the elementary course in that 
same language for credit, except by written permission from the chair- 
man of the department. 

Mathematics. Students electing mathematics must complete four 
courses in mathematics. By passing proficiency examinations on the 
content of Mathematics 1 and Mathematics 2, a student may reduce 
this requirement to two other courses. These examinations are 
normally offered during the Freshman Orientation Period. 

RELIGION OR PHILOSOPHY. All studcuts are required to pass one year (two 
courses in the same subject) in either philosophy or religion. 

Philosophy. A student electing the philosophy option usually begins 
with Philosophy 10 and usually selects a second course from among 
those numbered 16 through 29. 

Religion. The distribution requirement may be satisfied by completing 
two religion courses, at least one of which must be 10, 13, or 14. 

FINE ARTS. All students are required to pass one year (two courses) in 
one of the following: 

Art. Any two art courses will satisfy this requirement. 

Literature. Students may elect one year (two courses) of literature in 
the English Department from the courses numbered 20 or above, or 
one year (two courses) of literature in the Department of Foreign 
Languages and Literature from the courses numbered 33 or above. 


Music. Any combination of music courses totaling the equivalent of 
two full-unit courses (academic full-unit courses — Music 1 through 46 
and Music 70s; or applied fraction unit courses — Music 60 through 69) 
will satisfy this requirement. A student can earn the equivalent of two 
full units in Music in one of the following ways: 

1 . Take two full-unit academic courses from those numbered Music 1 
through 46 and Music 70s, 

2. Take a total of two full units of applied music, from courses 
numbered Music 60 through 69, which are earned fractionally as 

a. 1/10 unit per semester for one half hour of instruction per week 
in courses numbered 60 through 66. 

b. 2/10 unit per semester for one hour of instruction per week in 
courses numbered 60 through 66. 

c. 2/10 unit per semester for music 67, 68, or 69. 

3. Take one full-unit academic course (Music 1 through 46 and Music 
70s) plus the equivalent of one full-unit course (10/10) earned 
fractionally in applied music courses 60 through 69 as explained in 
"2" above. 

Theatre. Any two theatre courses numbered 10 and above will satisfy 
this requirement.

Psychology 15, 16, 30, 31, 32, or 38. 

Sociology / Anthropology. Take Sociology 10 plus one other course. 

Special Opportunities for Students 

The changing nature o'i American education finds greater emphasis 
than ever before upon the development of significant opportunities for 
self-fulfillment among students. Pertinent educational goals demand that 
every student shall be accorded an opportunity to pursue a program that 
offers him the best chance to realize his intellectual potential. It is for this 
reason, that Lycoming has developed a curriculum that allows a maxi- 
mum flexibility in course selection, especially among those courses that 
support the major as well as those that effectively meet the requirements 
of the college's objectives in liberal education. But wide variety in course 


selection does not always allow as completely individualistic a program 
as one might wish. Therefore, a variety of Special Education opportuni- 
ties is provided. Lycoming College cannot assume responsibility for the 
health, safety, or welfare of any student while engaged in or enroute to or 
from any off-campus studies or activities which are not under the ex- 
clusive jurisdiction of this institution. 

LYCOMING SCHOLAR PROGRAM. This program IS designed to meet the 
needs of a small number of exceptional students who would profit from 
a more flexible curriculum than that normally required. The Lycoming 
Scholar may choose, depending on his background and interests, a pro- 
gram which allows (a) greater specialization or (b) more interdisciplinary 
work than the regular curriculum permits. 

A Lycoming Scholar may be elected in either of two ways: 

1. By having been elected in competition with other applicants, prior 
to enrollment at Lycoming. 

2. By being selected by the Lycoming Scholar Council, which adminis- 
ters the program, on the basis of proven performance at Lycoming 
College. Any student may apply "for admission up to the beginning 
of his junior year, provided he has maintained a grade point average 
of 3.25 or higher for two consecutive semesters at the time of appli- 
cation. Selection by the council is based on board scores, high school 
record, college record, interviews, and faculty recommendations. 

Each Lycoming Scholar will be assigned to a professor by the council. 
Jointly, they will construct a college program suited to the needs of the 
student. In general all curricular requirements, with the exception of 
successful completion of thirty-two unit courses, are waived. Lycoming 
Scholars are permitted to take more or fewer than four unit courses at a 
time; may substitute, with permission of the instructor, an independent 
study program for any course; may take independent reading or research 
courses; and will engage in special seminars conducted by members of 
the Lycoming Scholar Council. 

If the performance of a Lycoming Scholar is unsatisfactory he may be 
dropped from the program. Such a student will be expected to complete 
a major if possible and to complete the curricular requirements set by 
the council. 

The student should note that no financial aid is automatically granted 
any Lycoming Scholar. No aid automatically accrues to any Lycoming 
Scholar who elects to spend one or more semesters either overseas or at 
other campuses in the United States. However, all Lycoming Scholars will 
be given careful consideration when election of one of the special aspects 
of the program places an additional financial burden on the student and 
his family. The scholar should consult with the financial aid officer. 

INDEPENDENT STUDY. Each department granting a major provides op- 


portunity to students to work independently. Upon consent of the de- 
partment head, and the instructor, a student may register tbr courses in 
Independent Study. Normally, the opportunity for such study is provided 
for the better qualified major student who has successfully completed the 
courses making up the core of his major program. Except under unusual 
circumstances, registration for the studies course is limited to one unit 
course during each semester. If a student wishes to elect more than one 
unit during a semester or three or more unit courses in Studies in his total 
college program, approval of the Academic Standing Committee must be 
secured. Students who are privileged to elect Independent Study in any 
department register for courses numbered 80-89, Studies, with an 
appropriate title to be entered upon the student's permanent record. 

SEMINAR STUDY. The scvcral departments may from time to time find it 
possible to organize small classes or seminars for exceptional students in- 
terested in subjects or topics not usually a part of departmental course 
offerings. Establishment of the seminar and admission of students de- 
pends upon the approval oi' the department involved. Occasionally, 
Visiting Professors, Lecturers, or Specialists in Residence will offer such 
seminar studies. Students who are privileged to elect Seminar Study in 
any department register for courses numbered 70-79, Studies, with an 
appropriate title to be entered upon the student's permanent record. 
Enrollment in seminar courses is normally limited to ten students. 

DEPARTMENTAL HONORS. When a studcnt desires to enter an Honors 
program and secures departmental approval to apply, a faculty committee 
shall be convened whose initial responsibility shall be to pass upon the 
student's eligibility to enter the program. The committee responsibility 
shall also include the direction of the study, and final evaluation of its 
worth. Usually the Honors program involves independent study in two 
consecutive unit courses. Students who are privileged to elect Honors 
register for courses numbered 90-99. 

Honors study is expected to result in the completion of a thesis to be 
defended in a final oral examination. Acceptable theses shall be deposited 
in the college library. Successful completion of the Honors program will 
cause the designation of honors in the department to be placed upon the 
permanent record. In the event that the study is not completed success- 
fully, the student shall be re-registered in Independent Studies and given 
a final grade for the course. 

WASHINGTON SEMESTER. Upon recommendation of the faculty of the 
Department of Political Science, students may be permitted to attend the 
American University, Washington, D.C., for a period of one full 
semester. The Washington Semester program is intended to provide a 
first-hand acquaintance with various aspects of the nation's capital, as 
well as an academic experience equivalent to the normal four unit courses. 
This program is open to selected students who have special interests in 


political science, law and American government. Ordinarily, only junior 
students are eligible. 

of the faculty of the Department of Political Science, students may be 
permitted to attend The American University, Washington, D.C. for a 
period of one full semester. The Washington International Semester is 
intended to provide a unique academic experience in international 
affairs within the milieu of a major world capital. 

UNITED NATIONS SEMESTER. Upon recommendation of the faculty of the 
Departments of History or Political Science, students may be permitted 
to attend Drew University, Madison, New Jersey, for a period of one full 
semester. The United Nations Semester is intended to provide a first- 
hand acquaintance with the United Nations, New York City, as well as 
an academic experience equivalent to the normal four unit courses. This 
program is open to selected students who have special interests in world 
history, international relations, law, and politics. Ordinarily, only junior 
students are eligible. 

LONDON SEMESTER. Upon recommendation of the faculty of the Depart- 
ments of History or Political Science, students may be permitted to attend 
London University for a period of one semester. This program is oper- 
ated by Drew University in conjunction with many other American col- 
leges. It is intended to acquaint the student with the character of one of 
the principal sources of American law and politics as well as to provide 
an academic program equivalent to the normal four courses. Ordinarily, 
only junior students are eligible. 

OVERSEAS STUDIES OPPORTUNITIES. Under the auspices of approved 
universities or agencies, a student has the opportunity to study abroad in 
a foreign university. While overseas study seems particularly attractive to 
students majoring in foreign languages, this opportunity is open to all 
students. Mastery of the foreign language is not required in all programs. 
A file of opportunities for overseas study is available from the Reference 
Librarian or the faculty coordinator of overseas study opportunities. 

cipating member of the Association of Colleges and Universities for 
International Intercultural Studies (ACUIIS). The Association sponsors 
college courses taught during the summer at the University of Graz. 

Lycoming College students are eligible for participation in this pro- 
gram which extends over approximately seven weeks of the summer. 
Total cost for 1971 was $850.00 and included air fare, tuition, room, 
field trips, laundry and insurance. Students interested in this program 
should consult the Dean of the College. 

Vocational Aims 

Courses of study at Lycoming College are designed to fulfill two specific 
but interrelated purposes. The first is to acquaint the student with the 
liberal arts heritage of human civilization and the American nation. The 
second is to provide him an opportunity to explore, from an elementary 
to an advanced level, various fields that may fit him for life's vocation or 
direct him toward professional or graduate schools. A wide variety of 
vocations may be entered directly upon graduation. These include posi- 
tions in business, industry, government, and the professions, including 
teaching. Students interested in any of these areas are referred to their 
advisor, to the appropriate departments or to special advisors assigned 
for each of the areas mentioned above. 

Accounting, Business, and Economics 

Lycoming College offers course work in the field of business adminis- 
tration particularly designed for training prospective business leaders. 
The three areas of specialization are business administration, accounting, 
and economics. Business is a highly diversified occupation; therefore the 
curriculum is not designed to be vocational or narrowly pre-professional. 
The purposes of the business administration curriculum are to train and 
to equip the minds of men and women to recognize and to solve complex 
problems facing business executives, to develop an appreciation for 
rigorous analysis, to practice the arts of verbal and written communica- 
tion, and to expose the developing mind to as wide as possible a range of 
course work represented by the traditional liberal arts curriculum, to the 
end that a student becomes truly well educated. Considerable flexibility 
is permissible within the curriculum and the student is encouraged to 
pursue course work most rewarding to him. Three years of high school 
mathematics are recommended for preparation. For specific require- 
ments, refer to individual course areas. 



Preparation for Dental, Medical, or Veterinary School 

The curriculum for pre-dental, pre-medical, and pre-veterinary studies 
are all organized around a solid foundation of basic courses in biology, 
chemistry'^ and physics. Students in any of the three programs usually 
major in one of the natural sciences. 

At least three years of undergraduate study is suggested before entry 
into a college of dentistry, medicine, or veterinary medicine. However, 
the more normal procedure is to complete the bachelor of arts degree 
before entering the professional school. The student should consult the 
catalog of the college of dentistry, medicine, or veterinary medicine to 
which he expects to apply so that all courses required by that institution 
may be included in his program at Lycoming College. Consistent with 
the suggestions of these professional colleges, a wide range of subject 
matter from the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts are included in 
the programs. More information is available through the chairman of 
the biology department. 

Cooperative Curriculum in Engineering 

Consistent with increased attention being given nationally to engi- 
neering education, Lycoming College offers a cooperative curriculum 
combining the manifold advantages of a small liberal arts college with 
the training to be secured at an engineering school. By arrangement with 
Bucknell University and The Pennsylvania State University, the colleges 
offer a five-year program in which the first three years are spent at 
Lycoming and the final two at the engineering school. Upon completion 



of the first year at the engineering school, the student's record will be sent 
to Lycoming College. If the work is satisfactory, Lycoming College will 
award the Bachelor of Arts degree. Upon the completion of the five-year 
program of studies, a Bachelor of Science in Engineering is awarded by 
the engineering school. Combined programs offer an opportunity for 
completion of studies in the following areas: Bucknel! University: 
chemical, civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering; The Pennsylvania 
State University: aeronautical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical or 
sanitary engineering. 

Prescribed work at Lycoming includes, in addition to the degree re- 
quirements outlined above, courses in chemistry, mathematics and 
physics. Because the demands of the engineering curricula may differ 
somewhat, a program of studies at Lycoming College will be designed for 
each student when his plans as to type of engineering program preferred 
have been finally fixed. The Chairman of the Physics department will aid 
each cooperative engineering student in planning his program. 

Cooperative Program in Forestry 

Professional and scientific programs of study in forestry for men and 
women are offered in cooperation with the School of Forestry, Duke 
University. The student spends three years in residence at Lycoming and 
an additional five semesters at Duke. Upon satisfactory completion of 
two semesters at Duke the student will have earned the A.B. degree from 
Lycoming, and upon completing the remainder of the program will be 
awarded either the M.F. or M.S. degree from Duke, depending upon the 
nature of the program. 

Candidates should indicate to the Admission's Oflfice that they wish to 
enroll in the Forestry program. At the end of the first term of the third 
year, Lycoming will recommend qualified students for admission to the 
Duke School of Forestry. No application need be made to the School of 
Forestry before that time. 

Major fields of forestry at Duke are: 


Forest Resource Management Forest Ecology 

Forestry Business Management Forest Entomology 

Forest Protection Forest Pathology 

Forest Resource Economics Tree Physiology 

and Policy Tree Biochemistry 

Biometry & Statistics Dendrology & Wood Anatomy 

Systems Analysis Forest Hydrology 

Forest Meteorology 
Forest Soils 


Students with interests in Forest Resource Administration are ad- 
vised to elect a concentration in biology, business management, eco- 
nomics, mathematics, computer science, statistics, or sociology. Indi- 
viduals planning careers in Forest Science should strengthen their back- 
grounds in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Typical pro- 
grams in fields offered at Duke are available upon request from the Dean 
of the School of Forestry. Duke University. Durham. North Carolina 
27706. More information is available from the chairman of the Biology 

Cooperative Curriculum in Drama 

The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Lycoming College 
each recognize appropriate courses given by the other institution. At 
Lycoming an exception is made in the residency requirements for gradua- 
tion (page 9). Normally, in the case of the transfer student who is a 
graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and recom- 
mended by them and who has completed two years successful study at an 
accredited college or university, the residency requirement shall be two 
summers with The Arena Theatre and two consecutive semesters in an 
academic year. Course work may be required during summer sessions. 
Each case is subject to review. The affiliation with the Academy permits a 
graduating Lycoming senior to be eligible for advanced standing at the 
Academy upon recommendation of the Lycoming College Theatre De- 
partment Chairman and acceptance by the Academy. For information 
contact the Theatre Department Chairman. 

24/ preparation for law school 

Preparation for Law School 

Many colleges of law require a Bachelor of Arts degree for admission. 
The four-year degree program in pre-law at Lycoming College provides a 
background for the prospective student of law. Requirements include 
courses in political science and history, but also specified is a wide range 
of subject matter designed to acquaint the student with the vast scope of 
human experience. Students may expect to major in economics, history, 
political science, or related fields as they prepare for matriculation in law 
school. Individual programs are tailored to fit the student's needs as well 
as to meet the specific requirements of the law school to which he applies 
for admission. Interested students should contact the Political Science 
Department Chairman. 

Medical Technology 

This curriculum is organized around an academic background of basic 
science courses in addition to those liberal arts courses listed as require- 
ments for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Three unit courses in biology are 
required as well as one of mathematics. In chemistry. General Chemistry 
and one other course are required. Three or four years are spent in ob- 
taining this academic background; the final year is spent in the medical 
laboratories of an approved hospital. This will consist of an internship of 
a full calendar year at a hospital accredited in the Registry of Medical 
Technologists of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. The col- 
lege will give credit for the year when it is informed that the student has 
successfully passed the examinations given by the Registry of Medical 
Technologists of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. An 
official transcript of studies completed at the hospital must also be sub- 
mitted by the candidate. Lycoming College has a formal affiliation with 
Williamsport Hospital and Divine Providence Hospital m Williamsport 
and also with Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre and Lancaster General 
Hospital. Interested students should contact the Chemistry Department 

Religious Education 

Any student desiring extensive study in biblical history and literature, 
the historical development of Christianity, and Christian doctrine may 
major in religion. A qualified student planning to enter the vocation of 
religious education should, besides majoring in religion, elect five or six 
unit courses in psychology, education, and sociology. This program of 
study, completely within the liberal arts curriculum, is to qualify gradu- 
ates for work as Educational Assistants, or after graduate study in a 
theological seminary, as Directors of Christian Education. Interested or 


prospective students are invited to contact the Director of Religious 
Activities for further information concerning the opportunities, respon- 
sibihties and requirements of these and other church vocations. 

Preparation for Theological Seminary 

(Christian Ministry) 

Young men and women called to the Christian ministry or related 
vocations will find the pre-ministerial curriculum at Lycoming College 
an exciting and challenging opportunity. Basic courses specified by the 
American Association of Theological Schools are virtually identical with 
the program of courses required for a Bachelor of Arts degree at Ly- 
coming College. Such courses offer a wide range of subject matter pre- 
senting many opportunities for the pre-ministerial student to acquaint 
himself with the broad scope of human experience. Preparation for 
seminary includes earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in one 
of a variety of fields such as religion, English, history, and philosophy. So 
that every student may have a curriculum designed to fit his individual 
needs, the offerings in the junior and senior year are largely elective. 
1 he choice of electives will depend upon the specific requirements of the 
theological school in which the student expects to matriculate. Interested 
students should contact the Director of Religious Activities. 

Teacher Education 

Lycoming College trains teachers for elementary and for secondary 
education. The program is clearly identified with the liberal arts nature of 
the college, and hence, no candidate for the profession of teaching is con- 
sidered apart from the total liberal arts objective. Teacher education can- 
didates meet all general course requirements of the college including a 
major in a subject matter field. Interested students should contact the 
Education department chairman for further information. Applications 
for student teaching (Professional Semester) must be submitted to the 
Education department on or before March 1 in the student's junior year. 



General Expenses For The Academic Year 1972-73 

In considering the expenses of college, it is well to bear in mind that no 
student actually pays the full cost of his education. State colleges are en- 
abled to keep the cost of tuition within reasonable limits by grants from 
the public treasury: independent colleges achieve this by voluntary con- 
tributions supplemented by income from their invested endowment 
funds. At Lycoming College, the tuition fee which each student pays 
represents only a portion of the total instruction cost. Tuition is kept at 
the lowest possible level consistent with adequate facilities and competent 

Tuition at Lycoming is $1,050.00 per semester, plus certain fees which 
are listed on the following pages. The room expense for boarding stu- 
dents amounts to $250.00 per semester except for men living in the Fra- 
ternity Residence, who are assessed an additional $25.00. Board is 
$300.00 per semester (the academic year comprises two semesters of 
approximately sixteen weeks each). If, for justifiable reason, it is impos- 
sible for a student to eat in the College Dining Room, permission may be 
given the student to make other arrangements for meals. However, in 
the event such permission is granted, the room cost will be 50% higher 
than the above rates. If a student requests the use of a double room as a 
single room and the room is available, he will be charged 50 "„ more than 
regular rates. 

The tuition charged covers the regular or prescribed course of study 
which normally comprise four subjects each semester. If there should be a 
considerable increase in the price of commodities and/or services during 
any semester, the College reserves the right to make appropriate in- 
creases in the charges for the following semester. Additional detailed in- 
formation will be furnished by the Treasurer's Office upon request. 

Application Fee and Deposit 

All students applying for admission are required to send an application 
fee of $15.00 with the application. This charge is to partially defray the 
cost of processing the application and maintaining academic records and 
is non-refundable. 

After a student is notified that he has been accepted for admission by 
the college, he is required to make a deposit of $100.00. This deposit is 
evidence of the applicant's good intention to matriculate and is appli- 
cable to the general charges of his final semester in attendance (see page 
5); it is not an extra fee. This deposit is not refundable when the student 
fails to matriculate at Lycoming College. 



BOOKS AND Supplies 

A modern book and supply store is conveniently located in the Wertz 
Student Center. Books and supplies are purchased by the individual stu- 
dent. The estimated cost is approximately $75.00 per year, but will vary 
somewhat in accordance with the course of study which the student is 
pursuing. The bookstore is open registration day and daily thereafter.

tration day for that semester. Checks or money orders should be payable 
to Lycoming College. 

Charges for laboratory supplies and additional credit hours will be 
billed and payable immediately following each registration period. 


Partial Payments 

For the convenience of those who find it impossible to follow the 
schedule of payments as listed, arrangements may be made with the 
College Treasurer for the monthly payment of college fees through 
various educational plans. Additional information concerning partial 
payments may be obtained from the Treasurer or Director of Admissions. 

Withdrawals and Refunds 

The date on which the Dean of the College approves the student's with- 
drawal sheet is considered the official date of withdrawal. In the case of 
minors, the approval of the parent or guardian is required before the 
withdrawal is approved and before any refund is made. 

Room charges have been fixed on a semester basis. Consequently, 
students leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be en- 
titled to any refund of room charge. 

Refund of tuition and board will be made to students who withdraw 
voluntarily from the college while in good standing and is fixed on the 
followmg basis: Students leaving during the first four-week period are 
charged 30"o; during the second four weeks, 60 °o; during the third four 
weeks. 90 °o; after twelve weeks, full charge. 

Dropping a unit course from the original schedule after the first week 
of either semester will not justify any claim for refund of tuition charges. 
No refund will be made to those students who are asked to withdraw 
from the college. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 

Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees 

A student will not be registered for courses in a new semester if his ac- 
count for previous attendance has not been settled. 

No grades will be issued, no diploma, transcript of credits, or certifi- 
cation of withdrawal in good standing will be granted to any student 
until a satisfactory settlement of all obligations has been made. 

Damage Charges 

Wherever possible, damage to dormitory property will be charged to 
the person or persons directly responsible. Damage and breakage oc- 
curing. in a room will be the responsibility of students occupying the 

Halls and bathroom damage will be the responsibility of all students of 
the section where damage occurs. Actual costs of repairs will be charged. 

Financial Aid 

Lycoming recognizes the problem of constantly increasing educational 
costs and offers a substantial program of financial aid to assist those 
needing help to attend an excellent private coeducational college. 

No academically qualified student should hesitate to apply to Ly- 
coming College solely because of financial need. 

At Lycoming, we make every effort to assure that qualified students are 
not barred due to their limited resources. Our financial aid office will 
assist as many qualified students as funds permit. 

Lycoming has five forms of financial aid: Scholarships — Loans — 
Work Study Grants — Educational Opportunity Grants — Grants-In-Aid. 

The establishment of need is the controlling factor in determining the 
amount of any financial aid. A scholarship may be awarded on the basis 
of financial need and academic ability, while a grant is given on the 
basis of financial need alone. Long term, low cost educational loans are 
available to most students who need them from Federal and State 
sources. If your academic standing is satisfactory, a portion of your col- 
lege expenses can be earned by part-time work. In order to qualify for 
continued financial aid, a student must maintain both a satisfactory 
academic average and a record of good citizenship. 

Since financial aid can be extended to you only after you are accepted 
for admission to Lycoming College, your first step is to apply for admis- 
sion. Request an application, and any other information you need, from 

Director of Admissions 

Lycoming College 

Williamsport, Pa. 17701 
Your admission application must be submitted by March 1. You should 
apply for financial aid as soon as possible after you apply for admission. 



Lycoming Scholar Committee Scholarships are awarded to certain 
Freshmen who are admitted to the Lycoming Scholar Program. Awards 
range from $400 to full tuition, depending upon the recipient's financial 
need. A 3.0 grade point average is needed for scholarship renewal. 



A number of Directors Scholarships are awarded lo students who do 
not receive a scholarship from the Lycoming Scholar Committee but 
were in the top fifth of their high school class and had a College Entrance 
Board Tests combined score over 1200. They range from S300 to full 
tuition depending upon the student's financial need. Renewal is possible 
if a 3.0 cumulative average is maintained and financial need continues. 


For students who can not qualify for scholarships, Lycoming has an 
extensive program of grants-in-aid up to full tuition. Awards are based 
on demonstrated need and the prospect of the student contributing 
positively to the college community. Renewal requires continued 
financial need, maintenance of satisfactory academic and citizenship 
standards, and participation in college activities. 

MiMSThKiAi, Grants-! n-Aid: Financial assistance is available through 
grants from The United Methodist Church to children of ministers and 
ministerial students. 

Educational Opportunity Grants are given to students with excep- 
tional financial need who are in good academic standing. These are 
available under the Higher Education Act of 1965. 

Loans: Federal National Defense Student Loans are available to needy 
students. Other loans are available through the various state student 
loan programs. 

Work-Study Grants are allocated to students in academic good 
standing who come from low income families. These federal grants are 
available under the Higher Education Act of 1965. 

Community Scholarships 

in many communities there are local groups and foundations which 
provide funds to help worthy students. Often there are also high school 
awards available. Your guidance counselor and principal are the best 
sources of information. 

Education Financing Plans 

In addition to direct financial aid described above, the Business Office 
or the Student Aid Office will provide information, upon request, about 
plans enabling parents to pay college expenses on a monthly basis. 

Students interested in receiving financial aid are urged to contact the 
Financial Aid Office for additional information. 

Religious Life 

Lycoming College provides a student with many opportunities to 
mature in his faith through participation in the religious life of the 

Through the office of the Director of Religious Activities, a varied 
religious life program is maintained as needs arise. Presently, the Campus 
Church has emerged. Worship services are conducted each Sunday on a 
voluntary basis, and at other times such as Holy Week. The services of 
worship are planned and conducted by students and include the use of 
outside speakers as well as our own faculty and students. The worship 
committee is appointed by the Campus Church Council; the governing 
body is elected by the Campus Church. 

The mission of the Campus Church is activated by the Campus Church 
Council through activities such as retreats, service projects and study 
groups. Next year two major, campus-wide study-worship-action forums 
are planned. 

The Director of Religious Activities also provides counseling service 
each afternoon in his office in Clarke Chapel. 

A part-time Roman Catholic chaplain assists the activities of the 
Newman Club and maintains office hours in Clarke Chapel for coun- 
seling purposes. 

Interfaith activities are carried out through special committees ap- 
pointed by the Director of Religious Activities in consultation with the 
Roman Catholic Chaplain and other interested persons. 


Student Activities 

Lycoming accepts the responsibility of trying to make every situation 
in which learning occurs constructive and positive. The college believes 
that learning is a continuous process that takes place not only in the class- 
room, but also in every college activity. 

The college assumes its responsibility in this area by directing the extra- 
curricular educational experiences of the students in such a way that 
these activities contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the 
college, by complementing the academic life of the campus. 

The college considers one of its responsibilities to be the encourage- 
ment of as many different activities as are necessary to provide all stu- 
dents with the opportunity to participate constructively in this area of 
student life. Departmental clubs; athletics, both intercollegiate and 
intramural; varied interest groups such as denominational clubs, the 
choir, the band, etc.; social organizations; social activities; self-govern- 
ing groups; and many informal associations are equally important in a 
well-integrated program of student activities. 

Recognizing the need for skilled leadership in our world, the college 
aims to utilize students in as many of the leadership positions as possible. 
In doing so, it will give students the opportunity to accept greater respon- 
sibilities, and to learn as they participate. 

Student Government 

Self-government by students in certain areas of campus life is an ob- 
jective achieved through the Student Government Association of Lycom- 
ing College. The Student Council is the legislative body of the Associa- 
tion. The officers of the Student Government Association are elected 
from the entire student body. Members of Student Council are elected by 
classes and certain other organizations. 

As the Student Council has been delegated authority for certain areas 
of campus life, it has also become more directly involved with the prob- 
lems of campus community life and is participaMng actively in the formu- 



lation of policy and procedures. Recognized by the college as the legiti- 
mate representative body of the students, the Student Council has been 
responsible for the organization of the Lycoming College Advisory 
Council which is composed of students, faculty, and administrators. 
This committee considers basic issues within the college, makes recom- 
mendations, and refers items to the various campus groups authorized 
to take action. 

A number of standing committees of Student Council are concerned 
with specific areas of student life. The Dining Room Committee advises 
the manager in menu planning and other areas of concern. Homecoming 
and Spring Weekend are major social activities under the sponsorship of 
Student Council. In addition to their own committees, students are 
voting members of all appointed faculty committees. Students partici- 
pate in almost all aspects of College governance and policy making, both 
curricular and administrative. 

Other governing groups on the campus are tne Inter-Fraternity Coun- 
cil, the Men's Residence Halls Council, the Women's Residence Halls 
Council, and the Associated Women Students. Each operates under 
limited authority in situations related to its specific area. 

Social and Cultural Influences 

The rapidly changing interests of students requires a flexible program 
which can be adapted to fulfilling the needs and objectives of both the 
College and the students. Social situations, which formerly served to pro- 
vide educational experiences for students are frequently out-dated with 
every new class of students. 

The College creates as many opportunities as possible to fulfill every 
student's objectives. The intention is to make it possible for the student to 
choose from among a variety of situations, so that no student's interests 
or needs are ignored. 

Student Union 

The Student Union Board of Lycoming College is an advisory and 
functional group of students who work with an Assistant Dean of Stu- 
dents who is responsible for development of the activity and social pro- 
gram. Students are selected for membership on the Board after they have 
served a year in the Apprentice Program. 

The Board's services to the campus include poster making and pub- 
licity, a travel service, social programs, dances, lectures, concerts, pic- 
nics, films, tournaments, recreational activities, bridge, life-saving 
courses, coffee-hours, and intercollegiate events. 

A laboratory for learning, the Student Union offers students an op- 
portunity to learn while serving the campus. 


College Publications and Communications 

There are several official college publications. Each is devoted to a 
specific area of college life, and is designed to communicate to selected 
groups of the college community. 

The Bell, official student newspaper, is published weekly and is de- 
voted to interests of the student body, reporting current campus events. 

The Arrow, college yearbook, is published in August and presents a 
record of student life during the current academic year.

and friends of Lycoming informed of current activities at the institution. 
A Report issue is published in newspaper format eight times a year. A 
magazine is issued once each semester.

residence halls. It operates daily from 10 a.m. to 12 midnight, except 
weekends when it is on the air on a more limited schedule. 

Campus Clubs and Organizations 

A variety of organizations on the campus provide opportunities for 
social and intellectual growth. These groups are organized and conduct- 
ed by students in cooperation with faculty sponsors or advisors. 

Some of the groups are: the Student P.S.E.A.-N.E.A., which gives 
prospective teachers current information on the teaching field and an in- 
sight into the problems of education; The Lycoming College Theatre, 
which stages a variety of dramatic productions including original work; 
The Varsity Club, composed of lettermen, which promotes college spirit 
in sports; the Business Club for students majoring in business administra- 
tion; the French, German, Russian and Spanish Clubs, which study the 
language and the life and culture of the countries; the Model United 
Nations Society, the Practical Politics Society, political clubs, and the 
Associated Women Students. 

Musical organizations at Lycoming offer to singers and instrumenta- 
lists alike a fine opportunity to learn by doing. There are several choral 
groups and instrumental ensembles offering every able student the 
chance to participate both on the campus and on tour. 



Six Greek letter fraternities on the campus provide a means of bringing 
to men students the advantages of national fraternal organizations as 
well as group housing. They include the Psi Chapter of Kappa Delta 
Rho, Beta Lambda Chapter of Sigma Pi, Iota Beta Zeta Chapter of 
Lambda Chi Alpha, Epsilon Beta Chapter of Theta Chi, and Gamma 
Rho Chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi, and Mu Theta Chapter of Tau Kappa 

The Inter-Fraternity Council coordinates the activities of the fraterni- 

Intercollegiate Sports

encourages wide participation by its students. It is a member of the 
National Collegiate Athletic Association, the Eastern Collegiate Athletic 
Conference and the Northern Division of the Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence. Lycoming annually meets some of the top-ranking small college 
teams in the East in athletic competition. Contests are scheduled with 
other colleges in football, soccer, basketball, wrestling, swimming, base- 
ball, tennis, golf, and track. 

Intramural Athletics

badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, golf, wrestling, swimming, 
horseshoes, track and field.

Programs and Rules 

Office of Student Services 

The Office of Student Services is located on the second floor of Long 
Hall. This office is responsible for all aspects of student development, 
except in the academic program and the business office auxiliary serv- 
ices. The staff" consists of the Dean of Student Development and five 
assistant Deans, each of whom live on campus and are available for 
counseling and advising students with individual problems. In addition, 
each staff" member is responsible for a functional assignment: Religious 
Activities and Health Service, Organizational Life. Student Activities and 
the Student Union. Housing, Career Counseling and Placement, and 
Special Programs. 


The orientation program at Lycoming College is designed to help the 
student entering college for the first time to start this new adventure 
under the most favorable circumstances. An entirely new concept of 
courses, class scheduling, and methods of instruction must be assimilated. 
Adjustments to this new experience are important. 

In order to prepare for the beginning of this experience, Lycoming 
schedules six to eight orientation sessions each lasting two and one half 
days during the summer. Each new student is required to attend one of 
these sessions accompanied by at least one parent. 

The summer program makes it possible to schedule ample time for aca- 
demic advisement, placement testing, library orientation, and registra- 
tion. The college is able to work more satisfactorily with new students in 
planning programs of study tailored to each student's vocational and 
academic interests. Each new student completes all preliminaries, in- 
cluding registration, during the summer orientation period. Textbooks 
are available for purchase and perusal prior to the opening of classes in 
the fall. 

Information regarding the dates of orientation sessions, a typical 
schedule and a pre-registration form are mailed to each new student 
admitted to Lycoming College. 

Academic Advisement 

An advantage of a small college is the rich experience gained by the 
close association of students and faculty. The counseling program at Ly- 
coming enables students to discuss various academic problems with their 
instructors, the Dean of the College, and the Dean of Student Services. 



As an entering Freshman, the student is assigned to a faculty adviser 
who meets with him as needed during the year. The Freshman finds his 
adviser willing to guide and assist in the many problems that confront a 
new college student. Upperclass students who do not feel they need a 
formally assigned adviser may assume the responsibility for meeting 
their degree requirements without the aid of an adviser. 

Personal Counseling 

The Dean of Student Services and his assistants provide advisement 
and counseling for students with emotional and adjustment problems. 
Each member of the staff is qualified to give assistance of a nontherapeu- 
tic type. Students with severe emotional disorders are referred to private 
practitioners whose services are available in the community. When a 
student uses the services of a private clinician in the community he is re- 
sponsible for the payment of his own fees. 

In addition to counseling on personal problems, vocational advisement 
and limited testing services are provided through the staff of the Student 
Services Office. 

Study Skills Center 

A series of study skills sessions are scheduled as the need arises under 
professional direction. Groups of six to ten students are enrolled for a 
series of six to ten hours in each session. They include sessions on reading 
skills, test-taking, note-taking, psychological blocks to studying, etc. 

Reading Improvement Course 

A course designed to improve reading skills is ofifeied at various times 
during the academic year. Skilled instructors teach students how to im 
prove reading speed and comprehension in short courses which span a 
six-week period — four one-hour periods each week. A student who is 
deficient in reading skills may sign up for this course on a voluntary 
hisis. The charge rs $50.00. Information is sent to the students during the 

Career Counseling and Placement Service 

The Career Counseling and Placement Service offers assistance to all 
students in the selection of appropriate career objectives and job place- 
ment through the provision of information and counseling on an indi- 
vidual basis, seminars on vocationally related topics, including the 


preparation of resumes, interviewing techniques, self-evaluation tech- 
niques, etc. The office will also work with the academic departments to 
develop information on employment opportunities for a person majoring 
in a particular subject field, and will cooperate with faculty in assisting 
students who are planning for professional and graduate schools. 

The Placement Office, located on first floor of Long Hall, assists the 
student in each of the following areas: 

1. Securing part-time employment on the campus and in the com- 

2. Providing information about graduate school programs, scholar- 
ships, and assistantships 

3. Offering information on vocational opportunities, employer litera- 
ture, job interviews, government service, and other data helpful to 

4. Providing information about summer job opportunities 

5. The college maintains an active teacher placement service for each 
education graduate. Each year many districts send representatives 
to the campus to interview prospective elementary and secondary 
teachers. Over 3500 positions in the eastern states are listed yearly 
in the Education Office. 

By providing on-campus interviews with selected employers recruiting on 
college campuses and by sending student credentials to prospective em- 
ployers, the Placement Office opens broader vocational opportunities to 
graduates seeking employment. 

Provisions for Veterans 

Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program for veterans 
under Federal Public Laws 550, 634, and 894. 


Single students who do not reside at home are required to live in the 
college residence halls and eat their meals in the college dining room. 
Special diets cannot be provided. Some upperclass students are permitted 
to live off" campus when there is a shortage of space in the residence halls. 
Exceptions to these regulations for freshmen can be approved only for 
the purpose of working for room and/or board or living with relatives. 
Requests for exceptions must be submitted in writing to the Assistant 
Dean of Student Services-Housing. The petition must include the name 
of the householder and the address where the student wishes to live. 


Members and pledges of social fraternities are required to live in the 
Fraternity Residence when space is available. All fraternity members eat 
their meals in the college dining room, except those living in privately 
owned fraternity houses. 

Residents furnish their own linens, towels, blankets, bedspreads, and 

Linens, towels, and blankets may be rented from the Merit Laundry & 
Dry Cleaning Co. Information is sent to all resident students concerning 
this service following their assignment to a room. 

All students who do not have permission to live oflf-campus must sign 
a room agreement form, agreeing to observe the rules and regulations for 
resident students. Agreements will be sent to all freshmen following the 
payment of their advance deposit. Upperclassmen will receive the agree- 
ments and rules and regulations each Spring. 

Because of the inability of the College to predict enrollments by sex, 
it may be necessary to change assignments of halls, on occasion, from 
women to men. The college reserves the right to do so whenever neces- 
sary, and such change will not invalidate the room rental agreement. 

Women's Residence 

Resident women currently live in Rich Hall, Crever Hall, North Hall, 
or Forrest Hall. Rooms are arranged in suites of two rooms with two or 
three students living in each room. Each suite has private bath facilities. 
Laundry facilities are located in all women's dormitories. Lounges are 
located on the first floor of each residence hall. 

All resident women students are members of the Resident Women's 
Association of Lycoming College. They establish standards and regula- 
tions for community living, in cooperation with the College student 
personnel staff, and endeavor to assist each new student in her adjustment 
to living in a college dormitory. 

Men's Residence 

Resident men currently live in Wesley Hall, Asbury Hall, Skeath Hall 
and the Fraternity Residence. Upperclassmen have priority in assignment 
of rooms. Rooms for freshmen are assigned according to the date the 
room agreement form is returned to the housing office. 

All rooms are for double occupancy. Rooms are furnished with a single 
bed, pillow, desk, desk chair, and a dresser for each occupant. The furni- 
ture is built into the room, and a light is provided over the desk. Window 
shades are provided in all rooms. It is advisable to wait until after arriv- 
ing on the campus to purchase draperies and bedspreads. 


Standards of Conduc t 

The college expects all of its students to accept the responsibility re- 
quired of citizens in a free democratic society. The rules and regulations 
of the college are designed to protect the rights of every member of the 
community against encroachment by individuals. The limitations which 
are imposed upon the activities of individuals are established for the 
common good of the entire college community. 

Students who are unable to demonstrate that they can accept this re- 
sponsibility or are antagonistic to the spirit and general purpose of the 
college, or fail to abide by the regulations established by the college may 
be dismissed or requested to leave the college at any time. Further, at the 
end of any term or semester the College may deny a student the privilege 
of attendmg any subsequent term or semester when the administration 
deems this to be in the best interests of the College. In addition to the 
regulations published here, specific rules are furnished each student in the 

The consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages on campus or at 
any college function is prohibited. Detailed information regarding 
the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are published in the 
Handbook of Rules and Regulations. 

Lycoming College does not condone the illegal use of drugs by its stu- 
dents. A detailed statement regarding the policy on drugs is published in 
the Guidepost. 

Gambling, cheating and stealing are totally inconsistent with Lycom- 
ing standards. Students who cannot accept the prohibition of such be- 
havior should not apply. Although the adherence to proper conduct is an 
individual responsibility it is a group responsibility as well. It is encum- 
bent on all Lycoming students that they prevail upon their fellow stu- 
dents to conduct themselves honorably for the collective good. 

It is assumed that a willingness to accept these restrictions is implicit in 
the acceptance of membership in the Lycoming College community. 


Resident students of the college who have automobiles or other motor 
operated vehicles must register all such vehicles with the college. Parking 
privileges on the campus are limited to those persons with registered 


No resident student may keep firearms, ammunition, or explosive de- 
vices in the place of his residence or stored in an automobile on the cam- 
pus. Facilities for storing firearms for hunting and target purposes are 


Residence Halls 

Residence hall students are responsible for the furnishings and the 
condition of their rooms. The college reserves the right to enter and 
inspect any of its property, or the property of a room resident for reasons 
of damage, health, safety, or to determine whether violation of its rules or 
the law are taking place or have occurred. Charges will be assessed for 
damages to rooms, doors, furniture, and comrnonly used areas. 

Residence hall students are expected to vacate their rooms during the 
vacation periods when the halls are closed and not later than 24 hours 
following their last examinations, except for graduating seniors. 

Regulations regarding quiet hours for study are established by the 
appropriate residence hall councils and are published in the Residence 
Halls' Handbook and on the bulletin boards in the halls. 

Room visitation by members of the opposite sex is permitted only in 
the Men's Residence Halls during hours established by the College. 
Room visitation in Women's Residence Halls is permitted only during 
scheduled open houses, which must be supervised or chaperoned. 

Money and Valuables 

The college accepts no responsibility for loss of valuables due to theft, 
fire, or other causes. Students may deposit money in the Treasurer's 
Office. Withdrawals are permitted during office hours. 


Students who change their marital status are requested to notify the 
Office of Student Services prior to their marriage. 

Married students may live in the college residence halls only with 
special permission. 

Health Services 

Medical History and Physical Examination 

Each student entering the college is required to submit a medical 
history record and a physical examination form prior to arriving on the 
campus. The parent or guardian of each student under 21 years of age 
must sign the health record which authorizes the college health author- 
ities to give emergency medical treatment according to good medical 
practice. In the event an operation or other treatment is required for a 
serious accident or illness, the College Physician will always secure prior 
parental consent if the circumstances permit. 

Exemption, for medical reasons, from participation in physical activity 
associated with physical education may be granted only by the College 
Physician. This exemption is based upon the medical history, report of 
the student's physician, and a physical examination by the College 

Infirmary Service 

The college maintains an infirmary, located in Rich Hall, which is 
staffed with registered nurses twenty-four hours a day five days a week 
and from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Weekend 
service after 4:00 p.m. is available at the Williamsport Hospital Emer- 
gency Room through the Emergency Care Physicians Association, at the 
expense of the student. The College Physician is on call when needed. 
Normal medical treatment by the Health Service Staff at the college 
infirmary is free of charge. However, special medications, x-rays, 
surgery, care of major accidents, immunizations, examinations for 
glasses, physician's calls other than in the infirmary, referrals for treat- 
ment by specialists, and special nursing service, etc., are not included in 
the free infirmary service. 

Accident and Sickness Insurance 

All resident students are required to purchase the Accident and Sick- 
ness Group Insurance Plan of the college for the academic year, unless 
they can present evidence that they are covered under some other health 
insurance program. Non-resident students may participate in the College 
Group Insurance Plan on a voluntary basis. If a student becomes in- 
eligible under another plan because of age, he must enter the college 
program in the semester in which he loses his other coverage. The in- 
surance plan will also be available for twelve-month coverage on a 
voluntary basis for all students. Information concerning the plan and 
its benefits will be sent to all students during the summer.

Established Interdisciplinary Majors (EIM) 

CO-ORDINATOR— Assistant Professor Feldmann 

The Accounting-Mathematics InterdiscipUnary Major is designed to 
offer, within a Hberal arts framework, courses which will aid students 
in constructing mathematical models for accounting decision making. 
The student will obtain a substantial background in mathematics and a 
working knowledge in accounting. 

Majors will be only four courses short of a math major and three 
courses short of an accounting major. Required courses in accounting 
are: Elementary, Intermediate. Cost and Budgetary Accounting Theory. 
In Mathematics they are: Analytic Geometry and Calculus I. II. and III; 
and Modern Algebra II; plus two courses from Differential Equations, 
Introduction to Numerical Analysis, and Mathematic Statistics I and II. 
Business courses required are Legal Principles I and II. Recommended 
courses include: Computer Science, Introduction to Statistics, Financial 
Management. Statistics Applied to Business. Insurance. Principles of 
Economics, Industrial Psychology, Social Psychology, and Introduction 
to Sociology. 

CO-ORDINATOR — Associate Professor Maples 

This major recognizes literature as a distinct discipline beyond national 
boundaries and combines the study of any two literatures in the areas of 
English. French. German, Russian, and Spanish. Students can thus 
explore two literatures widely and intensively at the upper levels of 
course offerings within each of the respective departments while develop- 
ing and applying skills in foreign languages. The major prepares for 
graduate study in either of the two literatures studied or in Comparative 

The major requires six literature courses beyond the survey level, 
equally divided between the two literatures concerned. Beyond these six, 
the major must include at least two additional courses from among those 
either department designates as counting toward its departmental major. 
Any prerequisite courses in the respective departments (for example: 
English 20, 21, 34, 35; French 33; German 33. 34; Russian 33, 34; 
Spanish 33, 34, 35, 36) should be taken during the Freshman and 
Sophomore years. In general, two of the major courses in each depart- 
ment should be period courses. The third course, taken either as a regular 



course or as independent study, may have as its subject another period; 
a particular author, genre, or Hterary theme; or some other unifying 
approach or idea. Students should design their program in consultation 
with a faculty member from each of the literatures concerned. Programs 
for the major must be approved by both departments. 

CO-ORDINATOR — Assistant Professor Lutz 

The Near Eastern Culture and Archeology interdisciplinary major is 
designed to acquaint the student with the "cradle of Western civilization", 
both in its ancient and modern aspects. Majors will complete a minimum 
of eight to ten unit courses related to the Near East. 

Required courses are described in their departmental sections and 

1. Three courses (semesters) in language and culture from: 

A. Old Testament Faith and History (Religion 13) 

B. Religions of the World — Islam and Judaism (Religion 24) 

C. History and Religion of the Ancient Near East (Religion 26) 

D. Culture of the Ancient Near East (Religion 27) 

E. Advanced Old Testament Topics (Religion 36) 

F. Judaism and Christianity in the New Testament (Religion 40) 

G. Two semesters of foreign language (Hebrew 11, 12; or independ- 
ent study of related Semitic languages.) 

2. Two courses (semesters) in archeology from: 

A. Palestinian Archeology (Religion 46) 

B. Field Palestinian Archeology (Religion 47) 

C. Advanced Palestinian Archeology (Religion 48) 

3. Two courses (semesters) in related departments, such as: Art. 

History, Political Science, Religion, and Sociology-Anthro- 
pology. These two courses, usually taken in the Junior or Senior 
years, can be independent study. Topics should be related either 
to the ancient or the modern Near East and must be approved in 
advance by the committee supervising the interdisciplinary study. 
Other courses may be required by the supervisory committee but not 
beyond requiring ten courses in the major. The number of courses taken 
within this program applicable toward fulfilling the College distribution 
requirements will vary according to the selection of courses made by 
the student. 


CO-ORDINATOR — Assistant Professor Winston 

The Soviet Area Studies major is an interdisciplinary major designed 
to offer, within the framework of a liberal arts education, intensified 


Study of the Soviet Union, communism, and related matters. The pro- 
gram enables the student to acquire a broader perspective of the USSR 
than can generally be obtained within one discipline. 

Required courses are described in their departmental sections and 

1. Six semesters of Russian language and/or literature beyond the 
elementary level. 

2. Topics in Russian and Soviet History (History 46 and 47). 

3. Two courses (semesters) of Senior Seminar on the USSR. 

4. Four courses (semesters) from: 
Comparative Economic Systems (Economics 23) 
Government of the Soviet Union (Political Science 36) 
Foreign Policy of the Soviet Union (Political Science 37) 
Social and Political Philosophy (Philosophy 22) 
Modern Revolutions (History 36) 

Under this program, up to nine courses required to satisfy the college 
distribution requirements can be completed from the above courses. 

Individual Interdisciplinary Majors (IIM) 

REGISTRAR — Mr. Glunk 

Any student eligible to apply for a major may apply for an inter- 
disciplinary major to the Committee on Interdisciplinary Majors via the 
Registrar, who will provide a copy of the Guidelines For Interdisciplinary 
Majors and the other necessary forms. 

Individual Interdisciplinary majors normally involve two or more 
departments which each already offer a major. An IIM is normally 
comprised of a minimum of ten courses beyond those satisfying the 
distribution requirements. If the IIM involves departments not included 
in meeting the distribution requirements, then the ten courses may 
include elementary courses usually used to satisfy distribution require- 
ments. However, the student is expected to take at least six courses at 
the advanced (junior or senior) level as determined in consultation with 
his advisors. Changes in this set of courses comprising the major, which 
may be desired or needed as the student progresses, must be authorized 
by the Committee on Interdisciplinary Majors. 

An IIM student is advised by a committee composed of one professor 
from each department involved. The student chooses the chairman who 
functions as the advisor of record, maintains the student's records, etc. 
The Committee on Interdisciplinary Majors must certify the successful 
completion of the IIM for graduation. The student's transcript will show 
Interdisciplinary major in (Departments), for example: Interdis- 
ciplinary major in Urban Studies (History, Psychology, Sociology). 


Associate Professor: Richmond (Chairman) 

Instructor: Huber

the previous year by the juniors in consultation with the Department, and as far as 
possible will represent the broad spectrum of English and American literature. The 
primary responsibility for the seminar will rest with the students: faculty will be super- 
visors rather than teachers, and not necessarily experts on any given work. 
Majors in English will be expected to know the works in advance — either through 
course work or summer reading. The seminar will consider kinds of critical approaches 
to these works and will demand further reading, as well as reports by the students. A 
work may be considered in its historical context (political, philosophical, occasional 
background); in the context of other works by the author (for both thematic and 
formal comparison) ; in the context of other works of the same period ; and in the con- 
text of the entire spectrum of English and American literature for structural and 
generic studies. Concurrently the student will become acquainted with examples of 
practical and theoretical criticism which exemplify these various approaches.
