Welcome to Lycoming 



Lycoming is an independent, coeduca- 
tional college dedicated to providing the 
type of learning that can be used for a 
lifetime — the liberal arts and sciences. 

Lycoming's academic relevance 
derives from its enduring commitment to 
the value of this type of education, as 
offered by a superior teaching faculty. 
The College's principal aim is to help 
students develop a central core of inte- 
grated values, skill, information, and 
strategies while they learn to communi- 
cate, reason, make decisions, under- 
stand, and use their imagination. This 
type of education can lead to productive 
and fulfilling lives in many fields while 
allowing lifelong growth and develop- 
ment. 

Lycoming awards bachelor of arts 
degrees in 31 major fields, a bachelor of 
fine arts degree in sculpture, and a 
bachelor of science degree in nursing. 
The curriculum is challenging. Because 
it is built upon the two principles of the 



liberal arts known as distribution and 
concentration, it allows students to study 
in breadth and depth. 

Students who have special interests 
not met entirely by a major field can 
design their own majors. Or, if they are 
interested in teaching, medicine, law, 
dentistry, or the ministry, they can take 
courses needed to enter their advanced 
study. 

Students also can study engineering, 
forestry or environmental studies, 
podiatric medicine, optometry, medical 
technology, and sculpture through 
cooperative programs operated by 
Lycoming with other colleges and uni- 
versities. Or, they can study abroad or in 
Philadelphia, Pa., Washington, D.C., or 
New York City through other off- 
campus study programs. 

Most students complete their program 
of study in four years, usually by taking 
four courses each fall and spring semes- 
ter. But students also can take one course 




during Lycoming's May term, or two 
courses during the summer term. 

Recognizing students' concerns about 
careers, Lycoming offers extensive 
counseling through the Career Develop- 
ment Center and advisory committees for 
prelaw, prehealth professions, and pre- 
medical students. The College also oper- 
ates a wide-ranging internship program 
that allows students to earn academic 
credit while working at area businesses, 
government offices, and nonprofit orga- 
nizations. 

Lycoming's ratio of students to faculty 
is 15 to one, which means that most 
classes are small and there is abundant 
opportunity for individual attention. All 
faculty members teach. More than 70 
percent of Lycoming's faculty hold the 
highest degrees in their fields from the 
nation's outstanding colleges and univer- 
sities. And, faculty members take their 
advising seriously. They care about stu- 
dents, and encourage and guide them so 
they receive the education they want. 

Eighteen buildings sit on Lycoming's 
main campus. Most of them have been 
built since 1950. The modem buildings 
include the eight residence halls; the 
library; the Academic Center, which 
houses the Arena Theatre, planetarium, 
computer center, and art gallery; the stu- 
dent union; the physical education/ 
recreation center, including a six-lane, 
25-yard pool; a completely renovated 
fine arts center with excellent facilities to 
accommodate sculpture, painting, 
drawing, printmaking, ceramics and 
photography; and a music building, 
which houses individual music practice 
rooms and an electronic-music studio. 

Lycoming houses approximately 900 
of its 1 ,250 students in the residence 
halls, which include double and single 
rooms. Most students find the campus 
friendly and comfortable, with all of the 
buildings easy to reach from anywhere 
on campus. Students come from a variety 
of economic classes, religious beliefs, 
and geographic areas, although most stu- 
dents call Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or 
New York their home. They work and 
play together in an atmosphere of respect 
and tolerance. 

The College offers a variety of extra- 



curricular activities. The 1987-88 Artist 
Series includes the Broadway play 
CATS, The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, 
Horacio Guttierez, pianist with The 
Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmon- 
ic, and Late Great Ladies of Jazz and 
Blues. Rich in diversity, previous Artist 
Series have brought satirist Mark Rus- 
sell, internationally acclaimed mime 
Marcel Marceau, and the successful 
Broadway musical On Your Toes to 
Williamsport. Admission to all Artist 
Series events is free for Lycoming stu- 
dents. Student government groups help 
to plan campus activities and social 
events. Numerous clubs, honor societ- 
ies, social fraternities and sororities, the 
student newspaper, yearbook and liter- 
ary magazine, and the band and widely 
acclaimed choir meet other student inter- 
ests. Students who like to perform or 
compete can act on the Arena Theatre 
stage or play on intercollegiate or intra- 
mural sports teams. Intercollegiate teams 
for men include football, soccer, basket- 
ball, wrestling, tennis, golf, swimming, 
track and field, and cross country. Inter- 
collegiate teams for women include 
basketball, tennis, field hockey, swim- 



ming, track and field, and cross country. 

In addition, students who like hiking, 
backpacking, skiing, camping, fishing, 
hunting, kayaking, spelunking, and 
other outdoor sports will find Lycom- 
ing's location ideal. 

Lycoming is situated on a slight 
prominence near downtown Williams- 
port, a small city nestled along the West 
Branch of the Susquehanna River in 
northcentral Pennsylvania's rolling hills 
and valleys. Yet, the College is within a 
four-hour drive of metropolitan centers 
such as New York City, Philadelphia, 
Pittsburgh, Washington. D.C., Balti- 
more, Syracuse, Rochester, and the New 
Jersey shore points. The Williamsport- 
metro area is home to about 75 ,000 per- 
sons. 

Lycoming enjoys a relationship with 
The United Methodist Church. It sup- 
ports the Methodist tradition of provid- 
ing an education for persons of all faiths. 

Fully accredited, Lycoming is a mem- 
ber of the Middle States Association of 
Colleges and Schools, and the University 
Senate of The United Methodist Church. 
It is a member of the Association of 
American Colleges, the Pennsylvania 



Association of Colleges and Universi- 
ties, the Commission for Independent 
Colleges and Universities, the National 
Commission on Accrediting, and the 
National Association of Schools and 
Colleges of The United Methodist 
Church. 

HISTORY 

Lycoming College was founded in 1812 
as the Williamsport Academy, an 
elementary and secondary school. 
Thirty-six years later, the academy 
became the Williamsport Dickinson 
Seminary under the patronage of The 
Methodist Episcopal Church. The semi- 
nary operated as a private boarding 
school until 1929, when a college curri- 
culum was added and it became the Wil- 
liamsport Dickinson Seminary and 
Junior College. In 1947, the junior col- 
lege became a four- year degree-granting 
college of liberal arts and sciences. It 
adopted the name Lycoming, derived 
from the Indian word "lacomic," 
meaning "Great Stream." The word 
Lycoming has been common to north- 
central Pennsylvania since colonial days. 




Academic Program 



THE BACHELOR OF 
ARTS DEGREE 

Lycoming is committed to the principle 
that a liberal arts education is the best 
hope for an enlightened citizenry. Con- 
sequently, the bachelor of arts degree is 
conferred upon the student who has com- 
pleted an educational program incorpor- 
ating the two principles of the liberal arts 
known as distribution and concentration. 
The objective of the distribution princi- 
ple is to insure that the student achieves 
breadth in learning through the study of 
the major dimensions of human inquiry: 
the humanities, the social sciences, and 
the natural sciences. The objective of the 
concentration principle is to provide 
depth of learning through completion of 
a program of study in a given discipline 
or subject area known as the major. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE 
BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE 

Every degree candidate is expected to 
complete the following requirements in 
order to qualify for graduation: 

— complete the distribution 
program. 

— complete a major consisting of at 
least eight courses while achieving 
a minimum grade point average of 
2.0 in those courses. 

— earn one year of credit in physical 
education. All students must 
demonstrate competence in swim- 
ming. (Medical exemptions may 
be granted by the College physi- 
cian after an examination and 
review of the student's medical 
history and family physician's 
report.) 

— pass a minimum of 128 semester 
hours (32 unit courses) with a mini-

All exemptions or waivers of specific 
requirements are made by the Committee 
on Academic Standing. 

THE BACHELOR OF 
FINE ARTS DEGREE 

The bachelor of fine arts degree is speci- 
fically designed to train professional 
artists. The BFA in sculpture is a synthe- 
sis of three diverse forms of education: a 
studio art program that emphasizes the 
skills and concepts of the visual lan- 
guage; an apprenticeship that takes tech- 
nical expertise as the departure point, 
and the scholastic method employed in 
both art history and the general- 
education component. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR 
THE BACHELOR OF 
FINE ARTS DEGREE 

Every BFA degree candidate is expected 
to complete the following requirements 
in order to qualify for graduation: 

— complete the 12-course Art 
Department course of study. 

— complete the distribution program.

zation apprenticeships at the John- 
son Atelier Technical Institute of 
Sculpture. 

— earn one year of credit in physical 
education. All students must 
demonstrate competence in swim- 
ming. (Medical exemptions may 
be granted by the College physi- 
cian after an examination and 
review of the student's medical 
history and family physician's 
report.) 

— complete in residence the final 
eight courses offered for the degree 
at Lycoming. 

— satisfy all financial obligations 
incurred at the College. 



— have a public exhibition of original 
art work and make an oral defense. 

THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE 
IN NURSING DEGREE 

The program of study leading to the 
bachelor of science in nursing degree is 
designed to prepare men and women as 
beginning practitioners of professional 
nursing, qualified for first-level posi- 
tions in a variety of health settings and 
for graduate study in nursing. Upon 
satisfactory completion of the program, a 
graduate is eligible to write the State 
Board of Nursing examination for licen- 
sure as a registered nurse. The goal of the 
program is to develop a liberally edu- 
cated and self-directed individual who is 
prepared to contribute to the welfare of 
the nation through the practice of profes- 
sional nursing which supports the prom- 
otion and restoration of health of indivi- 
duals and families in a variety of settings.

2.0, including the required May 
term following the junior year. 

— complete the distribution require- 
ments for the BSN degree.

WRITING ACROSS 

THE CURRICULUM PROGRAM 

I. Purpose 

The Lycoming College Writing 
Across the Curriculum Program has been 
developed in response to the conviction 
that writing skill promotes intellectual 
growth and is a hallmark of the educated 
person. The program has therefore been 
designed to achieve two major, interre- 
lated objectives; 

{ 1 ) to enhance student learning in 
general and subject mastery in parti- 
cular, and 

(2) to develop students" abilities to 
communicate clearly. In this prog- 
ram students are given opportunities 
to write in a variety of contexts and in 
a substantial number of courses, in 
which they receive faculty guidance 
and reinforcement. 

II. Program Requirements 

In order to graduate from Lycoming 
all students must complete the following 
writing requirements: 

A. English 005, Developmental 
English, or exemption from the 
course. 

B. English 106, Composition and 
one other English course. 

C. A writing component in all distri- 
bution courses completed at 
Lycoming. 

D. Two courses designated as 
writing-intensive, or "W" 
courses. 

(1) Successful completion of 
English 106 is a prerequisite 
for enrollment in writing- 
intensive courses. 

(2) All courses designated "W" 
are numbered 200 or above. 

(3) Each student must complete 
one "W" course from among 
those offered by the major 
department, or, with depart- 
mental approval, from a 



related department. The other 
"W" course completed must 
be from a department other 
than the major department. In 
the case of students with 
multiple majors, one "W" 
course must be completed 
from one of those majors. 
The second course may be 
taken in one of the student's 
other majors. 

(4) Students should take one 
"W" course during the 
sophomore year and one 
during the junior year — 
though other sequences are 
possible and may in certain 
circumstances be advisable. 

(5) A writing intensive course 
may not duplicate a course 
taken to satisfy II. B. 



THE DISTRIBUTION PROGRAM 

A course can be used to satisfy only one 
distribution requirement. Courses for 
which a grade of "S" is recorded may 
not be used toward the fulfillment of the 
distribution requirements. (Refer to page 
10 for an explanation of the grading 
system. ) A course in any of the following 
distribution requirements refers to a 
full-unit (four semester hours) course 
taken at Lycoming, any appropriate 
combination of fractional unit courses 
taken at Lycoming which accumulate to 
four semester hours, or any single course 
of three or more semester hours trans- 
ferred from another institution. For the 
BSN degree, see special modified distri- 
bution requirements on page 7. 

English — Students are required to 
demonstrate competence in basic writing 
skills and to pass English 106 and one 
other unit of English. Competence in 
basic writing skills may be demonstrated 
either by passing the Achievement 
Examination in English Composition or 
by earning a Satisfactory in English 005. 
A student must demonstrate this compe- 
tence before being permitted to enroll in 
English 106. Unless impossible because 
of failure to complete English 005, 



English 106 must be taken during the 
freshman year; English 1 06 or consent of 
instructor is required before enrolling in 
any other English course. Students may 
choose any course from the department's 
offerings to satisfy the requirement for 
another unit in English.

required to pass two courses on the inter- 
mediate or higher course level. Place- 
ment at the appropriate course level will

Department of Foreign Languages and 
Literatures. Students who have com- 
pleted two or more years of a given 
language in high school are not admitted 
for credit to the elementary course in the 
same foreign language except by written

higher competence on the Mathematics 
Placement Examination, students may 
reduce the requirement to two units of 
mathematical science. No more than one 
unit may be taken in computer science. 

Religion or Philosophy — Students 
are required to pass two courses in either 
religion or philosophy. Any two religion 
courses may be used to fulfill the

THE MAJOR 

Students are required to complete a series 
of courses in one departmental or inter- 
disciplinary (established or individual) 
major. Specific course requirements for 
each major offered by the College are 
listed in the curriculum section of this 
catalog. Students must earn a 2.0 or 
higher grade-point average in those 
courses stipulated as comprising the 
major. (This requirement is not met by 
averaging the grades for all courses com- 
pleted in the major department.) Stu- 
dents must declare a major by the begin- 
ning of their junior year. Departmental 
and established interdisciplinary majors 
are declared in the Office of the Regis- 
trar, whereas individual interdisciplinary 
majors must be approved by the Com- 
mittee on Curriculum Development. Stu- 
dents may complete more than one 
major, each of which will be recorded on 



the transcript. Students may be removed 
from major status if they are not making 
satisfactory progress in the major. This 
action is taken by the Dean of the College 
upon the recommendation of the depart- 
ment, coordinating committee (for 
established interdisciplinary majors), or 
Curriculum Development Committee 
(for individual interdisciplinary majors). 
The decision of the Dean of the College 
may be appealed to the Academic Stand- 
ing Committee by the student involved or 
the recommending department or com- 
mittee.

Individual Interdisciplinary Majors 

— Students may design a major that is 
unique to their needs and objectives and 
which combines course work in more 
than one department. This major is 
developed in consultation with the stu- 
dent's faculty advisor and with a panel of 
faculty members from each of the spon- 
soring departments. The application is 
acted upon by the Curriculum Develop- 
ment Committee. The major normally 
consists of 10 courses beyond those 
taken to satisfy the distribution require- 
ments. Students are expected to com- 
plete at least six courses at the junior or 
senior level. Examples of individual 
interdisciplinary majors are Racial and 
Cultural Minorities, Illustration in the 
Print Medium, Environmental Law, 
Advertising, Art/History, ArtyBusiness, 
Human Behavior, and Images of Man. 

Major in Sculpture Leading to Bache- 
lor of Fine Arts Degree — Through a 
cooperative program with the Johnson 
Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture, 
Mercerville, New Jersey, students may 
earn a BFA degree in sculpture. The 
major consists of a core academic prog- 
ram, a course of study in art, elective 
courses, and an apprenticeship at the 
Johnson Atelier. 

THE MINOR 

The College awards two kinds of minors, 
departmental and interdisciplinary, in 
recognition of concentrated course work 
in an area other than the student's major. 
All minors are subject to the following 
limitations: 

— a minor must include at least 
two courses which are not counted 
in the student's major. 

— a student may receive at most two 
minors. 

— students with two majors may 
receive only one minor: students 
with three majors may not receive a 
minor. 

— students may not receive a minor in 
their major discipline unless their 
major discipline is Art and the 
minor is Art History. (A discipline 



is any course of study in which a 
student can major. Tracks within 
majors are not separate discip- 
lines.) 

— a student may not receive a minor 
unless his average in the courses 
which count for his minor is a mini- 
mum of 2.00. 

— courses taken S/U may not be 
counted toward a minor. 

Students must declare their intention to 
minor by signing a form available in the 
Registrar's Office, getting required 
faculty signatures, and returning the 
completed form to the Records Room. 
When students complete a minor, the 
title will be indicated on their official 
transcript. Students must meet the 
requirements for the minor which are in

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

One advantage of a small college is the 
rich experience gained by the close asso- 
ciation of students and faculty. The 
advisement program at Lycoming 
enables students to discuss academic and 
other problems as well as opportunities 
with faculty advisors, instructors, and 
the staffs of the Dean of the College and 
the Dean of Student Services. 

During the summer orientation, fresh- 
men are assigned a faculty advisor who is 
prepared to assist new students with the 
challenges of an unfamiliar social and 
academic environment. All students are 
required to have a faculty advisor. When 
students have declared a major, they are 
then assigned an advisor from within the 



major department or program. 

Although the advisement program is 
an important part of the Lycoming 
academic experience, students are 
expected to accept full responsibility for 
their academic programs, including 
satisfactory completion of program and 
College-wide requirements. 

Special advising for selected profes- 
sions is provided by the health, legal, and 
theological professions advisory com- 
mittees. Students interested in these pro- 
fessions should register with the appro- 
priate committee during their first 
semester of enrollment at Lycoming or 
immediately after they decide to enter 
these professions. 

Preparation for Educational Profes- 
sions — Lycoming College believes that 
the liberal arts provide the best prepara- 
tion for future teachers, thus all educa- 
tion students complete a liberal arts 
major in addition to the certification 
requirements. Students can be certified 
in elementary education or one or more 
of the following secondary areas: art 
(K-12), biology, chemistry, English, 
French, general science (with biology or 
astronomy/physics tracks), German, 
mathematics, music (K-12), physics, 
social studies, and Spanish. All teacher- 
education programs are approved by the 
Pennsylvania Department of Education. 
Pennsylvania certificates are recognized 
in most other states either through reci- 
procal agreements or by transcript evalu- 
ation. 

Preparation for Health Professions 

— The program of pre-professional edu- 
cation for the health professions (allo- 
pathic, dental, osteopathic, pediatric and 
veterinary medicine, optometry, and 
pharmacy) is organized around a sound 
foundation in biology, chemistry, 
mathematics, and physics and a wide 
range of subject matter from the humani- 
ties, social sciences, and fine arts. At 
least three years of undergraduate study 
is recommended before entry into a pro- 
fessional school; the normal procedure is 
to complete the bachelor of arts degree. 
Students interested in one of the health 
professions or in an allied health career 



should make their intentions known to 
the admissions office when applying and 
to the Health Professions Advisory Com- 
mittee (HPAC) during their first semes- 
ter. The committee advises students con- 
cerning preparation for and application 
to health-professions schools. All pre- 
health professions students are invited to 
join the student Pre-Health Professions 
Association . ( See also descriptions of the 
nursing program and of the cooperative 
programs in pediatric medicine, 
optometry, and medical technology.) 

Preparation for Legal Professions 

— Lycoming offers a strong academic 
preparation for students interested in law 
as a profession. Admission to law school 
is not predicated upon a particular major 
or area of study; rather, a student is 
encouraged to design a course of study 
(traditional or interdisciplinary major) 
which is of personal interest and signifi- 
cance. While no specific major is recom- 
mended, there are certain skills of partic- 
ular relevance to the pre-law student: 
clear writing, analytical thinking, and 
language comprehension. These skills 
should be developed during the under- 
graduate years. 

Pre-law students should register with 
the Legal Professions Advisory Com- 
mittee (LPAC) upon entering Lycoming 
and should join the Pre-Law Society on 
campus. LPAC assists the pre-law stu- 
dent through advisement, compilation of 
recommendations, and dissemination of 
information and materials about law and 
the legal profession. It sponsors Pre- 
LSAT workshops to help prepare stu- 
dents for the law boards. The Pre-Law 
Society has sponsored films, speakers, 
and field trips, including visits to law 
school campuses. 

Preparation for Theological Profes- 
sions — The Theological Professions 
Advisory Commiteee (TPAC) acts as a 
"center" for students, faculty, and cler- 
gy to discuss the needs of students who 
want to prepare themselves for the mini- 
stry, religious education, advanced 
training in religion, or related vocations. 
Also, it may help coordinate internships 
for students who desire practical experi- 



ence in the parish ministry or related 
areas. Upon entering Lycoming, stu- 
dents should register with TPAC if they 
plan to investigate the religious voca- 
tions. 

In general, students preparing to 
attend a theological seminary should 
examine the suggestions set down by the 
Association of Theological Schools 
(available from TPAC). Recommended 
is a broad program in the liberal arts, a 
major in one of the humanities (English, 
history, languages, literature, philoso- 
phy, religion) or one of the social sci- 
ences (American studies, criminal jus- 
tice, economics, international studies, 
political science, psychology, 
sociology-anthropology), and a variety 
of electives. Students preparing for a 
career in religious education should 
major in religion and elect five or six 
courses in psychology, education, and 
sociology. This program of study will 
qualify students to work as an education- 
al assistant or a director of religious edu- 
cation after graduate study in a theologi- 
cal seminary. 

REGISTRATION 

During the registration period, students 
select their courses for the next semester 
and register their course selections in the 
Office of the Registrar. Course selection 
is made in consultation with the student's 
faculty advisor in order to insure that the 
course schedule is consistent with Col- 
lege requirements and student goals. 
After the registration period, any change 
in the student's course schedule must be 
approved by both the faculty advisor and 
Office of the Registrar. Students may not 
receive credit for courses in which they 
are not formally registered. 

During the first five days of classes, 
students may drop any course without 
any record of such enrollment appearing 
on the permanent record, and they may 
add any course that is not closed. Stu- 
dents wishing to drop a course between 
the fifth day and the 1 2th week of classes 
must secure a withdrawal form from the 
Office of the Registrar, which is pre- 
sented to the instructor of the course in 
question, who assigns a withdrawal 



grade based on the level of the student's 
performance from the beginning of the 
course to the date of withdrawal. With- 
drawal grades are not computed in the 
grade point average. Students may not 
withdraw from courses after the 12th 
week of a semester and the comparable 
period during the May and summer 
terms. 

In two-credit ( '/: unit) courses meeting 
only during the last half of any semester, 
students may drop/add for a period of 
five days, effective with the mid-term 
date shown on the academic calendar. 
Withdrawal from half-semester courses 
with a withdrawal grade may occur 
within six weeks of the beginning of the 
course. It is understood that the period of 
time at the beginning of the semester and 
at the mid-point of the semester will be 
identical, for example, a p)eriod of five 
days as indicated above. 

THE UNIT COURSE SYSTEM 

Instruction at Lycoming College is 
organized, with few exceptions, on a 
departmental basis. Most courses are 
unit courses, meaning that each course 
taken is considered to be equivalent to 
four semester hours of credit. Exceptions 
occur in applied music and theatre practi- 
cum courses, which are offered for either 
one-half or one semester hour of credit, 
and in departments that have elected to 
offer certain courses for the equivalent of 
two semester hours of credit. Further, 
independent studies and internships car- 
rying two semester hours of credit may 
be designed. The normal student course 
load is four courses during the fall and 
spring semesters. Students who elect to 
attend the special sessions may enroll in 
one course during the May term and one 
or two courses in the summer term. A 
student is considered full time when 
enrolled for a minimum of three courses 
during the fall or spring semesters, one 
course for the May term, and two courses 
for the summer term. Students may 
enroll in five courses during the fall and 
spring semesters if they are Lycoming 
Scholars or were admitted to the Dean's 
List at the end of the previous semester. 
Exceptions may be granted by the Dean 



of the College. Overloads are not per- 
mitted during the May and summer 
terms. 

THE SYSTEM OF GRADING 
AND REPORTING OF GRADES 

The evaluation of student performance in 
credit courses is indicated by the use of 
traditional letter symbols. These sym- 
bols and their definitions are as follows; 
A Excellent — Signifies superior 
achievement through mastery of content 
or skills and demonstration of creative 
and independent thinking. 
B High Pass — Signifies better-than- 
average achievement wherein the student 
reveals insight and understanding. 
C Pass — Signifies satisfactory 
achievement wherein the student's work 
has been of average quality and quantity. 
The student has demonstrated basic com- 
petence in the subject area and may 
enroll in additional course work. 
D Low Pass — Signifies unsatisfactory 
achievement wherein the student met 
only the minimum requirements for 
passing the course and should not con- 
tinue in the subject area without depart- 
mental advice. 

F Failing — Signifies that the student 
has not met the minimum requirements 
for passing the course. 
I Incomplete Work — Assigned in 
accordance with the restrictions of 
established academic policy. 
R A Repeated Course — Students shall 
have the option of repeating courses for 
which they already have received a pass- 
ing grade in addition to those which they 
have failed. Credit is received only once 
for the course. Grades will be averaged. 
S Passing Work, no grade assigned — 
Converted from traditional grade of A, 
B, C, or D. 

U Failing work, no grade assigned — 
converted from traditional grade of F. 
X Audit — Work as an auditor for which 
no credit is earned. 

W Withdrawal — Signifies withdrawal 
from the course early in the term when it 
cannot be determined that the student is 
passing or failing. 

WP Withdrawal, passing — The stu- 
dent was passing at the time of withdraw- 



al; no credit is earned. 
WF Withdrawal, failing — The student 
was failing at the time of withdrawal; no 
credit is earned. 

The cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) is calculated by multiplying qual- 
ity points by credits and dividing the total 
quality points by the total credits. A 
quality point is the unit of measurement 
of the quality of work done by the stu- 
dent.

The grade point average for the major 
is calculated in the same manner for the 
courses required for the major. 

A minimum of2.00 is required for the 
cumulative grade point average and for 
the grade point average in the major to 
meet the requirements for graduation. 
You cannot compute your cumulative 
GPA by averaging your semesterGPA's. 

Use of the satisfactory/unsatisfactory 
grading option is limited as follows (this 
does not apply to Education 005 and 
English 005); 

— students may enroll on an 
S/U basis in no more than one 
course per semester and no more 
than four courses during the under- 
graduate career. 

— S/U courses completed after decla- 
ration of the major may not be used 
to satisfy a requirement of that 
major, including courses required 
by the major department which are 
offered by other departments. 
(Instructor-designated courses are 
excepted from this limitation.) 



10 



courses for which a grade of S is 
recorded may not be used toward 
fulfillment of any distribution 
requirement. 

students may not enroll in English 
6 on an S/U basis, 
a course selected on an S/U basis 
which is subsequently withdrawn 
will not count toward the four- 
course limit. 

instructor-designated courses may 
be offered during the May term 
with the approval of the Dean of 
the College. Such courses are not 
counted toward the four-course 
limit. 

S/U grades are not computed in the 
grade point average, 
students electing the S/U option 
may designate a minimum accep- 
tance letter grade of A or B. If the 
letter grade actually earned by the 
student equals or exceeds this mini- 
mum, that letter grade is entered on 
the student's permanent record and 
is computed in the grade point 
average. In such a case, the course 
does not count toward the four- 
course limit. If the student does not 
indicate a minimum acceptable 
letter grade or if the letter grade 
actually earned is lower than the 
minimum designated by the stu- 
dent, the Registrar substitutes an S 
for any passing grade (A, A-, 
B-I-, B-, C-^, C-, D+, D, orD-) 
and a U for an F grade. 
• students receiving either an S or U 
grade may not be eligible for the 
Dean's List for that semester. 

- students must declare the S/U 
option before the end of the period 
during which courses may be 
added during any given semester, 
half-semester, or term. 

- instructors are not notified which 
of their students are enrolled on an 
S/U basis. 

- students electing the S/U option are 
expected to perform the same work 
as those enrolled on a regular basis. 

Incomplete grades may be given 
if, for absolutely unavoidable rea- 
sons (usually medical in nature). 



the student has not been able to 
complete the work requisite to the 
course. An incomplete grade must 
be removed within six weeks of 
the next regular semester. 

Students shall have the option 
of repeating courses for which 
they already have received a pass- 
ing grade in addition to those 
which they have failed. Recording 
of grades for all repeated courses 
shall be governed by the following 
conditions; 

— a course may be repeated 
only one time. 

— both attempts will be recorded on 
the student's transcript. 

— credit for the course will be given 
only once. 

— for the purpose of determining the 
student's GPA, the average grade 
received for the two attempts will 
be used as if it were the grade for a 
single course. 

— a repeated course will be counted 
toward the total number of unsuc- 
cessful attempts. 

ATTENDANCE 

The academic program at Lycoming is 
based upon the assumption that there is 
value in class attendance for all students. 
Individual instructors have the preroga- 
tive of establishing reasonable absence 
regulations in any course. The student is 
responsible for learning and observing 
these regulations. 

STUDENT RECORDS 

The policy regarding student educational 
records is designed to protect the privacy 
of students against unwarranted intru- 
sions and is consistent with Section 438 
of the General Education Provision Act 
(commonly known as the Family Educa- 
tional Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as 
amended). The details of the College 
policy on student records and the proce- 
dures for gaining access to student 
records are contained in the current issue 
of The Pathfinder, which is available in 
the library and the Office of the Dean of 
the College. 



ACADEMIC STANDING AND 
ACADEMIC HONESTY 

Students will be placed on academic 
probation if either the number of hours 
completed or cumulative grade point 
average falls below the following stan- 
dards: 

Semester Hours Cumulative 

(Full-time) Completed GPA 

1 12 1.66 

2 24 1.85 

3 40 1.90 

4 56 2.00 

5 72 2.00 

6 88 2.00 

7 104 2.00 

8 120 2.00 

In order to meet graduation require- 
ments, students must complete 128 cre- 
dit hours. Students who are enrolled part 
time or for fewer than the normal four 
courses per term will be expected to 
complete an equivalent proportion of 
their program each semester. 

Students will be subject to suspension 
from the College if they: 

— are on probation for two con- 
secutive semesters; 

— achieve a grade point average of 
1.00 or below during any one 
semester. 

Students will be subject to dismissal 
from the College if they; 

— can not reasonably complete all 
requirements for a degree; 

— exceed 24 semester hours of unsuc- 
cessful course attempts (grades of 
F, U, W, WP, WF, and R) except 
in the case of withdrawal for medi- 
cal or psychological reasons. 

The integrity of the academic process of 
the College requires honesty in all phases 
of the instructional program. The Col- 
lege assumes that students are committed 
to the principle of academic honesty. 
Students who fail to honor this commit- 
ment are subject to dismissal. Procedural 
guidelines and rules for the adjudication 
of cases of academic dishonesty are 



II 



printed in The Faculty Handbook and 
The Pathfiner (the student academic 
handbooic), copies of which are available 
in the library. 

TRANSFER CREDIT 

A Lycoming College student who wishes 
to satisfy any degree, distribution, major 
or minor requirement with course work 
completed at another institution must 
secure permission to study off-campus 
from the department chairperson (of each 
department in which credit will be 
awarded) and approval from the Regi- 
strar. If a course is approved for transfer 
prior to the first meeting thereof, 
Lycoming College guarantees the trans- 
fer of that course and grade. 

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION 

Advanced Placement — Entering fresh- 
men who have completed an advanced 
course while in secondary school and 
who have taken the appropriate 
advanced-placement examination of the 
College Entrance Examination Board 
(CEEB) are encouraged to apply for cre- 
dit and advanced placement at the time of 
admission. A grade of three or above is 
considered satisfactory. Students should 
inform the Registrar's Office and their 
academic advisor immediately when 
advanced placement examinations have 
been taken. 

College Level Examination Prog- 
ram (CLEP) — Students may earn col- 
lege credit for superior achievement 
through CLEP. By achieving at the 75th 
percentile or above on the General 
Examinations and the 65th percentile or 
above on approved Subject Examina- 
tions, students may earn up to 50 percent 
of the course requirements for a bachelor 
of arts degree. Although these examina- 
tions may be taken after enrollment, new 
students who are competent in a given 
area are encouraged to take the examina- 
tion of their choice during the second 
semester of their senior year so that 
Lycoming will have the test scores avail- 
able for registration advisement for the 
first semester of enrollment. Further 



information about CLEP may be 
obtained through the secondary-school 
guidance office or the Office of Admis- 
sions or the Registrar at Lycoming Col- 
lege. Students should inform the Regi- 
strar's Office and their academic advisor 
immediately when CLEP examinations 
have been taken. 

ACADEMIC HONORS 

Dean's List — Students are admitted to 
the Dean's List at the end of the fall and 
spring semesters if they have completed 
at least 15 credits with other than S/U or 
R grades, and have a minimum grade 
point average of 3.50 for the semester. 

Graduation Honors — Students are 
awarded the bachelor of arts degree, the 
bachelor of fine arts degree, or the 
bachelor of science in nursing degree 
with honors when they have earned the 
following grade point averages based on 
all courses attempted at Lycoming, with

Departmental Honors — Honors proj- 
ects are normally undertaken only in a 
student's major, and are available only to 
exceptionally well-qualified students 
who have a solid background in the area 
of the project and are capable of consid- 
erable self-direction. The prerequisites 
for registration in an honors program are 
as follows: 

— a faculty member from the 



department(s) in which the honors 
project is to be undertaken must 
agree to be the director and must 
secure departmental approval of 
the project. 

— the director, in consultation with 
the student, must convene a com- 
mittee consisting of two faculty 
members from the department in 
which the project is to be undertak- 
en, one of whom is the director of 
the project, and one faculty mem- 
ber from each of two other depart- 
ments related to the subject matter 
of the study. 

— the honors committee must then 
certify by their signatures on the 
application that the project in 
question is academically legitimate 
and worthy of pursuit as an honors 
project, and that the student in 
question is qualified to pursue the 
project. 

— the project must be approved by the 
Committee on Individual Studies. 

Students successfully complete hon- 
ors projects by satisfying the following 
conditions in accordance with guide- 
lines established by the Committee on 
Individual Studies; 

— the student must produce a sub- 
stantial research paper, critical 
study, or creative project. If the 
end product is a creative project, a 
critical paper analyzing the tech- 
niques and principles employed 
and the nature of the achievement 
represented in the project shall be 
submitted. 

— the student must successfully 
explain and defend the work in a 
final oral examination given by the 
honors committee. 

— the honors committee must certify 
that the student has successfully 
defended the project, and that the 
student's achievement is clearly 
superior to that which would ordi- 
narily be required to earn a grade of 
"A" in a regular independent- 
studies course. 

— the Committee on Individual 
Studies must certify that the stu- 



14 



dent has satisfied all of the condi- 
tions mentioned above. 

Except in unusual circumstances, honors 
projects are expected to involve 
independent study in two consecutive 
unit courses. Successful completion of 
the honors project will cause the desig- 
nation of honors in that department to be 
placed upon the permanent record. 
Acceptable theses are deposited in the 
College library. In the event that the 
study is not completed successfully or is 
not deemed worthy of honors, the stu- 
dent shall be re-registered in independent 
studies and given a final grade for the 
course. 

Auditors — Any person may audit 
courses at Lycoming at one-fourth tui- 
tion per course. Laboratory and other 
special fees must be paid in full. Exami- 
nations, papers, and other evaluation 
devices are not required of auditors, but 
individual arrangements may be made to 
complete such exercises with the consent 
of the instructor. The option to audit a 
course must be declared during the same 
period (currently five days) at the begin- 
ning of each semester, half-semester, or 
term as drop/add and pass/fail and must 
be completed in the Registrar's Office. 

SPECIAL FEATURES 

Developmental Program — The 

developmental program is provided for 
students who are identified as being able 
to benefit from specialized classroom 
instruction in college-level reading and 
writing skills. Students develop these 
basic skills in the context of the regular 
academic curriculum. Both reading and 
writing skills are taught as part of an 
integrated curriculum consisting of a 
one-half unit course in developmental 
writing (ENGLISH 005) and a one-half 
unit course in developmental reading and 
study skills (EDUCATION 005). These 
courses are coordinated with one of the 
following social science courses: his- 
tory, political science, sociology, or psy- 
chology. 

Independent Studies — Independent 



studies are available to any qualified 
student who wishes to engage in and 
receive academic credit for any 
academically legitimate course of 
study for which he or she could not 
otherwise receive credit. It may be 
pursued at any level (introductory, 
intermediate, or advanced) and in any 
department, whether or not the student 
is a major in that department. Studies 
projects which duplicate catalog 
courses are sometimes possible, and 
are subject to the same provisions 
which apply to all studies projects. In 
order for a student to be registered in 
an independent-study course, the fol- 
lowing conditions must be satisfied: 

faculty must agree to supervise the 
project and must certify by signing 
the application form that the proj- 
ect is academically legitimate and 
involves an amount of work appro- 
priate for the amount of academic 
credit requested, and that the stu- 
dent in question is qualified to 
pursue the project. 

— the studies project must be 
approved by the chairman of the 
department in which the studies 
project is to be undertaken. 

— after the project is approved by the 
instructor and by the chairman of 
the appropriate department, the 
studies project must be approved 
by the Committee on Individual 
Studies. 

In addition, participation in 
independent-studies projects, with the 
exception of those which duplicate cata- 
log courses, is subject to the following: 

— students may not engage in more 
than one independent-studies pro- 
ject during any given semester. 

— students may not engage in more 
than two independent-studies proj- 
ects during their academic careers 
at Lycoming College. 

As with other academic policies, any 
exceptions to these two rules must be 
approved by the Academic Standing 
Committee. 



Internship Program — An intern- 
ship is a course jointly sponsored by the 
College and a public or private agency or 
subdivision of the Collge in which a 
student is enabled to earn college credit 
by participating in some active capacity 
as an assistant, aide, or apprentice. At 
least one-half of the effort expended by 
the intern should consist of academic 
work related to agency situations. The 
objectives of the internship program are 
( 1 ) to further the development of a centr- 
al core of values, awarenesses, strate- 
gies, skills, and information through 
experiences outside the classroom or 
other campus situations, and (2) to facil- 
itate the integration of theory and prac- 
tice by encouraging students to relate 
their on-campus academic experiences 
more directly to society in general and to 
possible career and other post- 
baccalaureate objectives in particular. 

Any junior or senior student in good 
academic standing may petition the 
Committee on Individual Studies for 
approval to serve as an intern. A maxi- 
mum of 16 credits can be earned through 
the internship program. Guidelines for 
program development, assignment of 
tasks and academic requirements, such 
as exams, papers, reports, grades, etc.. 
are established in consultation with a 
faculty director at Lycoming and an 
agency supervisor at the place of intern- 
ship. 

Students with diverse majors have 
participated in a wide variety of intern- 
ships, including those with the Allen- 
wood Federal Prison Camp, Lycoming 
County Commissioners Office, Depart- 
ment of Environmental Resources, Head 
Start, Lycoming County Historical Soci- 
ety, business and accounting firms, law 
offices, hospitals, social service agen- 
cies, banks, and Congressional offices. 

May Term — The May term is a 
four-week voluntary session designed to 
provide students with courses listed in 
the catalog and experimental and special 
courses that are not normally available 
during the fall and spring semesters and 
summer term. Some courses are offered 
on campus; others involve travel. A 
number offer interdisciplinary credit. 



Illustrations of the types of courses 
offered during the May term are: 

(a) Study-Travel: Cultural tours of 
Germany, Spain, and France; Archae- 
logical expeditions to the Middle East; 
Anthropological expeditions to study 
tri-cultural communities in New Mexico; 
Utopian Communities; Revolutionary 
and Civil War Sites; Colonial America 
on Tour; Art on the East Coast; The New 
Kingdom in Ancient Egypt. 

(b) On-Campus: Field Geology, Field 
Ornithology, Energy Economics, Writ- 
er's Seminar, Psychology of Group Pro- 
cesses, Collective Bargaining, Aquatic 
Biology. Medical Genetics, Energy 
Alternatives, White Collar Crime, 
Lasers and their Applications, Selected 
Short Story Writers and their Works, 
Popular Forms of Contemporary Fiction, 
Administrative and Organizational 
Behavior of Police, Plant and Green- 
house Management, and Street Law. 

Although participation in the May 
term is voluntary, student response has 
been outstanding with approximately 20 
percent of the student body enrolling. In 
addition to the courses themselves, 
attractions include small and informal 
classes and reduced tuition rates. 

Part Time Students — Students who 
do not wish to pursue a degree at 
Lycoming College may, if space per- 
mits, register for credit or audit courses 
on either a part-time or full-time basis. 
Students who register for one or two 
courses are considered to be enrolled part 
time; students who register for three or 
four courses are considered to be 
enrolled full time. 

Anyone wishing to register as a non- 
degree student must fill out an applica- 
tion form in the Admissions Office, pay a 
one-time application fee of $20, and pay 
the tuition rate in effect at the time of 
each enrollment. After a non-degree stu- 
dent has attempted four courses, the 
Dean of the College reserves the right to 
grant or deny permission to continue to 
register in this category. 

All non-degree students are subject to 
the general laws and regulations of the 
College as stated in the College Catalog 
and the Student Handbook. The College 



reserves the right to deny permission to 
register to individuals who do not meet 
the standards of the College. 

Students who wish to change from a 
non-degree to a degree status must re- 
apply (with no application fee) and satis- 
fy all conditions for admission and 
registration in effect at the time of appli- 
cation for degree status. 

Study Abroad — Students have the 
opportunity to study abroad under aus- 
pices of approved universities and agen- 
cies. While study abroad is particularly 
attractive to students majoring in foreign 
languages and literatures, this opportu- 
nity is open to all students in good 
academic standing. Mastery of a foreign 
language is desirable but not required in 
all programs. Dr. Richard Barker, assis- 
tant professor of foreign languages and 
literatures, serves as coordinator for the 
Study Abroad Program. Interested stu- 
dents may contact him about opportuni- 
ties available and procedural questions. 

Teacher Intern Program — The pur- 
pose of the teacher intern program is to 
provide individuals who have completed 
a baccalaureate degree with the oppor- 
tunity to become certified teachers 
through on-the-job training. Interns can 
be certified in elementary education or 
one or more of the following secondary 
areas: art, biology, chemistry, English, 
French, general science (with biology or 
astronomy/physics tracks, German, 
mathematics, music, physics, social stu- 
dies, and Spanish. 

Interested individuals should file a for- 
mal application with the Education 
Department for admission to the Intern 
Program. Upon completion of the appli- 
cation process, interns receive a letter of 
Intern Candidacy from the Pennsylvania 
Department of Education which the can- 
didate then uses to apply for a teaching 
position. Necessary professional 
coursework can be completed prior to the 
teaching experience or coordinated with 
the teaching experience when individu- 
als obtain teaching positions. 



NOTE: Lycoming College cannot assume 
responsibility for the liealth, safety, or welfare 



of any student engaged in or en route to or from 
any off-campus study or activity not under the 
exclusive jurisdiction of this institution. 

COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS 

Lycoming has developed several 
cooperative programs to provide stu- 
dents with opportunities to extend their 
knowledge, abilities, and talents in 
selected areas through access to the spe- 
cialized academic programs and facili- 
ties of other colleges, universities, 
academies, and hospitals. Although 
thorough advisement and curricular 
planning are provided for each of the 
cooperative programs, admission to 
Lycoming and registration in the prog- 
ram of choice do not guarantee admis- 
sion to the cooperating institution. The 
prerogative of admitting students to the 
cooperative aspect of the program rests 
with the cooperating institution. Stu- 
dents who are interested in a cooperative 
program should contact the coordinator 
during the first week of the first semester 
of their enrollment at Lycoming. This is 
necessary to plan their course programs 
in a manner that will insure completion 
of required courses according to the 
schedule stipulated for the program. All 
cooperative programs require special 
coordination of course scheduling at 
Lycoming. 

Engineering — Combining the 
advantages of a liberal-arts education 
and the technical training of an engi- 
neering curriculum, this program is 
offered in conjunction with The Pennsyl- 
vania State University. Students com- 
plete three years of study at Lycoming 
and two years at the cooperating univer- 
sity. Upon satisfactory completion of the 
first year of engineering studies. 
Lycoming awards the bachelor of arts 
degree. When students successfully 
complete the second year of engineering 
studies, the cooperating university 
awards the bachelor of science degree in 
engineering. 

At Lycoming, students complete the 
distribution program and courses in 
physics, mathematics, and chemistry. 
The Pennsylvania State University offers 



16 



aerospace, agricultural, chemical, civil, 
electrical, engineering science, environ- 
mental, industrial, mechanical, and 
nuclear engineering. 

Forestry or Environmental Studies 

— Lycoming College offers a coopera- 
tive program with Duke University in 
environmental management and forest- 
ry. Qualified students can earn the 
bachelor's and master's degrees in five 
years, spending three years at Lycoming 
and two years at Duke. All Lycoming 
distribution and major requirements 
must be completed by the end of the 
junior year. At the end of the first year at 
Duke, the A.B. degree will be awarded 
by Lycoming. Duke will award the pro- 
fessional degree of Master of Forestry or 
Master of Environmental Management 
to qualified candidates at the end of the 
second year. 

The major program emphases at Duke 
are Forest Resource Management, 
Resource Economics and Policy, and 
Resource Ecology. The program is flexi- 
ble enough, however, to accommodate a 
variety of individual designs. An under- 
graduate major in one of the natural sci- 
ences, social sciences, or business may 
provide good preparation for the prog- 
rams at Duke, but a student with any 
undergraduate concentration will be con- 
sidered for admission. All students need 
at least two courses each in biology, 
mathematics, and economics. 

Students begin the program at Duke in 
July after their junior year at Lycoming 
with a one-month session of field work in 
natural resource measurements. They 
must complete a total of 48 units which 
generally take four semesters. 

Some students prefer to complete the 
bachelor's degree before undertaking 
graduate study at Duke. The master's 
degree requirements for these students 
are the same as for those students enter- 
ing after the junior year, but the 48 unit 
requirement may be reduced for com- 
pleted relevant undergraduate work of 
satisfactory quality. All credit reductions 
are determined individually and consider 
the student's educational background 
and objectives. 



Medical Technology — Students 
desiring a career in medical technology 
may either complete a bachelor of arts 
program followed by a clinical internship 
at any American Medical Association- 
accredited hospital, or they may com- 
plete the cooperative program. Students 
electing the cooperative program nor- 
mally study for three years at Lycoming, 
during which time they complete 24 unit 
courses, including the College distribu- 
tion requirements, a major, and require- 
ments of the National Accrediting Agen- 
cy for Clinical Laboratory Sciences 
(NAACLS). The current requirements of 
the NAACLS are: four courses in chemi- 
stry (one of which must be either organic 
or bio-chemistry); four courses in biolo- 
gy (including courses in microbiology 
and immunology), and one course in 
mathemtics. 

Students in the cooperative program 
usually major in biology, following a 
modified major of six unit courses that 
exempts them from Ecology (Biology 
224) and Plant Sciences (Biology 225). 
Students must take either Microbiology 
(Biology 221) or Microbiology for the 
Health Sciences (Biology 226), and 
either Animal Physiology (Biology 223) 
or Cell Physiology (Biology 335). The 
cooperative program requires successful 
completion of a one-year internship at an 
American Medical Association- 
accredited hospital. Lycoming is affil- 
iated with the following accredited hos- 
pitals: Divine Providence, Robert Pack- 
er, Lancaster, and Abington. Students in 
the cooperative program receive credit at 
Lycoming for each of eight unit courses 
in biology and chemistry successfullly 
completed during the clinical internship. 
Successful completion of the Registry 
Examination is not considered a gradua- 
tion requirement at Lycoming College. 

Students entering a clinical internship 
for one year after graduation from 
Lycoming must complete all of the 
requirements of the cooperative prog- 
ram, but are not eligible for the biology 
major exemptions indicated above. 
Upon graduation, such students may 
apply for admission to a clinical program 
at any hospital. 



Optometry — Through the Acceler- 
ated Optometry Education Curriculum 
Program, students interested in a career 
in optometry may qualify for admission 
to the Pennsylvania College of Optome- 
try after only three years at Lycoming 
College. After four years at the Pennsyl- 
vania College of Optometry a student 
will earn a Doctor of Optometry degree. 
Selection of candidates for the profes- 
sional segment of the program is com- 
pleted by the admissions committee of 
the Pennsylvania College of Optometry 
during the student's third year at 
Lycoming. (This is one of two routes that 
students may choose. Any student, of 
course, may follow the regular applica- 
tion procedures for admission to the Pen- 
nsylvania College of Optometry or 
another college of optometry to matricu- 
late following completion of his or her 
baccalaureate program.) During the 
three years at Lycoming College, the 
student will complete 24 unit courses, 
including all distribution requirements, 
and will prepare for his or her profession- 
al training by obtaining a solid founda- 
tion in biology, chemistry, physics, and 
mathematics. During the first year of 
study at the Pennsylvania College of 
Optometry, the student will take 39 
semester hours of basic science courses 
in addition to introductions to optometry 
and health care. Successful completion 
of the first year of professional training 
will complete the course requirements 
for the A.B. degree at Lycoming Col- 
lege. 

Most students will find it convenient 
to major in biology in order to satisfy the 
requirements of Lycoming College and 
the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. 
Such students are allowed to complete a 
modified biology major which will 
exempt them from two biology courses: 
Ecology (Biology 224) and Plant Sci- 
ences (Biology 225). (This modified 
major requires the successful completion 
of the initial year at the Pennsylvania 
College of Optometry.) Students desir- 
ing other majors must coordinate their 
plans with the Health Professions Advis- 
ory Committee in order to insure that 
they have satisfied all requirements. 



The Philadelphia Urban Semester — 

A full semester liberal arts program for 
professional development and field study 
is now available to Lycoming students. 
The program components are: field 
placement; City Seminar; evening semi- 
nars; and living and learning in the city. 
The program is open to students major- 
ing in any discipline or program. The 
Philadelphia Urban Semester is spon- 
sored and administered by the Great 
Lakes Colleges Association (Albion, 
Antioch, Denison, De Pauw, Earlham, 
Hope. Kalamazoo, Kenyon. Oberlin, 
Ohio Wesleyan, Wabash, Wooster). 

Normally the above special-semester 
programs are open only to juniors. 

NOTE: Lycoming College cannot assume 
responsibility for the health, safety, or welfare 
of students engaged in or en route to or from any 
off-campus studies or activities which are not 
under the exclusive jurisdiction of this institu- 
tion. 

Podiatry — Students interested in 
podiatry may either seek admission to a 
college of pediatric medicine upon com- 
pletion of the bachelor of arts degree or 
through the Accelerated Pediatric Medi- 
cal Education-Curriculum Program 
(APMEC). The latter program provides 
an opportunity for students to qualify for 
admission to the Pennsylvania College of 
Podiatric Medicine (PCPM) or the Ohio 
College of Podiatric Medicine (OCPM) 
after three years of study at Lycoming. 
At Lycoming, students in the APMEC 
program must successfully complete 24 
unit courses, including the distribution 
program and a basic foundation in biolo- 
gy, chemistry, physics, and mathema- 
tics. During the first year of studyt at 
PCPM or OCPM, students must success- 
fully complete a program of basic sci- 
ence courses and an introduction to 
podiatry. Successful completion of the 
first year of professional training will 
contribute toward the fulfillment of the 
course requirements for the bachelor of 
arts degree at Lycoming. 

Most students in the cooperative prog- 
ram will major in biology; if so, they will 
be allowed to complete a modified major 
which will exempt them from two biolo- 
gy courses: Ecology (Biology 224) and 



Plant Sciences (Biology 225). (This 
modified major requires the successful 
completion of the initial year at PCPM or 
OCPM). 

Students interested in a career in 
podiatric medicine should indicate their 
intentions to the Health Professions 
Advisory Committee. 

Reserve Officers Training Corps 
Program (R.O.T.C.) — The program 
provides an opportunity for Lycoming 
students to enroll in R.O.T.C. Lycoming 
notes enrollment in and successful com- 
pletion of the program on student tran- 
scripts. Military Science is a four-year 
program divided into a basic course 
given during the freshman and sopho- 
more years and an advanced course given 
during the junior and senior years. Stu- 
dents who have not completed the basic 
course may qualify for the advanced 
course by completing summer camp 
between the sophomore and junior years. 
Students enrolled in the advanced course 
receive an annual stipend of $1,000. 
Students successfully completing the 
advanced course and advanced summer 
camp between the junior and senior years 
will qualify for a commission as a Sec- 
ond Lieutenant in the United States 
Army upon graduation, and will incur a 
service obligation in the active Army or 
Army Reserves. The only expense to the 
student for this program is the $60 
advanced course uniform deposit. 

Sculpture — The Art Department 
with the Johnson Atelier Technical 
Institute of Sculpture in Mercerville. 
New Jersey, offers a BFA degree in 
sculpture. It uses a classical apprentice- 
ship approach as its teaching method. 
This ancient method of teaching is com- 
bined at Johnson with the most modem 
and technically advanced foundry and 
fabricating techniques. 

The Art Department offers a synthesis 
program that interrelates the student 
experience at both institutions. This is 
achieved by having the student rotate 
between Lycoming and the atelier so that 
each form of education is preparation for 
the other. Lycoming offers a core 
academic program, a course of study in 



the Art Department, and elective course 
opportunities. Lycoming gives eight 
course units of college credit to the stu- 
dent for having successfully completed 
one of the apprenticeship programs at the 
Johnson Atelier. 

All work completed by the student at 
Lycoming by the end of the sophomore 
year will be applicable to a bachelor of 
arts degree with a major in art should the 
student decide to withdraw from the BFA 
program. If the student should withdraw 
from the cooperative program prior to 
completing the apprenticeship at the 
Johnson Atelier, Lycoming will give up 
to four units of credit or one semester's 
work for the internship. If, however, the 
student completes more work at the atel- 
ier than the four units, that extra work 
will not be credited to the bachelor of arts 
degree; it will only be used as part of the 
bachelor of fine arts degree, and then 
only if the course at the atelier is com- 
pleted. 

This course of study is very rigorous. 
It will require that the student be 
involved almost continuously, either at 
Lycoming or at the Johnson Atelier, 
during the four years it will take to com- 
plete the degree. (See Art Department 
listing for specific program.) 

Student Enrichment Semester — 

This voluntary program is designed to 
expand academic and life opportunities 
for students and to provide for participa- 
tion in specialized programs and courses 
not available at Lycoming. Other mem- 
bers of the program are Bucknell and 
Susquehanna Universities, the Williams- 
port Area Community College, and 
Bloomsburg. Lock Haven, and Man- 
sfield Universities. Students other than 
freshmen enroll full or part time for 
credit, normally for one semester or 
term, at any participating institution in 
selected courses. Students in the prog- 
ram remain fully enrolled as degree can- 
didates at their home institutions. A spe- 
cial opportunity within the program is the 
cross-registration arrangement with the 
Williamsport Area Community College, 
whereby students may enroll for less than 
a full-time course load while remaining 
enrolled in courses at Lycoming. 



Student Teaching Abroad — Lycom- 
ing College has estabished a cooperation 
program with Moorhead State University 
whereby teacher education students may 
do all or part of their student teaching in a 
foreign country. 

This program offers exceptional stu- 
dents the opportunity to student teach in 
nearly any country in the world. Students 
are placed in independent international 
schools where English is the instruction- 
al language. An effort is made to assign 
students in geographical areas that will 
enrich their backgrounds, serve their 
special interests and expand their cultural 
horizons. 

Washington, United Nations and 
London Semester and Capitol Semes- 
ter Internship Program — With the 
consent of the Department of Political 
Science, selected students are permitted 
to study in Washington, D.C., at The 
American University for one semester. 
They may choose from seven different 
programs: Washington Semester, Urban 
Semester, Foreign Policy Semester, 
International Development Semester, 
Economic Policy Semester, Science and 
Technology Semester, American Studies 
Semester. 

With the consent of either the Depart- 
ment of History or Political Science, 
selected students may enroll at Drew 
University in Madison, New Jersey, in 
the United Nations Semester, which is 
designed to provide a first-hand 
acquaintance with the world organiza- 
tion. Students with special interests in 
world history, international relations, 
law, and politics are eligible to partici- 
pate. 

The London Semester programs of 
Drew and The American Universities 
emphasize European history, politics,

THE SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The Lycoming College Scholar Prog- 
ram is a special program designed to 
meet the needs and aspirations of highly 
motivated students of superior intellectu- 
al ability. The Lycoming Scholar satis- 
fies the general distribution require- 
ments, but on a more exacting level and 
with more challenging courses than the 
average student. Lycoming Scholars also 
participate in special courses and semi- 
nars and in serious independent study 
culminating in a senior project super- 
vised by their major department. 

Students are admitted to the program 
by invitation of the Scholar Council, the 
group which oversees the program. The 
council consists of four students elected 
by current scholars and four faculty 
selected by the Dean of the College. The 
guidelines governing selection of new 
scholars are flexible: academic excel- 
lence, intellectual curiosity, and creativ- 
ity are all taken into account. Students 
who desire to participate in the Scholar 
Program but are not invited may petition 
the Scholar Council for consideration. 

To remain in the program, students 
must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better. 
Students dropping below this average 
will be placed on Scholar probation until 
their average improves, or they are asked 
to leave the program. To graduate as a 
Scholar, a student must have at least a 
3.0 cumulative average. Scholars must 
take the First Year Scholar Seminar dur- 
ing their first semester in the program. In 
addition, the following distribution 
requirements must be met. (Slightly 
modified requirements exist for students 
in the cooperative programs; a list of 
these requirements can be obtained from 
the Scholar Council.)

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES 

Associate Professor: Larson 
(Coordinator) 

The major is designed to integrate an 
understanding of the changing social, 
political, and historical environment of 
Europe today with study of Europe in its 



relations to the rest of the world, particu- 
larly the United States. It stresses the 
international relations of the North 
Atlantic community and offers the stu- 
dent opportunity to emphasize either 
European studies or international rela- 
tions. The program provides multiple 
perspectives on the cultural traits that 
shape popular attitudes and institutions. 
Study of a single country is included as a 
data-base for comparisons, and study of 
its language, as a basis for direct commu- 
nication with its people. 

The program is intended to prepare a 
student either for graduate study or for 
careers which have an international com- 
ponent. International obligations are 
increasingly assumed by government 
agencies and a wide range of business, 
social, religious, and educational organi- 
zations. Opportunities are found in the 
fields of journalism, publishing, com- 
munications, trade, banking, advertis- 
ing, management, and tourism. The pro- 
gram also offers flexible career 
preparation in a variety of essential 
skills, such as research, data analysis, 
report writing, languge skills, and the 
awareness necessary for dealing with 
people and institutions of another cul- 
ture. Preparation for related careers can 
be obtained through the guided selection 
of courses outside the major in the areas 
of business, economics, foreign lan- 
guages and literatures, government, his- 
tory, and international relations or 
through a second major. Students should 
design their programs in consultation 
with members of the Committee on Inter- 
national Studies. 

By completing six to eight additional 
courses in the social sciences (which 
include those courses needed to complete 
a major in economics, history, political 
science, or sociology/anthropology) and 
the required program in eduction, stu- 
dents can be certified for the teacher 
education program in social studies. By 
completing a major in the foreign lan- 
guage (five or more courses) and the 
education program, students can be certi- 
fied to teach that language. The Interna- 
tional Studies program also encourages 
participation in study-abroad programs.

year, in which students and several faculty 
members will pursue an integrative topic in 
the field of international studies. Students 
will work to some extent independently. 
Guest speakers will be invited. The seminar 
will be open to qualified persons from out- 
side the major and the College. Prerequisite: 
consent of instructor. 



LITERATURE 

Associate Professor: Maples 
(Coordinator) 

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, 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 developing 
and applying skills in foreign languages. 
The major prepares students for graduate 
study in either of the two literatures 
studied or in comparative literature. 

The major requires at least six litera- 
ture courses, equally divided between 
the two literatures concerned. The six 
must be at the advanced level as deter- 
mined in consultation with advisors (nor- 
mally courses numbered 200 and above 
in English and 4(X) and above in foreign 
languges). In general, two of the 
advanced courses in each literature 
should be period courses. The third 
course, taken either as a regular course or 
an independent study, may have as its 



subject another period, a particular 
author, genre, or literary theme, or some 
other unifying approach or idea. Beyond 
these six, the major must include at least 
two additional courses from among those 
counting toward a major in the depart- 
ments involved. Any prerequisite 
courses in the respective departments 
(for example: English 106, French 
221-222 or 228, German 221-222. 
Spanish 22 1 -222) should be taken during 
the freshman year. Students should 
design their programs in consultation 
with a faculty member from each of the 
literatures concerned. Programs for the 
major must be approved by the depart- 
ments involved.

interdisciplinary major is designed to ac- 
quaint students with the "cradle of West- 
em civilization," both in its ancient and 
modem aspects. Majors will complete a 
minimum of eight to ten courses related 
to the Near East. 

Required courses are described in their 
departmental sections and include: 

1. Four courses in language and cul- 
ture from: 

History and Culture of the Ancient 
Near East (Religion 228)

2. Two courses in archaeology from: 
Biblical Archaeology (Religion 226) 
Special Archaeology courses, such as 
independent studies or in May or 
summer terms in the Near East. 

3. Two courses in the cooperating 
departments (art, history, political 
science, religion and sociology- 
anthropology) or related depart- 
ments. 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 commit- 
tee supervising the interdisciplinary 
program. The study of modem Arabic

Nursing 221, the obstetrical compo- 
nent of Nursing 330, 331, 332, 334, 
and 440. For successful challenge of 
any clinical nursing course by regis- 
tered nurses, a grade of C- or better is 
required; that is, 70% or 1.67 is 
required in both the theoretical and 
clinical components of the course. 

Additional information for registered 
nurses seeking the BSN is available from 
the Department of Nursing. Individual 
advisement is offered to all registered 
nurses.

PHILOSOPHY 

Associate Professor: Griffith, Whelan 
Assistant Professor: Herring 
(Chairperson) 

The study of philosophy develops a 
critical understanding of the basic con- 
cepts and presuppositions around which 
we organize our thought in science, 
religion, education, morality, the arts, 
and other human enterprises. A major in 
philosophy, together with appropriate 
other courses, can provide an excellent 
preparation for policy-making positions 
of many kinds, for graduate study in 
several fields, and for careers in educa- 
tion, law, and the ministry. The major in 
philosophy consists of eight courses 
numbered 1 10 or above, including 438, 
439, 449 and at least three other courses 
numbered 225 or above. 

A minor in Philosophy consists of any 
four philosophy courses numbered 220 
or above or any five philosophy courses 
number 110 or above, three of which 
must be numbered 300 or above. Three 
more specialized minors are also avail- 
able: a minor in Philosophy and Law 
consists of four courses from Philoso- 
phy 221, 222, 225, 334, 335. 449 or 
Independent Studies or five courses 
including any three courses from the 
preceding list and any two courses 
from Philosophy 1 15, 216, 218, 219; a 
minor in Philosophy and Science con- 
sists of four courses from Philosophy 
221, 222, 225, 333. 449 or Independ- 
ent Studies; a minor in the History of 
Philosophv consists of four courses 
from Philosophy 221, 222, 438, 439. 



51 



449 or Independent Studies. Since

aged to register for this course during 
their freshman year. An exemption will 
be granted only if it strengthens the stu- 
dent's program. In addition to 116B, 



students must take at least one course in 
each of five areas (A to E). Students are 
encouraged, also, to select a minor in 
another department in accordance with 
their academic and career interests and in

RESIDENCE AND 
RESIDENCE HALLS 

Single students who do not live at home 
are required to live in residence halls and 
eat in the dining room. All new resident 
students are forwarded a room- 
agreement form to sign after confirma- 
tion of their admission to Lycoming. 
This agreement is renewed each spring. 
Exceptions to the residence policy may 
be granted to those students who wish to 
live with relatives, and students who are 
23 years of age or older. Requests for 
such exemptions must be submitted to 
the Residence Life Office before the first 
day of the term to which the student has 
been admitted. 

Residence students assume responsi- 
bility for their rooms and furnishings. 
The College reserves the right to enter 
and inspect any room for reasons of dam- 
age, health, or safety, and to search any 
room when there is reason to believe a 
violation of College rules or the law is 
occurring or has occurred. Charges are 



assessed for damage to rooms, doors, 
furniture and common areas. Wherever 
possible, damage to dormitory property 
will be charged to the person or persons 
directly responsible. Damage and break- 
age occurring in a room will be the 
responsibility of students occupying the 
room. Hall and bathroom damage will be 
the responsibility of the section where 
damage occurs. 

Residence halls are not available for 
occupancy during the vacation periods. 
Quiet hours for study purposes, which 
are established by residence hall councils 
or the Office of Student Services, are 
published in the student handbook and 
posted on bulletin boards. 

Room visitation by members of the 
opposite sex is permitted in the halls 
under conditions established by the Col- 
lege in cooperation with the various resi- 
dence hall councils, which share respon- 
sibility for developing and monitoring 
regulations, and which are organized 
each fall semester before visitation 
schedules are established. 



STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Student Activities offers assistance 
and advice for all campus programs 
and student organizations. Through the 
efforts of the Campus Activities Board 
(C.A.B.) programming is provided for 
all facets of the student population. 
The Wertz Advisory Board oversees 
the functional aspects of the Wertz 
Student Center and works to create an 
atmosphere which best serves the 
social and recreational needs of the 
students. Student Activities is also 
responsible for Leadership Training 
and the Student Orientation Staff; in 
addition, it provides support and 
direction for student government, the 
Interfraternity and Panhellenic Coun- 
cils and the retention program. 

RELIGIOUS LIFE 

The United Campus Ministry, staffed 
by a Protestant Minister and a Roman 
Catholic Priest, provides a wide range of 



61 



activities in support of the religious lives 
of students. Ecumenical and inclusive in 
nature, campus ministry at Lycoming 
provides worship services, service proj- 
ects, social occasions, retreats, study 
opportunities and personal counseling. 
The chaplains live on campus and are 
available to students for a variety of 
situations in which they might need sup- 
port, counsel or direction. 

HEALTH SERVICES 

Normal medical treatment by the 
health service staff at the College is pro- 
vided without cost to the student. During 
the fall and spring semesters, the College 
maintains an outpatient service in Rich 
Hall. It is staffed with a registered nurse 
five days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 4 
p.m. The College physician is available 
from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, Monday 
through Friday. At other times, 
emergency care is available at the 
emergency rooms of Williamsport and 
Divine Providence Hospitals, located a 
short distance from the campus. 

Medical service charges paid by the 
student are; emergency room and 
emergency room physician's charges, 
special medications. X-rays, surgery, 
care for major accidents, immunizations, 
examinations for glasses, physician's 
visits other than in the health service. 
referrals for treatment by specialists, 
special nursing services and special ser- 
vices. 

Entering students must provide basic 
health information to the College 
between the time of admission and the 
beginning of classes of the term to which 
they are admitted. This information is 
secured through participation in the com- 
puterized health-information service 
provided by National Computer Sys- 
tems. New students complete the Inner- 
view College Health Assessment Form 
that is mailed to students shortly after 
they have confirmed their admission to 
Lycoming. The completed form is 
returned by the student to the admis- 
sion's office together with a check for 
$13.50. Both the student and the College 
receive reports based on the question- 
naire responses. The student report con- 



sists of a Personal Health Report, and 
health information brochures as 
requested. Information provided by the 
student is confidential and is available 
only to qualified health service and 
student-services personnel. 

All students are required to carry 
accident-sickness medical insurance. 
Pre-paid medical insurance is a require- 
ment for participation in intercollegiate 
athletics. Lycoming College does not 
offer a student plan. 



STUDENT ORIENTATION 

New students at Lycoming are 
required to attend one of three summer 
orientation sessions with at least one 
parent before they enroll in the fall. The 
purpose of the program is to acquaint 
new students and their parents with the 
College more fully so that new students 
begin their Lycoming experience under 
the most favorable circumstances. Infor- 
mation on orientation is mailed to new 
students after they confirm their admis- 
sion. 

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT 

Lycoming students are expected to 
accept responsibilities required of adults. 
The rights of every member of the Col- 
lege community are protected by estab- 
lished regulations. Although the accep- 
tance of the College's standards of 
behavior is an individual responsibility, 
it also calls for group responsibility. Stu- 
dents should influence their peers to con- 
duct themselves responsibly for the col- 
lective good. 

Students who are unable to demon- 
strate that they have accepted these 
responsibilities or who fail to abide by 
established policies may be dismissed at 
any time or denied readmission for a 
subsequent term or semester. Further, 
after the conclusion of any term or 
semester, the College may deny a student 
the privilege of attending any subsequent 
term or semester when the administration 
deems this to be in the best interest of the 
College. 

Lycoming College does not approve 



of the use or misuse of alcoholic bever- 
ages and encourages students to abstain 
from their use and to abide by the legal 
restrictions on alcohol use established by 
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 
Observance of the law is the individual 
responsibility of each student, and fail- 
ure to obey the law may subject the 
student to prosecution by civil authori- 
ties, either on or off campus. 

Students also are expected to be aware 
of the College's attitude toward the use 
and misuse of alcohol and to acknow- 
ledge the College's right to its position. 
The College will not tolerate any public 
use of alcohol. Officials of the College 
will prescribe penalties for the public use 
or private misuse of alcohol. These 
penalties will be applied in a consistent 
manner. 

Lycoming recognizes its responsibili- 
ty, however, for providing students with 
reliable information about the social and 
medical implications of the use of alco- 
hol. Lycoming makes every effort to 
create and maintain a community in 
which individual choice is coupled with 
responsible behavior and respect for the 
rights of others. 

Upon confirmation of admission, stu- 
dents are given a handbook which con- 
tains the College's official policies, rules 
and regulations. These policies, rules 
and regulations are part of the contractual 
agreement students enter into when they 
register at Lycoming.

FINANCIAL AID

onstrate need. Part-time employment is 
available to students.

1987-88 Alumni Association 
Executive Board 



The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has a mem- 
bership of nearly 1 1 ,000 men and women. It is governed by an 
executive board consisting of 24 members-at-large, elected 
through mail ballot by the membership of the association. The 
board also has members representing specific geographic 
areas, the senior class president, the student body president, 
and past presidents of the last graduating class and the Student 
Association of Lycoming College. The association annually 
designates one alumni representative as a nominee for a three- 
year term on the College board of trustees. The Director of 
Alumni and Parent Relations directs the activities of the alum- 
ni office. The Alumni Association has the following purpose 
as stated in its constitution: "As an off-campus constituency, 
the association's purpose is to seek ways of maintaining an 
active and mutually beneficial relationship between the Col- 
lege and its alumni, utilizing their talents, resources and coun- 
sel to further the objective and program of Lycoming Col- 
lege." 

All former students of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary 
and all former students who have successfully completed one 
year of study at Williamsport Dickinson Junior College or 
Lycoming College are considered members of the association. 

Acting as the representative of alumni on the campus and 
working also with undergraduates, the alumni office is re- 
sponsible for keeping alumni informed and interested in the 
programs, growth, and activities of the College through regu- 
lar publications mailed to all alumni on record. Arrangements 
for Homecoming, class reunions, club meetings, and similar 
activities are coordinated through this office. Through the 
Lycoming College Fund, the alumni office is closely associ- 
ated with the development program of the College. Com- 
munications to the alumni association should be addressed to 
the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations.
